    To expand on CornedBee's comment: Writing to CD is definitely system specific. Cygwin is a set of tools to make it easier to port Linux/Unix style code to Windows. It's aim is to HIDE system-specific details. But it is also not meant to cover ALL of the funcitonality available in Windows.

    I suspect, if you want to use gcc, that gcc-mingw is a better option.

    You could start here, but I don't know of any simple tutorials to implement it: Windows IMAPI (Image Mastering API) - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...06(VS.85).aspx
