    I suggest you search msdn for that:

    msdn.microsoft.com

    Windows XP does it by default and MSDN is literally SOAKING in functions that do this.

    Windows loves to auto read discs. It does it all the time. It does it by default, but only XP does something about it.

    Try looking it up before you come to us...

    I have read most of your posts and you keep asking for help without demonstrating any prior effort on your part. That doesn't help us, and most of all it doesn't help YOU because it doesn't let US help YOU.

    That's like walking up to someone on the street and asking "What is the answer?" without them having any idea what the question is.

    MSDN is your friend. Search for CFile. Select one of the replays, Find the Class members link and voila. this is what you can do with the CFile class.And how you do it.
