View Full Version : How to detect CDROM drive

I need to detect CDROM drive on users machine when they open up an HTML page (and later concatinate a file name to open from the CD). Any ideas?

javascript doesn't have access to the client's system information through the browser...

You'd probably need a signed VBscript/Java or something ActiveX to do this...

I'm pretty sure creating a FileSystemObject through IE's ActiveX would be a good start.
