Post Making rootkits / disabling software eject
I've finally had it with these damn disc burning programs that won't let you disable "eject when done". I don't even want to bother hunting for decent equivilent programs anymore, just want to disable the damn thing once and for all.

I'm thinking of trying to take over whatever API calls Windows has to open/close the drive so I can just shut them down / make them do whatever *I* want. It's my (possibly mistaken) understanding that this would involve writing what would essentially amount to a rootkit.

So...unless anyone has a better idea of how to get the result I'm looking for, can anyone point me in the right direction for taking over an Windows API function and maybe what specific API functions I should be aiming at?

I use Nero and under the preferences under the expert features tab there is a checkbox to not eject the disc when the burn is complete.

But i do applaude the need to 'overengineer' a solution.

I've come across some programs that do have and respect a "do not eject" setting. But there's always other misc apps I'll need for some reason or another, or I'll try out, that'll still try to eject. Plus 90% of software pisses me off for any number of different reasons. In almost any category of software, there's almost never a program that I like 100%, and this would be one less criteria to deal with.

I'd just like to finally disable it once-and-for-all on a global level.
