Take my reply with a pinch of salt as Im noob

But dosent the run command have to be on a separate line from DriveGetType ?

#NoTrayIcon
Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
$drive = StringLeft(@ScriptFullPath,2) 
If DriveGetType($Drive&"\") = "CDROM" Then 
Run("Explorer.exe " , $Drive,"\folder1\folder2")

I don't see any change but ( pressing ENTER in the middle of last line )

anyway I tried it but didn't work ... sorry :D

but I took some of this script from this :

$drive = StringLeft(@ScriptFullPath,2) 
If DriveGetType($Drive&"\") = "CDROM" Then CDTray($Drive,"Open")

this script can open the cdrom which contain the script

so I modified to open a specific folder but it didn't work :D

Say, what is $Drive variable from your code?

$Drive is to detect the cdrom drive

1. StringLeft(@ScriptFullPath, 2) returns a letter of the CD-ROM only if you run your script directly from the CD-ROM.

2. Replace Run("Explorer.exe " , $Drive,"\folder1\folder2") to ShellExecute($Drive & "\folder1\folder2").
