    Is there a way to use JavaScript to determine:

    (1)whether a user has a CD-ROM drive; and
    (2)what the drive's name is?

    If so, can I write a script to play a media file on the CD (i.e. - a video file -- to avoid streaming)?

    TIA for your help.

    There is no way to do that with JavaScript, you will need something like a Java Applet to do that, and even then you have to ask the user for permission.
