|Location||SMSQ/E for QPC|
QPC is able to use a CD player linked to a PC in order to play Audio CDs at present.
You first of all need to initialise the CD drive by using this command. CD_INIT causes QPC to seach for a CD-ROM drive and initialise the driver.
You can either pass the name of the drive as a parameter or, if you do not use name$, then QPC will use the PC program MSCDEX (if present) to locate the CD-ROM Drive. MSCDEX can be loaded in the PC file AUTOEXEC.BAT if you wish, otherwise the CD drive name must appear in the PC file CONFIG.SYS.
This command will only be recognised once.
The CD player commands and functions will not work if you have not loaded the PC’s CD-ROM driver in config.sys, for example with the line:
CD_PLAY allows you to play CD Audio tracks.
CD_EJECT ejects a disk from the drive, or allows you to insert a new disk.
