Can you post an image of how the context menu should look like in the windows 7
It's the example screenshot at the top of the tutorial for only when you right click on the desktop.

Hi
I did what was shown in the instructions but I don't get the same context menu like your picture.

I only get close tray and eject tray separately..

I am using windows 7 64bit

Hello madmax,

The context menu added by the tutorial is only for when you right click on an empty area of your desktop.

It's not added to the drive's context menu in the Computer window.

Well I click on the desktop and it doesn't show that context menu
Actually I click on the desktop just now and I get the same icon as shown in the pic now...

Also can you post an image of what it looks like when u click on the dvd drive?

What windows are u using?
I am on win 7 64bit

It would be good if u can make it show the same icon as the pic when clicking on the dvd drive.

The context menu of a CD/DVD/BD drive doesn't have any icons, and only has the "Eject" option. It's the same in all Windows.

The icon used in the tutorial is a small DVD drive.

Is it normal for the cmd.exe to flash on the screen every time you click to open/close?

Hello usernametaken, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yep, it's normal for the command prompt to very quickly flash open and close when using this context menu.

Ok I can live with that. And thanks for the quick reply. Also, I have my auto play turned off for cd/dvd, is there a way to add a right click play function that works the same way as this one?
