  • I note one of the changes for Windows is device locking... but the readme.windows file still says it doesn't do device locking.  Perhaps the readme should be changed?  Is the device locking now automatic, or is there a new option for it?  Does this mean that it is now OK to concurrently run cdrdao and Windows Explorer at the same time?

     
    • Well, I tried a command, and it apparently attempts to automatically lock the drive.... except that in my case it didn't find the drive letter, so failed to lock the drive.

      The code that searches for the drive letter seems logical, but I have no expertise in that area... something must not be working... I also have no experience building a project that uses cygwin, so that is an additional hurdle to jump before I could even add debugging code to see what is not working for finding the drive letter.  A couple extra lines in README.Win32 could be helpful in that regard, perhaps.
