1. Right-click on an empty area of Windows Desktop.
2. Choose New –> Shortcut.
3. In the location box, type the full path to the nircmd.exe file that you downloaded, and append the “cdrom open” command to the end of it, adjusting the drive letter to match your disc drive (For example, if the nircmd.exe file is in C:\Users, you have to type “C:\Users\nircmd.exe” cdrom open X: in the location box. (Note: “X:” refers to your CD/DVD drive letter).
