Keyboard shortcut to insert/eject CD

Some time ago, I asked if WinUAE have keyboard shortcuts for the CD-ROM drives, and Toni answered that it will some day.

This is not the right time to implement that feature now? WinUAE already have a complex CD-ROM emulation that can even burn CDs, a complex PPC emulator, and a complex x86 emulator builtin.

Sorry Toni, but the only thing it can't have yet is a keyboard shortcut for inserting/ejecting CD-ROMs! Why, if you did other things previously much more hard than this?

If a real physical CD drive is mapped to WinUAE, you can do this with FKey and a CLI-based eject command.

Thanks. Yes, there is this possibility, but one of the main benefits of a keyboard shortcut is to open the file selector without the need to press F12.

You can eject Physical CDs but also ISO images with the command:

uae-configuration cdimage0 "."

You can create an icon or add the command in some menu

The "uae-configuration" command can also be used to unmount shared folders dragged and dropped on the Workbench, see video

Thanks, I didn't know it worked also for ISO images too.

Thanks for the tip, but I prefer to wait for Toni to implement a keyboard shortcut for CDx: drives like he did for DFx: drives, much time ago.

I'm not really bothered about having a shortcut for ejecting CD-ROMs.

...but I can see that it may be useful for some.

For floppy disk drives it's currently:

Code:
Ejecting Disks:
<END> + <SHIFT> + <F1>    Eject disk in DF0
<END> + <SHIFT> + <F2>    Eject disk in DF1
<END> + <SHIFT> + <F3>    Eject disk in DF2
<END> + <SHIFT> + <F4>    Eject disk in DF3
Just a suggestion, maybe make ejecting CD-ROMs:

Code:
<END> + <SHIFT> + <F5>    Eject CD in CD-ROM

Damiano would not be more comfortable and more easy with a click on Icon or menu, to Eject CD, ISO, Floppy and shared Folders as shown in my video

Among other things convenient you do not need to remember all the function keys

No point asking me Carlo; I can't even think of one occasion where I've needed to eject a CD-ROM from inside emulation.

I was just giving a suggestion, that's all.

Sorry, i don't use CDs much either, but with ADF and Folder you usually drag on WinUAE to share it's very convenient.

That's great.

Personally I use the shortcuts, and the Diskswapper.

Let's not forget
Code:
<END> + <F5>    Load CD in CD-ROM
That's the main reason for all, really.

Done.

But F5 is already reserved for stateload quick key (Didn't you even test it first? ) and it can't be changed because it might be used in existing old saved configs

Currently it is set to F6 but F7 and F8 are also free.

Is that question directed at me Toni?

No, didn't test if "<END> + <F5>" or "<END> + <Shift> + <F5>" were free...

It would be best if the CD insert / eject was <F5>, just so it follows the floppy disk drive ones

I read that you said about why you've made it <F6>... but all my config files are v1.0.0 based; nothing about "state" besides the following, so I don't see where this would be set:

Code:
state_replay=no
state_replay_rate=250
state_replay_buffer=20971520
Nothing in the registry either.

I should concord with DamienD in this area. With the "stateload quick key" in front of the "CDx: quick key" someone could press the first thinking he was pressing the latter to eject the CD. And so, all the work would be erased from memory with a press of the F5 key, if it was pressed alone by accident.

Would be best if the "CDx: quick key" was put to F5, and F6 was used as an unused key between the two, and the "stateload quick key" moved to F7.

You don't need this feature in WinUAE. You can use WolnyCD (Aminet):
Code:
WolnyCD DEVICE=uaescsi.device UNIT=0
It's easy to bind it to a key combo (F-Key commodity, MCP etc...) or just double-clicking its icon.

Yes but as said with the command ""uae-configuration"" you can do much more than just unmount CDs, ISOs, you can unmount Floppy, USB devices, shared folders, also as for other commands you can associate it to any key on your keyboard even in your own language.

CD change is now END+F5 and statefile was moved to END+F6. It was possible without bad side-effects.

WolnyCD does not work with ISO images and then it is much easier to use a function key or click from the menu.

[ Show youtube player ]
