now how you close it ?

just in case : in linux its eject /dev/cdrom to open and eject -t /dev/cdrom to close. you may have to change cdrom to cdrw dvdrw cdroms/cdrom0 etc depending on the specific computer

One person gave this answer:

There is no such MS-DOS external command to eject CD-ROM drives, except those packaged with CD-ROM drivers. They aren't official MS-DOS commands, though, simply programs supplied by hardware vendors, or written by bored people.

Here's one such utility to eject a CDROM drive from DOS: http://www.ou.edu/pub/simtelnet/msdos/cdrom/fxeject.zip

Try searching this site, there's an iBle on it, but not as a Batch script.
