This might be a little too specific, but does anyone know of a method to force a CD drive to spin continuously while running a Director app? [more inside]

I often make Director presentations on CD-rom (yes, someone is still doing it!) that need to display mpeg videos. If there is music playing on the CD-rom as well, and the CD drive has 'spun down', the music tends to stutter for a second or two as the drive spins up to retrieve the video.
I've tried a number of (increasingly "creative") methods to keep the drive spinning, but to no avail.
I'm thinking that there must be some kind of VB script or Director Xtra that does this, but I'm having trouble tracking something down.
C'mon Metafilter, gimme some of that sweet, sweet pep
