You might try with FileType["d:\\"], which returns None if the CD is
not inserted and Directory if it is.

The problem is that, in my version 7.0.1.0 on Vista, the dialog pop-up
has a strange behavior: if, from the file system window, I apply Eject
twice, the pop-up window does not appear. If I apply Eject once (as
normally expected) it appears.

You could check if this is the same for XP.
By the way, I do not know how to eject a CD programmatically from
Mathematica. Such a command does not seem to be present
