Checking for Drive Media

Screen-shot

This program checks the removal and CD-ROM drives for Diskettes, you can either specify a drive or let the program checks all drives on the computer.

The idea of checking disk existance depends on changing the current path to the path of the drive, if an error occurred (with the code 75), that means the computer isn't able to change the path. Consequently, there is no disk in the drive.

The project consists of:

  1. A module where all the functions , declarations and constants are found
  2. A form to demonstrate how to use the module.

The programs input is either the letter of the drive you want to check or just let the program check all drives.

The output is a msgbox specifing whether there is a disk in the drive or not. The program checks the removal or CD-ROM drives only.

The attached zip file contains all neccessary files, the ScreenShot file is a screen shot of the program in case you need it.
