Try this bit of code

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim x As Integer
   
    x = nCheckDrive("e:")
    If x = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Disk in drive"
    Else
        MsgBox "No Disk in drive"
    End If
End Sub

Private Function nCheckDrive(ByVal sDrive As String) As Integer
    On Error GoTo EHDrive
   
    Dim nErrNum As Integer
   
    nErrNum = 0
    Dir$ sDrive
    nCheckDrive = nErrNum
    Exit Function
   
EHDrive:
    nErrNum = Err.Number
   ' MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Next
End Function
