figured out the solution to my problem using:

pb.ioNamePtr = aString;
pb.ioVRefNum = 0;
      
      for(i=1; aErr != nsvErr; i++)
      {
          pb.ioVolIndex = i;
          aErr = PBHGetVInfo((HParmBlkPtr)&pb, false);
 }

Actually, you want to start with ioVolIndex = 0:

  HParamBlockRec hpBlock;
  HVolumeParam *hpb = &hpBlock.volumeParam;
  OSErr err;
  Str31 volName;
  short volIndex;
  Boolean notDone = true;
 
  hpb->ioNamePtr = volName;
  hpb->ioResult = 0;
 
  volIndex=0;
 
  do {
        hpb->ioVRefNum = 0;
        hpb->ioVolIndex = volIndex++;
        err = PBHGetVInfo(&hpBlock,false);
        if (noErr != err) break;

        p2cstr(volName);
        printf("Volume [%d] %s vRefNum = %d\n",hpb->ioVolIndex,volName,hpb->ioVRefNum);

  } while (notDone);
