Disk Type?

How can I determine a Disk Type (floppy, CD, HD) etc.?

A function would be nice if someone would code it for me!  I'm offering lots of points so I can get this major project finished.

MoonCalf,

Try this function that I use...

////////////////////////////////////////

function DriveType(Drv: String): String;
var
  DType      :      Integer;
begin
  If Pos(':\', Drv)=0 then
        Drv:=Drv+':\';
  DType:=GetDriveType(PChar(Drv));
  Case DType of
    0,1                                          : Result:='unknown';
    DRIVE_REMOVABLE : Result:='Removable Drive';
    DRIVE_FIXED             : Result:='Hard Disk';
    DRIVE_REMOTE             : Result:='Remote Drive';
    DRIVE_CDROM             : Result:='CD-ROM';
    DRIVE_RAMDISK       : Result:='RAM-Disk';
  end;
end;

////////////////////////////////////////

Hope this helps...
