after getLogicalDrives you can call getDriveType:

The GetDriveType function determines whether a disk drive is a removable, fixed, CD-ROM, RAM disk, or network drive.

UINT GetDriveType(

    LPCTSTR  lpRootPathName       // address of root path
   );      
Parameters

lpRootPathName

Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the root directory of the disk to return information about. If lpRootPathName is NULL, the function uses the root of the current directory.

Return Value

The return value specifies the type of drive. It can be one of the following values:

Value      Meaning
0      The drive type cannot be determined.
1      The root directory does not exist.
DRIVE_REMOVABLE      The drive can be removed from the drive.
DRIVE_FIXED      The disk cannot be removed from the drive.
DRIVE_REMOTE      The drive is a remote (network) drive.
DRIVE_CDROM      The drive is a CD-ROM drive.
DRIVE_RAMDISK      The drive is a RAM disk.

is this what you're looking for?

The GetLogicalDrives function returns a bitmask representing the currently available disk drives.

DWORD GetLogicalDrives(VOID)


Parameters

This function has no parameters.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is a bitmask representing the currently available disk drives. Bit position 0 (the least-significant bit) is drive A, bit position 1 is drive B, bit position 2 is drive C, and so on.
If the function fails, the return value is zero.
