DirListBox Change Initial Default Drive in Box to a:

I notice when using dirlistbox , the default is c:
ie. the dirlistbox initially shows c:

Is there a way of making the default =   a: ie (initial display)

if i use Drive1.drive=a:   the program tries to open drive a:, but there is no disk there yet.

The dir list box contains  a:   c:  d:  e:    but lights up the c: at load

Also, is there a way of determining if the drive is removeable ie floppy. as i need to format if this is so.??

Appreciate any help offered.

The code you are using is correct, but, unless you have a disk in, it will fail (no way around this that I know of).

As far as determining the drive type?  Take a look at this code here:

The DirListBox is simple enough that you can emulate it with your own using a simple combobox if you really want this functionality of setting the floppy as the default.
