#31: How can I detect a drive type?

If you want to detect a drive type (CD/Floppy/Network...), then you must use a GetDriveType function from Windows API.

For example,

  case GetDriveType('C:\') of
    0: <unknown>;
    1: <root directory does not exist>;
    DRIVE_REMOVABLE: <floppy>;
    DRIVE_FIXED: <hard drive>;
    DRIVE_REMOTE: <network>;
    DRIVE_RAMDISK: <RAM disk>;
