$var = DriveGetDrive( "all" )
If NOT @error Then
    MsgBox(4096,"", "Found " & $var[0] & " drives")
    For $i = 1 to $var[0]
        MsgBox(4096,"Drive " & $i, $var[$i])
    Next
EndIf

That tell you want drives there are, you can then search the array for the drive letter your looking for.

$var = DriveGetDrive( "all" )
$drive = "a:"; Change it to your drive letter
If NOT @error Then
   For $i = 1 to $var[0]
      If $var[$i] = $drive Then
       ; Copy data code
      EndIf
   Next
EndIf

You can change what DriveGetDrive() searchs for using

"ALL", "CDROM", "REMOVABLE", "FIXED", "NETWORK", "RAMDISK", or "UNKNOWN"

eg. DriveGetDrive( "REMOVABLE" ) will only search the removeable drives
