get drive type

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have an mp3 player that when plugged in to a "Windows" computer gets identified as "Other" of type "Portable Media Player", instead of "removable disk", and doesn't get assigned a drive letter. Is there any way for autoit to recognize this device? The built in function 'DriveGetDrive( "all" )' does not detect it. Thanks.

That device is not presenting itself as a removable drive to the host, so it's fairly consistent that Windows can't access it as a drive.

You might find code to deal with USB at low level from AutoIt, but be prepared to a non trivial task.

Some digital cameras do so as well, but most smart devices have a software or hardware switch to decide how they behave (drive or media stuff).

I'll start digging around in the help file, while I'm doing it anyone have any starting points for low level usb access?

Try the forum search as I seem to recall having seen something in this domain, possibly in the example scripts forum.

Best of luck!
