Check all removables for a file then do action - Error :(

9 posts in this topic

Hey,

I got a little problem while making a little tool. It works this way: You plug in a removable drive (USB) and as soon as it get's plugged in it checks

for a file called "password.dat", if it exists it reads the file and if my chosen password "U28e+dje33eefF" matches, i gives a massagebox/executes a function.

Now i wrote this: 

#include <File.au3>

While 1
drives ()
check ()
sleep(500)
WEnd




func check ()
$file = "database.dat"
FileOpen($file, 0)
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
If $line = "U28e+dje33eefF" Then
MsgBox (0,"","ITS IT")
Else
sleep(500)
EndIf
Next
FileClose($file)
EndFunc

func drives ()
$hFO = FileOpen("database.dat", 2)
FileWrite($hFO, "")
FileClose($hFO)
Local $aArray = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
If @error Then
   
Else
    For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
      FileWrite("database.dat", ($aArray[$i]) & "\password.dat"& @CRLF)      
    Next
 EndIf
 EndFunc

Now exactly what my program should currently do: Always check for all current removables and then check if the file exists, if not it does nothing, if it

exists it reads the file for the password. If the password matches, it should execute a message box saying "ITS IT".

I know there is an error: Where the password gets checked, it checks the database.dat file instead of the password.dat file. When changing it to this:

#include <File.au3>

While 1
drives ()
check ()
sleep(500)
WEnd




func check ()
$file = "database.dat"
FileOpen($file, 0)
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
    $password = FileReadLine($line,1)
If $password = "U28e+dje33eefF" Then
MsgBox (0,"","ITS IT")
Else
sleep(500)
EndIf
Next
FileClose($file)
EndFunc

func drives ()
$hFO = FileOpen("database.dat", 2)
FileWrite($hFO, "")
FileClose($hFO)
Local $aArray = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
If @error Then
   
Else
    For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
      FileWrite("database.dat", ($aArray[$i]) & "\password.dat"& @CRLF)      
    Next
 EndIf
 EndFunc

It gives me another error, that there is no drive :(

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this... I read so many tutorials, however i couldn't find a solution.

Thanks in advance & best regards

Try this, it gets rid of the database.dat file and passes an array around instead that holds the drives found and the password file.

Global $Return, $Return2
While 1
    $Return = drives()
    If UBound($Return) Then
        $Return2 = check($Return)
        If $Return2 Then
            ConsoleWrite('! Password found on drive: ' & StringLeft($Return[$Return2], 2) & @CRLF)
            ;do something here
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Sleep(500)
WEnd
Func check($aArray)
    For $I = 1 To $aArray[0]
        $password = FileReadLine($aArray[$I], 1)
        If $password = "U28e+dje33eefF" Then
            MsgBox(0, "", "ITS IT")
            Return $I
        Else
            Sleep(500)
        EndIf
    Next
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>check

Func drives()
    Local $aArray = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
    Local $TempArray[1], $Error = 0
    If @error Then
        $TempArray = 1
        $Error = @error
    Else
        ReDim $TempArray[$aArray[0] + 1]
        $TempArray[0] = $aArray[0]
        For $I = 1 To $aArray[0]
            $TempArray[$I] = $aArray[$I] & "\password.dat"
        Next
    EndIf
    Return SetError($Error, 0, $TempArray)
EndFunc   ;==>drives

Thanks! Unfortunatly im still getting this error, but it's nice without the database which i was

trying to use as a work around. Here is a screenshot of the error:

Translation: No medium/data storage

There is no medium in the drive. Please insert a medium into the drive DeviceHarddisk3DR3.

I really don't know if this has something to do with AutoIT or with Windows 7 x64.

Thanks in advance & best regards

Do you have a memory card reader on the computer? Sounds to me that it's finding a card reader and trying to read a file off it causes the error. Try using DriveGetFileSystem to see if the function returns 1, which means there's nothing in the drive, or if it returns a valid file system type.

Thank you so much! This was the solution to my problem! Finally got it... i disabled the card reader since im not

using it that much. Is there a way to ignore the card reader? With the DriveGetFileSystem command? I tried

it with the DriveGetFileSystem command and it returned three times "NTFS" for all three drives.

How can i "implent" it into the script?

Thanks in advance.

If Not DriveGetFileSystem("<insert drive letter here>\") = "1" Then
     ; attempt to find the file here
Endif

cytonwidee,

I use DriveStatus to bypass my card reader drives. Om my machine they only return "READY" if they have a card inserted - otherwise I just skip that drive letter from the DriveGetDrive("ALL") return. :)

Thank you both for you solutions! In my case i found DriveStatus to be working really good.

I made this to test if it is a drive: (This just shows how to find out if it is a card reader and

gives people an idea on how to implent it)

$drive = InputBox("CR-Test","Please enter the drive letter to test if it is a card reader.")
$status = DriveStatus($drive & ":\")

if $status = "INVALID" Then
MsgBox(0,"Info","It is a card reader.")
Elseif $status = "NOTREADY" Then
MsgBox(0,"Info","It is a card reader.")
else 
MsgBox(0,"Info","It is not a card reader.")
EndIf 

And as a function to check all drives:

Local $aArray = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
If @error Then
   
Else
    For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
      
      $status = DriveStatus("" & $aArray[$i])
          
if $status = "INVALID" Then
MsgBox(0,"Info",$aArray[$i] & " is a card reader.")
Elseif $status = "NOTREADY" Then
MsgBox(0,"Info",$aArray[$i] & " is a card reader.")
else 
MsgBox(0,"Info",$aArray[$i] & " is not a card reader.")
EndIf
    Next
 EndIf

Always works =) Thank you so much, i'll post the final code in the next hour for people who want to this too.

Best regards...

Okay guys, if anyone needs this, i again modified it so its easier to understand:

#include <File.au3>
 
While 1
check ()
sleep(500)
WEnd
 
 
 
func check ()
Local $aArray = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
If @error Then
    ; An error occurred when retrieving the drives.
    MsgBox(4096, "DriveGetDrive", "It appears an error occurred.")
Else
    For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
        ;check if drives are OK
        $status = DriveStatus("" & $aArray[$i])
          
if $status = "INVALID" Then
;No Action because its not a valid drive.
Elseif $status = "NOTREADY" Then
;No Action because its not ready
else 
$password = FileReadLine(($aArray[$i]) & "/password.dat");Action because drive is OK   
If $password = "U28e+dje33eefF" Then
      ;do something here *start*
      MsgBox(0,"","BAMM")
      ;do something here *end*
Else
EndIf
EndIf
     
Next
EndIf
EndFunc

Have fun with it, can be closed.
