This doesn't rely on the API but you could try writing a file to the disk and then read it back. If you cannot read the file or it differs then you could probably assume that the disk is not formatted...

How about

$var = DriveStatus( "a:\" )
MsgBox(4096,"Status",$var)

Straight from the help file.
