is there a way to detect this event :(i.e: pen drive introducing) ? both win 2000 and xp



$var = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")

While 1
        Case Not $var[0] = DriveGetDrive("REMOVABLE")
            MsgBox(0, "Drive", "A removeable drive was inserted.")
        Case Else

I played a bit with GUIRegisterMsg and some message I can't remember the name of at the moment...maybe WM_DEVICECHANGE.

It worked for me, but I'm pretty certain it also fires on other events as well, so try googling it a bit and I'm sure you'll find something

interesting concerning pen-drives.
