Hello Autoit-Freaks

or removed from a system.

please without devcon.exe solution. maybe with a dll-call.

@all

You can play around with this.

$strComputer = "."
 $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

 $colEvents = $objWMIService.ExecNotificationQuery _
    ("Select * From __InstanceOperationEvent Within 10 Where " _
        & "TargetInstance isa 'Win32_LogicalDisk'") ;and " _ 
          ; & "TargetInstance.DriveType = 2" )


While 1
     $objEvent = $colEvents.NextEvent
    If $objEvent.TargetInstance.DriveType = 2 Then 
        Select 
            Case $objEvent.Path_.Class()="__InstanceCreationEvent"
                Consolewrite("Drive " & $objEvent.TargetInstance.DeviceId & "has been added." & @CR)
            Case $objEvent.Path_.Class()="__InstanceDeletionEvent"
                Consolewrite("Drive " & $objEvent.TargetInstance.DeviceId & "has been removed."& @CR)
        EndSelect
    EndIf
WEnd
