Looks like DriveGetSerial() is more particular about having *only* the drive letter passed to it (as opposed to DriveGetType(), which permits passing a full path). Give this a shot - worked for me on a quick test:

$rem = DriveGetType(@ScriptDir)
If $rem = "Removable"  Then
    $var = DriveGetSerial(StringLeft(@ScriptDir, 3))
    MsgBox(4096, "Serial Number: ", $var)
Else
    Exit
EndIf

Edit: grammar
