How To

How do I check to see if drive (A:, D:, etc) is ready before moving along? by cghoga
Posted: 11 Feb 04

Sometimes it is useful when writing to a floppy or CD to verify that the media is inserted before moving along.
Otherwise, Access will give a nasty looking message.

To verify that a floppy has been inserted into the A: drive use the following code:

Dim fs, d

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set d = fs.GetDrive("A:")
If d.IsReady Then
     'Begin code execution here.
     MsgBox "A: drive is empty. Please insert disk."
End If

To verify that the CD drive is ready simply replace A: in the above code with the corresponding drive letter (most cases D:).

Hope this is a help to someone.
