Detect which drive is a Zip drive programatically

P: n/a
Does anyone know of a way to detect which drive is a Zip drive (I guess in
the same way that the various system variables can be queried) ?>Thanks

AFAIK all you can determine is if it is a removable drive. There are API calls for
this. http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=45

It may be possible that the ZIP drivers have some API call you can make to see if
they are ZIP drives. But you'd have to check IOMega's website.

It's probably in the registry somewhere - no idea where, tho'.

Good point. Searching on Zip could find it.
