Hi,

please, how is it possible find out in Windows, which hard-disk is 
„\Device\Harddisk3\DR5“?
When I look into device-manager, hard-disks are marked as „Disk0, Disk1 ...“.

TIA & Regards

              Zdeno

i have a App to eject USB Drive but like you i have to identify Drive 
before.

"\Device\HarddiskVolume5" is a szDosDeviceName but you need DeviceIdString 
like "USB\VID_058F&PID_6387\BABD3FF5" to identify Hardware

my 1st try was to translate a C Code with many API function but it was not 
stable.
now i found a other Way so before i go on i must know what you want to do

and there is more fixed disks(with more partitions) and I don’t know,
