This is where we can share code to do things with our Pacemakers

To find the Pacemaker drive you need to iterate through all your drives looking for a removable drive, that is "ready", and has a volume label which matches your Pacemaker. I found that my Pacemaker volume was "Pacemaker" whereas DJ Pip found his was "PACEMAKER". It could be something to do with the different versions of Windows we have (Vista 32-bit for me, Windows 7 64-bit for Pip). Therefore you should uppercase the volume of any drive you are testing, and compare it to "PACEMAKER".
Here is the code in vb .Net
Code: Select all
Private DeviceVolumeLabel As String = "PACEMAKER"
Public Function FindPacemakerDrive() As Boolean
PacemakerDrive = ""
PacemakerPresent = False
For Each drive As DriveInfo In DriveInfo.GetDrives()
If drive.DriveType = DriveType.Removable AndAlso drive.IsReady Then
If drive.VolumeLabel.ToUpper = DeviceVolumeLabel Then
PacemakerDrive = drive.Name
PacemakerPresent = True
Never experiment with drugs.... you might waste them
