Not having VS on here I cannot check, but the FileSystemWatcher class might help you with this.

Failing that, you could use the hackier way and override your form's WndProc and check for the WM_DEVICECHANGE message, fired whenever a device is added/removed.

The FileSystemWatcher does not raise events for CDs and DVDs, because time stamps and properties cannot change.



I'm hoping to try and do it in a more C# way than the more c++ way of using the WM_DEVICECHANGE message, but thanks for the suggestion.
