my VB6 program has to open some files on a USB mass storage device, no
problem so far. To find the correct drive letter, it just scans D: thru
Z: for the property "removable" and for the files wanted.
Now a new generation of USB devices comes to use, and those don't show
up with any drive letter at all. Within Windows Explorer, they appear
with their name instead of drive letter, with a folder below the name
called "internal storage" - looking like kind of portable media player.
How can I open a file on those devices from within VB6?
I got a hint to open Windows Hardware manager and locate the driver and
switch it over to something like "mass storage". Now it has its drive
letter, but I cannot force my customers to do the same.
