    Hello,
    how can we check whether there is floppy present in the floppy drive?
    Using Win32 APIs?
    I tried using DeviceIoControl() function, but could not guess which IOCTL_XXX constant would help me?

    Or is there another way? plz help.

    I am not sure that will help you to detect the media but I think you should give a read file and if there is an error catch it to judge its not present.
