Returns True if the specified drive is ready; False if it is not.

The object is always a Drive object.

For removable-media drives and CD-ROM drives, IsReady returns True only when the appropriate media is inserted and ready for access.

The following code illustrates the use of the IsReady property:

Sub ShowDriveInfo(drvpath)
    Dim fs, d, s, t
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set d = fs.GetDrive(drvpath)
    Select Case d.DriveType
        Case 0: t = "Unknown"
        Case 1: t = "Removable"
        Case 2: t = "Fixed"
        Case 3: t = "Network"
        Case 4: t = "CD-ROM"
        Case 5: t = "RAM Disk"
    End Select
    s = "Drive " & d.DriveLetter & ": - " & t
    If d.IsReady Then 
        s = s & vbCrLf & "Drive is Ready."
        s = s & vbCrLf & "Drive is not Ready."
    End If
    MsgBox s
End Sub
