Update: FloatLED by Stone Oakvalley Studios.

Fixing the fixes.

Notice: Figured out that Flash Media Acitivty is only available for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Seems that M$ changed some code indeed.

Improved: Reworked all the code involving floppy drive detection mixed with Flash Media's. All flash disks should appear as intended now on Vista and above.

Fixed: Minor problem with tooltip not working properly if the drive scanned did not have any label (volumename) defined.

Notice: Discovered that adding a USB floppy device to the system will seriously confuze FloatLED and report it back as a regular Flash Drive and even confuze the available drive list. There is no good way to detect USB floppy as its return values interfere with those of regular Flash Based Media. It can all be traced back to Microsoft and their way of handling a SPINNING media and placing it under REMOVEABLE drive together with NON-SPINNING REMOVABLE DRIVE. Users with USB Floppies just have to live with it, a different solution is to scan hardware registry and deeper, but it just complicates the operation of FloatLED.
