USB Drive Monitor Plugin
This Plugin is very simple in use and in its function, all it does is, monitors
the system for usb drives, and informs the user if a drive is detected or
the Plugin has 2 events, and some labels to display info about the last drive
inserted, some buttons to show all drives available, and safely eject them.
"usbmon_eject" ;safely ejects a usb drive. i.e. "usbmon_eject;F:\"
'usbmon_list" ;list all usb drives on a CL, "CLText" holds,
drives letter(F:\), "CLDesc" drives full info.
"usbmon_driveinfo" ;displays all the info from usb drive.
"usbmon_letter" ;displays drive's letter, "F"
"usbmon_size" ;total drives size.
"usbmon_free" ;drives free space.
"usbmon_state" ;last event.
"usbmon_type" ;type of usb drive.
"usbmon_maker" ;drives maker.
"usbmon_connected" ;on when at least one usb drive is detected.
"USBMONLETTER" ;holds drives letter, updated on any event, "F:\"
"*USBMON_ONARRIVAL" ;event fires when a usb drive is inserted and ready.
"*USBMON_ONREMOVED" ;event fires when a drive is removed.
There is no test skin for this , but a simple popup will do the trick , or a full screen with a CL
list in it for the display of Drives....
Plugin found in the usual place
does this monitor only usb flash drives or ALL usb devices. I've always thought of creating a plugin that lists all devices so i can be warned if a device disappears or bugs out. Its hard maintaining 24 usb devices when they're all tucked away and hidden somewhere lol
Labels and buttons works fine. Exception: indicator "usbmon_connected" doesn't show anything (allways false) in Windows 7...
No function in win XP. I dont't get any results with differents USB-Sticks. As I said: works under win 7 (excep. indicator).
i have no issue under xp it see's all 10 of my sticks , make sure the dll is reg'ed via the rr plugin manager or debug
The RR plugin manager says about usb mon: all is good...
The register.cmd shows some (warning) messages in Win 7 and Win XP, but the reg was successful.
Do I need a special version of .NET?
10 USB-Sticks? Are you a stick gatherer?
make sure you have .net 3.5 ,, i get sticks free lol biggest is 32 gig
yes... its a misuse of the codebase parameter for the .net assembly
it should be removed
btw, who is releasing plugins without installers, no user should be messing with registering dlls :)

In fact I prefer it when plugins come without installers. (which kind of goes against me now using installers hmmmm?)
