Description

DriveReady 1.3 displays a list of drives along with their disk-in status and types. Disk-in status is not automatically checked for drives A, B and network drives to avoid a distracting noise or network traffic. Press the "Check for Drives" button to query all drives whose type has been determined. The problem this program solves is detecting when a newly plugged-in USB drive is ready for use. Sometimes this occurs right away. On other occasions, there is a frustrating delay. With this program, you won't wonder if something is wrong. You will just wait until DriveReady signals that the new drive is ready. With "Silent mode" checked, this program won't distract you or other people with beeping when a new drive is ready. It requires Windows 98 or Windows NT 4.0 with I.E. 3.0 or higher. (Trial period: 15 days-of-use. Initial Fee: $4.99. Upgrade Fee: $0. Released on 6-April-2014.)

ZIP File with Install Program

Install package: DriveReady1.3.zip (447 KB)
Right click on this link, select "Save Target As," select a location and click Save. Then unzip this file and run DriveReadyInstaller1.3.exe to install this program. See here for more information.

As part of the preparation process, I upload DriveReady.exe and the installation program to be scanned by approximately 50 anti-virus programs. Occasionally, there are false positives for the installation program. That means that it doesn't contain any viruses but is reported as having at least one of them. In those cases, I contact the relevant anti-virus companies, when possible, and ask them to fix their products. If your anti-virus program reports a virus for either of these programs, contact me or the maker of your anti-virus program to resolve the problem.

Current scan results: DriveReady.exe: 0/51, DriveReadyInstaller1.3.exe: 1/51

Bkav the installation program.

Registering/Buying DriveReady

First Step

From DriveReady's System Menu (click on the icon at the left of its title bar or press Alt-spacebar when this program's window is active), select Register DriveReady. The Register DriveReady window that will appear will contain DriveReady's registration code.

Option 1: Credit Card or PayPal Payment

Paste this code into the text field below and then press the Buy Now button. A PayPal page will open where you can pay by credit card or through your PayPal account. After you do so and I receive notice of your payment and this code, I will send you a thank-you e-mail with the corresponding activation code. (If I receive notice of your payment without this registration code, I will e-mail you for it.) You can register multiple copies of DriveReady with the form below — just enter the registration codes separated by spaces, press the Buy Now button, edit the quantity on the PayPal page to match the number of registration codes and click on the Update link before paying through PayPal.

Option 2: Check Payment

Send me e-mail with the subject being "DriveReady 1.3 registration" that contains your registration code. (The rest of the body of this e-mail may be blank or say something like "I would like to register DriveReady 1.3.") My reply will include my current postal address. Then send me a check for $4.99 made out to "David Wincelberg." Please include "DR 1.3" and your e-mail address on the memo line of your payment. After I receive it, I will send you a thank-you e-mail with the corresponding activation code. Note that if the amount of your payment is substantially more than that of a single registration fee, I may wait for your check to clear.

Last Step

Enter this activation code into the corresponding field of the Register DriveReady window and press the OK button to register your copy of this program.
