You can use GetDriveType(). Here's some info on it from the MSDN Library.
The GetDriveType function determines whether a disk drive is a removable,
fixed, CD-ROM, RAM disk, or network drive.
LPCTSTR lpRootPathName // address of root path
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the root directory of the
disk to return information about. If lpRootPathName is NULL, the function
uses the root of the current directory.
The return value specifies the type of drive. It can be one of the following
0 The drive type cannot be determined.
1 The root directory does not exist.
DRIVE_REMOVABLE The drive can be removed from the drive.
DRIVE_FIXED The disk cannot be removed from the drive.
DRIVE_REMOTE The drive is a remote (network) drive.
DRIVE_CDROM The drive is a CD-ROM drive.
DRIVE_RAMDISK The drive is a RAM disk.
