You simply need two completely different procedures to do this under Dos 
and Win32. Under Win32, you don't communicate anymore with the OS using 
interrupts (so calling int 21h will probably just crash a win32 program). 
You already have the Dos version, the windows versio probably needs some 
function from the windows unit to get the information about a drive. 
Which one you need can probably be found on msdn.microsoft.com
