I have about 18 drives mapped in explorer atm, like most people I imagine, and 8 of them are usually empty (floppy drives, 6 mapped for memory card types i don't use, 4 for virtual cd drives which are usually empty etc etc).
Hunting for the right drive letter for the memory card i've just put in is a total chore as it's a process of trial and error made a lot more difficult by the box that pops up "Please insert a disk into drive L:" etc. and you've got to click this box away as it's app-modal and steals focus, both of which are, IMO, UI no-nos
Is there any way to get rid of this? Ideally make the icon obvious that the drive's empty or something.... but alternatively just when you select an empty drive it shows something in the file-list-pane indicating there's no filesystem.. not just no files. Like a greyed out pane instead of a blank white one? IYKWIM!111 Maybe a big red SVG exclamation mark
This would rock.
