I am writing an application in Qt 4.6/4.7 where in I need to copy some files from the USB drive the moment it is connected to the system. The application while it is running, should be able to detect that a pen drive is inserted and without the user intervention, should look into the usb drive for specific file and copy it to the local drive. This should happen every time a new pen drive is inserted. is there any simple method which i can use? Pls suggest.

Thanks in advance Mahesh
