  • Oh Lord, can't you just put your hand on it?  MFC doesn't support anything like this, google WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation).

  • I don't even know if WMI supports this for removable storage. If not, then your only option is to attach a temperature probe and to monitor it via an API that supports said probe.
