Batch File Help (Possilbe Variable?)

I have a batch file that updates my flash drive , Problem is that on different computers my Flash drive shows up as different Drive letters

So i have 50 lines of code that has to be hard coded , is there a way i can do something like this

IF EXIST D:\start.dat (

%variable% = D:

)

IF EXIST E:\start.dat (

%variable%= E:

)

copy C:\updates "%variable%\path\to\updates\"

I just hate to have to write the code over and over 7-9 times to cover the possibilities of my flash drive volume letter and then use a gigantic IF statement

FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\start.dat SET Tdrive=%%i:
copy c:\updates "%tdrive%\path\to\updates

Thanks for that , Any Clue why now after i am using a variable the copy function keeps telling me that Access Is Denied?

FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\start.bat SET Tdrive=%%i:

the only thing I can think of is if the files already in the target folder are set to ready only. Then you will get an Access Denied Error when trying to copy over them.

Or if you thumbdrive is set to read only.
