When there is no disc inserted into the disc drive and the tray is ejected, this batch script will output "The device is not ready." error message. This message is sent to STDERR. Therefore, you can redirect STDERR to NUL so that the message never shows:

C:\>DriveSerialNumber e:
The device is not ready.

C:\>DriveSerialNumber e: 2> NUL
