Try the following:
For Each dra In diar1

For such a simple thing, use System.IO.Directory instead. I don't know what to explain here; everything is written:[^].

Oh no, sorry, not everything. There is one unpleasant subliminal Microsoft problem about it. Please see:
Directory.Get.Files search pattern problem[^].

First, I learned about it from CodeProject members! Highly appreciate the lesson.
