Your technique didn't work, I tried it with two files
of type TIF ( not GeoTiff )

and your code didn't return that the file format isn't

here is the code snap:
   GDALDriverH hInputDriver;
   const char *szShortDriverName;
   hInputDriver = GDALGetDatasetDriver( hDataset );
   szShortDriverName = GDALGetDriverShortName(
hInputDriver );
   if ( 0 != strcmp(szShortDriverName,"GTiff") )
      printf("\nThis is not a GeoTiff file format\n");
      return 1;
