    Something About A:/ Drive

    Has anyone else experienced this 'phenomena'?

    For no apparent reason other than to be irritating, my A: drive will do that *BUDD-DDAA-DAAA-DAAA-DAAA-DAAB* Thing out of nowhere, (as if I tried to open a file while no disk is in the drive...) Does anyone have any idea how to kill this behavior? I've been running Filemon, but havn't been able to locate the culprit.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Drk.

    It sounds like a Anti Virus program performing a preset drive check and you might look at your settings.

    A: reference in recently used file list. Check registry for references to A:

    Or one of the other possibilities already noted.

    Hi Drk:

    Fred Langa had a couple of articles on this. Start with <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.langa.com/newsletters/2001/2001-01-25.htm#9>puka-puka</A> & there are links to other articles. I know puka-puka is different than BUDD-DDAA-DAAA-DAAA-DAAA-DAAB[img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img].

    Hope this helps.
