    No disk in drive (xp sp2)

    My computer boots up to the hard drive as directed in the systems setup. After the boot, an error message comes up "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into the drive." A drive letter is not sepecified but a light goes on in the floppy just before this error. It does not matter whether I choose Retry, Cancel. The error message disappears, and all works fine. If I put any disk into the floppy before booting, there is no error message. Anyone have any ideas re: this strange behavior?

    This sounds akin to the problem with an unwanted folder opening at startup - see if the suggestions in the thread beginning with <post#=443,546>post 443,546</post: > help.

    I also have a recollection of an entry in your recent Documents list, last saved to the A-drive, causing similar problems - I'll see if I can locate that thread...

    well, I did a simple thing: I was asked for a disk in the drive, so I put a blank disk into the drive. That fixed the problem!!!!
