No Disc In The Drive. Please Insert A Disc
Windows XP Home Edition (sp 2) HP Pavillion After I start the computer, I get this message---Red circle with a white x message states There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a disc into drive. This started this morning. Didn't have it last night when I shut it down. Have no idea why this all of a sudden started. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried clicking on cancel

comes right back. Went into Task Manager and clicked End Task.

CD Drive Windows Display Previously Insert Disc Info
Running XP Pro with 1 DVD ROM and 1 CDR drive. Whenever I remove media from a drive and replace with a new disc, windows only displays the old data and doesn't recognize the new disc. Especially frustrating during a multi disc install. Sometimes it will refresh if I eject the disc through a menu vs. drive button. Other times this doesn't work. This happens with both drives, so it doesn't seem to be hardware issue.

Insert Disk - CD-Rom E Drive Appears
Compaq desktop, AMD 3200, DVD drive (D) and Asus CD Rom (E) I'm sure I've read about this before but for the life of me, I can't find anything now that fits. My CD-Rom (E) drive appears in "MY Computer" but when I try to use it I get the message to "insert a disk". I've tried data disks, picture disks, and music disks but the drive still thinks it's empty

CD Rom Drives Error Please Insert A Disk Into Drive
When I want to move something to, or download anything to My CD drives I cannot get past the message "please insert a disk into drive (which ever)". Neither drive will recognize that there is a empty disk in the drive. I've tried different media and various makes of CD's and DVD.'s. I can burn a disk in the Cd/DVD
drive using "Nero". And both drives will open if there is data, music, or pictures on the disk in either drive, but I cannot open a blank empty disk unless it is in conjunction with something I'm doing with Nero.
There are no yelow symbols in device manager. And I have uninstalled both IDE channels that the optical drive is on and on reboot win 2000 reinstalled them automatically. I have updated the firm ware for each drive. Replaced the USB cable for the external drive and before I reloaded the updated firm ware I uninstalled both drives and reinstalled with the updated firmware. My three malware/spyware
programs have been run as has both of my virus programs.

Auto Shutdown When Insert A USB Thumb Drive Into A USB Port?
everytime I insert a USB thumb drive into one of the two USB ports, the computer automatically shuts down.I have tried inserting another USB device into the port, and it works.Therefore I was leaning towards the driver being the problem. In device manager,it says that the device is working properly.The USB thumb drive came with a CD-ROM, but it only has the drivers for Windows 98 on it, as they are not needed for XP.I have since cleaned and re-formatted the computer, taking every back to its orginal state, as it came out of the box.

Please inset a disk into drive A:" If I select 'Cancel' or simply hit the (x) at the top left to close the dialog box, the program starts normally.

No Disc In Drive E
I was trying to run a computer game off a CD and I got the error "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive E:." The E drive is my CD RW. I had run this program before without a problem. I took the disk out and put it back in- no luck. I gave up.Now I try to run a program that has been installed on my harddrive (Powerpoint), and I get the same error. I never needed to have a disk in the E drive to use that program before. I use Windows XP. Not sure where to look to troubleshoot this one.

Having Downloaded Spy Bot / No Disc In The Drive
I have just finished a major rescue operation after my motherboard failed. I'm using Windows XP Home. Everything appears to be OK - except, having downloaded Spybot, when I try to run it, I get this message "There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a disc into drive DeviceHarddisk 1DR2". It doesn't matter which of the buttons I then click, nothing happens, and the only way I can get rid of it is to reboot the system. I had the same problem last May, although the context was different. I seem to remember that the only way I could fix the problem was to rename the virtual drive "c:" as "b:". Question - would that work? If so, how do you rename virtual drives, my memory isn't what it was, and I foolishly didn't write the process down.

DVD-RW Drive Won't Detect A DVD-RW Disc
Before I start, I should tell you all that I am re-posting this with all of the original correspondence at the end.I've done as described, put both drives back into their proper place on the tape and into the proper order (DVD-RW - master, DVD-ROM - slave). On a hunch, I decided to pop in a DVD-R disc, and this was detected just fine. I also put in a DVD-RW disc, but it was not detected. Seeing as how I have data I want to append to an old DVD-RW disc, is there anything left to do?

Install On SATA Drive - Does Not On The Disc
I have recently bought a new computer that came with windows vista as you may have guessed the experience mostly has not been a good one, with lots of compatibility issues. I want to dual boot Vista with XP but the problem is I have heard windows XP does not have the SATA drivers on the disc. I understand that you just need to insert a floppy and push F6 I think but the problem is I don't have a floppy drive! Is there anyway I can slipstream the drivers into the install or something?

No Disc Drive / Memory Card Keeps Rebooting
Further to my message of 03/03/10 I have a Samsung NC10 Netbook, it keeps returning to the reboot options black screen but whatever option I choose, it boots up, flashes Windows XP, flashes blue screen, ends up back on black options screen. There's no chance of getting on the internet to download anything, no icons no task bar. I know that this will cost us �70 to take to PCWorld and we're a bit low paid. How can I transfer the files to another PC?

Primary Hard Disc Drive 1 Not Found - Unknown Device
I created a mess (but I'm learning more each day), and after a week got it going at least, but on boot got messagae "primary hard disc drive 1 not found" which required clicking F1 to continue. I ended up reinstalling XP, got everything up and running, but still have the HD message at each boot. I've passed all of the diagnostics in Set-Up, and found nothing on any of the troubleshooting sites that helped. Set-up says: Primary Drive 0 - Hard Drive; Primary Drive 1 - Unknown Device; Secondary Drives 0 adn 1 are both CD-ROM Readers. Everything works just fine, but I'd like to figure the drive problem. I had to create a partition for the reinstall - had no choice.
