Message: Windows - No Disk there is no disk in the drive . Please insert ..

This message has started appearing every time I load up itunes, and it freezes my access to itunes, forcing me to abort the job. The message cannot be cancelled, and it does not respond to cancel, try again or continue prompts. I've managed to by pass it by entering itunes via Windows' Accessories->Program compatibility wizard-> choose program itunes, but this is obviously a silly way to achieve something that worked properly before.
I recently upgraded to version 7.0.2
Is this condition unique to me? I suspect not. Any way of clearing up the problem rather that botching one's way to a by-pass of it?
Cheers!

Well, you're going to think I'm silly, but when this was happening to me, I was using the wrong media in the drive. I was attempting to use DVDs in a CD only drive. shrugs

  • There is no disk in the drive. please insert a disk into drive

    i downloaded new itune upgrade. now i cant use it because this windows message appears(there is no disk in the drive. please insert a disk into drive) & i cant cancel, try again or continue it.as this message keeps appearing itune is trying to anayize each song (12000 songs)but cant because the windows no disk windows keeps popping up.

    I haven't seen this myself but in another forum query someone suggested that one possible cause of this is dead tracks.
    If so you can get sofware that can remove dead tracks.
    iTSync is one such program which others have recommned although I have no experience of it myself.

  • There is no disk in the drive--please insert a disk into drive F & more

    Hey,
    I've been having a problem with my ipod shuffle (2nd gen) for the past couple of weeks. Everything is okay until I try to eject the ipod. I click the eject button and the following errors pop up: "There is no disk in the drive--please insert a disk into drive F." and this next error pops up immediately after the disk F error. "The ipod can not be ejected because it contains files that are in use by another application."
    I've been browsing around on this forum and I came across a person that had the exact same problem I had. That thread is located here: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=12582148&#12582148 Take note of the person replying to the person asking about the problem saying it could be a problem with an anti-virus program. The asker said they had McAfee. I also have McAfee. And since the person answering didn't know too much about McAfee and suggested the asker take it up with McAfee, I decided to go straight to the McAfee forum to ask about the problem. I asked my question over there and the person answering said it couldn't be a problem with McAfee. It doesn't interfere with legitimate software. I could always click skip once it reached the ipod if I felt like doing that. Or I could turn off the schedule scan to avoid automatic scanning--I already did that. I prefer manual scans. Anyway, the McAfee discussion is located here: https://community.mcafee.com/message/167031#167031
    As for the 5 R's: I have reset the ipod. I've tried putting the dock into another USB port. It's firmly in the dock btw. I updated itunes a couple of days ago to see if that would help the problem and it didn't. I uninstalled itunes last night, restart the machine and reinstalled it and I still got the error. And I haven't tried restore. tbh I really want to avoid that route if at all possible. I've done 4 out of the 5 R's. I'd hate to restore everything and still have the problem come up.
    Can somebody please help me? Normally I wouldn't consider this a huge problem but I don't want it leading to a bigger problem in the long run.
    And for computer information: My system is 100% clean. I have McAfee and Malwarebytes and I use them regularly and it always comes out clean.
    Thank you for any/all replies.

    I had the same problem and after a few hours, I found the fix. iTunes uses a program called "MobileDeviceService". It appears Mcafee blocks this program by default. To resolve this, got to McAfee Firewall Settings, click "Internet Connections for Programs", and find the program called "MobileDeviceService". Edit the settings to change Access Level from "Block" to "Full". Now you will be able to synch to your iphone/ipad/ipod through iTunes.

  • Windows No Disk There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk......

    Help! Just recently this message window has been appearing everytime I open up iTunes:
    Windows No Disk
    There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive.
    iTunes was humming along nicely for over a year with no problems. All of a sudden this message keeps popping up. I can still use iTunes to its full capacity, but this annoying little window is beginning to push my blood pressure up.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem?
    Thanks

    Any thoughts?
    all manner of thoughts. some might even be relevant to the matter at hand ...
    okay, back in the days of new itunes 6.0.0.18 and 6.0.1.3 installs, we used to sometimes get reports of Windows asking for all sorts of disks when people tried to launch itunes after an upgrade. (sometimes it would be like your message, sometimes it would be asking for a specific disk with no apparent connection to itunes.) i never did manage to work out what precisely was going on with it. my best guess was that the installation scripts in the itunes installers (or QT 7.0.3 installers) were sometimes activating other installation routines for other programs. (i've seen your message show up before when i've tried installing other software on my PC from a disk.) whatever it was, it seemed to stop happening to people from itunes 6.0.2.23 (and QT 7.0.4) onwards.
    i was wondering if we had an even weirder version of that going on with your message (only it started happening after an install of a different package). that's why i was checking up on the version number of your itunes before.
    assuming for the moment that you do have an itunes 6.0.0.18 or 6.0.1.3 in there, we might as well try something that could fix the version of the message that you're getting. sometimes if people put a CD (an audio CD is fine) into the disk drive prior to launching their itunes, they wouldn't get that message. sometimes, they wouldn't get that message ever again even if in future launches they didn't have a CD in the drive.
    if no joy with that (and you're currently at 6.0.0.18 or 6.0.1.3), we might try an upgrade to 6.0.4.2 (working on the principle that we haven't seen this often if at all since 6.0.2.23 came out, and 6.0.4.2 is more stable and/or more readily available than 6.0.2.23 or 6.0.3.5).
    keep us posted.
    love, b

  • "itunes.exe - No disk There is no disk in the drive.

    The following message shows up whenever I open itunes:
    "itunes.exe - No disk
    There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\harddisk1\DR2"
    Can anyone tell me what this means, and more importantly how do I make it stop?
    As long as I click on the "continue" button anywhere from 20 to 40 times, itunes will eventually open. Surely, this is not normal and it has only just begun to happen (after almost 7 years of using itunes.
    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    If you really want to roll back to 11.4 uninstall all iTunes/Apple components, restore the pre-upgrade version of the library as described in Empty/corrupt iTunes library after upgrade/crash, then download and install from one of these direct links:
    iTunes 11.4.0.18 for Windows (32-bit) - iTunesSetup.exe (2014-09-09)
    iTunes 11.4.0.18 for Windows (64-bit) - iTunes64Setup.exe (2014-09-09)
    If you have trouble uninstalling or reinstalling see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    Note, if you have devices running iOS 8 you cannot use any version of iTunes before 11.4.

    The optical drive has probably failed. It's a fairly common thing with these slim SuperDrives. Does it read any discs you put into it? You can try resetting the SMC and pram but I'll be surprised if it helps.
    To reset the SMC
    Shut down the computer.
    Unplug the computer's power cord.
    Wait fifteen seconds.
    Attach the computer's power cord.
    Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on
    Resetting PRAM and NVRAM
    Shut down the computer.
    Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    Turn on the computer.
    Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    Release the keys.

    I created a site column at the root of my site and I have publishing turned on.  I selected the Hyperlink with formatting and constraints for publishing.
    I went to my subsite and added the column.  The request was to have "Open in new tab" for their hyperlinks.  I was able to get the column to be added and yesterday we added items without a problem. 
    The problem arose when, today, a user told me that he could not edit the hyperlink.  He has modify / delete permissions on this list.
    He would edit the item, in a custom list, and click on the address "click to add a new hyperlink" and then he would get the error below after succesfully putting in the Selected URL (http://www.xxxxxx.com), Open

    We had the same issue after applying the SP2 & August CU. we open the case with MSFT and get the same resolution as you mentioned.
    I blog about this issue and having the office reference.
    Later MSFT release the Hotfix for this on December 10, 2013 which i am 100% positive should be part of future CUs.
    So if you apply the April CU then you will be fine.

    Hi Shane.  Not much in the way of thoughts - - but fwiw:
    How is the drive attached?
    Can you open large files on the drive with other programs?
    Are you running any drive compression or acceleration programs (some drives arrive with these installed)?
    Can you reformat the drive and try again?
    Hi Kirby,
    I attached the UltraMax Plus with a USB cable. The UltraMax powers the cable so power is not an issue. I can open other files. Also, there is 500GB of files on the drive so I cannot re-format it. Although, I noted I could import the entire Aperture Library. However, I do not want to create a duplicate on my machine because that would be defeating the purpose of the external drive.

  • When I add a new bookmark, and the (star) Page Bookmarked window appears - is there any way to expand the size of that window so that I can see my entire list of folders when adding a new bookmark to an existing folder?

    When I add a new bookmark, and the (star) Page Bookmarked window appears - is there any way to expand the size of that window so that I can see my entire list of folders when adding a new bookmark to an existing folder? The endless scrolling technique is far too tedious when trying to add a new bookmark, because the window is simply too tiny. Is there maybe a plug-in that will let me grab the corner of that window and re-size it? Thanks!

    I suggest you install the "Add Bookmark to Here2" extension, then you can expand the the list but you will not see the bookmark itself in the list if that is what you wanted. At the top you have three major folders you can select one of them and scroll up and down. Below that you have your most recently used folders and you can select one of them instead and scroll up and down. You can see the folder the bookmark is in -- they get added to the bottom
    If you really want to see the bookmark within the folder the same extension allows you to bring the bookmark to the folder from say the bookmarks sidebar that is why it is named as such. I use it but mainly i use the dialog.
    Please continue reading about bookmarks and some related extensions at

    * http://dmcritchie.mvps.org/firefox/kws.htm
    If you are not using tags at all, you can remove a whole lot of confusion by removing them from the dialog via the extension.
