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?

Any thoughts?
all manner of thoughts. some might even be relevant to the matter at hand ...
okay, back in the days of new itunes and 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 (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 or 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 or, we might try an upgrade to (working on the principle that we haven't seen this often if at all since came out, and is more stable and/or more readily available than or
keep us posted.

  • 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 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

    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: 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:
    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.

    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.

  • When clicking a link normally - a new tab would open, but in this version a new window opens and there are 2 blue bars - the bar at the top of the browser and on the left hand side is a orange firefox button - Next time i start firefox it crashes!!!

    This window looks weird: there are 2 blue bars(the upper blue bar - normally there is 1, with the current page name and - Mozilla Firefox written in white inside of the bar) plus in the 2nd bar there is an orange firefox button, on the left hand side.
    I have already asked this question and was adviced to start in safe mode - this did not help either.
    Please help me quickliy, it is really annoying.

  • Suddenly my nano (6th gen) can't be detected and windows 8.1 says there is a problem with the drive, but it can't be fixed

    I've had this for sometime and this laptop for about 1 year. Never saw this before, but haven't tryed to line up with ITunes for a while. I get a notice from windows that there is a problem with the drive and it asks it i want to fix it. Nothing happens if i try, so I have not persued that avenue. ITunes says a IPod is detected but the identification cannot be verified. Whats up with that?

  • 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
    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.

    Hey Texasdee07,
    I found the following information that should resolve the issue:

    Warning: Be sure to back up your data before restoring an iPod. The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted.

    Adobe Reader is free. It always has been.
    You have obviously downloaded and installed Acrobat (30 day trial version) and the trial period has expired.
    You need to uninstall Acrobat (using the Control Panel and Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features [Vista/7])
    Then run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
    to completely remove the Acrobat installer files.
    Then download Reader 9, install it, and go about reading PDFs for free.
    EDIT: Please, please please.... do NOT post a phone number in the forums.
    You're inviting trouble if you do.

  • There's a problem with the drive scan drive message appears when plugging in ipod into a new windows 8 computer

  • When a secondary window should open there is no information in the window. Such as viewing checks from a bank account.

    Any time a secondary window should open there is no information showing. For example, when needing to view an electronic version of a check from a bank site when I click on the check another window opens but it is totally blank. And it isn't just one happens on two different bank accounts. It also happens on when I try to load a cache to my GPS and a seperate window needs to open. To do any of these things I must go to IE....which I really hate to do.
    == This happened ==
    Not sure how often
    == don't remember....has been this way forever it seems

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • [CS2 on Windows XP]: Is there a way to modify the JPG compression in an SVG?

    I have got an EPS file.It contains some text, some paths, and a rastered image.
    Saved as a JPG with moderate compression it is 125KB in size. For an EPUB I want to insert is as an SVG. But when I save it as an SVG (text being converted to paths) it is over 600 KB and thus exeeding the 300k limit that exists for files within an EPUB container.
    Is there a way to have the JPG stream in the SVG more compressed? The W3C spec of the SVG format doesn't say anything about a fixed compression level, so I guess the compression can be varied. But Illustrator CS2 doesn't seem to have any appropriate setting.

  • DVD ROM not working with Windows 8.1...I need the driver please.

    My CD/DVD/BluRay Drive is not working since I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8.1.  I really need the driver as soon as possible.  I really need the DVD/CD Drive to work.  I spent so much money getting this laptop to where it needs to be.  I bought new hard drives and everything.  Please tell me that you are going to provide a driver for Windows 8.1.

    Hi @biokimyaci
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums! I see that you are looking for a driver for your CD/DVD or optical drive. There are no specific drivers for the optical drive they are generic Windows drivers that come as part of the operating system. Go to your Device Manager and under DVD/CD-Rom drives right click what you have there and select Uninstall. They restart your computer and Windows will automatically install the driver. What is the product number for your notebook?
    Please click “Accept as Solution ” if you feel my post solved your issue.

  • "there was an error contacting the server. please check your network connection and try again."

    On my Ipad Revel is giving me the following error:
    "there was an error contacting the server.  please check your network connection and try again."
    The Ipad is connectd to the internet and it's the only app not working.  This has been going on for 6+ months.

    I'm having the same problem on an iPhone and an iPad, while another iPhone and iPad are working perfectly, all on the same account. The Mac app is also working fine. I've reinstalled the apps on the iDevices and checked to make sure the region is set (it is) and all apps are up to date. What seems to happen is the app syncs perfectly, the blue progress bar shows the sync is complete, but the app continues to try to snyc, periodically flashing the connection error. If I quit or force quit the app or even force a restart of iOS 7.04, then open Revel, it immediately begins to sync, updates with no problem, but the sync icon continues to spin until I quit. Each time I activate the iDevice, I'm greeted by a message from Revel that the sync was interrupted. I open the app and it's back to the endless syncing and error messages.
    Update: The problem continues. Message was edited by: lumierefl
