Summary: gaim.exe - no disk in the drive

Initial Comment:
I have Gaim 1.1.0 for Windows, running on Windows XP,
SP2. When I open the program a box pops up
saying "gaim.exe - No Disk." It reads: "There is no
disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive
\Device\Harddisk4\DR5." There are three buttons below
labeled "Cancel," "Try Again" and "Continue." If I X out
or press Cancel or Continue, Gaim opens normally. If I
press "Try Again" the box reappears. This pop-up does
not prevent me from opening the program, but it
happens every time and is extremely irritating.
I searched the Bugs list and found a reference to others
with this problem, including one tied to version 0.81
marked as a "duplicate of 1001597", but can't find
#1001597 to see what the solution is.

It turns out that the gtk bug is well known - for some reason,
gtk tries to read your I: disk.  If you have one of those
memory stick readers, it will be mapped as 4 different drive
letters under XP - check to see if this is your problem by
going into control panel.  Look at the entry for "Portable
Media Devices".  If you have one of those assigned to I:, that
is the problem.

It is simple to fix.  Open a command window (or bash or ksh).

run the

diskpart

command.

At the prompt (diskpart has internal prompts) type

list volume

Figure out which number is being assigned to i: and

select volume n

where n is the number of that volume.

assign letter=j

(or any other drive letter you want to change the device that
was at i: to.  It shuld be unused.)

Finally, chweck your work with

list volume

and then

exit.

There is a gui way to do this to - for a complete explanation,
use the windows help system, search for "drve letter" and
look for the article titled "Assign, change or remove a drive
letter".

Good luck, and completely offsite backup your windows
system before reinstalling - and then do this. :-)

The gtk people have gotten pretty close to fixing this bug.
Some code is accessing drive I: on the machine.

See here;

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=235&atid=680472&func=detail&aid=1001597

The bug is closed, but I assure you that it should not be.
This is still a problem.

I've now added a USB printer which includes a built-in card
reader, besides the other card reader. So now I have to
cancel twice - apparently it is checking both devices to see
if there are cards in any slots. I'm now on gaim 1.1.4 with
the gtk version bundled with it; the problem has remained
with each release.

I was now able to find/read #1001597. I do have an external
4-in-1 card reader attached (after a Zip drive and USB flash).
So if I understand, either gaim or gtk is trying to read
something in each drive at startup, and produces this
message when it hits a drive without any media.
