Summary: Incorrect Error Message. (gaim 1.0.0)

Initial Comment:
Whenever I start gaim up after installing it, it runs fine 
(on the first run).

Every time I open the program afterwards I would get 
the following error:

gaim.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into 
drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR7.

My options are cancel, try again, or continue. cancel or 
continue make it load as usual. try again just brings up 
the same message again and again until I clock one of 
the other two.

This stayed after a reformat and reinstall of windows 
(which I performed when I got a new, third, HDD).

I am using windows XP, SP2 (although I beleive I even 
had it with SP1).

It has existed for the past 5 or so versions of giam, but I 
recall a time when it wasnt there.

I have 3 harddrives, all formated as FAT32 partitions.
Windows is installed on a 20 gig drive. C:
D: is 160GB
E: is 160GB

I tried installing gaim on C or on D and it didnt matter.

ps, while i can remove the drive for the camera data cards, 
the usb hub I am refering too is actually the one thats part of 
the motherboard.
So opening the computer up isnt a solution (yea, i thought of 
it, what with me building it)

I don't have a removeable device.
WinXP misrecognizes my built in USB as a removeable device.
And I have an internal digital card reader (the type used in 
cameras), the bays of which are considered by windows as 
removeable HDDs.

Those are all built in. So I cannot remove them.

This problem appears to be a GTK problem related to
removable storage devices, such as a digital camera, memory
stick, or similar device.

Try removing and disabling any of those device before
starting gaim, as a workaround.

This bug has been previously reported, but I can't seem to
find it.
