Error: “There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive F:”
This message may also contain different drive descriptions.
- There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive F:
- There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR2
- There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR4
This message is displayed when a unique icon is assigned to a macro and Macro Express cannot locate the file containing the icon. There are several possible reasons for the icon file to no longer be available.
- The icon file has been moved or deleted.
- The drive containing the icon is no longer available.
– The icon file was on a removable drive, such as a CD-ROM, DVD, BluRay, USB or flash and the drive is not connected.
– The icon file was on a mapped or networked drive letter and is not available.
– You are using a new computer with different drives. Perhaps your old computer has drives D:, E: and F: but your new one only has drive C:.
- You are using a new computer and Macro Express is not installed in the same folder as the computer where your macros were written. On new computers running 64-bit versions of Windows, Macro Express is installed by default in the folder “C:\Program Files (x86)\Macro Express3” or “C:\Program Files (x86)\Macro Express Pro”. This is different than the “C:\Program Files\Macro Express3” or “C:\Program Files\Macro Express Pro” folder used on your old computer. Macros written on the old computer that use icons in the “C:\Programs Files\Macro Express3\Icons\” or “C:\Programs Files\Macro Express Pro\Icons\” folder may display the “There is no disk in the drive” message.
To fix this problem, continue to click the ‘Continue’ button on the “There is no disk in the drive” message until Macro Express starts up. Then change the icons assigned to your macros. If you have multiple macros with unique icons that cannot be located you will receive this message multiple times.
Changes have been made to Macro Express v 3.9 to reduce the number of messages displayed, to find icons where the location has changed due to different locations of the Program Files folder and to display a red box icon next to macros where the icon file could not be located.
