It sounds like you downloaded the wrong application, namely Adobe Premiere Elements.
If you meant Adobe Photoshop Elements, you're in the wrong forum. This is not the Elements forum.
Here's the link to the forum you want:
If you mean Photoshop proper, since you are posting in the Photoshop forum, give version details and your system specs.
Note that this is boilerplate text.
If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,
such as your platform (Mac or Win),
exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CS6", but something like CS6v.13.0.6) and of Bridge,
your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance
the type of file you were working on,
machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,
what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,
what error message(s) you receive,
if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,
if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.
someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster, who is not a Windows user).
a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too.
Please read this FAQ for advice on how to ask your questions correctly for quicker and better answers:
Topic or subject titles should be clear, pertinent and concise so that individual users can tell at a glance if they can help or not.

Someone has transferred your thread to the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum (video editing).
Before going further, when did you get the message
Adobe Premiere.exe - NO DISK - There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive/device/harddisk/DR1
Assumed installing and/or working with Premiere Elements 13, not Photoshop Elements 13. Is that correct? For now, I am assuming your program is on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit. Please confirm.
There have been several threads here reporting this message with Premiere Elements 13.
If this applies to you,
1. Have you tried to restart the computer and still got the message afterward?
2. What is your drive situation, especially related to removable drives?
If the restart of the computer does not resolve the problem, then do
1. Uninstall of the program using the usual Control Panel route.
2. Do a free ccleaner run through to get rid of any leftovers from incomplete installs reinstalls
3. Reinstall with antivirus and firewall(s) disabled.
Please review and consider and let us know the outcome with the details.
I got this message Adobe Premiere Elements.exe - NO DISK right after signing In and registering Premiere Elements.
Yes sorry it is only the Premiere Elements program not Photoshop I am having problems with now (although it was with both but photoshop seems to have righted itself).
I am running Windows 7.
I have restarted my computer and has not righted the problem.
I live in NZ we do not have High Speed Internet in my area and it took me 4 days to download the program to start with. Is there another way around trying to fix this problem without having to uninstall Premiere Elements and my antivirus? really would be a huge inconvenience?
Any help would be very much appreciated, is it possible to get the program on an actual disk?
Presumably you saved the download to disk and/or burned it to disk (CD/DVD)?
I was thinking exactly that but my question would be, would it not also download the error that i am experiencing?
More than happy to do this, finding time to sort out these things is very difficult and taking time away from the more important things that I should be doing.
I understand your situation on the uninstall/free ccleaner run through/reinstall with antivirus and firewall(s) disabled with or without
you having retained the original installation files. The odds are probably best that that might work, but...
If you say that the Photoshop Elements similar problem righted itself, maybe the following should be explored...quicker to do and rule in or out...
Delete the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file and, if necessary, the whole 13.0 Folder in which the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file exists.
Local Disk C
and in the 13.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete. If that does not work, then you delete the whole 13.0 Folder in which the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file exists. Be sure to be working with Folder Option Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives active so that you can see the complete path cited.
You might want to try the free ccleaner run through to get rid of leftovers from incomplete installs reinstalls (omitting the uninstall reinstall scheme suggested above)
We will be watching for further developments.
Another thought to rule out...
Local Disk C
Adobe Premiere Elements 13
and in the Adobe Premiere Elements 13 Folder find the Adobe Premiere Elements.exe file. Then right click that file, select and apply Run As
Administrator. Then double click the file, and note if the program opens with the no disc message.
The above is not high on my troubleshooting list, but...
Another possibility is to create a new User Account with Administrative Privileges and install and run Premiere Elements 13 on it.
This no disc issue is getting more and more frequently reported. But, like earlier versions with that issue, the cause, especially after
version 11, is hard to pin point.
Maybe a break through, maybe not.
PRE_help has just posted in the thread of another who posted with this Premiere Elements No Disc issue and has suggested the deletion
of the plug-in named OldFilm.AEX as a possibility for causing the No Disc situation.
Please explore PRE_help's details in the above link and let us know if that worked for you.
I have read the posts as you have advised and was ready to try some remedial action as i have not had the time to be able to sort this earlier. My first step was to burn the program Adobe Premiere Elements 13 to a disk. Then my son asked me what is the error I keep getting so i opened the program, selected 'new project' and so far no problem, then shut it down thinking that was when the error message always showed, no error message. Then we uploaded a short video from our IPAD and saved it to the program, still no errors.
It appears to have righted itself and i am more than a bit stunned to say the least. Because of Xmas I will not have time to play around with the program but will relook at it in the new year.
Could you please keep me posted of any more developments in case it hasn't solved the problem and I will look into it further in the new year.
Great news about the self righting No Disk error of your Premiere Elements 13. This gets stranger and stranger.
But, hopefully the problem will stay gone.
I will post additional developments with dealing with this error as they are reported. I have not experienced this problem
first hand (so far).
Best wishes. Yours is a valuable contribution which is appreciated by all.
