Modern computers typically don't need a Floppy drive. Try disconnecting it.
Disconnect the drive? Excuse me, but there must be a reason for me still using a floppy drive. It sounded so much like a linux fanboy answer: "Go buy a linux compatible modem/video card/WiFi"
That's not to say I haven't thought about disabling it in the device manager, but I wrote this because I'm looking for a solution and not a workaround.
I have CS3, not CS4, but I do have a 3.5 floppy... I have never had Premiere try to access that drive
I will GUESS that you have some TSR that is trying to read the drive for some reason
I am with you. There has never been any version of PrPro, that has ever tried to access the floppy drive - never.
There has got to be something telling PrPro through the Project file, to look at the floppy. Some link is pointing there.

That's fine. But if you can't find the former, you may have to settle for the latter.
Haven't had time to test again. I'll create the next project in an entirely different HD and see what happens.
Yes. I've been looking for a TSR to blame, but the only time I've heard and seen the floppy drive try to read on its own has been exactly while encoding. It's weird...
