Has it ever worked?
I'd try to re-install again.
I've never had a disk and downloaded it from the internet from Adobe.
Do you think I should still reinstall?
It only began to do this recently. Have no idea why!!!
Did a complete reinstall and I'm still getting the same error message when I start up Elements.
My reinstall never solved my problem. Any other suggestions?
I am having the same problem and it just started last week. I uninstalled and then reinstalled and shut down the computer. Came back and problem is still there. Help please.
Just came across some kb article's on this from Microsoft:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/there-is-no-disk-in-th e-drive-please-insert-a-disk/da98f10d-019a-459c-8a86-7c71493fbdaf?msgId=92833a9b-e182-4e51 -aca3-750975b43adb
Please try the steps mentioned on either/both blogs. Please let me know if that doesn't help.
Bob Gager's reply might be one correct answer, but there is at least one more - as follows:
On my Windows 7 PC I have a permanent USB-connected card reader which appears as removeable drives E:(CF/microdrive) and F:(SD cards).
If I do not have any recording media in these 2 'drives', I get the error message ref putting a drive in Device\Harddisk\DR5 when starting Adobe Premier Elements. If I do have recording media in the 2 'drives', there is no error message.
In this case the easy answer to the error message is to check your PC for card readers which appear as removeable drives and either disconnect the card reader OR insert recording media in the card reader.
PS, In this case, before discovering the above, the error message would go away if the 'ignore' and 'continue' buttons were clicked enough times.
