Please help! I have used PE9 for several months. I tried to open PE9 and I get an error message in a dialog box titled: Adobe Premiere Elements.exe - No Disk. "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR3."
I try clicking on cancel, Try Again, Continue, but the dialog box continues to show after hundreds of clicks. I cannot use my PE9 at all.
Here are my system details:

I appreciate your help with this problem.
I figured out my problem. I had a USB thumb drive inserted previously for a project. I had copied some avi's to my previous project. After removing the thumb drive, I started getting these errors. I inserted my thumb drive and the errors ceased! I deleted the previous selections in my "Organize" tab. I saved my new project and I can now proceed to edit more videos. I hope this may help someone else who is a newbie!
Thanks for this forum, I am learning alot!
Removeable drives do cause problems when the program tries to find files
That is why I always copy all video files to my data drive before starting a project, so the files stay in one place
My 3 hard drives are configured as...
1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and all program installs
2 - 320Gig data for Win7 swap file and video project files
3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (*)
(*) for 4 drives, drive 3 all source files & drive 4 all output files
Search Microsoft to find out how to redirect your Windows swap file
