Computer question

I use GAIM for chatting (which combines all chat programs such as aol, etc). Recently I when I log on to GAIM I get a message that says " There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into the drive". What the heck? I can click continue, and all is fine, but why that message suddenly? I have v. 1.50 which is the most current version. Suggestions?

sounds like a driver issue, probobly from when the program was downloaded. If things work, I wouldn't worry about it.

You could try re-installing it and see if that helps. But like TATTRAT said, if it's not affecting the performance in anyway, no big deal. It could be just minor bug in the software as well.

Sounds like it's a configuration issue of some sort.

While I'm not familiar with that program in particular, it appears that your PC is looking for something (a file, most likely) somewhere that is registering as an empty drive. Do any of your floppy or CD/DVD drives try to engage when (or right before) you get that message?

i use trillian as well and recommend it to everyone I know.

If you want to stick with the program you are using though, I would suggest as other have that you try re-installing it. It sounds like there is a missing file and the re-install will take care of that.
