"There Is No Disk in D Drive. Please Insert a Disk into Drive." A big problem.

Recommended Posts

I have used Cura for a long time now, but since 2.4.0, from when I start cura and till I save my first file, Cura continues to spams with the message "No disk in D Drive, Please Insert a Disk into Drive".

1. There is no D Drive.

2. As soon as i tell Cura to continue, it popups aging.

I can still use Cura, but it require me to spam click whit a auto clicker for 1 min.

Does it still say there is no disk in drive D, or in drive X ?

If X, then please change the drive letter of your removable drive. Having a removable drive X is much less common than having a removable drive D. Having a removable drive D should no longer be a problem.

What you did not mention was that the error does NOT say "There is No Disk in Drive D" or "There is No Disk in Drive X". Windows wants a disc inserted into \Device\Harddisk11\DR11. For future reference, omitting that detail makes it harder to help you.

 

First step is trying to find out what drive \Device\Harddisk11\DR11 is. What sort of drives do you have connected to your computer, including cardreaders, optical drives. and usb (hard)drives? Also, what version of Windows do you use?

Thanks Ahoeben - yes, that's a fair point, I somehow merged error messages there after spending too much time on help forums. DR11 corresponds to one of the slots on my external card reader, but the message will change to another slot if I manage to stick a card in the one throwing up the error. I don't have cards to fit all the slots unfortunately! I'm on Windows 7

Booom! Sorted. Sweet relief. Ok, so removing the external card reader didn't help things. Eventually tracked down that it was the microSD card reader on my internal card reader that was assigned as drive X.nallath suggested changing this to another letter, other than X,  and that sorted it. Hope this is of use to someone else. 

 

Thanks again for all the help getting this sorted everyone.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
