Hey guys, I recently out of the blue started getting this error at complete random: "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk1\DR1" This pop up takes me out of whatever game or anything I'm doing which is why it's so annoying. When I click cancel it happens again except it says dr2, then again dr3, dr4, dr5 which is 5 times I have to click cancel. It then goes away for a random amount of time, but it will pop up later. This can get extremely annoying. I can leave my computer with nothing going on for like 8 hours straight, and then out of the blue this error occurs. I don't know what is causing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have a removable drive plugged into the computer?
