Issue Details

I am receiving a "There Is No Disk in the Drive. Please Insert a Disk into Drive" message when attempting to open National Instruments software.


If I put the installation CD back in the drive or connect a USB stick the issue goes away. What can I try to correct this behavior?

Solution

To fix it you can attempt to rename the Drive units in the PC as Microsoft suggests in the ​There Is No Disk in the Drive. Please Insert a Disk into Drive \Device\harddisk\Dr1" Error Message When You Start Your Computer article. 

 

Additional Information

  • The message you are receiving can be triggered by non NI related software as well, and it seems to correspond to an Operating System issue to properly recognize the naming of the units (USB, CD/DVD, HD) in the system. The problem can present itself either while starting the PC or right after attempting to run a .exe file.
  • The message might occur when the OS assigns a driver letter to a USB hub and therefore could disappear when disconnecting this hub.
