xp media center "disk is full" message

Q: xp media center "disk is full" message

Help! I keep getting the message "Disk is full. TV can't play because the hard disk you chose in Settings is full. Clear space on this drive or choose another drive." The problem is I have lots & lots of free space left on my drive( like 120GBs) I use a HP Media center pc, & have contacted their support several times, it always boils down to " do a non-destructive recovery" & then "do a destructive recovery" These both work for a little while & then it all starts over again. I haven't been able to identify any new software, etc. that might be causing the problem. Any ideas out there??

When I go to the Winows XP Media Center I get the error message "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR3.".

When I first set up Media Player about 8 months ago I got this error message and doing a search I was able to find a fix. Then I had a problem about a month ago and reformatted my hard drive and did the same thing and found a fix.

Well, just had to reformat again and now I can't remember where I found the fix. Can someone help me?

Thanks! Oh - and BTW can someone tell me how I can find where the programs that I recored are stored.

I reformatted my computer recently, with all the same hardware and software I usually do, but this time I noticed something different.

On my E: partition (non-system), there is a folder called "9ca233a934811ecf86022b48e5" which contains two folders: "AMD64" and "i386".

I researched a little bit, and found out those folders pertain to a windows 64-bit edition, but I don't have anything to do with a 64-bit edition, mine's a 32-bit.

Here's my system specs:WinXP Media Center Edition Version 2002 SP3
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6300
NVidia GeForce 7600 GS 512MB
ST3300831AS 300GB HD
I have my HD partitioned to 3 drives:14GB System Drive (C:)
40GB Document Drive (D:)
190GB Storage Drive (E:)
I also have 40GB partitioned as an Acronis True Image Home Secure Zone, for storing Disk Images.

I was wondering why those two folders are on my E: drive, when I'm running a 32-bit version of Windows. Also, (sorry if this should be in another thread) my computer has been restarting unexpectedly while I've just been doing random things on it. Nothing graphics-intensive, or anything like that, so I don't know why it's doing that either.

Thanks for your help and time,

A:"AMD64" and "i386" folders on WinXP Media Center 32-bit edition

It sounds like those are temporary files from a driver installation. A lot of companies seem to package every possible driver in the zip or executable, extract them all to the hard drive, find the one the system needs and copy it to the system32 directory, then leave the rest behind.

In that case they should be safe to delete. It would take a bit more research on your part to make sure. Maybe a readme or help file somewhere in the directory?

First of all sorry for my bad english. But i'm from belgium, i do my best.
I have a windows vista and a few days ago he started to say "C" disk full. I've looked with a few programs what the real size is and it is 19 Gb but the vista shows 74,9Gb of the 75Gb in use.I've ran Ccleaner, Cleanup... etc and he deleted every temp file. But still without any succes. Even if i try to copy a file of 1Gb into the "C" folder he says there isn't any room any more. Does anybody has an idea what there is hapening ?

Kind regard Peter

A:Vista shows "C" disk full but he isn't full

Hey, Welcome.
Is it a Toshiba laptop? I know that some Toshiba laptops have a backup utility that is on by default that basically backs up all your information into a temp directory. Your computer might be doing the same thing. You can change the settings for this from the Toshiba recovery console, or something like that. It was located under the start menu/accessories area. Of coarse it might be a different in your case.

Ok, I built a PC a month ago and everything seemed find no problems of any sort. The other night I defragmented my hard drive and shut it down and turned it on today to a memory test and the message "Disk Boot Failure, Insert system Disk and press enter"

The computer has access to the XP pro w/ sp2 disk only as a boot device but it will not recognize it now.

I have set Cd-rom as 1st for boot sequence then hard drive I have no floppy drive and the bios has been configured to know that.

I am not sure if this means anything but in the bios the IDE Channel 0 Master says none and when I try to turn on auto detection it wont detect a hard drive.

The HDD is fully connected and has not been touched since I installed it a month ago.

I have this awful feeling that I fried the HDD when I defragmented it last night.

Any help would be very much appreciated. But please be simple this is my first build and my knowledge at this sort of thing is very very sketchy at best.

Hi all,
I recently reformatted my hand-me-down HP Media Center PC (m7640)
OS is Win XP Media Center Version 2002 Service Pack 2

(see above image for serial #, etc)
Using the recovery/reformat boot sector. HP seems to have used this drive sector (since HDD's never go bad...) in lieu of offering an OEM OS disk, but the perk is it install all of the drivers and pre-runs the windows setup steps for you. Problem is, it didn't get the graphics driver right. Every time you reboot it prompts you to install the drivers for your "video controller"

and if you do "search the computer/windows update" it finds nothing. The tower bears an NVIDIA sticker on the front, and if you go to the HP support page it tell you the download you need is for "NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics Drivers" which is a file called "sp26796.exe"
When you run the downloaded file from HP it opens the standard NVIDIA install screen and runs through a quick step before aborting, notifying you that these drivers are not applicable to your hardware.

Did I wrongly the driver/video card? Is there a way to get just the .inf's (or cab's or whatever) so I can just tell the windows driver install that I "have disk" and can skip the issues with the NVIDIA GUI installer?

A:Solved: "Video Controller" drivers for HP Media Center m7640

I was looking for a solution to this, but found none. Not even close.
Im getting "TUNER NOT FOUND" message due to ehrecvr.exe service not being able to load. Why this happened I have no clue.

I am seeking an experienced person who might shed some light on the matter.

I have a problem like MANY, many others with Vista Media Center not recognizing our TV tuners after some time. (Yeh it was working perfect at clean install,...)

We know it is related to the fact the Windows Media Center Receiver Service cannot start.

Ive combed the net for any info regarding a fix for this, but failed to find any (found a gazzillion solutions for MCE 2005 tho).

After 5 Vista instalations it happens over and over again after a while. Doesnt matter what software we install, what codecs packages we use, there is no pattern I could dettect. VMC is soo darn sensitive. And help for this issue is not forthcomming from any source.

Needless to say im tired of repeated install after install of Vista, to watch TV in the Media center just to do it all over again after the service "crashes?!?".

Im begging for help for this pesky problem, please?

Soo far what I found/ruled out:
? Its not a driver issue, cause we used different TV tuners and they all had Vista MCE suppoort, and TV was working at clean install, even after codecs were applied.

I'm a new poster here and I discovered the forum while searching for a solution to a problem that I am having with my Windows Security Center being turned off.

This is the last symptom of a problem that I noticed about a week ago. At that time my Google searches in Firefox were being hijacked to other sites on a pretty consistent, but not 100% basis. Google searches in other browsers, IE9 and Chrome still worked. Also my System Restore functions had been monkeyed with so they looked like that was not working (wouldn't open) but I could tell that it was actually working and the error message was spurious.

I was able to restore the Google search functionality in Firefox AND get system restore back by installing and running SUPERAntiSpyware. That program found several bits of malware and apparently fixed most/some of them. (Yes, I purchased a copy immediate--out of gratitude, if nothing else!). I also own a copy of Anti-MalwareBytes and ran that, but it found nothing.

I thought I was good to go, but today I noticed the little flag icon in the system tray was red X'd and I discovered the error message about the Security Center is turned off. I tried going to the service center and turn it on, but same error. I tried opening the list of services and there is none for Windows I'm assuming some malware has either removed or disabled the files in there.

As I mentioned I came here via Google search and read a long thread about a similar probl... Read more

I recently bought a brand new Hewlett Packard computer. It prompts you to back up your files and gives you the option of selecting the backup drive 'd' or writing to dvd. I selected writing to the backup drive.

The system tried to backup my files but sent an error message 'recovery drive full' It continues to prompt me to backup my files.

I solved this problem by going to the HP website, clicking on 'troubleshooting' and entering the details of my computer. I then found an FAQ somehow.

The page explained that I had been wrong to select the d drive to back up my files (how foolish of me to choose one of two options offered.) It said that the D drive was only small. I must delete the file already created there and then change the settings to create a backup onto a dvd drive instead.

You delete the backed up copy of the file by going to start/computer/HP recovery d/ where the first folder you will find will be one with the name of your computer eg. in my case Anna-PC. You then delete this file.

You then go to start and type 'backup' in the search box. Select 'backup and restore center' then 'change settings' then 'change backup settings' then give your permission to continue, then select 'DVD rw drive e' which describes itself as 'on a hard disc, cd or dvd' .

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.

My Vista PC keeps forgetting settings upon shutdown. I have 2 HDs and I wanted to put all the recorded tv shows on the second hard drive. I told media center to record to that drive and moved all of the previously recorded shows over to the second drive. I told VMCE to watch the new location instead of the old one. This worked at first, but when I restart it just says "No Recorded Shows" in Recorded TV. If I go to Add Recording or View Scheduled, and then go back, they 'magically' reappear...


I've also had problems with random freezing... I just added the second hard drive. I just installed it and then found it in disk manager and formatted it. I couldn't find a "master"/"slave" switch, but I have no problems with booting or accessing either hard drive. However, if I boot to the Vista CD and try to do a repair, it can't find the OS... It could before though... Aside from that, I installed two programs: DVD Shrink 3.2 and DVD Fab 5.


If I need to make a second thread for the second problem, that is understandable, but I think they may be related because they began at the same time...

My wife has a two month old Lenovo ideapad with Windows 7. We are now getting alerts that the D partition is near full. Is this system taking multipul backups of the harddrive C and storing them all? What are my best options to have a safe backup, but not overloading the D partition? I do see in; Computer>System>Device Manager>Disk Drives>D Drive General tab that there are two options at the bottom.
option one, (not checked in my case) "Compress this drive to save disk space".
Option two, (checked) "Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties"
Would selecting option one solve my problem? If this system is saving a snapshot of D over and over, it will only be a matter of time when option one will be overcome.
SO, I would think that there has to be a setting that will let partition D delete older backups...right?

Would it be a combination of selecting option one and changing a setting that would enable older backups to be automaticaly removed?

A:Action Center "Check backup disk space" alert

Welcome to the forum
If your D drive is made for backup's only, you can delete all files exept the newest one.
But it's advised to make backup's on an external USB drive and change the frequency of backup's to your files and olso for images to your OS.

So I got a "My Passport", I don't think it is what I expected! It is "synchronizing" my computer.

Uninstall any software you installed on the computer that came with this hard drive and just try it the easy way.

I have windows 8 pro installed for a month or two now and just upgraded to 8.1 today. I said I'd go with the pro version since it had the media center...

I thought it was a downloadable app or add-on but when I went looking to install it today it seems that..
correct me if I am wrong, but even after buying the pro edition of Windows 8 I still have to pay to download the Windows media center?

Is that correct or is there something I'm missing?

A:Windows 8 "pro" media center?

If you want WMC you have to have Windows 8 pro you cannot upgrade Windows 8 to WMC. WMC is a $10.00 upgrade.

Ok where do I begin?! I have been dealing with viruses, spyware/malware for the past week. It all started with Norton advising me that I had been infected with Trojan. Vundo and Trojan.Zonebac. After that I started receiving many different pop ups warning me about critical system alerts. I also had an annoying yellow triangle at the bottom of my screen warning me about different trojans and worms. More evil friends included 2 new icons that had made their home on my desktop one named "Live Safety Center" and the other "Online Security Guide", also installed was a new toolbar named "Security Toolbar 7.1". I have scanned my computer with many different programs and have somehow finally managed to get rid of the pop ups and toolbar, although I know I'm probably still infected somewhere. I'm sorry this is so long but, I wanted to explain EVERYTHING! I'm running Windows XP SP2, and have followed all steps to post. I downloaded DSS, but after many attempts to run, it just wouldn't let me. I do have a fresh hijackthis log and my Panda report, I hope this is good enough.
Many thanks in advance to whomever helps me, I am desperate!

This began after dumbly going to some non-commercial website. NAV auto-protect did initially detect an infection, but indicated it could not quarantine or delete.

Now when launching IE6, it attempts to redirect to a fake virus software website. When I choose the "not recommended" link, IE crashes shortly afterward. Also, I get a fake "Security Center Alert" popup every few minutes. I stupidly clicked on the link to update the security center.

With System Restore deactivated, I have run (all updated, full scans in safe mode) NAV, Ad-aware, Spybot, SpySweeper, Avira and CCleaner. (Then I found this website and learned I should have waited to do this.) Spybot found a couple of registry entries, but that was the only detection made by any of the programs, other than NAV's initial auto-protect message. File gmer.txt is attached.

Before any work can be done on this machine, there is something that requires your immediate intervention.

This machine is messed up pretty badly because you have several anti-virus programs on your machine. That's not a good idea!!

Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & produces undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstallPost a fresh logs when you have completed the above task.

Recently, an error message "Windows detected a hard disk problem" always pop ups in my monitor.

I have done "Error Checking" also " Defragmentation"...but that error message doesn't disappear.

What should I do?

Thanks a Lot.

A:Error message " Widows detected a hard disk problem"

That is not a most welcome message.

I would immediately backup the most important personal data and run the DOS version of Manufacturer's Diagnostic Utility. If it passes without any event reported, fine. But if it finds bad sectors and even if it repairs it, be wary. Not to be taken aback by any catastrophic failure that may occur unannounced, always backup all your personal data and also image your system regularly.

Hi there!
First of all thanks for the great toturial and the forum.

It then automatically cycles back to the question on how to install (i.e. with keeping data and apps or without) and then back into the above mentioned error message.

This is what I already tried or made sure of prerequisites needed:
I have made sure that there is definitely enough disk space available.My C: partition (where windows resides on) is 106 GB large and has currently over 58 GB of free space available.The system partition that is supposed to be 350 MB is still 350 MB (I read something about this potentially being reduced to 100 MB by other tools ...).I have deinstalled the Kaspersky anti virus tool (reinstalled it now after several tries with no success).I have disabled (i.e. fully decrypted) the disk encryption bitlocker on all disks.

I have Both Window XP (C:/) and Vista Premium (E:/) on my system.

Sometimes when I run vista i get a message say something like this: "Disk E:/ is corrupt, run chkdsk on the drive to resolve issues" After a reboot the chkdsk utily runs before it opens vista and fixes any issues, but i get the same problem a few days later.

Any Ideas?

A:constant message "Disk E:/ is corrupt, run chkdsk on the drive to resolve issues"

I'd be testing both the RAM and the hard drive. Vista is really good at stressing out a system and may show issues when XP was fine, as was the case with XP versus 98.

To test the memory I'd use:

Then find out what brand of hard drive you have, probably will show you in Device Manager, and use the manufacturer's diagnostics to test it.

Another cause could be the drivers for the motherboard. Have you installed any chipset drivers? What motherboard do you have?

Yesterday when I switch on my computer, it automatic diskcheck on my E disk. I have 3 HDD, which is C: (My main partition, installed Windows on this HDD), D: is for all my game files (Installed games) and E: is for all my music, movies, game installer, software etc.

So back to the point, when I switch on my computer, and get to the "Windows is Starting", and it stuck right there for about 5-10 minutes. Firstly, I have no patient so I restated the computer, and second or third time also have the same problem. So I choose to wait patiently, after 5-10 minutes, it have a black screen for about 1 to a few minutes, then it started the disk check on my E drive.

Once the process started ( I have total 234240 file record as shown on the disk check ) and continue to file record 800, it started to give me message stated "File record segment 800 is unreadable, File record segment 801 is unreadable" and so on, and sometimes it continue to go smoothly without the message, but not long or sooner it will appear again. Almost the whole process I get these message which worried me, and I wonder if my hard disk is failing badly and unable to recover.
It continues to finish the process and attempt to fix the bad sector. And after that it successfully log onto Windows, so I can use it normally again.

But I notice my E: HDD cannot access and the "My Computer" screen is loading very slow, and sometimes goes unrespond. One thing very weird is that after I few hours ... Read more

A:Hard disk is failing? Error message"File record segment is unreadable"

The "File record segment xxx is unreadable" error is an indication of failing hard drive. You should backup the data from this drive before it's too late.

Next, run some diagnostic testing on the failing hard drive; most HDD manufacturers have the diagnostic software available from their website. Software from Seagate will work with most brand.

If this drive would be mine, I'd just get a new one, the drive certainly will not get better...

I recently burned a couple of CDS (filled with videos and mp3s) and MADE SURE that they worked properly and were burned correctly BEFORE I deleted the videos and mp3s from my computer. Well, I burned about 5 cds. I was checking over some of the CDs and 2 of the burned CDs dont want to work. I get the following error:

"Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows"

I'm trying to install Windows 7 64bit to HP dc7800 Ultra slim desktop PC from USB flash drive (since PC hasn't got CD/DVD drive). At the partition selection step I get message "Windows cannot copy files to this disk".
I've already googled a lot and read this forum topics, but still can't overcome this issue.

I've tried the following:
format HDD and create partition table with DISKPART via win7 disk command promt,
format HDD and create partition table with GParted (creating to primary patition: ~50 GB NTFS '"WIN7" and ~100 GB NTFS "DATA",
wipe all data from HDD writing random data,
create bootable USB flash with different tools (Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool, Novicorp WinToFlash),
memtest86+ both operating memory modules (2 x 2GB) for 6 passes,
leave only one module connected to motherboard (with each),
reset CMOS setting in 3 ways (via BIOS, removing power cable and CMOS battery, pushing CLR_CMOS button on motherboard),
set HDD as the first boot device
but nothing helped.

I've searched in BIOS for different HDD emulation modes (AHCI, IDE), but the only present setting present:
Storage -> Device Configuration -> Hard Disk (SATA0):
Emulation type: Hard Disk, None,
Multisector Transfers: 8, 16, Disabled,
Translation Mode: Off, Automatic, Bit Shift, LBA Assisted, User.

What can I do? Your help is appreciated.

I get this error message whenever I try to run iTunes or load a music CD. I cannot get it to disappear, and end up having to reboot. I have run A-Spyware & A-V software, and have cleaned my register.

I saw a solution to this in forum threads, which referred to using "Hijack This". But the solution required someone else to look at my log file, and then suggest specific actions.

Can anyone help me through this please?

After formatting I keep getting error message "Invalid system disk
Replace the disk, and then press any key"

I use this drive for an old PC that was running Xubuntu but now want to reinstall Win 7 after I went complete Linux on my main machine. I know it works. Every article online says the drive is either dead, infected, or whatever. I'm also booting from a flash drive, another thing I read is it's trying to boot from CD instead of USB and change boot order to fix, obviously that's what I'm already doing.

It's formatted fat32 with MBR. Any ideas what to do?

You would do well to follow the instructions for it sounds like you have a HD on the verge of failing.

Probably just co-incidental that you just did a clean install.

After you back up run a chkdsk to check the HD status.


Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

B- Elevated Command Prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

My computer (Gateway GT5016H) has a slot to insert the memory card into the tower of the computer. She inserted the card, retrieved the pics and proceeded to burn them to a cd. When she was done, she shut down the computer.
Now evertime i start the compuer i get an error message pop up "windows-no disk" "there is no disk in drive. Please insert disk into drive." I also must click cancel multiple time to get rid of the error message. Gateway tech's could not help resolve the problem and told me to contact the manufacture of the sd card because they believe there is a compatability issue. I have windows XP if you need to know.

I receive daily a "Low Disk Space" error message which is incorrect and in my estimation fradulent. It goes on to give an alternative to rectify this situation by offering to "Speed up your computer and remove all viruses that are on your computer." Of course all of this is for a price. If you opt in and then change your mind before you totally commit they offer the same package for half price. I refuse to be "sucked in" by this fraudulent company.

I have gone to the internet to try and find out how I may get rid of this enemy. I have used Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsofts Security fix program all to no avail.

Hi, I'm having some trouble in the GIMP, especially when opening or saving files. Going to the C: drive goes fine, but when I go to a following directory, I get the "No Disk" error message, telling me to insert a disk into "the" drive. Whichever that may be.

If that were all, it wouldn't have been a great deal. But whichever button I press in the error message, it just pops up again. And again, and again, and again... This is seriously bad for one's nerves. Of course, I tried to click very rapidly, and eventually it does stop, if you're lucky enough not to click once too many. Because chances are you click on the save or load dialog, then the message pops up, and you can start all over again! I tell you, it's only a matter of time before I have a mental breakdown.

I was actually uncertain as of in which forum to post, as I suspect this could be a Windows problem as well. You see, whenever I stick a USB stick into my computer, the drive letter assigned to it isn't the next one unused. Instead, it skips one. So perhaps my computer thinks there's one more drive - one without a disk in it - while there really isn't. That's just an idea though.

I'm using Windows XP SP2, GIMP 2.2.10 and GTK 2.8.9. Both are the latest version, and there is no mention of a "No Disk" message in GIMP's Bugzilla.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, of course!

I have vista home premium 64 with media center. don't have any desire to hook up the computer to a tV or surround sound system, so is there really any reason to open up and install media center service?

I burn cds, do some computer studio recording, sometimes plug a phonograph (remember those?) or a cassette into the computer to record.

is there anything in media center that makes those experiences better?

My computer persistantly displays this error message saying "Windows - No Disk: There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive." When I look at the My Computer screen It shows my floppy drive, my C drive, the unknown Removable Disk Drive (D:), CD drives E and F, my other internal drive (G:), my external (H:), the second partition on my internal drive (I:), a DVD drive (J:), and then finally the second unknown Removable Disk Drive (K:). I have no idea what these Removable disk drives are or how they got here but I think they are causing the problem. Windows thinks there is a disk mounted but there isnt. If it helps the applications I was using at the time of when the incident first began was Azureus, my DVD drive, Divx Player, iTunes, and maybe some more random stuff. This error message pops up whenever I open multiple programs such as iTunes and Azureus. I could REALLY use some help with this as it is starting to become very annoying!

A:Keep getting error message saying "There is no disk in the drive"

right click on my computer then manage. click on disk management and see what it specifies K:\ as. you can right click and goto properties to get a list of drives attached and maybe it'll give you more specs on this removable drive.

is is possible you installed some software from a removable disk (like a usb key) and the software you are running is looking for the source media? it's possible this new drive has nothing to do with the windows error

Other than that the scanlog is ok.

When did this problem begin? If recent, you might just want to try a System Restore.

The problem is occasionally due to the system trying to access some removable media which has no disk in the drive, such as a zip drive.

It can also be due to drive letters being assigned to drives that no longer exist. What exactly is on your "c:" drive?;en-us;330137

This problem is making me crazy:

I am trying to copy some files to a CD Disk, so that I can open them on a different computer. I have put a disk in the drive, highlighted the file, clicked on "send to", and I get the message: "Please insert a disk into Drive E (or F, whichever I happen to try it with)".

The drives won't recognize that there is a blank CD. If I put in an audio CD or a DVD, it recognizes it, and plays it fine. It's just the blank ones that are giving me a problem. I have tried several different brands of CD . . . same result . . . "Please insert a disk into drive".

Does ANYONE have a remedy for this problem, or a suggestion? Any help will be appreciated.

FYI : My computer is a Dell 8300, running Windows XP. My drives are an NEC CD-RW and a Samsung DVD-ROM.

A:Can't Copy to CD . . "No Disk In Drive" Message

Stupid question.
Are you putting the blank CD in the NEC device?

Open "my computer".
RIGHT click the NEC drive
Left click "properties"
Left click the "recording" tab.
Is the box "enable recording on this drive" checked?

When did the problem begin?
Can you associate the onset of the problem to the addition or removal of hardware or software, to include an update to Windows or your antivirus program? Have you run a registry cleaner recently? I am NOT suggesting that you run a reg cleaner.

Have you EVER been able to burn files on this computer, using this NEC drive.

Basically, to be successful, you need the correct combination of burner / device, optical disk, software.
Are you using CD - R disks? Which brand & model?

Which optical disk are you using?

Which disk burning software is on your computer? Which disk burning software has EVER been installed on your computer?

I realize that your problem is burning, but many of the concepts are the same.

I am using Windows XP SP2. I just uninstalled Norton AntiVirus 2004. The uninstall would not complete, so I downloaded and ran the SymNRT program (from Symantec) to remove the program. All went well. The program advised that all Norton products had been successfully removed. Upon reboot, after I click my icon on the XP "Welcome" screen and type in my password, windows loads the desktop as normal. A few seconds later howeverm I get the following message:
"Windows - no disk Please insert disk in drive"
Clicking 'cancel' removes the message and everything appears to be fine. I did a bit of research and have already tried the following to no avail:

Clearing recent files list from QuickTime
Starting the PC in Safe Mode to see if the error comes up (it does).
Disabling SpySweeper from running at startup
Disabling ZoneAlarm from running at startup
