    I believe Quicktime may be searching for a card reader of some sort. If you have one, plug it back in. It's looking to the last location of files it played. To make it forget, keep trying to get the message to close. With the Quicktime Player open, Click on File, Open Recent, and Clear Menu.

    If you can't get the error message to close, go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quicktime

    Rename the file: QuickTimeFavorites.qtr

    I would upgrade to the most recent version.

    We have multiple memory cards for our digital camera, so maybe it is looking for movies from those. Of course, we can't have them all in at the same time.

    Reading suggestions from others, I deleted QuickTimeFavorites.qtr . I noticed however that it keeps coming back, and unless I clear the recent menu problem every time, the original problem comes back.

    So here are my questions.
    1. Should I rename quicktimefavorites.qtr?
    2. I have already bought quicktime pro? Do I need to buy something new?
    3. If I have multiple memory cards (or cds for that matter with MOV files), am I stuck with the problem.

    Thanks

    The Quicktimefavorites will keep being recreated, this is normal. Maybe it will help if you clear the 'recent menu' each time before you close Quicktime.

    But, you're not the only one to experience this problem. Make sure you are running the latest version of Quicktime.
