    Hi,
    I'm new here, and am hoping you can help me out with a most frustrating problem. Every time I log on to my computer, or restart it, I receive a windows error message which reads:

    340: qttask.exe - No Disk
    There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk1\DR3

    I've attached a screen shot of the image of the message.

    I have no clue what this means, but it's driving me crazy...can someone please help?? Thanks in advance!

    Hi DD :)
    Welcome to TSG !

    Go to start>run. Type in msconfig. Click on the startup tab. Now scroll down until you find the entry for Qttask (quicktime) and uncheck it. Click apply, then ok. Reboot your computer and see if the error is gone.

    I have the same problem. QTTASK has problems... but is there a better solution or explaination as to why it's happening other then desabling it from running and walking away from the problem?

    Hiya and welcome ToddTech

    All QTTASK is, is the tray icon that is loaded up at startup, that is near your clock. If you have uninstalled Quicktime, then sometimes the entries aren't removed. Just doing what mtbird suggested, ensures Windows not to look for it on startup.

    Regards

    You don't have to disable QuickTime or remove the QuickTime systray icon to clear up the "qttask.exe" error that complains about "No disk in drive. Please insert disk."

    This error occurs when you have used QuickTime to view a video file that you had stored on a removable disk, such as a CR-ROM, that is no longer in place. ... Like many other applications, the QuickTime viewer keeps track of your last few most recently viewed files. If one of those recently viewed files was on a removable drive, QT barfs when it starts up at boot time and can't find the file.

    The Fix: Fire up QuickTime (double click on the icon in your systray); Select "File > OpenRecent > ClearMenu". This will clear the most recently viewed files and eliminate the boot-time error message without requiring you to uninstall QT or remove the icon from your systray. :cool: F.A.B.

    Thanks for the post. It sure seemed like a extreme measure to do those other recommendations. Thanks for the simple solution. This should be passed back to the developers to fix.

    Thanks alot BitMonkey for the info! I did exactly as you said and found out my Boyfriend was looking at more porn from his zip disks, so I now know what to do when I leave him alone when I go to the mall to buy him a 40 oz. MGD beer mug. So much for thinking I was doing something sweet for him! Oh well, guys will be guys! :)
