error on opening file
Hello..Im not sure where to put this and I hope someone here can help me. I love gimp and want to continue using but Im getting an error that reads

There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk1\DR1.

and will not allow me to open anything

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck, I installed gimpshop as well but its the same with all.

Any ideas out there Please??

Deborah

I assumed it was a gimp problem simply because that's the only time I see this error..on opening Gimp and then opening a file in Gimp...

sorry, I'm in Israel so there's a big time difference. I'm on windows 7, I'll try what you suggest and get back to you with results. Thanks.

You're only one hour ahead of me.
really?..never assume right? :-D Blush
Just popping in to say we played with a number of things..ran 'hijack this' and did change the name of one of the Host files..and voila..all is running smooth once again.
Thank you for your help! much appreciated
