How To Fix the “Windows No Disk Error” with Apple’s QuickTime Movie Player

Do you try to view .mov files on your pc with the Apple QuickTime movie player and get an error message that says, something like “No Disk or Windows No Disk”? Also a bunch of annoying windows pop up and you have to hit cancel or continue for like 50 times before the error message goes away. If so, I have the solution for you. This bugged me for a long time before I figured out what to do. The problem occurs because you have recently viewed a movie on a drive that is no longer available. For example you may have viewed a movie off of your digital camera’s SD card. 

There’s an easy fix for this. Just clear your list of recently viewed movies. To do this, follow these simple instructions: Open the QuickTime movie player. From the File menu, choose “Open Recent”, and then choose “Clear Menu”.

If you are going to view movies on a drive other than your C:\ hard drive, be sure to clear the recently viewed movies from the list so that you won’t receive that annoying error message again.

    Sounds like you have the solution but, I can’t get quicktime to open without it “not responding”, and then shutting off. Then all the annoying pop ups no disk.
