Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk2\DR2.

Hi Guys,
Have just done a clean install of win7 pro. Also Adobe Design Premium CS5.
When I start photoshop I get the following message popping up repeatedly:

There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk2\DR2.

Any clues as to what's going on?
Cheers,
Gene Stevo
BTW Happy Christmas to one and all

A very important feature to SF is the edit feature for when we make life's little mis-spellings.

Solved the problem

When I plugged my usb cable from my wireless printer (because it is easier to do scanning that way) to my Windows 7 32 bit desktop computer I received the error. The printer has several flash drive inputs (Lexmark model X4530). I started up Chrome and kept getting the error. I shut down Chrome unplugged the usb cable and voila when I started Chrome no more problem. So look for any hardware devices plugged into a USB and try unplugging them to see which one is causing the problem.
