[bug report]keeping on asking for cd-rom disk files?
« on: March 20, 2009, 11:06:13 AM »
today I setup a software "philips mp3 device manager" with a cd, then I shut down my computer without taking the disk out.
after reboot, I take out the setup disk, then I find when I call out the new version FFAR(v2.52.02), when typing a word, FFAR say: "please insert disk to F:", F: is my cd-rom.
is this a bug?

its basically querying it's history of launched files to speed up search, causing the OS to poll that removable drive.
what i need to do is have it not do this for missing drives.. automatically if possible, or with a list of drives to ignore if not.
thanks for the report -- what you can do in the meantime as a workaround is go to options -> launchhistory -> delete the entry.
