    Reconnect Your Drive


    I keep getting this error message!

    It says you must do this to have "File Save" work!

    But nowhere does it tell how to do it!

    Need more info than that. What drive needs to be reconnected, is it an internal drive or external USB? What are you doing when you get that prompt?

    It doesn't say.

    I can't give you information that I don't have.

    If I had it I, could fix it myself.

    Thanx for the help, but no help.

    Someone out there must have had the same problem.

    My guess is its file backup software trying to save to an external drive that isn't currently plugged in.

    Ok! That sound like it, I did add a drive. I will look at it from that perspective.

    Thanx
