[New-bugs-announce] [issue22739] "There is no disk in the drive" error

Lachlan Kingsford report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Lachlan Kingsford:

An error is being raised that 'There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR1. Cancel, Try Again, Continue)'.

The line of code referred to has no reference to any file or disk access. None of its calling procedures have any file or disk access. As such, I am fairly confident that the error is not caused by an error in my code.

The Python interpreter was embedded via cx_freeze. The embedded interpreter was Win64 running on 64 bit Windows 7. The computer that reported the bug did not have Python installed on it.

I have been unable to replicate the bug. Similar bugs have been reported due to USB sticks and phones, but none were plugged in or removed while the program was being run.

At this stage, I am unsure if this is a bug with Windows, cx_freeze, or pygame. The bug is also listed on https://github.com/lkingsford/AtlasWarriors/issues/5, with access to the source available. You can view the stack trace and an image of the error, and the stack trace there.

I am not sure if this is a known issue but I am unable to find any reference to it.
