Without any reason I suddenly receive an error message when booting Google Chrome:

"There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \ Device \ Harddisk3 \ ​​DR7"

(I don't know if it's translated it right, I received the message in German):

"es befindet sich kein Datenträger im Laufwerk. Legen Sie einen Datenträger in Laufwerk \Device\Harddisk3\DR7 ein")

It seems like I need to change a drive letter, but I actually don't know which letter and if I'm headed in the right direction.

These are my drives:

  • C:\ for installation stuff
  • D:\ for data
  • E:\ is the DVD-drive
  • J:\ is the BD-ROM-drive

I actually never changed these drive letters. My operating system is Windows 7. Re-installing Google Chrome didn't help.

How do I solve this problem? What's the issue?

windows boots fine ? – Shekhar Jan 10 '12 at 7:18
yes, windows boots fine. Without any problems. Rebooting Windows also doesn't help. – Kirinriki Jan 10 '12 at 7:27
custom chrome builds are usually not very stable , you could try a fresh install – Shekhar Jan 10 '12 at 7:38
wow, seems like this was easier than I expected. I already deinstalled and installed it again, but it seems like I installed with an older installation which caused the problem. Now I took the installation from the original page and right now I don't have any problems anymore. Thanks for the hint. facepalm to myself – Kirinriki Jan 10 '12 at 8:17
Please don't edit "solved" into your title. Post the solution as an answer (when you can) and then accept it. – ChrisF Jan 10 '12 at 10:43

The solution of my problem was that I uninstalled and reinstalled Google Chrome from the newest original installation file from the Chrome homepage
