I have a performa 6400 that froze on me while working on a zip file.  Once I rebooted the system it asked for me to insert the zip disk.  I did, and it still keeps asking me the same question.  I end up having to click on cancel everytime I start up.  I have it set up for auto startup and to open up a certain application, but it keeps stopping and asking for this file.  What can I do to fix it.  It still recognizes all of my zip disks when I install them, I have no problem with that.  It's just keeps bugging me for this disk that I constantly supply.

Please Help!

Thanks,

i think you just answered your own question. At startup theres SOMETHING on that zip disk that you have set to AUTO startup and when your system finds the zip absent it asks for it to be inserted. This file its opening could be anything. It could be a document, an application, or appleshare looking for that device. Check ALL of your AUTO startup functions and the files they are associated with. At startup try inserting the disk when it asks and see what program/document it launches.

Discard your finder preferences and restart.

I have since removed all of my items from startup (as suggested by weed) and still get this problem.  It does seem like a good solution, but didn't work this time.  

I also tried what becredley suggested, remove the finder preferences.  It seems to have cleared that problem up.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.  

Thanks
