This happens also when I run a blank project....
The minute I click "run" I get this msg.
I can put any dsk, in the drv. and it will work...
Looks like A:\ is default for all pr.
Idea???

What happens if you insert a blank disk. What's in your default *.dsk file?

Just out of curiosity, check that the "Start In" directory is not set to A: in Delphi's short-cut (under the Start button).

Have a look under project and environment options at the search path, debug path's etc. for a reference to A:
This happened to me once when I installed a component off a floppy, It added A: to my paths
