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
Look at your dpr file. Is there any unit refering to drive a: ?

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.

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).

When I insert a diskette (no importance whatsoever what is on it) the compiler runs!
