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
