WinXp - Office 2003 package

I am getting "The current drive is not valid, the floppy drive door may be open, or the floppy drive may contain the wrong disk...."
I am opening Word docs from 'My Documents' on C:, not from A:.

Why is that, and how to fix?

thx

Perhaps you have your default Documents folder set to the A: drive. Check in Tools/Options, File Locations tab.

Are you opening them by double-clicking or from within Word, going File > Open?  When did this start happening?

I'd recommend giving this a try:
