“There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive D:”

Solution: Apparently, for Windows 7 anyway, there was no option during installation to prevent PowerDVD from setting the Windows Autoplay hardware associations, despite providing a file format associations page. The Windows Autoplay associations deal with hardware rather than software and seems to be automatically set by Windows (you might notice the Autoplay pop-up whenever you put in a new disc of USB with media files on it). To prevent the error from happening, you must disable Windows Autoplay for any devices that were set to call PowerDVD, in this case for the Blu-rays (or any other media).

For Windows 7:
1. Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay
2. Under the Media pane, for every media option that lists “Play {media} using PowerDVD 17” change it to “Take no action”.
3. Click Save.

Change Windows 7 Autoplay settings to fix PowerDVD 17 error

Now when you eject a Blu-ray disc through PowerDVD, it won’t give the error message.

If you’re still getting the error message, it might be due to something else. Good luck!

Before: Auto Warp Distortion

After: Adjusted in Photoshop CS2

After: Adjusted in Photoshop CS2

So I had to use a combination of Spherize and Warp tools in Photoshop CS2 to get it looking somewhat like me. I know I’m not that pudgy. The ideal is to match how your eyes see yourself in the mirror.

I know after tinkering with it in Photoshop, it made my forehead longer, but it looks closer to reality at least.

You may have noticed that with the latest version of Firefox, version 22, that it automatically scales web pages to fit as much of the browser as possible. This is due to Mozilla implementing support for native dpi, but sometimes it’s not desireable. To change it back to “normal”: (more…)
