A little more trouble shooting has narrowed down the problem. I figured a computer reboot might be in order as it has been running continuious for at least a week or two. After a fresh reboot, the problem went away. I did not have to have a CD in the DVD drive and RootsMagic 6 functioned properly (no error message).
Because I am highly CDO (that's the same as OCD [obsessive compulstive disordered] but with the letters are in the right order) I wanted to see if I could recreate the problem. Yes, I could.
If I started up Windows Media Player, inserted an audio disk and ran RootsMagic 6, everthing was fine. As soon as I took that CD out of the DVD drive, leaving it empty, I started getting the "There is no disk in drive E." error when trying to edit a person.
Even if I exited the Windows Media Player program, the error message presisted. When I relaunched WMP and inserted a CD, there was no longer the error message. Lather, rinse, repeat...
My computer is a Dell GX620 desktop 3.3 GHz with 4-Gb RAM and running Windows XP pro sp/3 with all current updates. It appears there is some kind of interation between RootsMagic 6 and Windows. Maybe this thread should be moved to the "Bug Reports" forum for a programmer to investigate. In the meantime, I have solved this problem and can get back to work.
Thanks for listening!

RootsMagic, of course! The avatar is my 14-yo grand-daughter. I just have to brag about that cutie!
