The file "xxx" is stored on a disc named [something cryptic]. Please insert this disc.

If you see this message, chances are you're inserting clip art into a PowerPoint presentation or other document. Or trying to, at any rate.

It may ask for a disc called O9PRMCD02 or O9PROCD02, meaning that it wants CD2 from your Office 2000 Premium or Office 2000 Pro install set respectively.

MSKB article Q235848 has the full scoop on this, but the short story is that not all the clip art is installed on your hard drive by default. Most of it's left on the install CDs to save space. When you choose one of these not-installed bits of clip art, Office asks for the appropriate CD (although in very cryptic fashion). Here are the human readable equivalent names so you can sort out what it's asking you for:


 CD                      VolumeName
 =================================== 
 Premium (CD1)           O9PRMCD1
 Premium (CD2)           O9PRMCD2 
 Photodraw Disc 1 (CD3)  PD001CD1 
 PhotoDraw Disc 2 (CD4)  PD001CD2 
 LPK (CD1-8)             O9LPKCD1-8 
 Office Res. Kit         O9ORK 
 Pro (CD1)               O9PROCD01
 Pro (CD2)               O9PROCD02
 Standard                MSOFFS9 
 SBE                     MSOFFSBE9 
 Access                  MSACCESS9 
 Excel                   MSEXCEL9 
 FrontPage               MSFP9 
 Outlook                 MSOUTLK9 
 PowerPoint              MSPPT9
 Publisher               O9PB or 09PBDCD2
 Word                    MSWORD9
 PIPC                    MSPIPC9
 MLPK                    MLPK_ 

The Volume Name is the label that appears in Explorer next to the drive icon when you insert the CD or the label that appears under the CD's icon in My Computer. Note that the volume label might be e.g. O9PRMCD01 rather than O9PRMCD1.
