When using a Persits product, an error message reading "The device is not ready" is generated. Examples:
Persits.Upload.1 error ' 800a0005 '
The device is not ready
Persits.PdfManager.1 error ' 800a002e '
Opening Output file failed: The device is not ready
This is almost always caused by using a mapped network drive letter. In Windows, network drive mappings are done
for interactive users, and are usually not accessible to system processes such as ASP scripts. The solution
is to use a UNC mapped drive path.
Instead of this (an example for AspUpload):
Upload.Save "f:\uploads" 'incorrect
Upload.Save "\\server\share\uploads" 'correct
This error can also occur if your script is genuinely using a device that isn't available, such as trying
to access a CD or other removable media, but this situation is rare.
This article applies to AspUpload, AspEmail, AspEncrypt, AspJpeg, and AspPDF.
