The first problem can be fixed by changing the system variable FILEDIA.The second problem is not related to the first.  Maybe it is a momentary glitch.  Ctl-Alt-Del to bring up Task Manager.  Kill off AutoCAD.  Restart AutoCAD.  Test.  What happens?Where did you get your copy of AutoCAD 2012?Has the latest service pack been downloaded and installed? What OS are you running?
