RE: aspi manager - this must be for me

This is one of those cases I mentioned in prior posts.
go to this link and download the ASPI chk (it is a simple exe that checks your ASPI layer) It should tell you ASPI is not properly installed.
http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.html?filekey=aspichk.exe

Now get this and install
http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.html?filekey=aspi32.exe

It installs theh latest WORKING aspi layer ...DO NOT GET 4.70 and ignore what it says about not for XP, thats not true.

After install , run the check again and it will tell you its properly installed. Run your programs

Re: RE: aspi manager - this must be for me

I tried this and the ASPI check shows ASPI is not properly installed. One or more components have been replaced with older versions of the software.

I then tried to download the other link, disregarding the part about XP but it will not complete download. Shows No qualified Adaptec products have been detected on this system.

I am trying to use Sonic MyDvd (which used to work but doesn't anymore) Getting error Application error: (17235) Unable to detect an ASPI manager.  (Roxio VideoWave Movie Creator still seems to work fine.)

Thanks, Tammy
