    not sure, but try putting a DVD disc in the drive when you do it. The ASPI layer is the code which sits between teh drive and the software accessing it, and I think it only gets loaded when tehre's something in the drive.

    Hi, check your aspi layer using the utility aspichk.exe found in the file set aspi4all.zip (I just found it through Google at aspif4all.zip ) and use utility aspi4all.exe (also in the zip file) if you need to reinstall the aspi layer.

    Regards, Phil

    Best thing I found with DVDgenie was to copy the winaspi32.dll into the same directory as what the software was installed and then it worked perfectly. :)
