Essentially, my problem is that I want to use CDR Identifier, but it won't run because it reports that my ASPI Layer is old and then it quits. However, all my burn programs (CDRWIN,CloneCD,NERO) work just fine and recognize my TDK VeloCD 24/10/40. I ran ASPICHK and it also reported that the ASPI Layer installation is messed up, missing files, etc. I forced in WNASPI32.DLL and rebooted, this allowed CDR Identifier to run ok, but only after it and the Win98 boot process exclaimed, "Must replace original WNASPI32.DLL", so I backed this out. Other than that last file attempt, all files should be original Win98SE. I also tried to update by running Adaptec's ASPI32.EXE, but this quit since it did not find any Adaptec components/adapters. I'm confused with the whole WINASPI layer update process. I don't want to break working programs, but I want to be able to run CDR Identifier, or something else like it. I think I need to locate the ASPI layer files separately and not as part of an install!? Could there be some confusion with WinMediaPlayer7? O/S is Win98SE. Thanks for your help. :-?
