Possible Solution to Nero 6 Bug

Postby Locut0s on Fri Aug 22, 2003 5:08 am

I can see that many are suffering from Nero 6's "Drive is in use by another application" bug and I may have a solution, though others have said they fixed it by doing other things so this may have only worked for me. Here's what I did.

1. Uninstall any other system wide ASPI layers you have installed, that is if you have ForceASPI or something else.

2.Download the latest version of adaptecs ASPI at http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.html?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=/Product/ASPI-4.70&filekey=aspi_471a2.exe now if you read the instructions for how to iunstall it on XP it says to use the install.bat file I did this but when I ran the ASPI check utility that came with it, it said that I had files missing so I ran the main install, not meant for XP, also and it installed the other files.

3.Go into Nero and rename the file WNASPI32.dll to WNASPI32.old this is NERO's ASPI manager once you rename it nero seems to use the adaptec ASPI.

This did it for me and Nero 6 has been a real pleasure to use since then, I don't promis anything though. Hope this helps. :)

It is good that this worked out for you, but I wouldn't recommend it as a general solution for everyone.

First, many people have found that Adaptec system ASPI 4.60 as installed by forceASPI is more reliable for them than the newer versions. This isn't always the case, but it is something to keep in mind.

Second, and more importantly, the WNASPI32.dll in the Nero program directory implements a custom ASPI developed by Ahead specifically to work with Nero products. Although Nero will work with Adaptec's system level ASPI, you might eventually run into some other mysterious conflict or failure.

Did you try disabling XP's built-in IMAPI burning service before you tried replacing the ASPI? And did you try uninstalling InCD?

Yes I did try disabling XP IMAPI service but that did not solve the problem. Also I was experiencing the bug before I installed InCD. I'm not surprised that my solution might not be the best idea seeing as so many others have tried different things that worked for them. Lets hope that Ahead fixes this bug soon. :-?

Weird.

All I had to do was start IMAPI service. It was set to start manually.
