HELP!! PLEASE: I am also having severe problems with this ASPI crap... I have windows ME...I never had this problem until I got and installed an external Plextor PX-712UF DVD burner and a firewire port so it would hook up...I get 2 similar error messages: 1. when I reboot the computer, it says this "this software has detected that currently no ASPI layer is active, it may not be installed, installed properly,etc..." or 2. when I try to use my EAC program(which has never had any problems) it gives me this message, "the ASPI interface could not be initialized correctly(error E7H) & the DLLs/EXEs of ASPI don't version check" ---- I have downloaded and redownloaded everything several times, including the dvd burner... I have used this site to download the applicable drivers and used the aspi check and the message that comes up is that I have installed correctly for ME both the wnaspi32.dll and the apix.vxd ---- but still the same errors appear. Please help, I am so frustrated... Is there anything I can do to solve this problem? Thanks for your help! ...(this same message is also posted on another thread, hoping to get a response soon)... Thanks!
