I've looked at previous posts but am still at a loss. I've installed both the adaptec and forceaspi files and gone through the stated installs and reboots. The DOS lettering states that the aspi has been successfully installed yet when i use the "aspi installation verification" it shows that all four files listed are "not installed". Thus, when i try to run my dvd ripping software, it states that i need to install the aspi mananger. I'm running XP home ed. THanks a million for any assistance.
