    No Disk in Drive

    Your aspi file is f****d probably through getting a ripper from kazaa.

    Go to http://www.clonecd.net/Force-Aspi.htm and download the file.

    Use the killbat to erradicate the naughty aspi file which is stopping you playing DVDs then use the instbat to install the new one.

    ForceASPI 1.7

    ForceASPI is a suite of scripts designed to install the latest Adaptec ASPI layer on your Intel x86 (or compatible) 32bit Windows operating system.

    ForceASPI ignores the system requirements which are imposed by Adaptec's own installer and allows you to install Adaptec ASPI 4.60 (1021) on your PC regardless of your hardware or software configuration.

    The scripts which make up ForceASPI will automatically detect your operating system and install the appropriate files correctly. The following operating systems have been (breifly) tested...
    Windows 98 Second Edition
    Windows ME
    Windows NT 4.0
    Windows 2000
    Why use ForceASPI?

    These are the main reasons I created ForceASPI and why you might want to use it...
    No ASPI Layer in Windows 2000
    Windows 9x and Windows ME ASPI Layer sucks
    Many CD Digital Audio rippers require a working ASPI layer
    Many DVD Rippers require a working ASPI layer
    Most CD-R wirting application require a working ASPI layer
    I have been applying this hack manually on my own systems and decided to automate the process and let everyone benefit
    Plenty of other reasons I cant be bothered to list

    Simply extract the .ZIP file to a directory somewhere. Open a Command Prompt and run the appropriate .BAT file(s) as required.
    Usage and Instructions

    Here is a brief description of what each script does.

    instASPI - Installs the latest, 4.60 (1021), Adaptec ASPI layer on Win9x,
    WinME, WinNT and Win2K. Any existing ASPI Layers will be

    dumpASPI - Creates a backup of your existing ASPI layer, or parts thereof.
    Some Win32 operating systems do not have an ASPI layer, in this
    situation you will create an empty backup.

    restASPI - Restores the ASPI layer backup created with 'dumpASPI'.
    WARNING! If your ASPI backp is empty this will completely erase
    your currently installed ASPI layer.

    killASPI - This will completely remove your currently installed ASPI layer.

    killDUMP - The deletes your dumped ASPI layer.

    I would recommend that you use ForceASPI in the following way...
    Run dumpASPI to backup your current ASPI layer
    Run instASPI to install the new ASPI layer
    Reboot your PC
    Run aspichk to see if everything worked OK
