The best is to keep the old 4.60 :wink:

I agree with BoSkin. I have a few programs that need an ASPI layer installed, and v4.6 works fine for all. Use ForceASPI.

Maybe the new version might be ok, but I won’t try them until its time to format my PC again… usually every 3 months! Is that a lot? LOL! I might ask this question in a more appropriate column!

You might be right to keep 4.6 just in case there is problems with 4.72.

I format once a week so every 3 months aint a lot

4,72 doesnt work properluy wiht me. i have xp. clony only recognises the 2 virtuial drives and so does ddump. where cani get forceaspi or the 4.60’s?

LOL !! :bigsmile: I thought I was bad! Where do you find the time jellybelly? I remember the good old days when using a windows 98 floppy and typing “A:\format C:”
Now WinXp CD autoruns and makes life easier…

Oh, you can get ForceASPI at: ForceASPI v4.6

What is a forceaspi for ? does everybody have to have it installed? I have win2k and use Nero. Lately I’ve notice Nero is very slow to copy music cd’s, it used to take me 2 to 3 minutes to copy a cd, now it takes 6 to 7 minutes. Can some one tell me if installing the forceaspi will help in performance. Also I do you know What aspi you are using.
