DVD_ADDICT: I suspected the winaspi driver as the first culprit and had re-downloaded it from nero's website, but it did not fix the problem.
b.t.w. I downloaded it again from this URL http://ww2.nero.com/nero6/en/WNASPI32.DLL.html, that URL is also listed in Quikee's first post
at the beginning of this thread.
zebadee: Uh thanks for that. Guess what, that FrogASPI driver did fix the problem. Man is there anything you cant do/dont know?
Now heres the funny part, why didnt Nero ASPI driver not work? First it was working before I reinstalled the OS several months ago! This time
however I did not install Nero suite or the BurningRights software. However I had ENABLE'd 'Restrict CD-ROM access to locally logged on user
only' using secpol.msc so that user accounts can also access/burn media on the drives. So I do not think a security policy/setting restriction
caused this problem.
Also another problem is still persists, it has no bearing on usability of the computer if it is not solved, but it might be related to whatever
caused the nero aspi driver thing, so I'd like to see if I can also solve this, only the first virtual cd/dvd drive, created using Alcohol120,
shows up in all burning software, altough I have 2 virtual drives!
Well, again, DVD_ADDICT & zebadee thanks for the help.
