I wrote a program long ago to read raw sector data and TOC data from CDs. It does rely on loading ‘wnaspi32.dll’. It’s always worked fine, until now. I just built this new PC and it’s booting from SATA RAID. It does not have a SCSI card like my old system. I have installed Adaptec’s ASPI. Running XP Pro.
When I start the program, it first scans for CD/DVD drives to populate the device list. If the device string does not indicate ‘CD-ROM’ it is not added. I now get nothing in the list. I’ve always had SCSI CD/DVD drives but now I have a LiteOn 1693S. The program works on several systems at my work with IDE drives but most (maybe all) of these also have SCSI cards installed.
Is this problem because I’m booting from SATA or because I do not have a SCSI card installed? Or, could it be something else?
Any help much appreciated.
