Windows 2000 and XP DO NOT NEED ASPI
Yep you’re right, windows 2000 and Xp do not need to have additional aspi installed. But then again i never implied they have to. you should spent some more time reading ones post before going for that post button.
I can’t speak about win2000 since i’ve never used them, but as far as winXP build-in software, all i can say is that i’d personally never trust it (being Roxio and all) for burning my cds.
and installing a needless (AND destructive) ASPI, mostly from Adaptec, THATS WHEN THEY GET INTO TROUBLE AS DESRIBED BY THIS POSTER.
Well for starters, i never said that he had to install anything. I just suggested he should check his aspi layer, something he could have done with aspicheck or whatever. So it all comes down again to the time you spend on reading other ppl posts.
As far as wether adaptec aspi can cauze anly problems or not, you are entitled to your opinion. Again, i never stated he should install any software (force aspi - adaptec) so what more can i say. My personal experience is that people that have adaptec aspi properly installed usually don’t run into any aspi problems - but then again this is my opinion and you don’t have to agree with that.
I have seen people (like you) telling other people thouseands of times to check their ASPI, and dont recall seing more than 2-3 actually coming back saying that it fixed anything, and they would always be on a 9X system.
Now that’s someting based on your own experience …
I myself has burned thousands and thousands of CD’s on many different computers, notebooks and desktops, 6 different Operating systems, and 6 different burners, and god knows how many different burning programs, and I HAVE NEVER HAD AN ASPI PROBLEM.
Good for you
So in the interest of the newbies, stop telling them to install ASPI as your first shot at solving problems, that is what one newbie tells another newbie.
Again, i never told anyone to install any aspi…
Try reading other ppl posts a bit more carefully. Here’s some help:

[EDIT] Actually i don’t really think there’s any disaggreement here (by all means, aspi are not the answer to all problems and can cauze problems in some cases), so i see no reason for this to go on
Have a nice day [/EDIT]
