I tried Alcohol 120%, CDJuggler, and Daemon Tools to save wear and tear on my Philips CD-R/Rw 2400. After the trials of Alcohol and Juggler expired, I uninstalled because they have more features than I need.
I can no longer use digital playback or rip from Windows Media Player 7.01.00.3055 or Real One 2.0 build 188.8.131.523
Real One will sometimes report a bogus error that my ASPI layer is out of date.
My ASPI version is 4.71.2 -- the latest, and I've reistalled.
