First of all, thank you for not giving up on me.

Motherboard: ASUS A7V Socket A (JumperFree PC133/VC133, 200MHz FSB, AGP Pro/4X KT133 AGPset)

Didn't know if you needed what is in the parantheses or not so I thought I would put it just in case.

Yes I was having these problems before I upgraded my firmware. My burner did work with XP before and I never had these problems, but now it doesn't. I will search for drivers for my motherboard also and we will see if we find the same ones.

I have installed the 4in 1 drivers and I am still recieving the same result.

I looked on ASUS's website http://download.asus.com.tw/mb_dl_menu.asp ,and found these downloads for my motherboard. However as you can see they say win9x/ME/NT4/2000, I do not know if 2000 could also mean XP and if they would work. From this site I have downloaded the 4in 1 drivers, the A7V Bios, and Promise Ultra IDE Controller Driver V 1.60, I have not yet installed them because I wanted you to look at them and see if you could find anything else that might be better. I have searched for a good hour and Im going to bed.

if you have Installed the latest 4in 1 there is no need for the ASUS drivers. And this is starting to look like you have got a Hardware Failure !

Hi iwin611 & ashburn
I have just e-mailed you a zip file. It is only 249k. Just unzip it into a folder and follow the instructions and that should cure your problems with the ASPI ! Please let me know on the forum how it goes!!

Hey Laffin, do you think updating my BIOS might help with my troubles? I have the oldest version for this motherboard. If not I am going to buy a new cd rw this week.

A store near me has a great deal on a Samsung cdrw, and Id like your opinion if you think that Samsung are nice or if they are horrible AND which brand is the "best" overall. Also if I do buy this burner or another should I get rid of all updates Ive installed to try and get my Philips to work. I have 2 hard drives and one partitioned into 2, so I have 3 total. I have all my windows stuff on one drive, should I just format it and reinstall windows xp to be safe so I dont have any errors when installing my new burner? Thank you for your help again

Ryan

Hi Again Ryan
I would suggest if you can get a new Bios for your motherboard you Download it and Install it and see if that makes any difference !
As for Samsung I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole I personally think they are one of the worst CRDW's ever made (But that is only my own personal opinion) If you are looking for cheap one I would suggest that you go for the Lite-on or if you want a good high quality one I would go for the Yamaha 3200e 24x10x40 and at the moment they are quite cheap and to get something better than this it would cost quite a lot more! But in the end the Choice is yours !!!
And as for formating your Hard-drive I would test your new Writer with your existing Windows first and if you are still getting problems then I would format it and re-install Windows Xp!
I hope this Helps !!!

Hi Laffin Assassin,
Have (finally) successfully upgraded my PCRW804 to firmware 2.5.
The whole ASPI scenario was driving me crazy, so I decided to try a complete format and reinstallation of Win XP.
Flashed the drive immediately after installation, and using your ASPI fix every thing worked fine.
Thanks for you help,
Albaterra.

add one more to get your fix to the Philip's ASPI problems.

dueseswild@hotmail.com

- updating a pcwr404 drive in a pcwr464 usb model. found 1.5b firmware... presumably the latest?

- is there any "alternate" version(s) that may do more/better performance?

thanks

Can I get a copy of that file as well? I flashed my firmaware ealier today (to try to solve some problems I was having with Easy CD Creator 5.1 Platinum), and now my drive will not READ any disks. It'll WRITE them fine, but not read them! Go figure!

I thought maybe if I try your "miracle" ASPI fix, and update the firmware again, maybe it would fix this. . . I'm not sure.

Thanks!
