i'm not sure how to find out.
but i've got a aspi checker from adaptec "aspi installation verification".
this tool says:
component version size
aspi32.sys not installed 0 bytes
wowpost.exe not installed 0 bytes
winaspi.dll not installed 0 bytes
wnaspi32.dll not installed 0 bytes
error: aspi not properly installed!
is this of any help for you?
i've got this file: http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/driverdetail.html?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=/Product/ASPI-4.70&filekey=aspi_v471.exe
how can i find out if it's the right one for my system?
i've performed an adittional test:
i've tried to burn my files with linux (suse8.1) on the same hardware. it didn't work either.
do you think, it's time for a new drive or do you think i should install the aspi driver?
