This topic has been addressed in a few other posts. You do need Aspi installed in XP, and if you are having trouble using third party software to burn CDs then try turning off the XP burn software, in some cases it seems to cause conflict. Make sure you have the latest version of the software you are using, and run Cloney to see what protection is on the disc. If it is protected, it may cause errors on the backup..... Hope that helps....
