today i tried to use my reader and my PC said that it couldn't initialze the ASPI Manager. Then a couple of minutes later, it couldn't recognize mr writer either. I am really confused and don't know what to do. I tried to open up the DEVICE MANAGER, but i got an error message saying that " MMC.EXE IS NOT A VALID WIN32 APPLICATION". If anyone has any advice for this type of problem, then would appreciate it greatly if you would respond to this message. THANKS!!!!!
