    sounds like you need to install some fresh aspi layers m8, take a look here to grab some for windows..... Here or Here

    Hope that this is of some use to you

    Lonman Bleh!

    Do you have your aspi-layer installed? what burning software do have installed? are you having any other IDE related problems? Do you have your newest motherboard bios flashed in? Does Artec have any signed XP drivers at their website? What motherboard are you using? that's a start.
