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

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
