31337-2k2: do you have any virtual cd-rom programs running?
they can screw with your aspi drivers as well (therefore not reading your dvd drive correctly)
Nope, nope and no.
I know, those programs really screw with ASPI.
I've not had any problems whatsoever with the Adaptec ASPI drivers.
Actually, I may have not mentioned this, but my DVD drive did and still does work, but I think right now it only functions as a CD-ROM drive and I dont think it likes reading DVDs. The problem with CDRWIN was that CDRWIN was set to make images with the DVD drive, so since the ATAPI drivers must have been dated (read: old), it was generating the error.
I'm gonna go off to find the latest ATAPI drivers for my DVD drive now.
Thanks winamprocker for teh help.
