1) .cda files are NOT files. They are stupid little pointers to the track on the audio CD, without the AudioCD they are nothing because they are NOT files

2) Update to Winamp 2.78

3) If you want to rip CDs use CDex

4) If you for some reason insist on doing it with Winamp:

winamp 2.78 and cda to wav

I am having a demanding experience with winamp 2.78. I have downloaded it to my hard drive and when I try to open my cd-rom drive to extract cda files from my cdr-rw disc, I get a message stating that the drive is not ready! I know I must have not configured my winamp system properly, however, I did folow the directions and I am frustrated!

My overal goal is to be able to extract cda files from my cd-rw disc, run them through winamp to make them wav files. Can any kind soul direct me to the proper acts that would enable me to do this?

WINAMP cd READER ERROR!

I keep getting this message when I try to open my cd-rom bay and convert cda files (audio files I have on my cd-rw disc) to wav files.
The message reads:"unable to open device. Probably your system doesn't
suppport Win 32 driver calls". What is this all about? More importantly, what can I do about it? I want to take tracks off my cdr-rw and convert them to wav. Help!

CDex ?

I haver downloarded this program and when I attempt to use it I get a message that says I do not have the proper drivers installed. I follow the link to the Cdex drivers page and they do not have a specific driver for windows 1998, which is my OS. What can I do?

WINAMP CD READER ERROR! message

"UNABLE TO OPEN DEVICE. PROBABLY YOUR SYSTEM DOESN'T SUPPORT WIN32DRIVER CALLS". This is the message I get every time I try to open a cdr-rw file to access a "cda" ( in this case its music files that are burned to a cdr-rw disc) file to run through Winamp to make a wav file out of it. I simply cannot get the winamp 2.78 to open a cdr-rw file. I have read the FAQ and numerous post on the topic to no resolution. What am I doing wrong and most important to me, what do I need to do to corrrect it? I have also taken the advie offer to me to download and use CDex. When I attmept to do that, CDex wil not even give me an oppertunity to open any files, telling me I do not have the proper driver. When I follow a link to download the proper program, I get an icon that asks me what program to use to download it to my computer, giving me multiple choices. Of course, I don't possess any of the programs needed to use to open the driver. I need and would appreciate help on this challenging situation.

First of all, please reply within the thread if the subject matter is the same.
Stop making a new thread each time.
I've merged all your 4 threads into one. They all relate to the same problem.
Cool?

Secondly, please post your full system specs here.
So far, all I can gather is you're using Win98

What is your CPU, RAM, soundcard, etc etc.

Can you play AudioCD's ok in any player?
(eg. Windows CD Player, WMP7, Winamp, other players, etc)


We'll maybe go into CDex later, but you should be contacting them for support, not us.


As for using Winamp....

Did you follow the instructions properly to install the CDreader plugin?
You must disable the default plugin first (rename in_cdda.dll . . . etc)

To load the CD in Winamp, place the CD in the drive & from Winamp's main menu (rt click anywhere in Winamp), select:
Play -> AudioCD : X (where X is the CD drive letter)

Does it play ok?


To rip to WAV

1) Remove the trax from playlist which you don't want to rip to WAV

2) Now, goto CDReader config
(Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> CDreader -> config)

Hi-lite the CD-ROM drive you are using
Click "configure"

If relevant, change the "interface device" from Win32 to ASPI
Make sure the correct drive letter is assigned to the correct CD-ROM device.

If and when everything is properly configured:

3) Prefs -> Plugins -> Output : select "Nullsoft Diskwriter" *
Click "configure" and select an Output Dir where you want the WAV files to be created.

4) Close Prefs

5) Follow the rest of the instructions that NuLoser provided and everything should work ok.

If not, then answer all my questions from above and we'll take things from there.


*Remember to switch back to WaveOut or DirectSound Output plugin when you've finished (for normal playback), so that DiskWriter is no longer the active plugin.

Disabling the default plugin?

How can I disable the defualt plugin? How can I rename it? I cannot find any instructions on how to do this in FAQ or in the instructions of installing the new cd reader plugin. I check out the forums and have not found any instructions to do this. Please be as specific as possible I am trying my best to address this.

1) Close Winamp

2) Goto: Start -> Settings -> Folder Options -> "View" tab
Scroll down, and uncheck "Hide extensions for known filetypes"
Click Okay

3) Via "My Computer", goto your Winamp Plugins folder.
By default, this is usually: C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins
Locate and Right click on "in_cdda.dll"
Select "Rename"
Rename the file to: in_cdda.dll.off
Click okay.
Repeat this for in_cdda.cdb (rename to in_cdda.cdb.off)
Okay everything.


If you've installed the CDReader plugin properly, you should also see a file in this folder called in_cdreader.dll
If not, install it again and make sure it's there.

Now follow everything else we said above.

Good luck.


If the problem persists, answer ALL of our questions from above.
We can't help you any further otherwise.

If the correct ASPI drivers are installed, then there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to rip with CDEX.

Winamp problems continue

I have done all of these things and I am still having the same problem and getting the message "Unable to open device. Probably your system does not support Win32 driver calls". I have disengaged the default cd writter plugins as instructed from the forums but I am still unable to open any cdr music file. I did go to the suggested web site and downloaded wacdr195.exe and I installed it, however, I cannot find it listed in the plugins. Is there a telephone number where I can contact someone and speak to about this problem? It appears that I will not be able to solve this problem.

Winamp problems continue

I am still getting the message that my system doesn't support win32 drive calls. I have uninstaled 2.78 and reinstalled it with the same effects. I must be doing something incorrectly. Can someone please send me a list of configerations I can check against to see if I am doing this right. I can play mp3 through the winamp but not from the cd rom. I am trying to take music files from cdr source and use winamp to convert to wav files. I have been successful in past but for some reason I cannot do it any longer. Please help me.

Look, have you installed the CDReader plugin?
Does in_cdreader.dll exist in the Winamp\Plugins folder on your hard drive?
Is it listed in: Winamp Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Input?
Did you configure the plugin properly like I told you to above?
You need to set the interface to ASPI instead of Win32
You also need to make sure that the correct Device is assigned to the correct drive letter.
Follow my instructions above.

Also, whilst you're in the CDReader config, goto the CDDB tab and UNCHECK "use cddb". You can always enable this setting later. Leave "use local cddb" checkmarked for now.


Please answer all our other questions too:

Can you play AudiCD's on both of your CD drives in all players?
(CDPlayer AND Winamp)
Do the tracks load properly into the Winamp playlist when (from the main winamp menu) you select Play -> AudioCD (on the correct drive letter)?

Could you play AudioCD's okay when Winamp's default CD Input plugin was installed? Or is it only since installing the CDReader replacement that this error message has occurred?

If not, and you still get this weird error message, then you need to goto the
CD-ROM manufacturer's website and download then install the correct and latest drivers for your HP CD-RW 9100 drive.

As for LTN 48x Max . . . sorry, never heard of it.
Who is the manufacturer? Try here or here maybe

You may also need to reinstall your soundcard drivers and DirectX.

Also try uninstalling and reinstalling the Windows CD Player.
You will need your Windows 98 CD-ROM Disk to be in the drive first.

Goto: Add/Remove Programs Control Panel -> Windows Setup tab
Hi-lite "Multimedia" components, and click "Details"
Remove the checkmark next to CDPlayer
Click Okay to everything & reboot if asked to.
Then go back in and recheck "CDPlayer" to reinstall it.
Okay everything & reboot if asked to.

This should hopefully also fix the drivers issue and reinstall the ASPI Layer.
The ASPI layer should be installed by default on all Win98 systems.

Also look in the Multimedia Control Panel -> CD Audio tab
Make sure your drives are set up properly!

Then goto the Devices tab (in Multimedia Control Panel)
Under Media Control Devices, select "CD Audio Device"
Click "Properties"
Make sure "use this device" is checkmarked.

Also check in System Control Panel -> Device Manager that it says both your CD-ROM devices are working properly and no conflicts exist (under "Properties" for both CD-ROM device drives)


If you still get the error message, you may have to download the ASPI drivers from one of those links we gave you above.

However, one other thing from above that I didn't quite understand was:
Quote:
When I follow a link to download the proper program, I get an icon that asks me what program to use to download it to my computer, giving me multiple choices. Of course, I don't possess any of the programs needed to use to open the driver.
What the hell does this mean? Please explain clearly.
Does Internet Explorer actually succeed in downloading the file, but you just get this error when you try to open it afterwards?
Is it a zip file? If so, do you have a zip program installed?
eg. Winzip (shareware) or PowerArchiver 2001 v6.11 (freeware)

Good luck.

Winamp problem response

Look, have you installed the CDReader plugin? YES.

Does in_cdreader.dll exist in the Winamp\Plugins folder on your hard drive?

SORT OF. IN THE HARD DRIVE IT IS in_CDRReader

Is it listed in: Winamp Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Input?
YES. IT IS AS SUCH; CD Reader V1.95 (x86) [IN_CDREADER.DLL]

Did you configure the plugin properly like I told you to above?
YES AND NO. I WAS ABLE TO CHANGE in_cdda>dll TO off, HOWEVER THERE WAS NO FILE NAMED in_cdda.cdb



You need to set the interface to ASPI instead of Win32
You also need to make sure that the correct Device is assigned to the correct drive letter.

HOW IS THIS DONE?


Follow my instructions above.

Also, whilst you're in the CDReader config, goto the CDDB tab and UNCHECK "use cddb". You can always enable this setting later. Leave "use local cddb" checkmarked for now.

I HAVE DONE THIS.

I DO NOT REMEMBER, SORRY.

If not, and you still get this weird error message, then you need to goto the

OH-OH.

I HOPE THIS IS MORE HELPFUL INFORMATION. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE WITH ME DJ EGG.

From my posts above:

goto: CDReader config
(Winamp Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> CDreader -> configure)

Hi-lite the CD-ROM drive
Click "configure"

Change the "Interface" from Win32 to ASPI (c/o drop-down menu)
Make sure the correct CD-ROM drive + letter is assigned to the correct ASPI device (In the ASPI Device box underneath the Interface box)


Also, if you'd have done what I said above:

Goto: Start -> Settings -> Folder Options -> "View" tab
Scroll down, and uncheck "Hide extensions for known filetypes"
Click Okay

You'd now be able to see in_cdreader.dll instead of just in_cdreader in the Winamp\Plugins folder.

You'd also be able to properly disable the default plugin too, because as it stands you've probably just renamed it to something like in_cdda.dll.off.dll
You need to be able to see the extension (.DLL) before you can properly rename a file by changing the extension.
CDReader will NOT work unless you properly disable the default plugin first.


btw, have you tried more than one AudioCD, or does the problem only exist with this one CD that you're trying to rip.
If so, make sure it's clean and not damaged . . . and if it's one of those new enhanced copyright protected CD's, there's a good chance that you won't be able to rip it to WAV or MP3 anyway.

You don't have to type anything in the box. If your CD-ROM and CD burner are both installed correctly, then they should be listed in the drop down box. If they aren't there, than you don't have the ASPI drivers installed correctly - simple as that.

When you go to preferences (CTRL-P) -> plugins -> input -> CD Reader -> configure, what does it say in the "Drives" box??

You should have something like

F:\[ASPI]HP CD-RW 9100

or something similar. Is this what you see????

I'm still convinced that you need to install the ASPI drivers. Follow the instructions in the very first post TO THE LETTER.....

When I go to the CD Reader configuration I get the following:
D\:[ASPI]
E\:[Win32]

No notation to the cd reader after either of these. What does that tell you or what should it tell me?

Winamp troubles continue...

I've done all the things I have been instructed to do and I am still having dificulty, however, it is a different problem this time. When I try to access a cda file from my cd-rom with winamp I get the following message "ASPI failed to init". This is a different message
than "unable to open device. Your system probably doesn't support Win32 driver calls". What do I need to do to get "ASPI to Init"?

Again, you need to install the ASPI drivers, like we told you to!

If you HAD tried everything above, then you would've:

1) Downloaded and installed a Zip Program, eg. Winzip or PowerArchiver (as linked to above). This will then enable you to open the ZIP file which the ASPI drivers come in.

2) Download the ASPI Drivers for Win98. Open the zip file in the zip program and run the setup.exe file within the zip.

If this still doesn't fix it, then you would've gone to those links I provided and got the latest drivers for CD-ROM and soundcard and DirectX, downloaded them and installed them.

If this doesn't fix it, you need to get a qualified computer/hardware technician to examine the pc, or you could just take the pc back to the shop where you bought it . . . and . . . (to be continued)

ASPI Drivers cond't

I went to a drivers page and downloaded Winaspi32 both to my desktop and from a zip file. When I attempted to open the file on desktop I found it would not open. What program opens this file? I have a list of 20+ programs. Same thing when I try to open the zip file, I am asked to chose a program to open the zip file. Which one does this? Which is the key to the highway?

Copy wnaspi32.dll to the WINNT/System32 folder.

I cannot find the WINNT/System32 folder on my hard drive. How can I resolve this situation?

Nope, those are the wrong ASPI drivers.
You need the ones for Win98, not Win2k

The files go in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM

The download on this page is an EXE file, so it should automatically install ASPI for you, but you might get an error about no Adaptec hardware/software being present.

If you get the error, then hang on a mo . . . I'll go look for another download somewhere else . . .

http://www.ping.be/satcp/softwaretools01.htm#ASPI

There's links on that page to both the latest ASPI Layer, as well as an older version. If you get the Adaptec error message when trying to install the newest ASPI, this means you'll have to install the older version first, then install the new version afterwards.

Just to make it clear, here's the links from that very page

ftp://ftp.adaptec.com/software_pc/aspi/aspi32.exe (latest version)
http://support.tekramusa.com/support...E?OpenDocument (older version: if u get Adaptec error message, install this first, then update to new version afterwards)


I can't help you much more than this.
