Hi gang, Under hidden devices in Device Manager I spotted ASPI32 with an exclamation mark about a week ago. Didn't know what it went too when I seen it. Now I checked it again and there is no exclamation mark but it's disabled. During this time I tried my XP Pro Recovery disk in each drive and it won't copy the files for a reinstall of windows like normal. These disc's are not scratched (I have two from Manufacturer). I noticed Auto Play is gone from context menu for both drives. These XP Pro disc's always worked before. When I put a disc with data on it a menu would come up and ask if I wanted to chose Music, View Folders, Take No Action and I would choose View Folders. It doesn't do that anymore. This really bothers me because I do need to reinstall windows eventually here. If anyone knows what I should do please let me know. Thanks, Rilla927 P.S- The drives are a Plextor 712A and a NEC 3540A. The NEC was just replaced by a tech in the middle of July.
