Default Installing a driver

Had a problem with burning CD's. Assumed that it was my software (Adaptec) so I purchased Nero but had the same problem.
Nero showed an error, saying that i needed winaspi driver.
I downloaded it and un-zipped it.
My question is: how do I install it?
Thanks

Default Re: Installing a driver

remember the location of the driver file then go:

Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management

Find Device Manager (Look in the folder view)

Find the hardware you want to install (DVD / CD-ROM Drives)

Right Click the drive you want to install and select Update Driver ...

When the installation starts select the advanced options 'Install from a list or a specfic location ..'

Type your location in and you are sorted

Nero installs it's own winaspi normally. Did you download the winaspi from Nero here at this link NeroASPIen.exe ...

http://www.nero.com/us/ASPI_Driver.html

The wnaspi32.dll goes in the Nero folder but you should already have that one.

Wombat,
I downloaded the driver from the link that you posted. It says "please copy the file WNASPI32.DLL to the folder where Nero is installed."
Excuse my ignorance but could you , in detail, tell me how to do this?
Thanks in advance.

Here you go, right mouse click on WNASPI32.DLL select copy, then go to C:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero and then right mouse click and paste it into the folder.

Restart your computer and this should fix your problem.

Rock:

Why don`t you just download the full update, which is

SP2 proof instead of taking all the hassle of that

Winaspi thing...
