    Hi Guys

    I'm just wondering if any of you guys have used Audiocatalyst 2.1 in the past with Windows XP/2000. When I used to utilise Audiocatalyst 2.1 with Windows 98 SE/Me I could rip tracks from audio CD's just fine in ASPI mode but now since I'm running Windows XP/2000 I find that Audiocatalyst 2.1 has now locked itself into Analog only which enables all tracks to be ripped at a speed of only about 1x.

    People have said that I have to install the new version of ASPI for Windows XP/2000 but I guess that I wanted to come here and confirm this.

    If this is true, could one of you guys post the URL location of where I could go to download it the fix.

    Thanks guys.

    AudioCatalyst 2.1 just doesn't work well under XP. However try the new ASPI drivers, it can't hurt. Get them from here.

    ASPI acess in NT is very different than in the 9x environment.
    AudioCatalyst isnt the best ripper to use nowadays, and it doesnt play well with NT aspi layers.

    Give EAC a go, it features much more error correction options (instead of just 'jitter control') and you can hook most, if not all popular external encoders to it. (LAME, OGG, BladeEnc etc)

    Really, because I downloaded ASPI fix and AudioCatalyst still didn't work for me.

    Did you just simply just install the new ASPI fix and that was it or was there more to it?

    As far as I can remember, all I did was install the ASPI drivers and rebooted my machine .. next time I started Audio Cat I was able to access the ASPI tab.

    Have you tried to reinstall Audio Cat after you installed the ASPI drivers ?

    :cheers:

    hmmmmm

    What about uninstalling the drivers .. then installing them again ... or looking for a different set of ASPI drivers .. (if they exists ?)

    I'll see if I can find the version of ASPI drivers I am running at home tonite and let you know tomorrow.



    :cheers:
