    I had Nero Burning 5.5.7.2 which came with my burner. It initially installed fine and operated flawlessly.

    After my last format, the software begins to open but then hangs on the "Searching for SCSI/IDE drives" screen. I must use the reset button to reboot, as CTRL+ALT+DEL will give me only a BSOD at best.

    I uninstalled it in safe mode.
    Deleted all found registry keys.
    Reinstalled it.
    D/l'ed and installed update nero55107b.exe.

    So far, I have had no luck. Unless I missed it, I didn't see any reference to this problem in the Nero FAQ page. I am running Win98se, IE6+SP1, no AV. I have Norton Systemworks 2002 but it, along with Nero and several items, have given me problems on installation.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi ratchet!:)

    I haven't explored the Norton problem yet. First I want to resolve the Nero Burning problem first.

    I uninstalled Nero again in Safe Mode. I used Reg Cleaner, and have reinstelled first the origina; Nero then the upgrade. It still hangs. It takes about 5 minutes for it to get through the SCSI/IDE check.:confused:

    Have you removed everything from startup to see if some other
    program is causing the delay.

    If my memory serves me you only need load profiler x2 and Systray.

    Hey there pyritechips – download the little Aspi Check program and check your ASPI layer. Nero can get weird if the ASPI is screwed up. The “S” in ASPI stands for SCSI as it is a SCSI type IDE interface. Since it sort of matches your warning it might be a place to start. http://www.cyrus.troy.btinternet.co.uk/downloads.htm

    Is your burner showing up OK in device manager?

    Thx for the response slipe!:)

    My device manager is 100% clean. I have no conflicts or errors anywhere.

    I have the ASPI check d/l and I will post back after I run it- thx again.

    I ran the ASPI check and got this result:

    The main window says: "ASPI is not properly installed. One or more components have been replaced with older versions of the software."

    Question: How does one go about finding and installing the proper software?

    This is an error in the ASPI check software. 4.10.2222 is Windows 98 second edition, not Windows 95

    On the same link with the check program there is a program called Force Aspi which will install a good ASPI.

    I would go to the Nero page and download their ASPI for 9x/ME – it comes with instructions: http://www.nero.com/en/content/c1023694368810.html#c1023694368810

    Also get the Nero Ping program - it also has an aspi check.

    Thx again for the replies slipe!

    I will try those links. What I did do was Google the missing aspienum.vxd file and read some posts atr other sites. On a recommendation I d/l'ed the aspi32.exe and ran it. It imformed me I have no adaptec devices installed on my computer!:confused:

    Adaptec is screwy about their stinking ASPI. They gave the guy who did Force ASPI grief and generally make it as hard to get as they can. The Adaptec version is only good for computers that have Adaptec stuff.

    Not sure whether Nero had to buy them off or have their own version. In any case you are best sticking with their download, although Force ASPI has an aspi that is perfectly good for 98SE.

    back again slipe!

    I used force aspi to backup my old files and load the new ones. Below are the results:

    Before ASPI repair, Nero would take 8 seconds to open, 35 seconds scanning SCSI/IDE devices with the splash screen and 5 seconds scanning without splash screen without the splash screen for a total of 40 seconds.

    Now it takes 10 seconds to open, and the entire scan takes 65 seconds! It's now worse rather than better! :confused:

    Back again.

    I loaded the Nero apsi utility with no improvement. The Nero ping gave the following results:

    My guess is that the ASPI is unrelated to your problems. If you installed it from both Force aspi and the Nero version it is as good as it gets. You might do a search for the files that the aspi check program identifies to make sure you don’t have duplicates.

    You said you uninstalled Nero in safe mode. Did you install it in safe mode as well?

    Ctrl+Alt+Del and end task on everything but explore and systray. Then start Nero.

    I'm beginning to agree with you: There's nothing wrong with my ASPI as far as I can determine.

    I installed both Nero and the upgrade in safe mode. End tasking programs does nothing to affect Nero loading.

    I did some reading online regarding this problem. I see different owners with all manner of OS's, CPU's, burners, mobo's. The only common denominator I see is Nero itself. I have formatted and reinstalled the same Win98 on this same computer and on all previous occasions Nero ran fine until this time.

    Any other suggestions (besides the last resort: format C: )?
