  • Be sure to have a compatible CD-ROM drive for CD+G, specified above in PC requirement.

2. In Windows 2000 and XP, an error message "CD-ROM drive not found" comes up even though a CD-ROM drive is installed.

  • Go to "C:/Windows/System32/" directory  and check for a program "wnaspi32.dll".
  • If the file "wnaspi32.dll" exists, then go to "C:/Program Files/Cavs/Encoder MCG/" directory and delete the file with the same name "wnaspi32.dll".
  • If the file "wnaspi32.dll" does not exist in "C:/Windows/System32/", then download "COMPELASPI.EXE" into your PC and double click on it to install.  After the installation is complete, go to "C:/Program Files/Cavs/Encoder MCG/" directory and delete the file "wnaspi32.dll".
  • Restart the program Encoder MCG.
  • Having installed "COMPELASPI.EXE", you must also delete the file "wnaspi32.dll" from each of the PlayCDG, PlayCDG Pro, PlayCDG PE, and JBManager program directories to run the respective programs properly.
  • Having installed "COMPELASPI.EXE", if the program Encoder MCG still gives out the error message "CD-ROM drive not found", then go www.goldenhawk.com/download_body.htm or www.adaptec.com for the latest WINASPI driver.
