_Example OKAY: "F:\FILE_Ripper_TQ\TQCdRipCompress\"  This will work.

Trouble shooting

You have to make sure that you have a working aspi layer.

From Bart's page about ASPI.

ASPI stands for Advanced SCSI Programming Interface. Originally developed by Adaptec.
It is a software layer that enables programs to communicate with SCSI (and ATAPI) devices.

Where can I get aspi32 drivers for Windows?

Nero's ASPI driver from Ahead Software.

For Windows NT4, Windows 2000 and Windows XP:
Copy wnaspi32.dll to the %windir%\System32 folder or to your application directory
(no need for reboot).

For Windows 95/98/ME:
Download and read the
readme.txt file.

More info can be found on Nero's download page.
Bart says: "This aspi manager from Nero is great, I can really recommend it"...

from Adaptec:
ASPI Driver for Windows version 4.71.2">Updated ASPI drivers version 4.71.2
for Windows 98, NT 4, Me, 2000 and XP.
The change in 4.72 from earlier versions is that it enables tagged queuing for read/write commands.
