I have tried to use the following Cdrom Plug-in: ePSXe CDR ASPI core 1.5.2

If I don't try to configure it and let it be it will start just fine with little problem until the it "overloads".

However when I first tried to configure this plug-in I was greeted with this:

*Error loading WNASPI.DLL.

After that I had Obtained WNASPI.DDL.

When I start to proceed with configuring this Cd-rom plug-in again, it now states the following:

*Error in Init aspi (235).

What does this mean and what must I do next to correct this?

Also, can anyone recommend what might be the best plug-ins and plug-in settings for my system?

Here are my Computer System Specs:

Windows XP Home Edition Ver. 2002
Service Pack 3

Compaq Presario

Integrated AC97 based soundcard

you dont need to use the ASPI CDR plugin due to your O/S. what version of epsxe are you using though?

the ePSXe CDR WNT/W2K core 1.5.2 plugin should work. if you really want to the other one though you need to use forceASPI. if you go into the config menu for it there should be a pull-down menu, if your cd/dvd drive is not listed then that could mean forceASPI had not been installed correctly.

edit- i also suggest you enabled subchannel reading from the disc. if nothing seems to work, mount an image of the disc onto a virtual drive and run it off that.

just subchannel reading from the disc should work fine.
