View Full Version : Portege 3480CT - Mulitmedia Port Replicator DVD drive errors

13.03.2005, 20:25
I have a Toshiba Portege 3480CT with an external Multimedia Port Replicator.
The MPR has a DVD drive but I cannot get the laptop to recognise DVDs.
It can see and read CDs but I get the following error when I try to view a DVD.
'ASPI for Windows not available...
Only 32 bit CD rom drive supported...'
The MPR recognises the drive is there.
Laptop is running Win XP SP2
Have update BIOS update and installed all known Toshiba drivers.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

In my opinion you need ASPI driver. Google a little bit around. Maybe you will find solution for your problem. You can start with this one http://www.ncf.carleton.ca/~aa571/aspi.htm
