I think this is the problem
A sad day indeed
The computer has been reformatted recently, and a new drive installed. I went through the setup process for CDRip again but when I start it up, the track list is blank. Clicking Reload does nothing. I've checked cdripcls.ini and made sure the correct number is set in cdrip.ini. There is a valid music and freedb path, and I've tried using my skin and the skin that came with CDRip and nothing works.
Alcohol 120% is installed and the "fake" DVD drive for that is listed in cdripcls.ini, but I'm using the other device number (for the real DVD drive). Is there some kind of incompatibility between CDRip and Alcohol?
but you should have a local copy of the database, and unless it is a CD that came out very very recently it should be on your local database.
Yes, I have a local copy of the database.
I also have just uninstalled Alcohol 120% to no effect other than losing Alcohol 120%.
Now CDRip does not even make cdripcls.ini
BTW, when I did not have a copy of the database, and could not connect to the net, it would still at least show "Track 1", "Track 2", etc...
I swapped out the DVD drive for a CD drive that it used to work with, and it did not create cdripcls.ini still.
CDex finds the drive just fine and is able to read from my local database. What am I doing wrong?
Try register.bat again and verify all the DLLs are in place. Chances are also that something screwed up with the ASPI support -- that is, assuming that the tracks are not even showing in the list.
OK, somebody should stamp "Read the FAQ Read the FAQ Read the FAQ" on my forehead.
At my wit's end, I try the Nero wnaspi32.dll (knowing it couldn't make it work any less ) and it WORKS
That is really weird, because I didn't have to do that before the system was reformatted, and no hardware changed at all. But the Nero wnaspi32.dll works now. *crosses fingers and knocks on wood*
and the grief we get telling people to read the FAQ
