Q. Enabling DMA
A. To enable DMA, right click My Computer and select Properties. Then click the Device Manager tab.

Listed under CDROMS you will find your cdrom drives. For each drive, highlight and select Properties, then click the Settings tab, and make sure DMA is enabled.

Q. I have an ATAPI CDROM drive but Rip Wiz 2003 does not detect it
A. To detect an ATAPI CDROM drive it is important that you have installed a BUS MASTER driver for your IDE controller. Open the DEVICE MANAGER and verify the setttings of the IDE controller.

You also need to have DMA enabled (See Enabling DMA) and the ASPI layer installed (see What is ASPI?).

Q. What is ASPI?
A. ASPI (Advanced SCSI Programmer's Interface) is a layer of software from ADAPTEC which manages communication between all kinds of software and your peripheral devices. For CD extraction software (cd ripper) to function well with CD-ROM drives (including SCSI and ATAPI/ IDE CD-ROM drives!), it is important that the ASPI layer be up to date. Download ASPICHK from Adaptec to determine the current installation version and, if they are properly installed.

Q. I run Windows XP/2K/NT and use the ASPI driver but not all of my CD-ROM drives are detected.
A. Make sure that you are using the 4.60 version of the ASPI drivers from ADAPTEC.

Windows MUST contain these reg keys in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASPI32\Parameters]
"ExcludeMiniports"=""
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASPI32]
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001
"Start"=dword:00000002
"Type"=dword:00000001

Download AspiFix.zip and double click the included AspiFix.reg file to add these if you are not experienced editing the registry.

Q. Rip Wiz is not detecting my cdrom drives, what do I do?
A. This is a known issue with Windows 2000 and XP users, especially those with combi drives.

The first thing you should do is make sure you have the correct and upto date drivers installed for your cdroms.

If that does not solve the problem, try updating the ASPI drivers for your computer. This can be done by downloading and installing aspi32.exe from the Rip Wiz 2003 download page.

Q. Rip Wiz is running slow, what can I do?
A. There are 2 possible explanations for this. Both to do with memory availability. Firstly, Rip Wiz requires a minimum 40mb ram, any less and we would be suprised if it ran at all. Secondly, if you are running several applications whilst trying to extract, you will notice Rip Wiz runs slowly as there is less available ram.

Q. When I insert a CD it isn't recognized, what have I done wrong?
A. You haven't actually done anything wrong. To make sure your cd's are recognized, you need to select the cd-drive you wish to extract from in the Settings options.

If you continue to have problems, download the Adaptec ASPI drivers (aspi32.exe) from the Rip Wiz 2003 download page.

Q. Why does Rip Wiz automatically extract tracks to it's folder?
A. The default output folder for Rip Wiz was set to it's folder to save incompatibilities with file paths in differing systems. However, this has now been removed in v2.0 and you are prompted to set a path when you first run Rip Wiz.

Q. What are the 4 check options in the settings options for, and are they
A. The check options in the settings options are not mandatory, they are simply to give you an option of including the Copyright etc information in the MP3/wav file. Leaving them unchecked will not have any effect on the performance.
