First of all:
What the hell is ASPI? -ASPI is a dll(wnaspi32.dll) that
gets and sends data to drives etc.
It's a dll written for c or c++ so you can't call them in VB.
But you can write a wrapper-dll. The dll and its source are included in the zipfile(click on download article)
For example you can use this dll, to fill a listbox with CD-ROM devices installed on your computer.
It could be used to burn files on cd-r.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
