Reading CD subchannels with ASPI?

P: n/a
I'm trying to read the contents of a cd using VB.Net and would greatly
appreciate a hand with this as I haven't done this sort of app before.

I think i need to utilise aspi and have a pleaxtor scsi cd drive.

I'm ok with the programming, i just need a jump start with aspi (or
similar).

Thanks in advance

Mark

Almost everybody in this newsgroup is using VB6 or lower. While you may
get a stray answer to VB.NET questions here, you should ask them in
newsgroups devoted exclusively to .NET programming. Look for newsgroups
with either the word "dotnet" or "vsnet" in their name.

For the microsoft news server, try these newsgroups...

microsoft.public.dotnet.general
microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb
microsoft.public.vsnet.general

There are some others, but these should get you started.

The following is from a post by Jeff Johnson:

"You have posted this question individually to
multiple groups. This is called Multiposting
and it's BAD. Replies made in one group will
not be visible in the other groups, which
may cause multiple people to respond to your
question with the same answer because they
didn't know someone else had already done it.
This is a waste of time.

If you MUST post your message to multiple
groups, post a single message and select all
the groups (or type their names manually,
separated by commas) in which you want it to
be seen. This is called Crossposting and when
used properly it is GOOD."

Are you sure ?
Academic editions are normally fully functional

Try: Project/Add UserControl

You can get all the functionality you need from including UserControls
in the project, rather than making them into OCXes
