The Advanced SCSI Programming Interface (ASPI) is an established system of accessing drives (with its origins in 1970s mainframe technology) which today is commonly supported by CD-ROM reading/ripping software. The performance of some software/OS version combinations can be improved by installing the missing (or an alternative) ASPI driver, which is also sometimes called the ASPI 'Layer'.

Windows 2000 and XP come with ASPI pre-installed and software can come with its own version.

There is normally little to gain from changing ASPI unless prompted by a specific problem.
