using GOOGLE to search (since this forum’s search feature ignores ‘common’ words, including ‘import’, ‘audio’, and ‘cd’), I’ve found numerous references to this and similar issues (see below for links to a few of them). So far no solution.
Apparently certain programs (like Nero) mess with the ASPI dll, rendering Nuendo (& Cubase, Wavelab, etc) unable to ‘see’ the drive - the common solution is to download Nero’s winaspi32.dll and place it in the program folder. I think that cured my problem when I was using Nuendo 2. In this case, I can already “see” the drive, just no tracks listed on it, so this is probably not my issue. (I tried copying winaspi32.dd into “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\Nuendo 5”, but it made no apparent difference.)
I have Windows 7 64-bit OS, but am using Nuendo 5’s 32-bit version - could this have anything to do with the problem? Do I need a 64-bit winaspi dll?
and BTW, I’m curious - does the CD-import feature actually work properly for anyone anymore? Seems it gets progressively slower and buggier with each new version. If you’re importing audio cd tracks in Nuendo 5 without hassle, drop a reply here and say so, please? So I don’t get paranoid thinking Steinberg didn’t just ‘phase out’ the feature without telling us…
