I'm trying to install SPTDinst-v125-x86.exe but whenever I run it I get a message saying

Useage: sptd action
Installs/uninstalls SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD) Layer
Action must be 'add' or 'remove'.

It's suppose to install sptd.sys onto my computer, how can I get pass this message.

What on earth IS that file anyway?

I'd check it on JottiScan http://virusscan.jotti.org/ before installing it to make sure you're not installing a bad-news product. I can find NOTHING in English about this file doing a google search and only two in a type of Cyrillic which makes me very suspicious. Contrast this with blbeta.exe which produces 19 pages of sites that mention this program or stng260.exe which produces 42 pages site links.

If it comes out clean:
Have you tried installing it through Add/Remove programs?

Go to control panel then add remove programs then add program from disc. Select the correct disc or drive in question and insert the disc to begin installation.

Daemon tools is reported on some websites as being bundled with adware. Lots of sites reporting problems with the driver you are attempting to install. This site, Bleeping Computer makes mention of that, also. SiteAdvisor marks Daemon Tool sites in Google with a big red X.
