First determine if this is a hardware issue or driver issue by going to the setup at boot and pressing whatever Acer has as a setup entry like F2, Delete, etc. then making sure that the drives are listed and the proper bus enabled. If no DVD drive is listed then a connection is not made. If it is listed then verify that the primary, secondary, IDE, SATA, etc. options are enabled. Some drives only open by right-clicking the drive icon whereas most open with a physical button as well.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive


With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Cd/dvd isnt recognized in windows xp


There are many compatibility issues still with CD/DVD formats and disk drive manufacturer's.
Check the format of the disk (CD-RW, CD+RW, etc...)
Sounds like the drive isn't recognizing the format this disk was written in. Google CD/DVD format types for a better understanding.

Dvd/cd drive isnt recognized


Turn off the laptop completely. There is one screw on the bottom holding it in place. Take out the screw and then take out the drive from the laptop. Put it back into place and make sure it reseats snug into the slot. Press F10 to get into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there, if it is then you know that it was the drive not getting seated properly. If its still not getting recognized then try another knowng good working drive in there.

Also make sure you reset the defaults in the BIOS. if the new drive isnt seen in there then it could be a bad controller on the motherboard and if the machine is under warranty, get the motherboard replaced.

Won't recognize dvds


I think your DVD burner is faulty and requires replacing, as they are very innexpensive to replace as you wili probably know,so don't waste too much time trying to solve it. It isnt the decoder as thats a peice software that comes in certain burning programmes, the laser is able to read cds as the tracks are wider apart than dvd's and are easier to read. The drives dont last as long as they used to because, keeping the price of burners down, like anything else means cutting corners and costs and in burners cases as was the case with PS2's the lasers are cheap and soon fail.
