The reader must be misaligned. You need to replace your DVD reader.

Acer Athlon x2 Cd drive won't recognize CD


If the PC will not recognise any CD, re boot the PC with your Windows system CD/DVD in the tray. If it reads the disk, the DVD unit is OK, you probably have a conflict somewhere in the drivers.
Go to Control panel, Device manager, double click on DVD/CD-ROM drive, select the DVD drive, doulbe click and from the menu select Driver. Select Uninstall driver and reboot your PC.
When it boots the PC will look for a new driver and place it where there is no conflict.
Hope that helps.

My Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop is not reading any disks put into its CD drive. The Disk icon is not even appearing.


First question: What are the circumstances that led to this issue? Has the Acer Aspire ever read any disks in its cd drive? What happened before this occurred? What are the sounds/beeps you hear when the cd is inserted into the disk drive?

If you can go into the device manager (click on My Computer--Properties----Device Manager---go to the cd/dvdrom drive. What do you see? ex. if there is a red x, that mea your laptop is not recognizing the device...) Let me know when you have examined all the questions above, so I can help you solve this issue.

Cd/dvd rom


It may be really dirty or just to old or has had laser failure.

There cheap these days, and CD drive with DVD Rom reading ability are like $20 to $30 depending on speed and brand.

A DVD/CD RW writer reader are also getting cheaper, around $60 and up usually.

And some advice. Dont by HP Pavilions. I've worked on alot and i find they have outdated parts cuz there remanufactured from older computers and you have a hard time upgrading due to hard to find drivers
