    Same thing. As of today, my dvd/cd drive is not recognized by Windows, even though the drive physically opens, closes and spins just fine. I need this working ASAP! Any help, please email me:

    FYI, this is for an Aspire 5520-5912.

    Many thanks!

My acer aspire 5920 wont play blu rays anymore the driver is there and says its working but it shows only a cd drive on the devices even though it shows the dvd rom in properties


Best first step is to make sure that you have the most current driver from Acer. If you are unsure if it's current just doenload the one that is right for your operating system.
Either way re-install the drive! (YES, even if it said that everything is operating correctly).

All of a sudden My Aspire 5520 will not burn CDS. It says that the burning is complete and goes through the process, but there is no music on the CD after its done? Please email me If it helps any I have...


Could just be a bad burner. Try reading other cd's that have something on them. Try using an external burner to see if it's a software or hardware issue.

Acer Aspire 5520 Vista Cannot Read Disc no matter what


You probably need to swap it out, lasers and spindle motors often go bad.
Get a new drive off ebay (you can even upgrade to lightscribe for like 10$ more at this point): http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=Acer+Aspire+5520+cd+drive
Looks like you need to take the keyboard off and unscrew the screw holding the cd-drive in.

ACER ASPIRE 5520 CD DRIVE NOT WORKING


hi
if you bought it from new it's still under acer's warranty call them for repair or replacement, if not do a system recovery i think you press ALT + F10 as soon as you switch the laptop on restore it to factory settings if that doesn't work your drive is faulty and will need replacing.
