Acer aspire 3610 the dvd cnt work

Here are some things you can try:

1.- The DVD /-R "standard" is not really a "standard". Not all drives recognize all brands of writable DVD's. Go to your DVD drive manufacturer website and see what brands of writable DVD's he recommends and/or update your firmware. May read only or - DVDs.

2.- Sometimes there might be a software glitch somewhere. Uninstall all your DVD burning software (nero and roxio require special registry tools to be completely removed which can you find on their home pages or on the net), reboot, and reinstall your DVD drive driver. Reboot again and install ONE of burning software program (you can also try putting in a blank dvd before having any burning software installed to see if you get a pop-up window from windows asking what to do next). Some peole claim that there can be conflicts if you use two burning software programs at the same time (like nero roxio).

3.- It could be a hardware hookup problem. This can be the case if your computer is new, you can read normal DVD's, and you have never tried to burn blank dvd's before. Open up your computer box and check the DVD hookups. Do you have more than one CD/DVD drive?. Which is the master/slave?. Does this mach what windows reports?. Are the IDE switches correct?. Unhook the DVD drive and other drives and redo the motherboard-drive connection yourself. Check that all the pins align how they are supposed to, etc. It is always a good idea to have the DVD /-R to be a master drive and to leave the other CD drives on the side while testing. If you feel uncomfortable moving cables around -don't be- search the net for detailed instructions on this till you feel comfortable enough to do it.

4.- Your DVD drive could be broken. Get hold of a friends computer and try to install it there. Does it work?. If it doesn't you should be able to get it replaced by the people who sold it to you.

5.- There might be a serious software or even a motherboard problem. Get a hold of a friends DVD drive that works for him and try to install it in your computer. Can you get it to work?. If you can consider replacing your DVD drive by one similar to your friends. If you can't check and recheck your botherboard settings and try swiching out the IDE cables with your friends. Condider upgrading your motherboard BIOS (this may void your warranty) or even reinstalling windows (backup your data first!).

How to burn dvds

How to burn a DVD-Video Disc with Nero Burning ROM /> /> /> Alright, I know that many of you may say that there are plenty of DVD burning progs out there and that if I do a guide like this I should cover all of them. But I only got Nero and many users are asking me about how to burn a DVD-Video with Nero, so that's why Nero is the one for the guide.
This guide is supposed to be used by people that have created the compressed DVD files using DVD Shrink and now they don't know what to do with them or everyone that wants to see how to create a DVD-Video. Remember that for the DVD Decrypter guide you don't need Nero, as DVD Decrypter can burn the ISO file itself. Anyway before start reading this guide keep in mind that it is for use with DVD Shrink or other program that creates .IFO and .VOB files. Don't use it to burn files or mp3 in your DVD, for this you need to select a DVD-ISO disc.
Of course, Nero Burning ROM is a commercial program and we don't have it available for download. Instead you can get a trial version here.

/> /> First of all I make clear that I use version 6. If you have an older version that supports DVD (I think all the versions after 5.5.x.x) then the process is the same. Please make sure you start Nero Buring ROM I show here and NOT the Nero SmartStart. /> /> The new complication comes up. If you see a Wizard close it (there must be a button down right which says Close Wizard or something). Open the pull-down menu I show and select DVD.
NOTE: If there is no pull-down menu then your version does not support DVD.
/> /> Select DVD-Video (1) from the list. Then just make sure the settings (2) are the same as shown here. Then click on the Label tab. /> /> Here just put the label that you want your DVD to have. (It's the name that you see before your drive's letter every time you go to My Computer). After that click New. /> /> At the left of your screen you see the folders of the DVD we are going to burn. Notice the VIDEO_TS folder is red. Double click to open the VIDEO_TS folder. /> /> At the right of your screen you can see your hard drive. Browse to the folder where you have your DVD files (the files that DVD Shrink created). /> /> Select all the files. I repeat: ALL the files. /> /> Now drag and drop ALL the files you selected at the step before into the VIDEO_TS folder we opened before at your left.
IMPORTANT: People keep asking me that. Yes you put ALL the files DVD Shrink or other program created into the VIDEO_TS folder. The AUDIO_TS folder remains empty.
/> /> This is how Nero should look after all this. Note that the bat at the bottom should be all blue, or with just a little yellow where it finishes. Now click the burn icon that I show with the arrow. /> /> Here select just Write. Put the write speed for your media (for slower media like here, Nero reduces the speed from 4x to 2x, nothing to worry about) and finally click Burn!
Wait for it to finish and you will have a very nice DVD-Video disc!

Blank DVD

Hello again tharasathy, I understand your guestion & my answer is simple. You need software program called Nero Ver.
When you put a DVD into your samsung player Nero will load & ask what you want to do (since it's blank). Nero can do so much, I love it & use it when ever I need to burn a DVD-RW or CD-RW. To copy data, music & video to CD or DVD's.
To download nero for free go to the link listed below. Scroll down till you find Ver. & download it.

By the way tharasathy, I'm glad your windows is finally running so much better & glad I could help. Do you still think it was worth a (green) vote? Fix's go for blue around here.....

If I can be of more service, just ask.
Have a good day!
