1.- Put one CD (bootable) on the drive and turn off the computer. Start up and see if the cd works.
2.- See if your drive needs to be bios updated (mostly DVDRW on old computers)
3.- Replace the drive

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks


Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

Acer issue: itunes wont recognize my cd burner


The DVD burner *IS* the CD burner (the same drive does both jobs). Does Windows itself recongize it? (if so, is it able to burn CD's using it?)
