Hi, There is nothing wrong with your CD/DVD drive.

Your Registry is corrupt. Now you are missing the Upper or Lower filters(or both) on your CD/DVD drive.

Try System Restore and here's a Microsoft article on the subject.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Acer harddrive working also in other Acer notebooks?


You can physically install the drive in any laptop with the same type. They will either be SATA or IDE. However unless you have a nearly identical system which is unlikely after a few months of buying it the windows installation is not likely to work.

The better solution would be to stop in at your local computer store and purchase a 2.5" drive caddy and install the HDD into the caddy. That caddy will then work as an external HDD on any computer you purchase allowing you not only to access the files on it but also to backup any new data.

Ive lost the cd drive


Hi,

Kindly follow the following steps..

1. Go to Device manager. Click on the + sign beside IDE drives. Right click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Restart the computer. It should get installed automatically as it is a generic driver.

2. Go to run > type regedit > go to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
Select the folder that says ( 4D36E965.....
on the right hand side delete the file that says "Upper filters" and "Lower filters"

3. Go to device manager > clock on the + sign beside IDE ATA ATAPI Controllers > right click on Secondary IDE channel and secect uninstall. Do the same with Primary IDE channel. Restart the computer.

4. Reseat the dvd drive.

Hops this helps..
Regards,
Anup

Acer 5100 lost dvd/cd drive


Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
