When you say you can't, does that imply lack of knowledge or a physical handicap. This isn't a joke.

I wanna replace the DVDreader/writer in my Acer Z5600 for a Bluray unit reader/writer can I do this myself because Acerservice in Holland don't wanna do this for me...


Looking at the image of the machine; the DVD drive is a vertically loaded slot.
replacing the DVD reader/writer with a Blue Ray one... not entirely sure if it's possible without advice from the manufacturer (contact them to be 100% sure).
because of the physical dimentions of the screen; the DVD drive will be a laptop dvd drive not a normal desktop one.... so you could hunt online for a slot loaded Blue ray drive for a laptop... but again no guarantee without manufacturers confirmation.
most machines past 2005 have SATA connections inside for the optical drives; but also confirm this before spending money.

Have inserted blank dvd-rw but window still asking to insert blank dvd


Make sure you have a DVD-rw reader or writer. Then try another DVD disc. Some DVR readers/writers can be finnicky about the brand of DVD they will read.

No dvd reader what can i do to solve it


Your machine can support just about any IDE dvd rom or combo. When replacing the cd drive just make sure that the jumper on the back of the new drive matches the jumper setting on the back of the old one (master/slave/cs). The diagram for the jumpers should be on the top of the drive.

My blu-ray player on my acer aspire 6920 isnt reading a blu-raY MOVIE I JUST BOUGT


i`m pressuming you are in the uk ? if so !

Go to acer arcade deluxe
select "Play Movie"
Select "settings"
select "BD settings"
Select "region code"
Select "region B" for the UK

Important Note!:
You can only change your region !!! 5 !!!! times!
that is 5 times!
I am totally stressing this.....5 times!

You may have to do this a second time so your computer locks on to this region code.
If you watch an american blu-ray vid, on the fifth change of the region code your computer locks to this region !FOREVER!
