Try this; Goto > DEFAULT PROGRAMS > SET YOUR DEFAULT PROGRAMS > and check the settings for each media application you have on your system.
If you just use Windows Media Player then do this aswell > open windows media player, > TOOLS > OPTIONS and go through the various tabs and check the BURN & RIP options
If They dont work check that the device is installed correctly and is enabled! You can do both of these by going to CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER.
Scroll down the list till you find DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES.
Right click on the Driver and click properties,you will then be able to varify the two.

Purchase a new (or used) disk-drive that is compatible with your Acer notebook.
Remove the current disk-drive, and set it aside.
Connect this "alternate" disk-drive, and install Windows onto it.
Then, test the CD/DVD drive -- if it still gives problems, then you have a "hardware" problem with the CD/DVD drive, and trying to make any "configuration" changes within Windows will have *NO* effect.

was it preinstalled or you installed it yourself ? either way sorry to tell you but drives do give out, and some times the cd-rom and dvd - rom drives the hardest to fix, but you can research http://www.geeks.com/ and find yourself a new one for around 40-50 dollars...

another thing, if you installed this drive yourself, you can pull it out and check the jumper and make sure its either cable select or slave or master, which ever you want to set it up as....

i usally put all my drives in cable select so the computer will select which drives goes first and things are juts alot easier that way....

Your ACER Extensa should have come with a recovery CD. Just boot up to that CD and follow the instructions.

A DVD Rom Drvie will only read DVDs

If its a DVD/RW then remove device and reinstall

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?)
