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.

My Acer Extensa 5630EZ making noise when i put in a cd or dvd.. can I solve the problem or it has a bigger problem?? Sorry for my english, I'm just learning this language..


This sounds as though the ACER unit is defective, the CD is turning around on a spindle which is either lopsided, or is bent. To save yourself the problem, replace the drive, if this is a new drive, go to ACER's website, request a work order, and send in your drive.

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?)

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
