I have an Acer X3200 Desktop. Recently I have tried to insert a disc into my disc drive, but the disc drive is not responsive its not detecting that theres a disc inside the motor is not even running. And...


If the CD/DVD drives behaves like this with other discs than the one you used to test it, then this is a typical sign that the motor driver chip on the CD/DVD drive's circuit board has failed. My recommendation is to purchase a new CD/DVD drive.

Disc drive no longer reads discs, when trying to burn error "please insert empty disc" pops every time, regardless of CD inserted.


Assuming you have already tried a cleaning kit, the unit has probably burnt out the laser and will need replaced. Luckily new DVD+R burners can be found for less than $25.

Writer does not want to burn dvd's anymore


That is the optical laser lens that is dirty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others. Often the problem get worse in time.
Try first using a DVD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the DVD drive unit.

Cd writer of my PC sometimes reads the cd or dvd inserted or some times show me the message disk not foun or shows the drive empty,means no data in the cd or dvd.what is the problem?


if its old, its probably that the carbons of the rotator arent working well, so the best thing you could do is change the entire thing, replacing it is more dificult and expensive..
you could also try cleaning the lens.. but my best bet its that it isnt rotating fast enough to read the info on the disks
