Re: Acer 3610 - DVD-ROM Drive

If it doesn't work at all, go to My computer, right click>properties>device manager>hardware, then at the top you will see an icon that says(when you put the mouse over it) scan for new hardware. See it this shows the drive. You can also press F2 or DEL on boot up and highlight 'Standard CMOS Settings' and see if your drive is seen by the bios. You may have an option to press a key to detect all drives, or press enter on the 'secondary' line and see if it is recognised. If all this fails it may be that either the power connection to your drive has become detatched or the drive itself is faulty. Please rate this solution.

My dvd rom is showing up on my computer but it will not reconize dvd=s or cd's

Probably a failed drive. If Windows recognizes the drive, there really is no reason that any media inserted won't be recognized except bad media or bad drive. Probably the laser is gone or misaligned. There is no fix except to replace the drive.

Dvd rom is not recognized

Not all computers detect DVD-ROMs. Look at the label on your laptop drive. If it says it supports DVD-ROMs, than you will be able to use it. If not, consider buying a DVD-ROM drive.

Downloading music tracks to a blank CD using Sony Sonic Stage software

go into the settings for sonicstage and select your dvd drive. that should be it. but you may have to do other things(i have a sony player too, but i have found sonicstage to be a waste of space and time. it is rather a pain. try looking through the manual and seeing if you have any options for the location of the cs drive. if not, then get a usb cd burner and connect it to the laptop. that should work properly.

Dvd/cd-rom not working

From the desktop, right click on My Computer and select Properties. In the System Properties, browse to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

In there, expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives and right click on the appropriate hardware and select Uninstall. Click on OK when prompted.

Reboot the computer. After entering the desktop environment, the computer should start installing the drivers for the DVD/CD-ROM automatically (after startup applications are registered).

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
