Can,t load cd or dvd form draw

Can you hear the rom spinning? Is it showing up on my computer? Does the device manager show that it is working fine? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then please reinstall your drivers and restart your notebook.
If the problem still persists, then kindly contact Acer support.

How do I complete a recovery on the Acer 3050? I want to reset the unit to factory default, and I do not have the recovery disks.

you can only do this type of recovery on certain models ,you do know that otherwise you will just have to install via dvd/cd rom etc,only netbooks which have an image on their harddrive can be recovered--good luck!

Acer aspire 3050-1066; had hard drive repaired but they sent no recovery cd with unit when new; now won't boot up

Manufacturers like saving money. They could supply the CD/DVD recoverybut that would cost them almost $1.00. They do however put a recovery partition on the hard drive and include instructions on how to make CDs/DVDs for yourself. Most don't however and the manufacturers have a backup system. If you call them, they will send you the recovery pack you need for about $25.

Hi there,

Try downloading the most current Chipset drivers from Acer:

This sorts out most blank media problems. Also, you could try a dvd/cd lens cleaner.

Hope that helps
