Since on a laptop the laser lens is right in the open with the drive open, it's easy to get it dirty. Try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and see if discs read.

It's also possible you have a bad drive. Like any other electronic device, it is possible for a drive to "just quit working" properly. The problem with laptop drives is that they aren't all alike, so you can't just pick up and install a generic replacement like you could on a desktop machine. The easiest solution to a bad internal drive is to get a USB external drive, which has the benefit that you can use it on other computers as well.

Hope this helps!

Dvd rom not working wont read cd or dvd says no disc operating system was changed from vista to xp


Hello,

This happens sometimes when you go back to an older os. Go to Acer support page, enter your model info and reload the drivers for your model notebook. NOTE: Select XP os instead of VISTA. If you select the wrong one it should still work but error on the side of caution.

Good luck and post your results.

Can you suggest which OS you are using?
Does this problem exist for all the CDs/DVDs?
Try to insert bootable CD and try boot from it and check if it works.
You can try blank cd and just write it using NERO and check.

It looks like there's a 500GB drive out there for it, so I'm going to guess you can at least go to 500.

Take a look at this. They guarantee 100% compatibility it seems:

Sudden problem with DVD drive in Acer Aspire 4520. CD/DVD player not detected.


Will the Notebook boot from the CD/DVD with a system disk installed? Have a check first, if not:
Ensure your CD/DVD tray is empty and re boot your Notebook. If you still get the problem, I suspect the driver has corrupted. Go online to the Acer web site and download an updated driver. Follow their instructions to re install it and that should be that. If you still have a problem, maybe the drive itself has failed.

Hope that helps

My cd dvd drive does not work it is corrupted


Since I can't determine what specific type of DVD Drive you have based on laptop model, here is a website that will give you a few choices of generic drive drivers that should solve your problem. Download the drivers, install and reboot before you let windows install the device. Let the install happen after reboot.

No boot disc


Yes bunnydawg could be indeed correct. Although also make sure you don't have a flash drive, external hard drive, or any CD/DVD left in the drive first. As they could try to boot from the device and fail (because they are not setup and formatted as bootable) and it will report the very same message.
