Have you try un-plug/re-plug or DVD drive? or try another DVD drive(Same like yours)?

Try update BIOS.

If no luck above then could be the DVD connection of motherboard problem.

    1. Press the F2 key repeatedly as the computer starts.
    2. Locate the page where drives are displayed. This varies between different motherboards. Please reference your User's Guide for specific model information.
    3. Desktop computers: Refer to the Drive Configuration page (or similarly named page), or the Standard CMOS features page to identify all Optical drives that have been detected. BIOS Setup will present a table which matches drive ports (drive connectors on the motherboard) to drives detected at a given port. Example pages are linked. Reference the Product pages for the specific model.
      Notebook computers: Refer to the Main page of the BIOS to identify optical drives that have been detected. BIOS setup matches a Drive Port name to a drive detected at that port. Drive Port names (left side) vary per the following examples:
      > IDE Primary/Master: [HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N-] Left-Bay PATA: PHILLIPS CD-RW/DVD-ROM-(PM) Optical Drive: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7560A -(PM) DVD and CD drive names (right side) will include "CD" or "DVD" in the name.
    4. Inspect and reseat cables. Use proper Electrostatic Discharge procedures.
      1. Turn off computer and unplug power cord.
      2. Disconnect everything except the monitor and keyboard.
      3. Place computer on a stable work area with case cover facing up.
      4. Remove cover.
      5. Find internal drives.
      6. Inspect and reseat any cables to drives not detected. Click here for additional information about drives, motherboard connectors, and drive cables.
        • Check for broken connectors on drive, motherboard, and drive cables.
        • Check for bent or broken pins on drive, motherboard, and drive cables.
        • Check cable orientation.
        • If available, try a different cable. If drive works with new cable, the original cable is probably defective.

Optiarc dvd rw ad-7561a ata device unplugged


Check BIOS for Optical drive. Press F key noted on boot screen to enter. If it's not noted there, you need to check physical connections. Might just need to be re-seated with power disconnected. Re-check BIOS and make sure to save before exiting.

If it is noted in BIOS and Windows still fails to see the drive. Run a thorough virus scan, then boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during startup. Go to Device Manager, and select Show Hidden devices under the View tab. Delete all drives and reboot. Windows should say new hardware found and install.

This should take care of the problem if there is nothing wrong with the drive. Replace or seek professional support is not, and good luck

I have acer aspire 4520 laptop, now the laptop bios did not show any dvd-rw. but when i am not used that laptop two -three days then i show dvdrw detect automaticlly. but then use dvdrw with in one hour...


-it is possible that you the optical drive is loose. That can be resolved by re-seating the drive itself.
-first, shut the laptop down, unplug the AC adapter if it is plugged-in then remove thte battery pack of the laptop.
-you need some small philips head screw driver to unscrew just one screw that holds the optical drive located at the bottom of the laptop. You may need to consult the user's manual of the laptop.

Try a cold boot. Shut down the computer. Remove the battery. Unplug the power cord. Wait at least five minutes. Start up the computer. If still does not work, go to device manager --> CD/DVD drives. Uninstall the Optiarc drive. Go to Actions --> Scan for Hardware Changes, or simply reboot to reinstall the drive.

First, I would try burning at a very slow speed to see if this helps. If it doesn't help and you think the burner is just worn out you can buy a USB burner for about $50
