    How do I change my CD-RW/DVD-ROM into a CD-RW/DVD-RW(combo)? Can I just download a CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive to burn DVD's?

If you detect that your driver is missing, I'd first open my Control Panel, and open your systems icon.  From there you'll go to the Hardware Tab and find Device Manager.  Inside the Device manager lists all of your computer devices.  Look for one called DVD/CD rom drives and check to see if it has a triangluar explanation mark next to it.  If it does, then you can right click on the cd's name, and choose update driver. When you open that a window will appear asking you a question about finding the driver.  Choose yes this time only, and click next.  Then click install software automatically, and click next.  Windows will look for the most current driver for that file.   The other option is to go to Acer and download the driver from their site and install it.
Hope this helps.

Dvd burner plays dvd's and cd's fine, will burn cd's but will not burn dvd's

Unless you have one of the very latest laptops, your model laptop most likely has a DVD ROM combo drive - which allows you to play DVDs and CDs also burn CDs/
You need to give me the make and model number of your laptop for me to verify if your laptop is capable of burn DVDs.

Downgraded from vista to xp. cant burn cd or dvd but can play both. any help?

This most likely means that when you had vista, you had a cd/dvd burning software, such as roxio creator. When downgrading to xp, like I did, the software will not be available. Also, Vista has a default cd/dvd burning program, while xp does not.

I suggest you download another or the same dvd/cd burning software. A popular burning program name is Nero. There are many free burning softwares for general burning (ie. burning files, songs, documents)

Firmwae upgrade & dvd's don't play on other players

You can download the firmware and burn it to a CD, not a DVD. I don't know what burning software you are using put with Nero you would choose to burn it as an ISO, This is standardized way of burning identical images of CD/DVD. You should be able to then put the burned CD with the updated firmware into the unit and it should automatically update. You can watch the TV screen and see if it prompts you for any info but I do not believe that it will. Good Luck.
