CD writer quit working

I was burning CDs on my Acer 5000 laptop, the CD burner quit working. It also will not read now. Is it repairable? The troubleshooter on the system indicates all is well. How do I know if it is a circuit problem or the laser itself burned out?

I have the acer 5517, i would like to make a copy of a cd i have, how is this done? also how to you make a copy of a dvd?


You'd first of all have to make sure the optical drive actuallly is a CD and/or DVD writer. There are optical drives that only read, for example. If it is a 'writer' you can use the utilities that came with your Acer to burn CDs and/or DVDs. If you can't find them, there are free DVD copy utilities, sometimes called CD or DVD burn programs you can download from the Internet, for example. Make sure you download from a reputable site, like cnet.com.

All of a sudden My Aspire 5520 will not burn CDS. It says that the burning is complete and goes through the process, but there is no music on the CD after its done? Please email me If it helps any I have...


Could just be a bad burner. Try reading other cd's that have something on them. Try using an external burner to see if it's a software or hardware issue.

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".

DVD burn


Chances are that your laptop has a CD burner and a DVD rom which only reads DVD's but will burn regular CDs

Hope this helps
