5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Apparently most DVD disks are now 16x and the Matshita uj-845d DVD/CD-Rom writes/reads in 8x - is there an update to deal with this or, if not, is there a replacement drive to deal with this for an Acer...


you can purchase dvd's and cds that burn at lower speeds. just go to the manufacturers website to get the information you need to make the correct purchase.

My acer aspire 4520 will not play or record dvd's. It opens and I can close it but nothing happens.


Hi there your system does not find any DVD detector software. So you have to install it 1st. Then you can play & record DVD. I suggest you install NERO CD/DVD writer software & after that when you put DVD in your rom its will detect & start work.
Thanks & waiting for your reply.

What dvd or cd disc do I use to burn pictures and documents from my acer aspire 5315 laptop


Depending on what your computer has for a drive, DVD or CD, makes the difference in the answer. However, you will be safe with either drive using CD-R, CD+W

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Slot-loading DVDRW - Unable to write


Before taking it down, I would suggest you try a cd/dvd lens cleaning cd. You could get one at any big electronics store. Clean the lens and see. If that doesnt work, look at getting the drive replaced. I've seen this before, it has been an indicator that the drive is starting to fail. Good luck.
