Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire computer which is about 2 years old. I am trying to burn a video to DVD but the burner refuses to work indeed it does not even register the presence of my blank discs. I am wondering if I am using the wrong type of discs - I have tried DVD R & DVD-R - the machine installed is Described on the casing as DVD R/R, then RW in a box with DVD-RD below it, then Compact disc ReWritable, high speed. Under Properties it is described as " Type ST3200826AS Disc Drives and HL-DT-ST DVDRRW Type GWA-4164B DVD/CD-R. {Properties states that this machine is working properly. Please can you advise whaaat discs I should be using Thank you Roger Hargreaves

How can I find the driver to the DVD-player on a Acer ASPIRE M5800 with a dual-layer DVD burner ?


You shouldn't need a driver it's just generic DVD optical drive. Are you able to read any discs? Is the issue with burning or watching DVD videos?

I have tried to format a DVD,is the ACER ASPIRE 4310 Capable to record and use DVD's?


That's easy; you can't format DVDs on anything. You can format DVD+RAM if you want, but you want to be sure to use UDF filesystem 3.5 or so. DVD+R and DVD-R are already formatted, and you can only write them.

Your Acer's barely up to the job, but it can burn at 8-12x, I should think. Athlon XP 2700 are the low bar for burning at 12x. What matters most of course is whether a DVD burner is installed, and it seems that it is from what you can do so far....

I suspect what's missing here is DVD recording software, which you need to make much use out of a DVD burner and DVD-R blanks. Windows doesn't quite do it itself, though it pretends to be able to format blanks and have a way to burn backups to DVD, nobody should try that unless they want to see what an electronic Judas Chair Simulator feels like (thanks Tycho of Penny-Arcade.com!) If you're on Linux, just pick the tool you like or find a likely recent revision using Freshmeat.net; on Windows, you would use Nero ( http://www.nero.com/enu/store-upgrade-center.html ) which costs around $100, especially if your burner didn't already come with it (usually keyed on the serial number....) There are free options too; just check Freshmeat.net or VersionTracker.com to find out the variety of tools out there and what they're for.

That is, if you want to make DVD-videos out of some video you shot, that's different from just burning DVDs; checking out what's out there and some of the books (perhaps by reading some on the shelves or attending a video user group in your city) might help.

My acer aspire 5710G has a slimtype dvd rdl multi recorder DS8A1GP it ejects blank dvd 2 seconds after putting a blank dvd in saying burn failed at writing speed 2.4 can i fix this problem or do i just...


Is there a chance that you are putting the blank media into the drive upside down?
Or after it ejects, have you tried turning the media over and trying the burn again. Does the same thing happen?

I want to purchase a dvd burner for my aspire 3680


It is unclear to me whether your system will support a DVD burner. This is something that is influenced by the BIOS of a PC.

I found two places where your model is discussed, the first would seem to imply that the 3680 will support it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t264099-acer_aspire_3680_could_not_load_dvd

The 2nd , from: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-3680-2682-Aspire/dp/B000UHXK8C

upgradeable to 2 GB DVD-Combo optical drive CD and DVD-ROM compatibility and lets you burn up to 700 MB of data on CD-R/RWs for easy backups

doesn’t seem to indicate that it can be added.

Look at your manual to see if your machine has a flash BIOS that can be upgraded. If so, it would be wise to go to the Acer website and download the latest BIOS version before you plan on adding a DVD burner.
