    I cleaned the DVDRW drive with Isopropyl Alcohol and the music CD still played in a stop/start fashion. I tried a full wipe of a blank CD. It seemed to finish ok, but was unreadable after the action. I cleaned again and just managed the quick version. Looks like a dufffffff drive, yes????

    I now need to identify where to buy a new DVDRW drive and equivalent models plus step-by-step instructions on how to change an Acer 2700 dvd drive. I'll get it on the web I guess.



    Before that i will try nd track down a cleaner.



    Thanks

    I have an AVERATEC 6200, still is great Laptop, but the burner (Slimtype dvdrw SOSW-852s does not appear to be working, it sounds like its reading, but then stops. If I keep reinstalling the CD/DVD it might accept and then works. If cleaning doesn't help, where can I purchase the dvdrw SOSW-852s and does it come with installation instructions? I really don't want to replace this laptop.

Hi - I would suggest that buy a cleaner for the drive, and try playing you cd's afterwords. If it still playing up then copy some music from the computer onto a brand new cd and play back. If that still has the same fault then you may need to but a new drive.

I hope that helps you.

Please let me know how you get on.

Regards,

Philip

CD DVD RW NOT BEING SEEN IN MY COMPUTER


Hi,
Sorry I can't offer any help, but then again, even Liteon couldn't help and posted a notice on their website a while back stating that these units were subject to drive failure.

" DVD-RW Drive SOSW-852S
NOTE: This is a system integrator product. Due to compatibility concerns, which may cause drive failure, we are not able to provide any firmware upgrade for this product. For technical support, kindly contact your vendor."

Dvdrw sosw-852s(lite on)


sounds like you're suffering the jungle DVD fever disease, most likely from excess salt air exposure(same thing happens over here on Hawaiian islands). So, just swap out the DVD for another one, and mark your calendar for same drill in another year.

got backup for your computer?

Acer TravelMate Notebook 4502LMi DVDRW SOSW-852S (PRS9) Replacement


My recommendation is to get the exact replacement that Acer recommend. OR a third party equivalent.

In saying that as long as one has a warranty for said device, then really anything else is a moot point.

I think you will find that the Panasonic drive will be more than suitable.
