Acer aspire 3690, my cd-rom will play movies, audio and some old games can be read but mostly refuses to read most of my game disks now, any ideas??


Try an external DVD drive that you can connect to your USB port. The drive you have in the laptop either has a dirty laser lens, which you can carefully clean with a "Q" and alcohol, or the laser itself may be going out. The drive can be replaced. You mentioned you have a cd-rom. If you can play movies (DVD) it is more likely a DVD drive instead of a cd-rom. CD-ROMs can only read data or music.

My Acer aspire 4720z DVD drive not working, its not reading any DVD / CD's.. what would be the problem and how can i solve this


Step 1 : Check out You have Apple's itunes or Quicktime player installed in your system.I have seen same problem as your's after installing  Apple's itunes or Quicktime player. But it was solve after uninstalling the softwares.

If you don't have  Apple's itunes or Quicktime player install in your Notebook, Try this

Step 2 : 1) click the start menu
2) click on "run"
3) type "regedit" and click ok
4) go to string key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5) delete "upper filters" and "lower filters in the right side window.
6) right click my computer in the start menu.
7) click properties
8) go to the hardware tab
9) click device manager
10) expand the dvd/cdrom drives
11) right click the dvd rom and click uninstall
12) restart computer

and check if it works now.

Step 3 : BIOS upgrade

Go to this link below 
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4720.html
and download the BIOS accroding to your Operating system and check.

Note: I don't recommend the Step 3 as sometimes if BIOS upgrade fails,it might make your Notebook permenently unsuable.

In case you want to try step 3,Consult your manual well before undergoing the Upgradation process.

My aspire DVD drive will not work


I see ..if it reads the cd and dvd-s it is probably good and all you have to do is to reinstall the program that u use to burn disks ..but about the second issue with the sound ..try to reinstall the sound driver ..maybe its corrupt ..also look at the settings in the sound driver to see if it isn't maybe locked on left from balance ..but if you cant figure just reinstall the sound driver too ...
By the way if you was using vista program to burn dvd an cd ...just reinstall the whole machine ..it might just fix all the problems..I suspect that its bug-ed

Acer aspire 4720z DVD drive not working


Hey,

it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

might want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.

Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com

Let me know how that goes,
Thanks,
Ekse
