I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!
it might be a lens problem , if it was working ok before for sometime then its a drive related issue hardware try changing the drive go to ebay find a cheap one like under 60 bucks , also try checking with drive info tools
The region code can only be changed 4 times and it locks on the 4th change. There may be a firmware upgrade that make your DVD region free, but if you make a mistake or install the wrong firmware upgrade then the DVD will be a piece of junk. You will need to Google search for DVD firmware upgrades for your model DVD. The best way to view DVDs from other regions is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. I use a program called DVD-RegionFree from www.dvdidle.com There are possibly other programs available, again Google search for them.
