After i try to find the registry (which is not available)
Why not give this a try:

  1. Start your computer after SHUTDOWN
  2. After your DESKTOP appear on the screen for about 10 second, QUICKLY INSERT ANY CD/DVD (in my case I insert Glee)
  3. Let the computer run for a while, don't do anything until it settle down
  4. Check at MY COMPUTER whether your cd is detected
  5. I got mine work this way!. Good Luck my friends!

Please try the instructions provided in the third post of this thread.

I am not allowed to copy/paste content from other websites and thus must link you to it in order to comply with the site's terms of service.

However, hopefully that will solve your problem. Otherwise, it will be very, very hard to find a driver for Matshita drives, since Panasonic (which makes the Matshita cd/dvd drives) apparently abandoned all drivers and firmware for drives not currently being manufactured.

Thank you, Please rate if this was helpful.

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.

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.

DVD Writer not functioning properly in XP


Hi there.
While you are in XP go to the device manager, look down the list of devices for the DVD rom, click on the + icon next to the DVD rom, right click on the DVD and uninstall it, restart the PC and let windows re-detect the DVD and install it.
I also suggest that you clean the registry, download Ccleaner from here, install it and clean the system and registry.

ACER ASPIRE 3100...PROBLEM DVD WRITER


Sounds like the driver is missing. Do you have the driver disc, if you do then reinstall it. Have you also reinstalled the program to run cd/dvd ie Nero. You should have all the drivers on a disc that came with laptop. If not, try going to the following site and see if the missing driver is available.

Failing that, you may get it at one of the driver download sites

Try to reload the operating system using disk/Alt+F10 first and try to burn again.
If this is still not working. it probably your dvd rom is bad.
