E DRIVE DISAPPEARED FROM LAPTOP (ACER)

MY E DRIVE (DVD RW) DRIVE HAS DISAPPEARED FROM MY ACER LAPTOP (WINDOWS VISTA) - I HAD BEEN BURNING A DVD VIA NERO WHICH BURNED SUCCESSFULLY AND WHEN I TRIED TO BURN A NEW COPY THE E DRIVE HAD DISAPPEARED.

I HAVE TRIED SYSTEM RESTORE TO VARIOUS DATES AND NOTHING RESOLVED.

I HAVE CHECKED VIA CONTROL PANEL IN DEVICE MANAGER AND IT DETAILED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7530A ATA DEVICE
DEV TYPE DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES
MANU STANDARD CD-ROM DRIVES
LOC LOC 0 CHANNEL 1, TARGET O, LUN 0
THE ERROR MESSAGE IT DISPLAYS IS AS FOLLOWS:
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.
WHEN I CLICK FOR SOLUTIONS NOTHING HAPPENS - AND NO SOLUTIONS ARE DISPLAYED.

IN ADDITION, WHEN I CHECK THE DEVICE VIA DEVICE MANAGER - IT DOES SAY DEVICE IS WORKING BUT IT IS NOT DISPLAYED ON MY COMPUTER FOLDER & IS NOT READING ANY DISCS.

HELP!?

Purchase a new (or used) disk-drive that is compatible with your Acer notebook.
Remove the current disk-drive, and set it aside.
Connect this "alternate" disk-drive, and install Windows onto it.
Then, test the CD/DVD drive -- if it still gives problems, then you have a "hardware" problem with the CD/DVD drive, and trying to make any "configuration" changes within Windows will have *NO* effect.

Vista is proprietary, you need to go out and find the correct driver for that CD-RW/DVD-ROM for that Acer PC.

Acer 5520g laptop dvd drive not regonized


If its not in BIOS then sounds like a hardware problem. usually only 2 cables connects to the cdrom, power & ide OR sata. usually these two wouldnt be disconnected so i suspect bad drive.

Hello, i use an acer laptop,i have the philips DVD + RW drive in the laptop.but now for the past few days it has just disappeared,it does not show in my computer but it is still there in computer mana


The device may be disabled or is in conflect with something else. I would recommend to have the drivers uninstalled and reinstalled other wise reformat your hard drive. FFR (Full Format Restoration) don't forget to back up.

EXTENSA 4420 DVD-RW WON'T BURN DVDS


This could be a glitch with your burning software. Try removing and reinstalling it, or using a different software. The other possibility is the drive, occassionally with a CD/DVD combo drive the DVD reader or burner will fail, leaving the CD end working.

Hi How old is this laptop? If it is brand new, then you should be able to send it back to acer. Its the problem with drive or mainboard not with the drivers.

Cd dvd writer not working


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.
