This problem on most cases can be solved by unplugging and then replugging the data chords of your cd drive for this you have to unscrew one side of the cabinet of your cpu and then you can see the power cable from the smps and the data chord from the motherboard you must unplug it and clean ay dust present and replug it

My DVD drive can read a CD-ROM and play an audio CD, but it cannot play a DVD


Your computer is missing a DVD decoder software. Simply download and install VLC media player and K-Lite codec. Both are free download. You will find the download link by simply doing a google search.

Acer dvd driver missing acer ferrari 400 dvd uj-845-c


CD/DVD drive drivers are Operating System generic drivers and need not to be installed explicitly. The CD/DVD drive drivers are installed along with the Operating System and can be reinstalled automatically at next restart, if missing.

Check in the Device Manager under the "CD/DVD drive" category if there is any device listed there and having exclamation mark. If there is any exclamation mark visible beside the CD/DVD drive name then right click on it and restart the Computer.

Restarting the Computer will reinstall the CD/DVD drive driver thus causing it to work normally.

No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will reconize cd's


I'll take that as a no,

In fact the default for most types of media is media player but it doesn't include all of the relevant codex's you require for every type of media by default.

Most manufacturers include this software with their computers/DVDROM's but not always.

The reason I assume it is your codex not being installed is simple, you can play CD's, that means the drive works, media player works, sound card works and speakers work. The only common problem that would cause this is a missing or corrupted codex.

try something for me and let me know if it solves the problem.

Install VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Then try to play the DVD using VLC player. If it asks to update itself, let it.

Comment back here once you have tried and let me know how you make out.
