Welcome to fixya.

I'm hoping that this tips could work with your situation

  • you can auto detect your external cd writer.
  • just follow on screen instruction auto browse for the drivers
  • if not working, please right click My computer and then in drop down menu click properties.
  • and then in system properties click hardware
  • and click device manager, see if there's a yellow question mark in the cd/dvd icons. right click for web updates.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls post back the file name(s) of the drivers/contents of the driver CD/diskette that you have.

Normally, it should still be plug n play, however, certain proprietary software may require updates and hopefully would still be available for downloads.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything

If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

Trying to use Pioneer DVR-XD10 USB 2.0 external DVD/CD writer to install win7 and getting no driver error


this is a usb drive, the computer does not know you have an external drive, cause there is no operating system to be able to read it.

if you need to install a new Windows 7 on your computer, and you don't have an internal CD/DVD reader, i suggest you try to install it from a USB.
refer to these links for more information:

Then, after you install the Windows 7 first, then you will be able to install the Pioneer DVR-XD10 and use it. I don't think you can do it the other way around.

good luck.

Can I purchase an attachment cd player to my acer aspire one?

Netbooks are done without space for DVD drive, so you must purchase external DVD drive.
This should work for you:

It is connected via USB, and I think doesn't need any other source of power.
It's really great solution for people without dvd drives.

I have a acer aspire 4930 laptop. It have a component optiarc dvd rw ad 7560s which is not working. It is unable to read any cd or dvd except only one cd which have collection of few small softwares....

Two ways:
* buy an external CD/DVD reader/writer (with a USB interface),
and ignore the broken "internal" drive;
* take the computer to a qualified technician, to disassemble the laptop, install a replacement "internal" unit, and reassemble.

Trying to install software for Canon Powershot A640 on a Acer Aspire One Netbook. Receive error message "The screen resolution to execute Digital Camera Solution Disk is not sufficient."

Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.

CD Writer not writing/reading

When you open "My Computer" or Windows Explorer, can you see the drive? If you can see the drive then there's no conflict.

If you can't see the drive, then either it's disconnected, disabled, or bad.

If you can see the drive, the try downloading software to remove Malware from your system - quite of such software will shut down your CD drives. Otherwise, replace the drive if it's replacable, or get an external drive.
