Hi,
You need the specific firmware driver for the dvd-drive.
Go to My Computer and right click on the disk drive icon, then click properties, then click the Hardware tab. Look in the list for the model type/number and then enter that (exactly) into Google, followed by the word 'driver'.
You should be able to find a link somewhere to download the driver. Once you have downloaded the driver, you may have to unzip it into a folder. Then go to Control Panel, and System, and Device Manager.
Find the disk drive listing and click on it, it will drop down a listing for the generic disk driver that is currently being used. Double click on that and click the Driver tab. Click update driver, and choose the option for letting you find the driver on your machine. Navigate to the folder that you unzipped it to and double click on the driver. Press enter and it will install. Maybe need to reboot.
Good luck Anir

The CD you have is it the full version or only an upgrade version? An upgrade version can not boot from CD Rom you will need a full version and perform a repair install or if you really like a format and full reinstall but thats probably not necessary....cheers from Scott and plz vote

Dvd disc is not working


You likely do not have a DVD-Rom. Check the front of the DVD and be sure that it says DVD-ROM on it. If it does not you may consider contacting Acer to upgrade it.

Saving in DVD format


The DVD format is VOB. In the Windows Movie Maker you can save movies as DV-AVI, but in order to burn them onto a DVD disc you should convert them into VOB files using burning software (for example- Nero).
