Slimtype dvd a ds8a1p ata device driver download


Hi,

You may already have the driver on your laptop. Follow the following instructions to install them:
To solve the issue, you have to edit the windows registry
Click Start, then Run, type REGEDT32 and click OK.
Locate and then remove the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}LowerFilters

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}UpperFilters


Close Registry Editor.
Reboot the system for the changes to take effect.

Hope this solves your problem.

Slimtype DVD a Ds8a1p Ata Device Driver NOT FOUND IN MY NOTE BOOK AND NOT HAVING DRIVER IN CD


Go into your BIOS and see if the drive is recognized in there. If its not, then you'll need to turn off the laptop. Take out the drive from the system and then put the drive back into the system. Now go back into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there. If it is still not recognized then the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

If the drive is recognized then go into windows into the device manager and see if the drive is there. If its not recognized properly then that means you might either have spyware or a virus on the computer. You can also try replacing the drive as well to make sure its not a drive problem.

Newer BR disks are in an different format. If you can't view them then either you need a new BR unit or you need to upgrade the firmware of the one you have - if this is possible.

Acer Slimtype DS8A1P DVD burner firmware


hmmm..who's NTI?

if you go to control panel, and look under system, you'll see under the DVD, the actual number of the drive. Use that in google, and add the word 'driver' afterwards, and you may have more success.

got backup for your Acer?

First try downloading the optical drive firmware update and installing it, then try updating your BIOS the same way. Often, this problem is resolved by restoring the operating system as well.
