CD-ROM will not read CDs in ACER M5630

Hello,
I have an ACER Aspire M5630 with Windows Vista operating System. It contains a CD-Rom R/RW which worked fine until yesterday when I went to install a new game and it is no longer reading CDs. When I placed the game in the CD slot it makes a bit of noise as if it is trying to read it but then the autorun will not come on and when I try to manually install the CD it will tell me that drive D is empty. Please note that I have tried to do this with other CDs and the same thing happens. Thanking you in advance for your help!

Update Acer drivers. I lost 1 USB on my Acer. This resolved the issue. After fixing it change settings to allow automatic updates.

I have acer aspire 4520.I have upgraded to windows xp sp2. The empowering technology does not work.It says " the specified file is not found".I cannot find the empowering technology software...


Acer Aspire 4520 Notebook Technical Specifications:


Operating System Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium Processor AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-57 (512KB L2 cache, 1.9GHz) Chipset NVIDIA nForce 610M Memory 1GB (1GB installed in one of two memory slots) DDR2 667 SDRAM User upgradeable up to 4GB (one 2GB memory card in each slot)* subject to availability of 2GB cards
*If upgrading after initial purchase, one or more of the memory cards provided with the system may have to be replaced with optional larger memory cards in order to achieve the maximum capacity.
Storage 120GB* hard disk drive Integrated variable-speed Super-Multi drive (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM):

5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

The driver for the cd rom is built into windows. If the cd rom is saying all cd loaded are blank then you have a damaged cd room. You will need to buy a cd rom lens cleaner to make sure the lens is clear of dust

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
