Iam using ACER Aspire 5542G, with optiarc dvd rw ad 7580s sometime its recognising DVD's which i kept but, sometimes its not. It buffers for a long time when a DVD is Kept and when i click on dvd icon...


If the it's three month old then it is not about any dust collected on the lens, but the dvd drive, acer is giving lot of common problems like this, if you can return it. else do not try to repair claim your warranty. HP, Dell, Toshiba is much better and a little expensive :) anyway good luck

Acer Aspire 5920G wont play dvd, it wont even recognise them!


If it recognises cd but not dvd it means the drive is faulty. There is 2 lasers one for cd and one for dvd. The dvd laser is faulty. It also means that it is not dirty lens because it reads cd's.

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).
