Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

This sounds like a driver problem. First, go to Device Manager, Expand the CD/DVD to get your make and model. Right click on your model and click Troubleshooting. Just follow the instructions, it will walk you through some troubleshooting steps. Also, while you are there you can click on update driver see if there is a new one. Finally, as a last resort you can uninstall then reinstall your driver. Hope this helps, let me know how it turns out.

Not reading DVD discs


Hello,

has it been reading DVD discs before? Also, does it read other discs apart from DVD's?

It is possible that your DVD drive's lens (laser) is weak. You can try to use a lens cleaner or cutton board to clean the lens.

Take care.

Acer aspire 9300 dvd reads but does'nt write


Probably check it well if it is a DVD read and write ROM if its the DVD read and write then try to check on another disc if that disc you want to write on is bad and if that persist then may be the lens of the DVD is weak to write on CD then you will have to look for a replacement ok

DVD DOES NOT PLAY, BRAND NEW FROM BEST BUY ACER EXTENSA LAPTOP EX5230E-2177 WILL NOT BURN A DVD OR PLAY A MOVIE


first make sure that the drive is installed properly. I would advise you to install it from the manufacturer's site. Let me know if you need the installation files.

Also, it can help if you can let me know if it reads any other discs- like regular discs. Try several different types- burned cd and dvd discs, brand new discs, original discs etc.
If installing it doesn't help and the drive will not read any kinds of discs, you will have to return the laptop to the store where you bought it, or try to return it to the manufacturer, maybe they can replace the drive.

My dvd rive is not reading a dvd cd is working properly. what should be done? very rarely it reads the acer driver dvd


If its only having trouble with one disc , then the disc is probably dirty or the data on it is corrup

If it has trouble with many discs or all discs , then the drive is failing and will have to be replaced. As its a laptop , it would probably be cheaper buying an external USB dvd reader/burner than buying a replacement internal one as laptop parts are expensive and not readily available

If this has been of any use to you , please rate my solution below

Kind Regards

Acer aspire 5715z dvd drivers


If you have recovery in my computer or in c:\ drive where a folder should be ACER you will have an option to reinstall applications or drivers

Another option
depending on how they got deleted you might be able to go to add new in control panel then once you click yes already installed a box will appear and scroll to see if you see the driver highlight then next and follow instruction
when option appears for automatically install click yes
HOW DID THE DRIVER GET DELETED
let me know if this helped
