Question about Acer (91.42R37.001) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
Have purchased an elderly laptop as above. The CD drive appears bent, CD's at times can be heard rubbing? against the inside, is seen to be not level in it's site. Is it possible to upgrade to a DVD-R & CD-RW drive for this laptop? Or am I just dreaming?
As far as i am aware cd drives in acer laptops are not hot swapable, in other words non replaceable.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
