Acer T690 dvd not recognized

I have recently purchased a t690 in which the dvd drive has vanished from the list of drives. The list now skips the E: drive and lists the card drives. I have tried deleting the driver from the hardware manager and rebooting but it always comes back with the yellow "!" mark

Is this an ide drive? have you look for the jumper, single drive on one ide have no problem, but for two drives, one must be slave and the other a master. configuring your ide connections may fixed the problem.

Computer don't recognize cd burner

You can always try one of those drive cleaner discs, but based on what you said, I'd guess that the drive is probably in need of replacement. If you do go that route, my recommendation is to purchase a DVD/CD combo drive. If you click on the below link, you will get to a page on that lists many of these type of drives. They're relatively inexpensive nowadays. Good luck.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

DVD Drive not being recognized as a DVD drive

That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

My LH20A1p186c Lite on dvd writer will not do anything. A simple swap into my comp with 3 cables and the comp. does not recognize the new hardware. In fact both dvd and old cd player appear tp be one...

Check the Master Slave jumper on the back of the drives. If using 2 drives on 1 cable, make sure one is set to master and the other is set to slave. The jumper positions usually are labeled on the top of the drive as "M" and "S"

If you have them set to the same, both drives won't work.

If the drive is sharing cable with a hard drive, try changing the M/S setting.

Acer Drive d icon in my computer

DMagnus and Guest

when your pc is starting, click on DEL to see BiosSetup. In BOOT SEQUENCE, where you can find FLOPPY, MASTER 1, SLAVE 1, MASTER 2 and SLAVE 2, see in SLAVE 1 if your D DRIVE NAME appears or try to select it clicking in ENTER and changing in a hardware list that will show up. If you don't see your D drive's name there, means that it's not working anymore and needs a new one like that.
Normaly, Acer comes with Philips DVD's (about CD players I don't know) and has as variation only the model (example: Philips DVD-R+RW S8441) , wich is the mark that you need to know and search in BIOS SETUP.

hope this helps to you know what happened ;-)
