1)Dip i side of it to Pure SWAN ALCOHOL or cleaning pure alcohol
2)touch 3 second of cotton bud to tissue (this to ensure excessive alcohol absorbed to tissue)
3) eject your cdrom drive
4) use cotton bud, scroll /rub/ twist the bud onto the shiny lens, be careful not over excessive force over the lenses.
5) rub again with dry bud.

Files on this CD-ROM drive are read only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.


This sounds like that CD is already written on. CDs do not work like a thumb drive or floppy disk.

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help


You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

My dcd is working but cant read file


You must use a writeable DVD to burn files. You need to match your DVD burner to the proper DVD disc. They are not all alike.

.exe files got corrupted


well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall
