Acer elock problem

I' having the same problem posted by lisar249 on sept 6. There is always a pup up telling me that "optical devise is locked - Acer elock activate" I cant use my DVD/CD.
I tried to solve the problem running services.msc as recommended but, there is not application known as "elock service " on the list of programs displayed by services.mcs, so I have no alternative to disable. It give the impression there is no application known as "elock" running.
I have an old Acer Aspire 3620 with the original programs. If there something else to try???
thanks.

Acer e lock


Yeah, I was having the same problem. Emulated optical drives are locked too. So I just went ahead to add remove programs and removed Acer Elock Management. It's useless anyways, never used it in my life. My Drives work fine now! So to everyone having this problem: REMOVE ACER ELOCK MANAGEMENT and your drives will get unlocked!
I hope it wld solve...If not buzz me........ Thanks.

Acer optical drive device locked


without knowing which version of the program you got I can suggest for you to:

press start
select run

or

hold down windowskey and press r

type in services.msc

find the elock service, right click properties, disable the service, and stop the service.

you may need to set a new drive letter for the optical drives
(right click my computer - manage - left side disk management - find drives without letters, right click assing or change drive letter)

if you can't uninstall the program? its asking for a password? Its extremely easy to reset the password but would need to know what version of the software your running.

I cannot copy onto the disc drive. It keeps coming up with error message Optical drive device Locked. Can someone please help


I will bet anything the computer you have is an Acer Laptop.

Try this:
1. Go to www.driverstock.com and download from the site 'elock'.
2. Install and run the program.
3. It will ask you for a password, type one in. (any - just write what you wrote down)
4. Then click on the items and lock them. (Yes I said lock them)
5. Then click on site you want to unlock and enter the password again.
6. All the sites that acer elock had locked will be unlock.

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I have a working workaround solution to this problem - save yourself 100usd (what acer requests from the unlocking) and press the ask me button to send me the free(FREE POST TO FORUM) request, Il give you the workaround, will take less than 10 minutes to solve the problem, really not worth it to pay 100usd for something this silly.

Il possibly soon make a video tutorial on how its done but for now, send me a request and il tell you how to get rid of the problem.
