DVD cd player not working

Hi I have a Acer aspire 9423 SWi running Windows vista, My Dvd cd (Phillips DVD-RAM SDVD 8821) player has now stopped working, not sure why, but it will start up but it will not play, I have the latest drivers for the player, and in the device manager it has an yellow exclamation mark. When I try and load the drivers etc., it is giving me a error code as 10, cannot load the drivers. The player was working two weeks before Christmas, and I have tried systems restore but to no avail. can any one help me.

Acer Aspire 5520 dvd player does not work in Windows Vista


The only solution is go into acer's driver download site and find out if your make and model supports Vista, if yes! the DVD driver should be available, if not that will be a problem.

Acer Aspire 4520 Notebook Technical Specifications:


Operating System Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium Processor AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-57 (512KB L2 cache, 1.9GHz) Chipset NVIDIA nForce 610M Memory 1GB (1GB installed in one of two memory slots) DDR2 667 SDRAM User upgradeable up to 4GB (one 2GB memory card in each slot)* subject to availability of 2GB cards
*If upgrading after initial purchase, one or more of the memory cards provided with the system may have to be replaced with optional larger memory cards in order to achieve the maximum capacity.
Storage 120GB* hard disk drive Integrated variable-speed Super-Multi drive (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM):
-Read - 24X CD-ROM, 24X CD-R, 24X CD-RW, 8X DVD-ROM, 8X DVD-R, 8X DVD+R, 6X DVD-ROM DL (double-layer), 6X DVD-R DL (double-layer), 6X DVD+R DL (double-layer), 6X DVD-RW, 6X DVD+RW, 5X DVD-RAM
-Write - 24X CD-R, 10X CD-RW, 8X DVD-R, 8X DVD+R, 4X DVD-R DL (double-layer), 4X DVD+R DL (double-layer), 6X DVD-RW, 8X DVD+RW, 5X DVD-RAM
5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

HP Compaq notebook with a philips dvd-ram won't read


If you can see the CD Drive icon in My computer, it shows that at least Windows recognises the drive. If you are unable to see the drive listed in explorer (not the cd name but the actual drive icon), then please post a reply.

Other than that, you are describing what I think may be a faulty drive. If you open the case, check to see if the drive cable is in good contact with the connector and motherboard.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

Cd/dvd driver


Hi

cd/dvd drive doesn't require drivers at all, the drivers come with windows and if you are missing or corrupt drivers on the cd / dvd drive then

try this:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r548399-fix_non_working_cd_dvd_shows_in_device


if that doesn't solve the problem then use the windows cd to install windows to the computer again and start over or use the restore cds to restore the computer.

Cd dvd writer not working


Try to reload the operating system using disk/Alt+F10 first and try to burn again.
If this is still not working. it probably your dvd rom is bad.
