Will an external cd burner for ACER Aspire ONE by SIB fit a Gateway notebook

We have a Gateway notebook, and while we are looking for an external CD burner to fit it with, I placed a bid on one for an ACER Aspire ONE by SIB without thinking. Now, I want to know if I win the bid, will it be compatible with our notebook?

Try Acer Europe, they actually have drivers, where the US Site usually refers you to Microsoft or to put your Vista disk in the drive.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire One has Hard drive Password frozen

There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.

I want to replace the dvd drive for acer aspire 5100-3357 with another internal dvd drive but I do't know the type or the model #, all I know is that is a super multi double layer and supports DVD +-...


A better not complicated solution is an external drive.
Like the:
LG GP08LU10 Optical MediaSlim External Super-Multi DVD Drive You might not know it from looking at this DVD drive's sleek, slim exterior, but it's loaded with capabilities. LG's external CD- and DVD-burner looks great, and works in four unique formats. Super-multi read-and-write lets you select your style for maximum performance, while the USB connection means there's no need for an AC adapter.

All of a sudden My Aspire 5520 will not burn CDS. It says that the burning is complete and goes through the process, but there is no music on the CD after its done? Please email me If it helps any I have...


Could just be a bad burner. Try reading other cd's that have something on them. Try using an external burner to see if it's a software or hardware issue.

I just got a usb 2.0 external cd dvd rw burner drive for acer aspire one don't know how to connect has no instructions. Is this just a burner for cd dvd's or can I watch my dvd's with it?


If it's a DVD/CDRW It can play DVD's but not burn them. It can burn CD-R and CD-RW. It should just plug into your USB port. Make sure you have the enhanced USB 2.0 drivers for your operating system. Also you will need power for the external box the drive is mounted in. My external box needs 115 volt power. This hooks to an AC adapter, and then to the external box. You will also need Power DVD or some othe player. Windows media player will play DVD's with out some third party software.

Installing cd/dvd games on acer aspire one a110


Get an external CD/DVD drive (USB) and run the game from that. (It's probable that you are hitting a copyright lock that needs the original disc.)

(if you want a DVD burner, you'll pay extra. Generally, the CD-RW/DVD-ROM drives are fairly cheap now <$50.)

Dvd maker on aspire 3690


Hi Artmovements,

Well first off you need to get Acer to send you the disk... you are entitled by law to have it as it is not pre-installed.

However, I think the point here is not if you have the software, but if you have the right hardware.

You see, all computers can burn CD/DVD IF they have a DVD burner fitted. It sounds to me like you have a CD/DVD Combi-reader fitted which will let you listen to CD/DVD and will also burn CDs....but WILL NOT let you burn a DVD.

I checked the web for specs for your computer and all I could find seemed to back this up.... however if you can tell me what the computer says is fitted that would help.
You can find that info out by either looking in the manual it came with or by looking in your device manager and that will tell you what the CD/DVD is.

let me know ok... but I really do believe that you will find you have a combi unit and not a DVD burner. If so you need to buy one... and may I suggest you look at an external USB one, like the LG Super Multi...its good for price and is a nice fast and well made unit.

Good Luck and I hope this has helped you.
