Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Have rebooted and wiped memory. Started over and still have prblem, sometimes it will recognize the cd drive when there is something with a USB in the USB port. Computer states that everything is functioning fine, exept it can not find the CD drive when it is told to. It registers the drive in the Computer Information, don't know what I did. Can anyone help me?
I had the same problem with my PC with a new optical drive and all I had to do with replace the cabling and that fixed my problem. No issues since then. I would suggest to try this if none others have worked.

CD and DVD drives use lasers to read the disc. If the door pops open, Device Manager says everything is fine, and the drive spins, but it can't see a disc sometimes. Either the disc is dirty, the lens is dirty, or the laser is failing. The lasers do burn out a lot. They last about as long as light bulbs.

You can try to delete Upper and Lower Filters in the Registry by going to the registry editor (Sart>Run>Type regedit)
After deleting those and you restart your computer, it should work and detect those by now since system recognizes device, if it doesn't either, there is a problem with your OS, you may try repair or reinstall of OS.
