    Just to clarify - I have got a new laptop with windows 8 and it requies me to make a recovery disc of the operating system incase it ever crashes or whatever. I went into the recovery program and put in a disc when it asked me. It took about 15 mins to do whatever it was supposed to but then ejected the disc and said unable to complete - error. The disc I used was a dvd+r so I think I may be using the wrong disc. Does anyone know the correct disc to use. Thanks

SOURCE: PC do not recognize DVD drive and do not show it on screen anymor

It is probably a hardware problem but I would go into the BIOS screen which it gives you instructions when your first booting up on how to do this. One inside the bios screen, which is usually blue, find a list of what hardwares are pre programmed in, maybe under drive managment. Almost all computers have different wordings. See if it listed amogst your hardware, if it is, it may be turned off some how, see if you can turn it back on.

Have you looked at this from ACER: http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3410/~/error-code-0x207-shows-during-recovery-dvd-creation I'm sure you already know it seems to be a common problem. Every post seems to point to Media type , can't use RW disk, +or-, seems kink of finicky which seems odd. Only use DVD+R or DVD-R.

Make sure the discs you are using are compatible with your drive. Some drives will burn dvd - r discs but not dvd + r discs. Hope this helps.

First of all, try to put other empty disc(or other disc, which contains data) in your dvd rw. See if it detects your CD. If it detects that means the problem is with your empty disc. If the computer an't detect your disc, go to Control Panel and see if any device has yellow mark. Make sure that drivers for your devices of your computer are installed correctly. If some device has yellow mark, that means you need to install drivers for this device.
If the problem continues, go to http://support.microsoft.com/mats/cd_dvd_drive_problems/en-us
for additional information.

In that case either the disk is an incompatible model (it happens - try another brand) or the dvd laser has died - in that case you must replace the entire dvd-ram unit.

DVD Burner will not burn


Read the front of your drive to see if you have a DVD-R or DVD-RW drive. A DVD-R will copy a DVD to your hard drive, but will not burn it. If you do have a DVD-RW drive, try a different brand of disc or a DVD-R disc, some drive are just temperamental.

Not reading dvd r or rw as writable disk


It sounds like you are having issues with all DVD writable disks. From the specs I was able to find online about your DVD writer, DVD+RW discs may not be compatible with the the drive. Make sure you are using DVD-RW (note the minus instead of +). I think you might need to reinstall your DVD drivers. This should solve the issue.
