Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

THE sony dvd rw awg540a IS NOT RECOGNIZE FOR FEDORA LINUX


DVD drives are generic. They do not require specific drivers. Fedora includes a DVD driver built-in. If the drive does not work, it is because of a hardware problem.

On acer aspire 5520g the dvd rw spins the dvd but bio's says its unplugged and it won't read the dvd's


Try downloading a driver from the net, Or install DVD software such as Roxio or Sonic Cine Player. Does it show in hardware as a CD Rom or DVD/RW ? If it shows as a CD the driver is the problem.
