If you're using Xp, then you'll need aditional software.
If it is just a CD drive, then of course it won't accept.

SOURCE: Cd- rom is not reading DVD movies

It may be that you don't have a DVD Decoder program installed. Look at the disks that came with the computer and see if one of them needs to be installed. The disk should be printed with information as to what is on the disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.com

SOURCE: My CD & DVD ROM drives will not open the door

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Your DVD rom tray may be stuck inside. Try the emergency eject by inserting a paper clip in the small hole at the front.

SOURCE: CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Are you sure it is a DVD writer, the specs for this laptop has a number of different drives one of which is a DVD/CD combi drive meaning it can read and write CD's but only read/plays DVD's.
Check the drive fascia if it says DVD-rom then it only reads them.

My acer aspire 4520 will not play or record dvd's. It opens and I can close it but nothing happens.


Hi there your system does not find any DVD detector software. So you have to install it 1st. Then you can play & record DVD. I suggest you install NERO CD/DVD writer software & after that when you put DVD in your rom its will detect & start work.
Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Playing PC DVD roms problem


Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.

those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
