My Acer won't play DVD's or music or anything anymore! help!

Hi, I can't seem to get my Acer Aspire 7003WSMi laptop to play DVD's anymore. My laptop is about two years old and it played fine up until about three weeks ago. At first I thought it just needed cleaning, but I have tried that and it still does not seem to recognise any blank DVD I put in to burn, neither will it accept any movie DVD I put in. It tries to read for about 15 seconds, then just goes silent and will not recognise there is a DVD in there! I am at my wits end and just don't know how to fix this, can anyone help?

    Oh really? That's gonna cause a bit of a problem as I travel and currently I am in Egypt, and their hardware can be a bit.... cheap! I will have to see if I can get a good quality one here, but might take some doing!

    Thanks for your help on that, it's appreciated.

Optical drives are only made to last for 2 years, that's what I was told by HP when I had a HP laptop. It may have died. Trying looking for a replacement on Ebay, or try just Googling it. You can get good deals on the Internet if you shop around.

Aspire 5515 dvd wont play sound


Does the laptop play CDs?
If so then when you start a DVD and before you play the movie, go into the audio setting and configure the speakers for laptop stereo speakers.
If you cannot hear music from the CD then check :-
1. The audio settings, volume not set to minimum and mute is not ticked (enabled)
2. Device manager - sound device is enabled and working, if not re-install the sound driver.

Acer Aspire 5920G wont play dvd, it wont even recognise them!


If it recognises cd but not dvd it means the drive is faulty. There is 2 lasers one for cd and one for dvd. The dvd laser is faulty. It also means that it is not dirty lens because it reads cd's.

You need a new DVD codec. If you have a copy of WinDVD, give it an install. Otherwise, try the free codec on www.divx.com.
