Acer Travel mate 3240 dvd reader/writer

I have this strange difficulty of analyzing which one is the problem.

My classmates burnt CD/DVDs is not detected in my reader but could be read in my cousin's laptop.

There is also a CD/DVD that became noisy whenever I insert it to the driver.

What's the problem? DVD or CD.

My dvd player on recognizes original dvds but wont read any burnt dvds...WHY???


most of the laptop dvd drives have slower reading speed(about 2x) and writing speed(about 24x) compare to desktop pc's(about 8x and 52x respectively).
ur problem might have occured if the writing speed by which the cd was burnt might not be compatible with ur dvd player.
try playing dvds which were burnt using laptop dvd writers.
also try changing the modes in which the dvds are burnt.

I have the acer 5517, i would like to make a copy of a cd i have, how is this done? also how to you make a copy of a dvd?


You'd first of all have to make sure the optical drive actuallly is a CD and/or DVD writer. There are optical drives that only read, for example. If it is a 'writer' you can use the utilities that came with your Acer to burn CDs and/or DVDs. If you can't find them, there are free DVD copy utilities, sometimes called CD or DVD burn programs you can download from the Internet, for example. Make sure you download from a reputable site, like cnet.com.

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.
