I recently had this problem and just replaced the Combo Drive with one I bought off eBay. However, my drive failed during a cd burn, and could still play dvd's, so I knew that it wasn't clearing the filters in the registry and other options found online.

I have an Acer Aspire 9410-4933 and it had a Sony Optiarc AD7530D EIDE drive, so I bought a new Lightscribe drive for $46.00 including shipping. I just had to take off the bracket from the old drive and put on the new drive. There is only one screw that holds the drive in and it is on the bottom of the case where there are to screws close to the RAM door, and it is the closer of the two screws to the battery. Don't forget the drive will come up against the end of the travel for the tray and not come out; you just need to continue to pull the drive to overcome the resistance of the connector to the motherboard.

Yeah go to the device manager
start > right click on my computer > properties > hardware > device manager > under the cd/dvd drive option and than right click on the drive and uninstall it than go to the option that is ide/atapi and than uninstall the secondary channel and than restart the system that should work out ... if that doesnt work try updating the firmware and if that doesnt work try reinstalling windows that is if u do not have any important data to loose if u do change the drive

How do i replace the dvd/cd drive? acer aspire 9410Z


Hi there.
Eject the CD tray and turn off the laptop, underneath the laptop you will find a screw that holds the CD/DVD in place, once you have removed the screw pull gently on the tray and it will slide out and you can install the new drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dvd problem


not an easy one to fix,

first you'll need to find out if it's the lens adjustment or a laser problem. this will require you to open up the drive, and test it running open, use protective glasses to shield your eyes from the laser.

buying a new one is faster less time consuming and about 20 dollars. Removing it and connecting the new one, anyone can do 4 screws, and to diff cable that only fit one way.

DVD / CD - RW Combo


When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
