Go to the Acer website and reinstall the device driver for your cd-rom. If that does not help, your laser eye may be dirty and needs to be cleaned.

Unknown cd-dvd rom driver for Acer Aspire 5100


the possible cause could be upper lower filters. does the cd drive show up in "My Computer"?
if so follw these steps -
click start-> run-> type "regedit" (no quotation)-> click file-> export(make sure that all is selected and that save location is in the C: drive, very important.) -> find this reg key - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

make sure this is 100% right. now left click it once and stuff will come up in the right side of the window pane. delete the entries on the right side that say "upper filters" and "lower filters". restart your pc. hopefully this should work.
FYI, the registry is everything about the pc, be very carefull not to delete the wrong thing

Acer 5100 lost dvd/cd drive


Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
