Since I can't determine what specific type of DVD Drive you have based on laptop model, here is a website that will give you a few choices of generic drive drivers that should solve your problem. Download the drivers, install and reboot before you let windows install the device. Let the install happen after reboot.

SOURCE: Sudden problem with DVD drive

Will the Notebook boot from the CD/DVD with a system disk installed? Have a check first, if not:
Ensure your CD/DVD tray is empty and re boot your Notebook. If you still get the problem, I suspect the driver has corrupted. Go online to the Acer web site and download an updated driver. Follow their instructions to re install it and that should be that. If you still have a problem, maybe the drive itself has failed.

Hope that helps

Can you suggest which OS you are using?
Does this problem exist for all the CDs/DVDs?
Try to insert bootable CD and try boot from it and check if it works.
You can try blank cd and just write it using NERO and check.

There propably isnt anything wrong with the dvd drive itself, Its probably the driver that runs it is corrupt or out of date.
Click start and type drivers into search.
Select update device drivers.
Then double click dvd/cdrom drives from the list.
right click each driver available in the drop down selection and click update driver.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

P.S if that doesnt work, repeat the process but instead of clicking update driver, click scan for hardware changes

5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

How to find a cd/dvd writer for acer aspire 4720z model


It can be expensive to replace an internal CD/DVD drive. You might be better off buying an external drive. They're a lot cheaper but yes annoying to have to carry around. If you're still keen on getting a replacement internal drive speak to your local computer technicnan and ask for a quote.
