Question about Acer Aspire 4530-5889 Notebook PC

DVD Writer not functioning properly in XP

I have an Acer 4530 laptop running on both XP and Windows 7. Recently I installed Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 and then uninstalled it (in XP). But after that my DVD writer is not functioning properly in XP> Whenever I insert a DVD or CD, it shows it as empty. It detects that a DVD or CD has been inserted but cannot detect data on it. But it is working fine in Windows 7. In windows 7, I am using Power ISO to write data to DVDs and CDs.

Any help is very much appreciated. I could format the system but that is not the correct solution. So please help me.

Hi there.
While you are in XP go to the device manager, look down the list of devices for the DVD rom, click on the + icon next to the DVD rom, right click on the DVD and uninstall it, restart the PC and let windows re-detect the DVD and install it.
I also suggest that you clean the registry, download Ccleaner from here, install it and clean the system and registry.

i would unistall every burning program you have and install burn4free from burn4free.com its free and it burns everything. I think maybe you have your software set to make an image file rather than burn a disk

What problem are you having? What error-messages?

If you are using Windows NT or 2000 or XP or Vista or Windows 7, the device-driver for CD-ROM, CD-writer, and DVD-reader/writers is _included_ in the Operating System.

If you need software to help you create/burn CD/DVD/Blu-Ray disks, see: http://WWW.MajorGeeks.com and search for "AShampoo Burning 6" -- this is _free_ software.

Have Nero Suite on old Windows XP installation. Doesn't work on my new computer with Windows 7. Do you have any remedies?


It will not work on Windows 7; your easiest course of action is to download a free suite; go to www.download.com and search for DDVD burning, or you could use what I do-Ashampoo burning Free:

Try installing Ashampoo Burning Studio (Free). Windows XP does not come with DVD support; you need to add it with a 3rd party application. Here is a link you can follow:

http://download.cnet.com/Ashampoo-Burning-Studio-Free/3000-2646_4-10776287.html

Download.com is a great resource for software-you can filter by OS, free to try, free, or paid, and has some nice reviews to help you.

I recently bought a QPS 525 at a estate sale, does a person need software to run it?


Windows XP has "built-in" software for writing CD-R disks.

Or, download the FREE "Ashampoo Burning" CD-writer software from http://www.MajorGeeks.com

Version 6 is "free", and Version 9 (which is *NOT* free) is good software.
