Question about Acer (91.42R37.001) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

1 Answer

I can't read any of my cd or dvd with my Acer Extensa 4420-5963. I put the cd in and the light blinks like it's going to read it, but nothing happens, also there is no icon for it in My Computer. When I go to the device manager I get this message "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

I just wanted to post a reply regarding a missing dvd/cd in the ?My Computer? & in the ?Device Manager?. I bought my Acer5610z in September of 2007, about March of 2008 I was unable to use my dvd/cd because it was not being recognized by the computer. This was very frustrating as I like to back up files often. I have tried EVERYTHING! 1)I have tried to mess with the registry as suggested by several sites.. NOTHING 2)I have tried to uninstall any applications which would mess with my player such as ITunes..etc.. NOTHING 3)I would have tried to restore my settings back to factory default but I cannot remember my freaking password for erecovery.. So this was not, nor is it still an option for me. (Anyone who reads this and knows a lil trick for me to fix that issue please feel free to let me know. thanks.. Anyways.. I found this website and got very excited because I seen all the great comments and thought to myself, now maybe after about a year (give or take)I might be able to burn cds again! You will never guess how I fixed this issue!!! *I first took out several screws on the back of my laptop..scared I was gonna mess up my comp.. but didn?t.. whew.. For the life of me I could not find a way to access the dvd disk drive to ensure things were plugged in properly. (I never messed with a laptop yet) I couldn?t find it.. Then my lover found a site online which detailed how to remove the dvd/cd drive to ensure it is plugged in all the way, sound scary? meh.. Turns out all you have to do is eject the disk (use paperclip into hole) and you can gently pull on the metal that you see holding the edge of the dvd player. Pull it all the way out (its a plug n play so don?t worry about cords)on my Aspire 5610z anyways CHECK YOUR SYSTEM DETAILS TO ENSURE IT DOES NOT COME WITH CORDS) Replace the dvd/cd back into the slot and press firmly but not too firm to break it (you want to make sure its plugged in all the way) Reboot.. Voiiiiiila! xoxox I looked forever for this stupidly simple alternative to messing with the registry etc..

My Acer Extensa 5630EZ making noise when i put in a cd or dvd.. can I solve the problem or it has a bigger problem?? Sorry for my english, I'm just learning this language..


This sounds as though the ACER unit is defective, the CD is turning around on a spindle which is either lopsided, or is bent. To save yourself the problem, replace the drive, if this is a new drive, go to ACER's website, request a work order, and send in your drive.

Make sure the DVD drive is set as the 1st bootable drive in the bios, exit and SAVE from the bios.
Make sure the disk is clean and unscratched. Try it again, pressing a key when it asks.
If this still does not work, try the disk in another PC if possible. If this will not boot the other computer into the instalation process. Your disk may be damaged

My lg dvd rom is not reading dvds


Try deleting upper and lower filters of your optical drive. To do that, run regedit on start search. Then, follow this path: local machine, system, current control set, control, class, 4D36E965- E325 - 11CE - BFC1- 08002BE10318. then on the window under Name, look for upper and/or lower filters. right click on it and delete. restart pc. then you're good to go.

Hello preto,

What you probably have is bad lens. This is the main reason why DVD/Cd drives stop reading discs. You will have to replace the lens and it will be all right.

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
