    Are the disks burned or original copies?  Sometimes cd/dvd players will only recognize original copies of software discs.

Make sure that he has updated drivers...

Step 1:
for xp and vista:
get to control panel under settings on the start menu.

Step 2:
for XP (new look): Control Panel > Peformance and Maintainance > System
xp (classic look): Control Panel > System
click 'hardware' tab, and 'device manager'

or type : 'devmgmt.msc' into run under start menu.

Step 2:
for VISTA: Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager

or type: 'devmgmt.msc' into search box under start menu

now see if the computer recognizes the dvd/cd rom drive hardware under 'dvd/cd rom drives'

now go to the manufacturer of the computer's website here: "" (minus the quotes) and follow the instructions to get the right up to date driver.....

...i hope this helps... if not it could be an actual hardware problem

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks

Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.
