Acer Aspire Am3470g case removal

I also have an Acer Aspire AM-3470G & just swapped DVD drives trying to troubleshoot a problem. Remove the one side panel with the finger tab that gives you access to the system board/HD's, etc. No need to remove the opposite side panel. With the panel off, there are 3 black plastic tabs holding the front cover on. Release them so that the front panel pivots to the opposite side which also has 3 black tabs. Those tabs will release themselves as you pivot the front cover. You may need a bit of force to pivot the cover so be careful not damage the plastic tabs. You'll now have complete access to the DVD tray area. The DVD is held in by 2 exposed screws, there are none on the opposite side of the drive. Unscrew them, disconnect the power & SATA connectors & slide out the drive. If you replace the DVD drive, test the new one before you reassemble all the covers to verify everything works.

DVD drive will not eject a disc

There is a small pinhole in the face of the dvd drive. Use a paperclip to poke into the hole. It will force an eject of the dvd drive. You can also explore the computer, right mouse click on the drive letter of the dvd drive, choose "eject"....
If it still will not eject, unplug the ribbon cable from the drive but keep the power plugged in, then press the eject button. If worse comes to worse, four small screws, and you can remove the shell of the drive exposing the dvd inside....
Good luck!!!!

If there is a little pin hole on the front use an unwound paper-clip. push it into the hole and the mechanism should release? Realy need more detail though.

Driver automatically uninstalled. How can I install it again & from where I can Download it

Hi friend,

When you purchase a DVD at that time you got a CD, You download CD material in another computer and copy this material in PAN drive and paste into your system, one driver folder in that material, run the appropriate drivers.
Or another solution is download drivers from Hitachi site, open the internet explorer and type the Hitachi GD 5000 (GD-5000) Internal DVD Drive drivers and download the drivers.
Some time when you restart the system its automatically delected.
