Re: I need a optical drive for a Acer Aspire
What happened to ur old dvd drive is it not working i can help u in this if u want
Straight option Call Acer and ask them for a new DVD drive but it will be costly bcoz acer will charge u as an OEM bcoz they dont make drives but if u buy from them u dont have to do anything just open the screw and slip the drive in
but if u want cost effective solution then try EBAY but at this option u might not find exactly for ACER but u will find universal type u have to see the face plate of the drive but u can easily take out the face plate of ur old drive and can easily fit to the new drive if it does not fit ur notebook there are pins to take the face plate out
u can try on EBAY go for OPTIARC - NEC -Toshiba is also good but never buy MATSHITA brand it is not good at all pls avoid it at any cost
pls let me know if i can help more in this
and pls do rate me FIXYA for this if u like my response

AS the new drive is a USB drive, you cannot make it default via the BIOS as the BIOS has no control over the USB device installed. You can however configure Windows Backup/restore to default to the USB drive for the purposes of Backup and Restore. Hope that helps.

Can you try if the CD/DVD optical drive can boot from a windows cd - if so your problem is probably windows software if not drive optics may need cleaning or it may be necessary to replace the drive. If replacement is necessary it is the fitting of the front bezel - to the same type of drive [usually the same manufacturer] that is critical.
