Question about Acer Aspire 5003WLMi Notebook
Had to replace a dvdrw drive in an acer 3634 however the unit I am installing is a phillips spd8005bm/17 the computer recognizes it as a slave and it will not operate or read discs , and also requests driver load , doesn't need one . so I guess the firmware is not compatible , any ideas out there.
Can we assume the phillips is a known working drive? and not a used one with a worn laser? - remove the cd rom controller itself and let windows redetect it - you may have to locate a driver for it - if it was working on another machine, you could see what driver file it uses, and possibly your acer doesn't have the file, although it's a common windows file, maybe acer saw no need to include it in their factory created hard drive image? essentially, a missing windows xp system file.
