Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer Aspire 4530 Notebook is not reading CD/DVDs. I've Googled it for about two days and still no solution to my problem, The Drive makes this weird noise as if it were spinning the Disc but in fact it is not doing anything. My Drivers are updated as I have checked on my Device manager, Yet I still can't get it to work. The Light On the Disc Drive continuously flashes green but it's a no go. Can someone please help me with some step by step Advice?

    I am having a similar problem with my Aspire 5610. When I put any kind of disc in it sounds like it is trying to read it, then does nothing. If I try to click on the dvd drive it spits the disc out and says to insert a disc. No clue what is going on with it.

The disc drive on my acer Aspire 5742G will not read any music cd's or dvds. I makes plenty of noise as though it is trying to open it but nothing!


The CD/DVD drive may need reseating to make proper electrical connection. Remove this drive and insert it back into the laptop.
Next try cleanibg the drive.
The laser lens maybe dirty, use a CD/DVD lens cleaning kit to clean the lens int the drive.
If this does not fix your problem then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.

My acer aspire 4530 only doesn't recgonize CD-Rs as audio cds


The reason that is happening is because your laser is going bad in your drive. To verify it, try different discs and if your getting the same result then you know the drive is bad and the drive would have to be replaced.

MAY U PLZ ASSIST ME WITH MY ACER LAPTOP ASPIRE 4330 THE DRIVE IS UNABLE TO WRITE ALL THE DVDS BUT IT IS ABLE TO READ DVDS THE ONLY PROBLEM IS BURNING DVDS. HOW CAN I ENHENCE MY DVD/CD-RW COMBO TO WRITE THE...


No Sir, Acer Aspire 4330 comes with different Optical Media Loadings, ( You can see a pdf file here )
Like;
  • DVD/CD-RW combo drive
  • 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive.
But you have the first one, The Combo drive not the super so you can READ both CD's DVD's but can write only CD's.

Hope this removes your dilemma.

My DVD drive in ACER Aspire 4720 not reading burnt DVDs and CDs


well look for cds that are thicker and sturdier. some low cost CDRs are too thin and/or soft that they cant handle the heat generated by the cd drive.
