Pardon my ignorance but i am just a beginner.Can i watch a movie cd on my new Acer Laptop and if so what are the steps? Unfortunately no manual came with the laptop.Thank you!


Put the CD in the optical drive of the Acer laptop.

{ CD/DVD drive. Just push the button on the outside of the drive, and the optical drive tray will come out partway. Then Gently pull the tray out all the way.

Close the optical drive tray. (Gently push the tray back into the laptop)
If after a few seconds the movie doesn't start, go to My Computer, and DOUBLE-click on the drive letter associated with the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

(May be drive letter D: or E:}

[ Windows XP:
Left-click on Start, then My Computer

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Computer,
{The Windows logo button took the place of Start ]


If this doesn't do it, post back in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page is the blue Comment 'button')

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

State the Model Number of your Acer laptop, and I will give you a link to a free User Manual, from Acer Support.

( The Model Number is on the bottom of the laptop in a white sticker. It is above the Serial Number.
Do Not give out the Serial Number on a public forum such as this. Only to an authorized Acer dealer, or repair shop. S/N = Serial Number )

I have an Acer laptop, but my dvd rom drive does not appear in the My Computer folder and in that case I cannot use it to open Cd or Dvd. I need help to solve this problem. Thanks.


It's actually a manufacturing problem. The dvd metal case atually touches the the interior metal case of the laptop causing a shortcircuit. Solution: Remove The DVD drive from its place by removing the screw of the drive from the back of laptop and then pull the drive gently out from the laptop case. At the end of DVD case you can see the metalic extension, with a little hole. Cover that entire area with something, i used a sticker, but let that hole free, so you can put the screw back in once you put the DVD drive back in to the laptop case. That's it. If your DVD drive has no other defects, it should work

HOW DO I COPY A DVD TO MY ACER 6920G LAPTOP THEN BURN IT TO BLANK DVD. HAS A BLUERAY READER/REGULAR BURNER AND FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, HAS SOFTWARE THAT BURNS TO DVD FROM LAPTOP BUT NOT DVD TO LAPTOP


You can use a DVD copy program like Nero if there is one on your computer.

Nero checks to make sure that you DVD isn't copy protected before it copies it. If it is you won't be able to copy it.

Windows XP or Vista does't provide DVD copy software built into Windows.

It seems that the movie has not been written properly to the DVD in addition it seems like a copied or worst case scnerio pirated DVD.

Try a new movie or another DVD and see if the problem persist and please comeback with your finding for more appropriate advice.

Dvd problem


not an easy one to fix,

first you'll need to find out if it's the lens adjustment or a laser problem. this will require you to open up the drive, and test it running open, use protective glasses to shield your eyes from the laser.

buying a new one is faster less time consuming and about 20 dollars. Removing it and connecting the new one, anyone can do 4 screws, and to diff cable that only fit one way.
