    thank you for the help, it didnt solve the problem but i think its getting closer to detecting something. at least now when i put a disk in the drive it will make a few clicking noises and sounds like it is at least trying to detect a cd/dvd...

Yes and i hope this works

  1. start>right click on my computer click on properties tab and click on hardware tab and click ondevice manager tab click on dvd/cd rom and right click on each one of the unistall and if there is not there at all.
  2. click on ide/ata controller and uninstall all.
  3. start>run>regedit click on ok
  4. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  5. look at the right side and delete the lower filters and upper filters
  6. just remember one thing when you go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM you will have control set 001 and control set 002 do both them so i am giving you an example
if you have one that is fine and if you have 2 that is fine .
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet 001\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet 002 \Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318

i know it sound alot and too much but it is really easy follow the steps and i hope things go well thanks please rate...

Acer aspire 3690, my cd-rom will play movies, audio and some old games can be read but mostly refuses to read most of my game disks now, any ideas??


Try an external DVD drive that you can connect to your USB port. The drive you have in the laptop either has a dirty laser lens, which you can carefully clean with a "Q" and alcohol, or the laser itself may be going out. The drive can be replaced. You mentioned you have a cd-rom. If you can play movies (DVD) it is more likely a DVD drive instead of a cd-rom. CD-ROMs can only read data or music.

I recently purchased an aspire one netbook 531


I suspect the e recovery is designed to be used on a normal CD/DVD and not on the USB version As you have very recently purchased the device, I would contact the ACER support line - heres a link to the global phone numbers http://support.acer-euro.com/phone.html Then if there is a problem with the machine you can get an RMA number and take it back to the shop where you purchased and they should exchange as its so new - or return to ACER for repair

I have an acer aspire 3690. got the swp2009 demo virus. ran spyware doctor anti virus. comp will not load past the acer aspire screen. i have the 6 recovery discs that were made with the original purchase....


if the recovery discs wont work you may want to low level format (powermax) and try a fresh install. only downside is u will need a copy of windows with the serial key and u will lose all your data - http://digilander.libero.it/YorkOne/powermax/ - download and burn to cd >>> powermax-4.09.iso

Cd drive/ USB/ reinstall XP


Nifty little IDE to laptop ide adapters on ebay for under $10 delivered..
remove laptop HD.. use adapter, plug into desktop as second drive.
Load up XP install to a folder.. use a decent file copier so you get hidden files. try filesync 2.xx (look for it),
Back into the laptop, try it..

Only other thing would be LEGACY USB SUPPORT in the bios and an external usb drive... Hopefully your usb problem is XP related and not hardware related..
