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.
click on ide/ata controller and uninstall all.
start>run>regedit click on ok
In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
look at the right side and delete the lower filters and upper filters
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 .

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 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
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

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..
