Cd\dvd drive won't read software cd

My Acer aspire E360's cd\dvd drive can read music cd & dvd but can't read any kind of software. I swapped cd\dvd drive few month ago because it didn't read at all. Now, It only works music cd & dvd. Does anyone heard of this kind of issue before?

Just a suggestion, try to update your drivers.. If you have installed any third party cd burner just uninstalled it. after uninstalling, clean the registry via ccleaner, regcure, or any other 3rd party cleaner... then update your drivers... most of the 3rd party cd burner software are damaging your cd drivers...

gud luck

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.

My laptop aspire 5740 is not able to read the dvd & cd...so i am not able to installed any softwares though cd & dvd..please solve the problem..


Try opening your disk tray and cleaning the lens with a tissue and all of the drive from dust. If it still won't read you may have to buy a new optical drive as your current one has broken.
Have fun :)

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.

Recently my acer aspire 5536 will not play my software(games)


Can your DVD drive read any CD or DVD?

If not, you can try using a can of Compressed Air to Blow into the Open DVD Drawer. If there is any Dust Collected on the Laser Lens, it will be Dislodged and they it will start reading again.

If not, your DVD Drive is probably Dead and will need to be Replaced.

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.
