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?

Re: cd\dvd drive won't read software cd

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

My hp lap top want reconize my cd/dvd drive. when i load a cd it says the drive is empty.

have you tried to use different kind of MEDIA like a regular software cd from a printer, web cam, game etc just to test, a music cd, a mp3 cd, a dvd movie, see if any type works.

you may have a cd drive and you are trying to use a dvd disk !! . unusual but posible..

if it does not read any type of disk, try to use a cd/dvd cleaner kit. it looks like a regular cd but it has tiny brushes and it comes with a liquid that clean the LASER on the cd drive.

Dvd combo

Did you try axcessing the drive manually ??? Start > My computer > D:(you cd drive),, If it doesnt show up then the drive may be damamged. If it does you just need to associate the .ext with a program. Double click on the drive if a option box doesnt open up, you should see the audio files.. just right click on one and select properties. You should see the program the file is associated with. Just click change and select another program.

Aspire 3002 Nlc note book DVD Comboo is not recognised

Hi, sorry you might need to explain a little better, but i will try. The DVD Combo drive doesnt need any drivers to work, the only thing you need is somthing like powerdvd to watch films, if the drive is not reading cds or dvds and in device manager you have a yellow tag, probably next to Primary ide its windows drivers, but if you could explain in a little more detail will be happy to help.. All the best John
