CD/DVD Drive now disappeared


Sorry to say that your cd/dvd drive is DEAD

You need a replacement

You have done all you could to see if the registry is corrupted and drivers are installed which are the basic things the drive needs to run

Since you have said that you did these things the last resort is to now declare it dead and replace the drive.

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


Most likely the drive is dead, they die from time to time, sometimes they can last years and sometimes but less frequently they just go belly up one day and its very typical for the Cmos and computer to recnognize there is a device there, but Windows cannot access it at all. Try purchasing an external USB or Firewire if your PC has a port for it - and you can then access your CD/s that way. Otherwise, you can purchase a new drive and have it installed. Locating the drive replacement may require some research and time depending on the notebook's specific model number. Also check to see if your PC is still under warranty by any chance, that drive would be covered in most cases.

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd


Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)
