You do not have one on an acer netbook. You may have to download the software to a thumbdrive for your ISP and boot from that thumbdrive. there are other solutions but this is the easiest.

My computer could not recognize cd/ dvd drive. No drive letter or anything.Tried everything but still nothing happened. My driver is working (there is light bleeping) but when i insert a cd, no action....


I had the same issue, not once but twice. Both times however, it required service technicians to fix, and actually replace the device. There was an additional issue however that may have started the decline in the first place. I am unable to get high speed internet, and as a result, many of my updates are interrupted and files slowly become corrupted. If this occurs often enough, it can actually corrupt your O.S. and browser! I had to replace the internal CD/DVD in my computer twice, and the last time, they had to wipe my computer and reinstall the O.S. Not the best of news. What I do now to avoid the problem, is to disable automatic updates, and only update elsewhere where I can get high speed internet services. It's a pain, but better than having the issues that come with slow internet. .

How do i install internet ti sylvania mini note book


Hi there,

There are three basic solutions for installing software on a netbook without an optical drive:

1. Share the Disc Over a Network

Required: A network, and a PC with an optical drive
This solution essentially shares the optical drive in one PC over a network to your Netbook. For most this is the easiest method because most users these days have a network readily available, and assuming there's a network there's likely a PC with an optical drive connected to it.
First you need to load the CD/DVD into the optical drive in the PC. Now go to My Computer and right click on the drive with the loaded media, click properties, navigate to the Sharing tab (note if you haven't done this before it may give you a warning that you shouldn't do this unless you know what you're doing, click the message to continue). Check the Share this folder on the network box, give it a name of your choice and hit OK.
From this point forward any computer on your network will be able to access the shared drive. If this is a problem be sure to follow the steps above and uncheck Share this folder on the network, to take it off.
Now, make sure your Netbook is connected to the network (this works wirelessly or through ethernet wired connection). Access My Network Places, and click Add A Network Place, use the wizard to add the optical drive you selected to share.
Now that it is shared you should be able to access it from My Network Places at any time (when your Netbook is connected to the network), and it should automatically refresh if you switch the CD, if it doesn't do a right-click, and hit refresh and the files should update. If you are trying to install software and are used to auto-run, double click the Setup.exe file or similar to begin installation.

2. Use an External Optical Drive (can be a bootable disc)
Required: External optical drive
External optical drives are the easiest way to use CD/DVD media and install software to your Netbook. It is however the most expensive option.
External drives are very simple; just plug it into an available USB port. Your Netbook will automatically detect the drive and simply add it to My Computer just like a built in drive. Some drives will even run power through the USB, while this makes them more mobile it eats up your Netbook's battery faster, if that is a problem other external drives do require a power outlet for use but should not drain your battery.

3. Create an Image (not bootable)
Required: Image making software (like Alcohol 120% or VirtualDrive), image emulation software (Alcohol 120% includes one, Dameon Tools is another, or Power Iso), access to a computer with an optical drive, and a method to transfer a large file from that computer to your Tablet PC.
You will need to use your particular software User-Guide for most of this process. What you do essentially is use software to create an exact copy of the CD in the form of a file (normally a .iso) that has to be read by an optical drive emulator which then can access the CD as if it were being read by a real optical drive. The biggest disadvantage to this method is that CDs can run around 700mbs, DVDs around 4gbs... transferring files of that size, even over fast networks, can be tedious. A benefit however is you can carry important CDs (as files) with you as you go, so for example if you need to install Microsoft Word content to use some feature while your in a meeting, you can do so without having the physical CD with you... This however of course requires heavy disk space since the CD file tends to be around 700mbs.

Hope this helps.

Hello mis_74,

First things first What type of Disc Drive are you using ?
CD Rom
CD/DVD Drive

Requirements are that you use a CD/DVD Rom Drive.

Next make sure the disc itself is not smudged with finger prints ect. Also check for scratches on the disc. Making sure it is clean ensures that the laser is correctly reading the disc.


Double check and see if other disc's DVD's and CD's will play in the same drive to ensure the drive itself is not bad.

Post back if you are still having problems after verifying that these things are not causing the issue.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

First enable the Wireless service of your Internet Service Router/modem what ever it is.

Then enable the Wireless plug and play service in your Laptop, it will automatically load the required file, if not then use the Windows Installation CD/Mobo CD of the Laptop.

Let me know if you need further assistance and also specify in detail so we can investigate and fix the problem.

Have a Nice Day & Best of Luck
