This is a pretty common issue. The drive has become old and tired. Go into the device manager and click on the dvd drive to see what model it is (likely uj-850). Search it on ebay and order a new one. To replace it there is one screw on the bottom of the laptop about 4 or five inches back from the middle of the drive. Remove it and the drive should just pop out. Slide in the new drive and screw it down and problem solved.
Hopes this helps

    This is an issue with laptop dvd drives on a regular basis. The drive gets old and tired and does not work properly. If you go into the device manager and click on dvd drive write down the drive model (likely uj-850) search ebay for the model number and order one. To replace it there is only one screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds it in. Remove it and the whole thing pops out. put the new one in and screw it down and done

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/
