I have the acer 5517, i would like to make a copy of a cd i have, how is this done? also how to you make a copy of a dvd?

You'd first of all have to make sure the optical drive actuallly is a CD and/or DVD writer. There are optical drives that only read, for example. If it is a 'writer' you can use the utilities that came with your Acer to burn CDs and/or DVDs. If you can't find them, there are free DVD copy utilities, sometimes called CD or DVD burn programs you can download from the Internet, for example. Make sure you download from a reputable site, like

Can i burn the mini cd's/dvd's in my inspiron 1525?

Yes you can, your Notebook has a Dvd Writer with it, mini or normal dvds/cds will burn well without any problem if the Cd/Dvd Drive has no issues reading/writing Cds/Dvds.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have replaced the dvd rom/cd rw with dvd rw, but i am unable to write or burn still only possible with cds

Hi. You need to install the burning software that came with your DVD writer to make sure that you have the latest burning software compatible with your unit. If you are using older version of the burning software like Nero or PowerDVD, you need to uninstall the old version, re-start your PC and install the new software that came with your DVD burner. DVD burning is not possible using file explorer.

Need help with Compaq Presario v2000 drivers

Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.

Dvd writer will not burn disc images, it will burn all other types ie music cds, data dvds, file backups, cant find name of dvd writer to get firmware update

Usually, you need software to read an 'ISO' disk-image file, and to decode the file, and to burn to a CD/DVD,
e.g., "AShampoo Burning Edition 6" is a free download from that will do the task.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Select and expand the CD/DVD branch of the tree.
Double-click the CD/DVD drive.
Click Details to dislay the name/model of the device.

I have DVD writer, but I could only write cds. I am not able to write DVDs.

Change your burning setting to dvd. Or is it really a dvd writer? Could it be only Dvd combo drive?

Or use higher version for your burning software that can burn dvd. I think Nero 8 or 9.
