Hi,

Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,

CD ROM DRIVER


Optical drives (cd/dvd) for the most part don't requires drivers in the sense other hardware does. That's why they work during boot.

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

I am trying to burn a cd on my Acer Aspire 5536-5255 using WMP and it isn't working?


In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

HI have a ACER HL-DT-ST-DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA DVD DRIVE AND THE DVD DRIVE OLNY LOAS SOME PROGRAMS ON DVD DISK AND NOT OTHERS AND ALSO WILL NOT WRITE TO THE DVD OR CD DISK


the cd-dvd drives will only work if you have a good non-microsoft burning program. Your computer came with such programs--one or two. find out by installing a freeware program called Belarc advisor. It will show you all hardware and software with ids and version numbers. You didn't mention if your computer was an Acer. If it is, you have a copy of all the software saved on the hard drive. or did you purchase the DVD drive separately? if Acer, you can find and reinstall your original program using Acer eRecovery Management. (You can read about your Acer by clicking on "All Programs" and then on "AcerSystem", where you will find your manual, where you will find the following info: The eRecovery allows you to backup/restore the factory default image, and reinstall any applications and drivers. (In this instance you want to reinstall your CD-DVD burning programs). You just need to select the Burn Disc button, then select the application you want to burn to the disc--in this case, you CD-DVD buring program you identified with Belarc, burn it, then reinstall it. (You might want to burn all the applications the computer came with, just to have them for backup). That should get you going again. Let me know if you run into any problems.

Cd burner


Hi moose,

Go to Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager. Click the + by DVD/CD-rom drives, see if your CDrom is listed. If it is, right click on it, and select Uninstall.
Reboot, and WIndows should find it, and reload it. If it doesn't show up, good chance your CDrom is dead.

Good Luck

Acer Drive d icon in my computer


DMagnus and Guest

when your pc is starting, click on DEL to see BiosSetup. In BOOT SEQUENCE, where you can find FLOPPY, MASTER 1, SLAVE 1, MASTER 2 and SLAVE 2, see in SLAVE 1 if your D DRIVE NAME appears or try to select it clicking in ENTER and changing in a hardware list that will show up. If you don't see your D drive's name there, means that it's not working anymore and needs a new one like that.
Normaly, Acer comes with Philips DVD's (about CD players I don't know) and has as variation only the model (example: Philips DVD-R+RW S8441) , wich is the mark that you need to know and search in BIOS SETUP.

hope this helps to you know what happened ;-)
