goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

The DVD Driver was disappear!

This could mean you have motherboard problems, or the drive died... however, the most common issue is windows registry corruption. Right click this link and save the vbs script to your hard drive: Restore CD/DVD in Explorer Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the script file. Ifyou are running Vista or Windows 7 you may have to right click the file and select run as administrator, else if you are running XP just double click the file and follow the prompts. Basically the script deletes some entries in your system registry that cause the CD/DVD drive to be "re-detected" the next time you boot your computer, so once done, restart your PC and in most cases, once you are back in windows, your CD/DVD drive will show up again.
IF this doesn't work, there is a big chance your drive is no good and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps!
Regards, Chris

I inserted a game into my Acer (Windows 7) computer CD Drive... Although I cannot seem to get the game to load. Is there any solution, or is my computer just not able to handle those graphics. As soon as...

Well in oder to check if your computer can run the game try this website.
As for getting the game to load from the disk, try going to My Computer and then right clicking on the disc which should show as a D: or E: and choose explore or open. Once you are looking at the files on the disc look for the setup.exe or install.exe. This should install the game and any other dependencies needed if it is able to run on your machine.

My sims 2 games wont open. When i put the disk in, it spins and makes the noises that its going to start but never opens. ive checked through "my computer" and the computer is reconising the disk its just...

To verify whether the problem is with your cd drive or with your sims 2 disk, try running a different disk in the drive. If you are successful in opening and running the other disk, then your cd drive is fine and your sims 2 disk is faulty. If you've had the sims 2 disk for a while, it may be scratched.
If the other disk shows the same symptoms, I would suspect that your cd drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

what u might have to do is a system restore, which will restore the system to the date that u installed mortal kombat 4.

if u are using vista, just type system restore in the search bar, then back date the system to the date to the date u installed mortal kombat

if u are using XP, open "Run" on the start menu, type "msconfig" then click " launch system restore" on the general tab, than back date the system to the date u installed mortal kombat.

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)

D drive

See AutoPlay options in Control Panel if it is set to 'Run or Install Program' for a game or software. Or you can double-click the CD in My Computer (or 'Computer' in Vista).

If it doesn't show up in Computer, then it is not detecting them. If it is so, then it shouldn't even detect a DVD. But it is doing.

If this seems like a persistent problem, then show the computer to an authorised doctor.
