Hi mine is Acer Aspire 4520. I was playing movie from a DVD yesterday all fine. I left it inside the drive. Today I found that my DVD Ram device has gone bad; it's showing all empty space in whatever...

Can you suggest which OS you are using?
Does this problem exist for all the CDs/DVDs?
Try to insert bootable CD and try boot from it and check if it works.
You can try blank cd and just write it using NERO and check.

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

I need to find a driver for the cd dvd drive on my acer aspire 5520-5865

There's no need for a "driver" -- Windows should _directly_ support it, to let you read CD and DVD media.

However, if you want to "play" a DVD movie, you'll need to have software (either supplied by ACER or purchased online, such as PowerDVD) to play the movie.

My cd dvd drive does not work it is corrupted

Since I can't determine what specific type of DVD Drive you have based on laptop model, here is a website that will give you a few choices of generic drive drivers that should solve your problem. Download the drivers, install and reboot before you let windows install the device. Let the install happen after reboot.
