Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I had a problem similar to this and eventually traced it to the wrong mode setting on the DVD drive's transfer mode.
To check the setting, open Device Manager and then double click on the IDE controllers item. Double click on IDE channel (if there's more than one you'll need to check each one) and then select the Advanced Settings tab. On this tab should be up to two devices and each should show under "Current Transfer Mode" soemthing including the word "DMA".
If any device shows "PIO", then this is probably the problem.
If you Google "PIO versus DMA", one of the top results has a really good article on why this happens and how to force Windows to revert to DMA.
