How old is the drive?
on the early models there were incompatibility, between + and -.
your drive may not be able to read that particular format.
this could also be a dirty laser issue, as DVDs are compressed at a different rate
by the way will it play cds?

Acer aspire 5733z does not detect dvd drive


This sounds like your dvd drive stopped working. try with different cds or dvds. If not there is a complicated way but if you are not familiar with computers don't do that. A service technician can easily solve it for you.

DVD not recognising the disc


Does it say anything like can't read disc, or just spins up and stops with no notification? Sounds like the DVD is scratched or maybe wrong format, its not a bluray is it? How old is the TV? If it hasn't played a DVD in a long time dust can collect on the lens, a Lens cleaner disc may help.

My laptop has a strange problem. CDs and DVDs do work fine but when I put in 1 particular DVD the drive does not recognise it. The DVD is working on other computers though. I have an ACER ASPIRE 6530 ,...


Hello,

This is not uncommon at all.

There are slight variations in drives and the tracks of data on the disks are extremely small. A disk may be off a tiny amount and may not work in some drives but will work in others. This seems to be particularly true of user recorded disks.

One thing that sometimes works is to make a copy of the disk. Even making a copy with a drive that won't read it normally may sometimes work. The disk copying software will usually warn you and refuse to try if it really can't read it. Try copying it in another machine, that should solve the problem.

When I insert a DVD I get a noise when loading then after a while it stops and the DVD get stuck in the drives and won't play. It's as if the drive can't read the disk??


Sounds like there is a problem with the holders on the top of the dvd drive that is supposed to keep the discs in place so it prevents the noises from happening. They wear out after lots of gameplay. Easiest thing to do is to replace the dvd drive because to open it up and replace the holders could cause more damage to the drive.

It just might be a problem with the laser carriage motor that moves the laser assy back and forth to read from the inner portion of the disc to the outer portion. If it can't move from the reference position, it won't read anything more than the initial data on any disc. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Device Won't Recognise Blank CD-R Media or Certain Music CDs.


try and see if you can pull a directory using explorer,, sometimes if you record to the full 80 minutes capacity, the disc will return an error,,,even if you recorded it on that drive...also i know this may sound strange but on the drive tray itself take the mount where the laser is mounted and extend it out to the furthest travel point ,,,gently,,,do not force...load the disc, and see if it is now recognized,,,sometimes it is a timing issue, and this way the tray/laser recalibrates itself....
