    My Acer 3500 laptop does not display the CD / DVD drive in the list of drives on my computer. CDs do not play and software on CDs are not accessible to the program on the hard drive trying to read it. I have not taken any steps yet to resolve the problem.

Actually, some Acer D drives are phantom backup drives. Install the freeware Belarc adivsor (a free download) which will tell you what hardware you have. If you don't have working burning software, your computer may not recognize your DVD drive. Belarc will tell you what software is installed, and it is probably corrupted. Go to the software website, and download/upgrade your burning program, and you likely will be in business again.

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 ;-)

Cd stuck in drive of Acer aspire z5600 touch screen how do i get it out ,cant see any pin holes


I'm sure you tried in the Computer Folder, right click the DVD/CD Rom Icon and select eject. You may have to dissemble the computer and the DVD/CD Rom drive.

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.

My CD-ROM is not recognising any CD/DVD And CD-ROM icon is also missing in my computer menu


Go to Control Panel/System/Hardware, delete the CD-ROM, and reboot so the system can find it again. If it doesn't come back after the reboot, then try physically detaching and reattaching the drive (with the power off, of course).

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

Acer Aspire 5920G wont play dvd, it wont even recognise them!


If it recognises cd but not dvd it means the drive is faulty. There is 2 lasers one for cd and one for dvd. The dvd laser is faulty. It also means that it is not dirty lens because it reads cd's.
