    I did try to make the drive my first boot up, but there is no choice for an external boot. I guess my question would be how to ge the Bootable CD to run on its own??

I removed vista and put an original licenced windows xp pro but the dvd does not work and it disappeared from the bios


Vista is proprietary, you need to go out and find the correct driver for that CD-RW/DVD-ROM for that Acer PC.

My dvd and cd rom does not pick up dvd but only cd's


Is it really a DVD drive? DVD drives can pick both with ease but a CD drive cannot pick DVD's.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas
