Samsung i386 dvd burner is not opening when i change windows xp to 7 pro

Do you know if the software for the burner is accepted by windows 7, and does the computer recognize the burner as being installed ?
You may have to update the driver for the burner to match windows 7 requirements.

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.

How do I get the drivers needed to make the DVD Movie Write DC3000 work on Vista?

HP does not make a Vista driver for your device. Here is their driver page for you unit:

When you plug it into your PC, it should auto-discover it. While connected to the internet, reply YES to let windows search for a driver at MS. If it finds one, you should be ok. If it can't find one, I'm afraid it's not going to work.

There are drivers only for Windows XP and Windows 2000 Pro.

Drive recognized by BIOS but suddenly not XP PRO SP3

make sure you have reinstalled all drivers for all of your drives and what not. If you have, are there any notifications in Device Manager? To get there, right click on My Computer, then click Properties. Click the Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Hope this helps, or let me know what you find in Device Manager.

Cant even READ DVD

the XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).
