1. To solve hang on boot
Move the CDROM behind the hard drive on the boot order
2. To solve freezes on drive reads
Update the driver from manufacturer
Change the windows read ahead method
But again, sounds like need new CDROM drive.
So there you have it, a couple of different ideas on how to try to debug the problem and a likely solution that we all agree on: replace the drive.

Pc hang when there is disk inserted on my dvd ram..

Your DVD drive needs serviceing, you can use a lens cleaning CD,
When you insert a Disk, it keeps on trying to read it, so the PC hangs meanwhile

Dell xps desktop slot load optical disk drive stuck. Wont eject disk and no pin hole to stick a paperclip in.

It's probably a driver issue, I know this because I reinstalled WIN7 Pro, because of some experimenting and it was after the reinstall that media wouldn't eject using the touch-bar ejecter, although I was able to get everything else working flawlessly. No problem though, just open My Computer, right click on the CD/DVD Drive and click eject from the pulldown menu. Currently I'm looking for the driver fix, but haven't found it YET~! P.S. Anyone who thinks or says it's the BIOS is crazy... don't listen to them. It's more than likely a chipset driver because it's hardware, but don't rule proprietary software. Hope this helps~!

Were can i download movies free, ?

hi, first of all you need to dowload "utorrent".
Follow this link:

Download and install.

Next you have to download movies torrent from torrent( sharing) site.
e.g ,,

Select movie and dowload torrent

Double click or right click on downloaded torrent and open with "utorrent". It will take some time to download movies depending upon your internet speed and no.of seeders for that movie.

Acer aspire 5102 with philips sdvd8821 dvdram drive

alright. bubul78, your post is in no way shape or form a solution for the problems given by other users. I too have a acer laptop with the philips dvd drive in it, device manager detects the dvd reader and says it is running with no problems. i can hear the drive read the cd when inserted, tho when trying to access the drive through my computer the window hangs at the hourglass for a min or so, then says please insert a cd. only solution is that something is physically wrong with the drive. ok so solution found, replace the cd drive. but where is acers sight to order replacement parts? poor site navigation in my opinion.
