These drives don't work unless you have a non-microsoft CD and/or DVD burning software program. Some Acer el cheapos come with either no program, or one which is configured for Windows XP instead of Vista and therefore causes conflicts and won't work (I speak from experience). Acer is pretty horrible about their support--they might not even inform you whether your computer came with burning software, and they hand out generic insructions which don't list what YOU should have. I recommend downloading Belarc explorer, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, call Acer telephone support (if you go online for support, they don't even list their telephone number, but try to trick you into thinking you have to use their hair-tearing lousy self-diagnosing troubleshooting programs online, which are worse than useless), and if you get a rep who won't help you, demand to speak to a supervisor, and demand the help you have paid for. It is their problem, not yours. If they tell you it is a Microsoft problem, not theirs, they lie--all preinstalled microsoft programs are serviced by the computer manufacturer, not microsoft. Acer customer support is 800 816-2237, 8 to 5:30
