My Acer Aspire T180-EA381B desktop won't burn dvd's over half the time...it goes through the motions, tried a few different programs, it says that it has sucessfully burned the files but there is nothing on the discs and of course I end up throwing half of them away unused...agh...I tried removing and re-intalling the driver, no luck...any suggestions? Thanks!

The DVD Drive iteself may be bad. After installing/reinstalling the drivers, there are only two things left to check and that is if the driver was installed correctly (device manager- check to see if there is a "?" mark next to the DVD drive) or you can buy another drive and install. A new drive should take cae of your issue.

My dvd writer is burning cds but not dvds dont know why it always did before


If you are using the exact same DVD's by make and size then the drive is probably getting worn. If different DVD's then they are probably lower quality and not compatible with your drive

The DVD player on my ACER computer won't play sound - what's the problem?


The audio cable from the DVD drive to the audio port on the motherboard is probably not connected. There is 3 cables that goes to the DVD drive, 1 is power, 2 is the data cable that goes to the motherboard and 3rd is the audio cable that also goes to the motherboard

How can i fix my acer aspire T180 i can only use it on safe mode


What changed? Try resetting your BIOS to Bare. You will then have to reset time and date. As far as safe mode goes, replace component after component until you get to the one causing the trouble. You may have some CPU parameters wrong. Did you change that recently?

My Acer desktop burns DVD well, however, I could not find the function of finalize and the dvd cannot be used in other instruments.


What Burning package are you using? I like Nero 8, but Nero 9 is available. This will greatly reduce the frustration of burning a DVD, making sure that you can put more than one program on it and making sure it will work with other systems. Please write me and tell me if you've had trouble with this package.

Has my Acer Aspire T180-R97Z got DVD burning facilities? It can play DVD's. Thank you, Susan-Jane.


Yes, it has. You can't view DVD's because for that you need specialized codecs or media players. 
To view DVD's install VLC -   http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
To burn dvd disks that can be played on a regular dvd player you need to programs: one to convert your video file - i use

-  to the dvd format and any burning software - i use

Hi I have a Acer Aspire T180 Desktop and have fitted a new SATA HD as the original went down. I am trying to reload Vista but when I get to a paoint passed loading Product key it asks to Load drivers ??...


You will need to go to a working computer and go to this web site:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html
Download the drivers onto a flash drive or have them burned to a CDROM/DVD and bring them to your Acer and upload/point to them on the flash/cdrom/dvd, should fix you right up.

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.
