How do I get the cd/dvd player into the slots that are blocked


The plastic front panel will have removeable plastic panels the size of the CD/DVD drive, these are held in place by clips, you can push the panel out.
You can also remove plastic front panel, it may be secured by screws or plastic clips. When you remove the plastic front panel the CD/DVD drive slot may be covered with a metal plate, you can remove this plate by bending the metal plate back and forth until it breaks away from the drive bay.

Invalid disc error


Most likely you need to replace the drive, they are very cheap on ebay. Here is how to replace it 1st power up and open tray then unplug. remove front of tray, it unclips at bottom, pull out and up then slides off. remove screws and take the entire drive out. Remove base plate of replacement drive and screw down into the two rear mountings. Remove facia of Recorder and cut out the three little pieces of moulding directly above where the tray drawer will be, this prevents the drive from being forced down at the front. With facia off fit the drive back onto the now screwed down base plate. Replace facia, connect drive power up and open drawer then unplug. On the drawer front cut off the centre small moulding because it doesn't line up with the cut outs in the drawer, the other two do, slide the front downwards onto the drawer then press at the bottom till it clips in. Job done. My 5005 now reads much faster and recognises all discs prior to this Invalid Disc on everything, cleaned lens and it would then only see pre-recorded films etc but no blank discs.

How do I install more memory to an Acer AX3400? The drive is in the way and can't see how to remove it. Helllllp! ! Thanks. Matt


Aaah! good old acer and their inability to build a pc with user accessable parts! (I have one too).
On the metal frame holding the dvd drive, there will be either a slide clip or small tabs. unlock the drive and push the drive out toward the front. If it moves a little then stops, remove the front of the pc by gently pulling the tabs at each corner of the front facia and fulling it off. Once the dvd drive is moved out, disconnect the power and data cables from the drive. this should give you enough room to insert the new ram. Be careful when adding components to a pc, make sure you are earthed - leave the power cord plugged - in but switch the power off. this will give you an earth. touch the chassis of the pc before you install components to make sure you don't discharge static electricity into the components or motherboard.
Good luck!

Does my computer have a dvd burner


Hi,

If you look at the front of the CD tray on the front facia panel it should have something on it that say DVD-RW if it does not have this on it then No it is not a DVD burner.

It will only be a CD writer.

Hope this helped,

Thanks

Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My ford mondeo 6X CD Sony is playing up all the time with original c.d's Can you help showing change cd check cd then suddenly works Do i need a c.d. cleaner?


The problem maybe that the drive gear that spins the disc is sticky. I had same problem, take cd unti out remove front facia then remove cradle that locks cd into dash. This give access to 4 screws, remove top lid on cd and temp connect facia and cd back in car load cd and watch to see if it spins up if not spin gently with finger. If it plays ok remove and gently oil between black drive disc and motor. Play cd again hopefully this will resolve problem.
Make sure laser is clean of any oil that may have spun off disc.
Best of luck it worked for me.
