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

My Acer T180-EA381B desktop won't burn dvd's over

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.

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 -
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:
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.
