Yes, you can no longer downgrade, the issue is drivers and hardware. XP cannot run the new hardware. In the early days you could get drivers, but now most downgrades will lack lots of functionality. Reinstall Win 7, it works very well, once your files are PROPERLY placed.

Acer dvd driver not reading

If it is not reading you need to check the "Region" setting. If it is set for the right region, your DVD might have a problem. Although you need a DVD driver for Windows 98, which is no longer supported,
you do not a DVD driver for XP, Vista and Windows 7; those Operating Systems automatically install drivers for any DVD drives. Since you did not specify your OS, I am limited to telling you to try another DVD drive on that same computer and see what result you obtain.

Can the "bad" CD-R be properly read on some other computer?
If not, then the disk itself is the problem.

Otherwise, changing from Vista to XP does _NOT_ produce the type of problems that you are reporting.

- click start and type in the start search regedit
after this just do the same thing with the win xp instructions


try also to update the DVD codec. you can also try to download the most updated windows media player, power DVD or any software/program that have dvd codecs or that acts like a player for DVD

My ACER cd/dvd scb265 combo doesn't read some DVD data disk

Windows Vista by default burns "Live File System" It picks if its Live or not when you are "Preparing the blank disc" this is when it asks you what to you want to title the disc. The problem with Live discs is they don't work on any operating system that came before Windows XP and they don't work on Windows XP if it doesn't have service pack 3. Because of this, you want to burn your CD/DVD as a "Mastered" disc. These are compatible with all operating systems, but any files are permanent *unless you are using CD/RW or DVD/RW, DVD/RAM.

If this was not your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to you and try to fix your problem =)

Can not read DVDs by SONY DVD RW AW-G170A

I believe the read head is not aligned properly. I would send it back for a replacement. I have had this happen several time after the DVD burners/readers had many hours on them.

Dvd writter is not working

Replace the rubber belt inside. That rubber belt keeps other rotating parts inside to move faster as the motor is running, replaced it with a tight one so that when your insert a cd the optical inside can easily read your cd. The optical lens need to run with as a desired speed of your ROM xspeed.

Put a new gear belt and replace the old and tired belt inside.
