I have seen some computer towers where the drive will slid out through the front. You have to take the plastic covering off the front of the computer first.

My Acer Aspire e500 doesnot detect the HDD while installing both Win7 and XP but i can see the HDD if i connect to other PC

Try connecting to another PC as you mentioned and format the drive as NTFS.Do a full format, not a quick format, and the drive should be in prime condition to be read by the OS installers.

Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media

Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

Why my acer e500 cannot install 64 bit window 7 it say no driver when need to choose hard disk to install

you need to install Uli sata drivers in order for your motherboard to recognize the harddrive and cd drive.

download the drivers here:

and put them on a cd or memory card, when the system prompts you that you have no harddrive, you can load the drivers from a memory card or cd however if you use a cd you will face other issues. then you will be able to install windows 7 ;)

I did it on my acer e500 and it runs good.
I didn't install the 64 bits version though but the 32 bits.

for all the people saying that his pc is too old: if the pc can run under vista, it runs better under windows 7

Sometimes the DVD drive will not open. It is fairly annoying.

Go to My Computer and right clicked on the DVD Rom drive and clicked eject. If any error appears let me know. Also try to insert a straightened paper clip into the designated hole on the CD/DVD drive casing to manually force an eject. If it is not worked replace the cables(master slave).
Thanks Good Luck
