Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer Slimtype DS8A1P DVD burner firmware

ACER sends me to NTI back full circle looking for the NON-EXIST ANT driver. Is there a legit reference to some code I can poke the darn drive with to make it play nice> with the option to back out if it proves useless? whimper.

    Fractional clarification: NTI produces the backup sware bundled with the Acer System. Further study suggests that the DVD burner is manufactured by LITEON as an oem part; this allows deniability for their bastard progeny. ACEHOLE computers links to NTI's site for inquiries re the burner, upon arrival you are redirected back from NTI to the original page at ACEHOLE that points to NTI. Hall of mirrors repeat until irritated.
    Has any anyone had this pleasure?

Hmmm..who's NTI?

if you go to control panel, and look under system, you'll see under the DVD, the actual number of the drive. Use that in google, and add the word 'driver' afterwards, and you may have more success.

got backup for your Acer?

    sounds like it's time for another approach on this. How about a new drive with true compatibility?

Dvd maker on aspire 3690


Hi Artmovements,

Well first off you need to get Acer to send you the disk... you are entitled by law to have it as it is not pre-installed.

However, I think the point here is not if you have the software, but if you have the right hardware.

You see, all computers can burn CD/DVD IF they have a DVD burner fitted. It sounds to me like you have a CD/DVD Combi-reader fitted which will let you listen to CD/DVD and will also burn CDs....but WILL NOT let you burn a DVD.

I checked the web for specs for your computer and all I could find seemed to back this up.... however if you can tell me what the computer says is fitted that would help.
You can find that info out by either looking in the manual it came with or by looking in your device manager and that will tell you what the CD/DVD is.

let me know ok... but I really do believe that you will find you have a combi unit and not a DVD burner. If so you need to buy one... and may I suggest you look at an external USB one, like the LG Super Multi...its good for price and is a nice fast and well made unit.

Good Luck and I hope this has helped you.

First try downloading the optical drive firmware update and installing it, then try updating your BIOS the same way. Often, this problem is resolved by restoring the operating system as well.
