    The drive is *sometimes* present in the devices, but lately, it is more often not present. As it has just magically appeared, I am running a virus scan on the drive. I am waiting to see what happens and will update with results when the scan is completed.

Hello
Head of to the Acer website.Put in your model and serial # of your laptop. Find and download the cd or dvd drivers and install them on your laptop.

Also have you done the windows updates? Usually this will solve the problem.

The boot priority is been changed to CD ROM.
Change it back to Hard drive.
If that doesnt resolve, replace the HDD.

My dell inspiron 1521 cd rom player is not working


The driver needs to be reloaded. It may still be in the Dell Utilities Program, the Dell Drivers File, or it can be downloaded from Dell's website. Go to Control Panel/System/Hardware Manager and drop down to CD Rom Devices. Right click on your product and click on drivers/update driver. If your device isn't listed there go to install hardware in control panel. You might want to swap the CD rom unit with a known good one. On three occasions I've had the CD Drivers be OK, but the Windows drivers were corrupted. Had to reload the operating system completely to make it all work again.

Cd rom


go back to device manager. right click the cd rom name in device manager and click uninstall. right click on an empty area in device manager and click on scan for hardware changes. if this doesnt fix the issue try booting from a windows disk. if you are unable to do this than it may be a physical problem with the device. you may also want to try doing a system restore (if it is win me or higher) by going to start - accessories - system tools - and then system restore. follow the prompts from there.
