CD ROM DRIVER


Optical drives (cd/dvd) for the most part don't requires drivers in the sense other hardware does. That's why they work during boot.

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

The great thing about Optical Drives is their standardization, and you normally don't require a driver for initial setup. It is not seeing the drive or the disc is not bootable. Or, both.
You need to make sure it has power. Then check BIOS by pressing an F key noted during boot (F2). The drive must be listed or this is your point of failure. You may have to physically reseat the drive. Next make the CD\DVD first boot and try again. Check disc on a different PC to insure it is bootable.

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

CD Driver not being recognized, went into device manager and under device status it says, "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39)


this is a tough one. I found this at acer:Optical Drive
8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive or DVD/CD-RW Combo
(varies by model)

The bad news is the part where it says varies by model. You will need the exact model of the drive to get the proper driver for it. My advice is to take it to an Acer shop and ask them to identify the cd drive for you.
