Does the optical drive function?

To do so, swap in any medium and see if it runs.

1) if it runs, you're fine, it is the software problem with itune.

2) if it doesn't run, your driver may be installed wrong or maybe your optical drive is non-functional. In the case of wrong driver installation, right click my computer to properties, hardware device manager, and see if there is a question mark on the optical driver.

I hope that solves your concerns.

Please feel free to let me know the follow ups! Thanks and good luck!

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop with a Matshita cd/dvd r/rw combo (uj-850s), and it performs all funtions except read a virgin dvd. And I also cant seem to find firmware update for it anywhere on earth....


What operating system are you using? Xp? Vista? Which version of XP/Vista? Home, Pro, etc.?

Blank disks cannot be read for the simple reason that there is nothing on them to read.

If you wish to burn a disk, you need burning software, such as Nero which is a professional burning system, but also a free program such as AmoK / Ultimate CD/DVD Burner / or Sun CD/DVD burner (make sure to uncheck the ads box during install to prevent ad displays)

The above have different capabilities, but what you need is a piece of burning software in order to write to a blank disk, so depending on what you need to burn, you may choose from above, seek out other software, or purchase a burning system such as Nero.

Can you see the drive in (my computer)? What software are you using to watch DVD'S? Is this a burner or just a DVD drive? You need software to burn DVD'S and CD's. W indows has this but it is not that good. Try Nero to burn disk. Try Power DVD or another player like Divx. Windows Media player should play them if it is updated.
Make sure that you do not have auto run turned off. You will find these in the properties for your DVD drive.

To prevent the computer from freezing up, make sure you are running nothing else while you are trying to burn the disk. You can also change the programs that are starting up. Hit start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, uncheck everything, restart the computer. Then try to burn the disk. Also you can run CCleaner to repair some of your registry.

Cd burner


Hi moose,

Go to Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager. Click the + by DVD/CD-rom drives, see if your CDrom is listed. If it is, right click on it, and select Uninstall.
Reboot, and WIndows should find it, and reload it. If it doesn't show up, good chance your CDrom is dead.

Good Luck
