I am trying to rip cds onto computer but it is saying i need cd drive is this something i have to buy or does it need activated


Hi. I think if your machine has no DVD or an Optical drive installed then you have to purchased one because you could RIP any CD or DVD without an Optical Disc Drive. Hope This Helps

Fix it yourself heres how: purchase a replacment dvd drive heres an example of one you could purchase that will fit your model http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ACER-EXTENSA-6602-DVR-K15RA-DVD-RW-LAPTOP-DRIVE-7865_W0QQitemZ330344511659QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_LaptopAccessories_LaptopDrives?hash=item4cea1138ab#ht_1313wt_732
Most dvd drives from any acer extensa will fit your model with the relevent bracket, which you will already have connected to your broken one.
ok now veiw the service manual here Service Manual and go to page 57 chapter 3 (67/142) here you will find the section called removing the optical drive module. its really simple just follow the instructions and pictures carefully.
Hope this Helps! Please Rate!

I have purchased a tsst ts-t633a external dvd +-RW drive to link with an acer aspire a0531 netbook. The drive will read and write CDs but not recognise DVDs. Can anyone help?


You need a software made for DVDs which you can use for the CDs to.
To read DVDs (and CDs) use Power DVD.
To burn DVDs (and CDs) use Nero DVD. You may purchase them almost to any PC shop.

This is just an example. You may find some free software on the Internet but if you are not used with this I suggest to ask a friend to help you or to buy a software as I have already said.

I have an acer extensa 5420 and the disc drive will not play cds or dvds


Hi, your pc might have a hardware problem issue.
The disc drive might have gone bad already and need to be replace it. If the laptop is still under warranty, I would go ahead and consult with the manufacture for replacement.
yourcan verify if the window is cause the problem by right click on My Computer icon on your desktop and select Manage and Device Manager. If you can see the DVD/CD ROM drive status with Plus sign next to it, click on the plus sight and you should see your dvd/cd rom drive install on your Laptop. This mean window is reconizing the device but the device doesn't read the disc because it has a problem.
Hope this help.

I've got a new Acer Aspire 7720G Blu Ray laptop.I'd just installed Itunes and was downloading some cds onto it when it suddently decided not to recognise anymore cds. further still, it does no longer...


It sounds like the drive has failed. Contact ACER and they will replace it under their warranty.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate at fixya.

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".
