Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My mother in law has an acer aspire 3002 laptop. The drivers that enable playback of cds and dvds have suddenly disappeared! The acer website is not easy to negotiate and I begrudge paying out £30 for a years subs to a website to download drivers that I should have!! Any ideas where I can get a free driver download please? Thanks Smon.

My DVD drive in ACER Aspire 4720 not reading burnt DVDs and CDs


well look for cds that are thicker and sturdier. some low cost CDRs are too thin and/or soft that they cant handle the heat generated by the cd drive.

Acer Aspire 5050-3371 not playing CDs or DVDs


Hi,
You need to re-install The Drivers ( software to make the Device Work ) I,d suggest visiting Acers Driver Site. typing in the model number of your laptop. and searching for a Suitable Driver for CD/DVD Rom.
Operating system depending, you can right click on the device and try un-installing it. reboot the computer. and you should get a message new devive found. and give you the option to re-install the driver for it.
Unfortunately we cannot post links for you to Obtain these Drivers, But i,d look at global.Acer.com Support and Download.

My Laptop won't play Cds or Dvds


check in control panel, system device manager to see if the system can see it..if it can, and drivers are ok, then it's the actual device(those are not too sturdy usually).

Aspire 3002 Nlc note book DVD Comboo is not recognised


Hi, sorry you might need to explain a little better, but i will try. The DVD Combo drive doesnt need any drivers to work, the only thing you need is somthing like powerdvd to watch films, if the drive is not reading cds or dvds and in device manager you have a yellow tag, probably next to Primary ide its windows drivers, but if you could explain in a little more detail will be happy to help.. All the best John
