You have to manually download the latest drivers from the Manufacturer and then point Vista where it is when the New Hardware wizard tries to install it.

Or your best bet is to go to Acer's support site and download the Driver for your DVD drive.

How can I find the driver to the DVD-player on a Acer ASPIRE M5800 with a dual-layer DVD burner ?


You shouldn't need a driver it's just generic DVD optical drive. Are you able to read any discs? Is the issue with burning or watching DVD videos?

I need to know if my DVD Drive can burn dual layer Discs. The Discs are DVD+R DL and my dvd drive is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200A ATA. Thanks


Hi anternidrumm,

According to the site below, the drive can burn dual layers discs:

"The 20x DVD multi writer opens up new dimensions for flexible read and write functions. This high-performance DVD/CD-burner is able to read your DVDs at a speed of 16x and CDs at 48x. It also brings fascinating dynamics into play when writing your blank disks. Now it can even write DVD-R DL two layer media at 12x, while reaching a speed of up to 20x for DVD+R and DVD-R. DVD+R9 and DVD+RWs are processed at 8x and DVD-RWs at 6x. And DVD-RAM can be recorded with up to 12x DVD speed. So how fast can it burn my CDs, you might ask? Even here, with speeds of 48x (CD-R) and 32x (CD-RW), it’s at the top of its class."

Hp dual layer dvd burner with light scribe doesnt recognize the dual layer disc as dual layer


You may have to install some kind of DVD burner software such as Nero burning ROM to burn dual layer DVDs. the default windows CD burner does not recognize dual layer disks. You can also use this free software for burning dual layer disks

Acts like a Player/CD burner


I have an IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (52x32x16) that has burned well over 300 cd/dvd' sense 2004 when I bought it. In 2006 or 7, an update was given to it via memorex sight - I was told to keep a copy of the dn ld, for it can't be undone and became "IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (523216)AJ___NWK____\5&265FB54&0&000" MODEL - I got it on sale from Fry's Elec. - It seems that it was indeed a 1 way ticket - and it is time to retire the old work horse anyway - Quite happy with your products and getting me another. PS - I don't think the upgrade did any justus

Want to make backup disc for my laptop & can't find a single person who can tell me what disc to use - please help. Do i use DVD R or DVD-R. Everyone seems to tell me that i can use either, but there's...


You can use DVD - or + media, it doesn't matter which. When recordable DVD's were just emerging, DVD - was used more for video and + for data for compatability reasons. In this day and age, 99.99% of DVD recorders are compatable with both. There is no benefit or drawback to using either. Keep in mind R media is recordable once while RW media can be erased and re-recorded.

One thing to keep an aya on is the dual layer thing. If you use a dual-layer disc you will need a burner that supports dual-layer and a reader (if need be) that supports dual-layer discs. Most newer DVD recorders and readers will work with dual-layer discs. The benefit to dual-layer is storing around 9 gigabyte of data verses storing around 4 gigabytes on a regular DVD.

Here is another suggestion for backups. Want to create your own backup Restore CDs? This is useful if you don't want to re-install and re-configure anything. If the computer goes down, just put in the discs and it will be just like you never left it when you created the backups. For this, you would need to use a product called Symantec Ghost. It is a part of the Symantec's Norton SystemWorks or something similar to that. I've used Ghost on hundreds of cases.

Hope this helps!

Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,
