If you open My Computer, and there is no icon for the CD/DVD drive, then your computer has a "hardware" problem. Take it to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting, and possibly for disassembly/replacement of the drive/reassembly.

DVD's won't play in my TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Diablo played fine in it, but no DVD's.


Try this...
Go to device manager right click on and un-install the DVD drive. Then restart the computer and wait for the "Found New Hardware" balloon message to disappear. That reloads the drivers. Then put in a dvd and see if it works.
Also, you may have inadvertently turned off autoplay. If so, turn it back on. See here...

Laptop wont start.


Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

The cd dvd drive spins when any disc (cd or dvd) is put in the drive, but it will not play. It won't show up in itunes, WMP, or even in the computer drive section.


If the CD unit itself appears in My computer but it's always empty (no disk in it) then the lens from the optical hear is covered in dust - clean it with a q-tip.
If not even the unit appears in My Computer then the unit's control processor is dead and you will have to replace it - a simple job but one that requires a basic experience, if you don't have it you will have to take it to a repair shop.

You computer probably has Autoplay turned off for security.
-Click the start button on the lower left and click Computer when it appears near the middle of the right column. -Look for one of the drives labeled CD or DVD, probably the D drive. Righ-click it's icon. -From the list choose Autoplay.
If Autoplay is not an option double-click on the CD or DVD drive. Look for an application called Setup and double-click it to begin setup.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

Studio 17 (1735) disc drive is not working properly (at all)!


try to boot the laptop from a boot cd (windows cd, recovery cd etc) to see if it works. to boot from cd press f12 when the laptop starts and choose boot from cd.
if it works then it's a software problem and a system restore might help.
if it doesn't it's a hardware problem. either your cd drive is incorrectly installed or it's dead again.
