Not sure what OS you have, have you tried removing the drive in the device manager, and then restarting your machine to see if your OS reports new hardware? Or have you tried removing the new memory and restarting the system to see if you problem goes away? I might try this first.

Was anything else attempted or unplugged when installing the new memory?

I went to burn a cd and it says my burner or software is not found


Remove the device in device manager and re-boot the computer and let it detect and install the drivers again. This usually fixes the problem unless the drive itself is bad.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

Media player cannot detect burner anymore


Check the Manufacturer's website for a Download of the CD Drive Drivers. If you have a Software recovery application on your computer (Many HP and Dell Computers have this) the drivers may already be on your system, you may just need to re-install them. If re-installing the driver's doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you, unless your drive has gone bad.

My laptop can play cd & dvd but can only burn cd and not cvd


If you detect that your driver is missing, I'd first open my Control Panel, and open your systems icon.  From there you'll go to the Hardware Tab and find Device Manager.  Inside the Device manager lists all of your computer devices.  Look for one called DVD/CD rom drives and check to see if it has a triangluar explanation mark next to it.  If it does, then you can right click on the cd's name, and choose update driver. When you open that a window will appear asking you a question about finding the driver.  Choose yes this time only, and click next.  Then click install software automatically, and click next.  Windows will look for the most current driver for that file.   The other option is to go to Acer and download the driver from their site and install it.
Hope this helps.
