Acer Aspire Netbook without external DVD/CD rom How to Load CD


This will work on any model or make of net-book or Laptop enabling you to load CD's or DVD s with software onto your net-book laptop especially good when the CD/DVD drive has stopped working or is non existent, there are a few prerequisites before you can carry out this operation.
1:You must be in a networked environment in your home/workplace
2;One of the networked computers must have a CD/DVD ROM available
3:The computers must have been linked in a home or a small office network
4: Printers and sharing must also be activated in that network


Method is as follows:-
On the Work-group/Home network computer with CD/DVD ROM click on Start then my computer and look for CD/DVD ROM icon.
Right click on the icon then click sharing and security enable sharing and security then restart this workstation , You will then see the shared hand icon underneath this icon representing it is a shared item after restart to confirm it is shared.

On the laptop/net-book look in my network places you will see the CD/DVD ROM available to you now all you need to do is place in the work-group computers CD/DVD ROM the required software disk and there you have your problem solved without the expense of purchasing an external CD ROM
Operate now your Net-book/Laptop with available CD/DVD icon and double click it or right click and explore choice is yours.
Look at following Pictures

I hope this explains how to do it if you have further problems let me know
Should you not have at least the above 4 listed items at the top of the page then this method wont work .I will publish another method soon for those people that have no network and only have a single net-book/Laptop with no CD capability

Dell studio 1537 slot load dvd drive when cd is iserted there is a clicking and whirring sound and cd is ejected immediately


Hi,

This is already a mechanical problem on dvd drive. Try upgrading optical dvd drive firmware from Dell's support website. Then, download and install IMG BURN. Run img burn. The software will perform a test. If the problem persists, have your optical dvd drive replaced.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

My dell insprion 1520 wont go past boot screen it stars then goes to a black screen that says start up repair or start windows normally but when i click star up repair nothing happens then i pick start...


Place your windows cd/dvd in the tray and boot to the cd. When asked if you want to install windows, there will be a repair option further down towards teh bottom, or you will be asked to click R like before. The repair only works if the cd is in the tray.

My cd/dvd drive is not working.


You could reinstall the CD/DVD drive software, but it sounds like the CD/DVD drive is faulty. You'll need to replace the drive.

DVD/CD Rom no longer reads cd or dvd - restore drive


Here's a Fixya:

How old is the notebook? There is 3 possibilities to get it fixed:

1. It might be the CD you're trying. Did you try another CD? or DVD to see if it does the same?
-If yes you might have the read/write head dirty and all you have to do is buy a lens cleaner follow the instructions and clean the drive. This is worth a try.
- If you are referring to CD's that you are BURNING with the same drive and the drive would not read it. Then most probably you did not get a brand of CD's / DVD's which are suitable for your drive. Check your drive's laptops manual to see the reccomended media.

2. Upon doing this check if you installed any software which might affect the drive. Such programs include. ASPI dirvers Daemon Tools copiers such as Nero and Alcohol 120% or others such as Clone CD. If so uninstall the offending program and reboot to see what happens. Sometimes even games might cause the problem.

3. Is the PC / Laptop old? As i did not have any details. And if it made any "funny noises" most probably its a hardware problem and it compromises reliability so if you tried all the above. You best bet is to check for a replacement drive. They do not cost much.

Hope that this Fixya helped you in any way.

Hi,

the yellow exclamation mark, states that the device is not functioning correctly.
options are:-

1:) go to the manufacturers website, and see if you can download a driver for this.
2:) try uninstalling the device, reboot and see if the device manager, finds new hardware, if so reinstall the device drivers.
3:) eject or remove the device, re-insert ( possible dirty-bad-loose Connection.
