SOURCE: Acer Aspire 3000 DVD/CD-RW drive

If its the DVD/RW CD/RW unit it will possibly have...
NTI CD/DVD Burner which is a part of the Arcade System .

Easy to use and stable as anything I have seen before,3
Fast n Friendly,Remembering the max ram is 2GB and
with all barrells loaded performs like a beautiful piece of art.
Also Nero is an old favourite too.
Producing your own dvds from scratch is a satifying excercise and amazing when you can see the look in everyones eyes,,,,
Yes - Impact is everything.

I found your answer,
Grab you machine and look at the symbols on the disk draw.

The device you have is a CD/RW-DVD Rom.
What this means it is a CD Writer and a DVD Reader.
This device will never burn DVDs.sorry

To write DVDs you will need to buy DVD/RW device.


I hope this helps ,please rate me thanks

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cant read DVD's and rise of nation cd

If your dvd rom isn't recognizing any dvds or maybe curtain dvds you need to download both a DVD decoder, such as Roxio, WinDVD or Cyberlink Power DVD, as well as a complete set of codecs, the best codec pack you can find at this link, make sure to download the full version. http://www.free-codecs.com/k_lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm

Good Luck =)

My cd/dvd romwont read and play pc gamed or movies


The cd/dvd driver will probably need to be replaced, first! get some rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip, now gently clean the laser lens and allow several minutes to dry, if this fails! the driver must be replaced. Go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop and refine search to CD/DVD driver.

Acer aspire 3690, my cd-rom will play movies, audio and some old games can be read but mostly refuses to read most of my game disks now, any ideas??


Try an external DVD drive that you can connect to your USB port. The drive you have in the laptop either has a dirty laser lens, which you can carefully clean with a "Q" and alcohol, or the laser itself may be going out. The drive can be replaced. You mentioned you have a cd-rom. If you can play movies (DVD) it is more likely a DVD drive instead of a cd-rom. CD-ROMs can only read data or music.

I need to find a driver for the cd dvd drive on my acer aspire 5520-5865


There's no need for a "driver" -- Windows should _directly_ support it, to let you read CD and DVD media.

However, if you want to "play" a DVD movie, you'll need to have software (either supplied by ACER or purchased online, such as PowerDVD) to play the movie.

Aspire 5515 dvd wont play sound


Does the laptop play CDs?
If so then when you start a DVD and before you play the movie, go into the audio setting and configure the speakers for laptop stereo speakers.
If you cannot hear music from the CD then check :-
1. The audio settings, volume not set to minimum and mute is not ticked (enabled)
2. Device manager - sound device is enabled and working, if not re-install the sound driver.

Acer aspire 6920 18.4 inch screen! I cant get blue ray dvds


According to the ACER Aspire 6920 specs, it does not have a Blue-ray player only DVD CD R/W drive. Therefore it cannot play blue-ray movie disks.
The specs of the DVD drive are as follows :-
Optical Storage
  • Type DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM - Integrated
  • CD / DVD read speed 24x (CD) / 8x (DVD±R) / 6x (DVD±R DL)
  • CD / DVD write speed 16x (CD) / 8x (DVD±R) / 4x (DVD±R DL)

Can play cd's but not dvd's, just a rythmic wirring sound and green activity light


Hey,

just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.

if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

may want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

let me know how that goes.
Thanks,
Ekse

My DVD not reading DVD movie CD


Is it not reading the disk or not playing DVD movies? If you put a DVD data disk and it reads, then the drive is fine. If it just wont play movies, youre missing a DVD decoder (such as PowerDVD). Try testing other DVD disks and post your findings.

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine


Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.
