Try to re install the dvd programs and try also to clean the dvd head maybe there is a dust cover the lens of the dvd. Use dvd cleaner but if still not working try to clean it manually .If you can open the cover of the dvd clean the head lens by smooth cotton cloth or cotton bud don't use any liquid to avoid more damage of the lens. But if still not working i suggest that you need to buy a new dvd.

    You don't mention in your question that you bought your laptop last march only. And according to you since you bought it the dvd never worked. Why you can't send or returned it to the computer store repair or replace the defected dvd because it is under warranty.
    Anyway thanks for the poor rating

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

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.

I cannot figure out how to bring up my dvd player. i like to watch movies, but i dont know how to get it installed. i hope you can help me. i have an acer aspire 5315-2698. thank you very much.


Usually when you insert the DVD you should get an autoplay menu that asks which program you want to use to play the DVD (such media player etc)
Acer usually has a bundled software that allows you to watch DVD movies it could be called WinDVD ,PowerDVD choose that program to play the film.

Replace a cd/dvd drive on my Laptop


Not possible at all. To install XP or Vista again, you need a CD/DVD drive working. (or) Contact Aspire(or local technician) if they can ship a XP/Vista pre-installed Hard-disk.

Try to reload the operating system using disk/Alt+F10 first and try to burn again.
If this is still not working. it probably your dvd rom is bad.
