Put dvd in and it makes clicking noise and doesn't detect it.


The Clicking sound happens, when the lens which reads the cd's,dvd's move off from its original position, this happens when the particular equipment is moved or pushed. In some rare cases, when you insert a very scratched cd, dvd. This can be solved by the particular tv company technicians, or else your warranty will be void.

Try checking whether the lens works perfectly, by playing different kinds of content ( audio cd, mp3, dvd ) etc... If any works, then your lens is working perfect. Later, try cleaning the lens using the " cd lens cleaner kit ". It will be available in any computer accessories related shop.

Thank You.

NEW Acer laptop not detecting CD/DVD drive


If its under warranty take it back for repair. If irts "software related you may have to pay for repair. If hardware they will pay.

If not under warranty right click on "My Computer" go to "Properties" / "Device manager" select and expand (Click on + sign beside DVD, CD drives)
Click on the named drive if its there(If not there probably faulty drive) and uninstall / delete it.
Click on "scan for hardware changes" and it will re-install drivers.

When I Put Dvd's In My Cd Rom Drive To Play On My Laptop, It Doesn't Do Anything And Doesn't Come Up Saying There's Anything In There But It Does Make The Loading Noises Then Just Stops! Can Anyone Suggest...


CD Drives read only
COMPACT.DISKS.
DVD/CD Combo drives are meant to have support for DVDs and CDs
Of course it's not going to work! it's not compatible, either buy an external CD/DVD Drive. or replace your CD Drive with a DVD/CD Drive.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)

hi gavo,
since its still new, you still have the receipt with you right? better bring it back to where you bought it and let them check it instead, we dont like to void the warranty. :)

were you able to use it even just once? try a different cd, if you use cd in your first attempt, try dvd the next, try movie cd or audio cd, just to isolate the problem.

just post your feedback here,
