Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition
Computer Acer Aspire 5520G
OS Vista Home Basic
System Restored to an earlier date. Did not help.
Check to see if it is showing up in the hardware section of device manager. Click on Start - Control Panel - System - and in the left hand pane you should see Device Manager. If the CD/DVD player is showing up there then the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows may not. This could be due to incorrect or lost drivers. I would suggest going to Acer's website and downloading the most current drivers and also if there is a bios upgrade do that as well. That should correct the issue.
