Sorry, but the technologies are not forward-compatible like that. The CD can write about 700MB of data to a 4-3/4" CD, but cannot write to a DVD. It may be the same physical size, but DVDs hold approximately 4.7 GigaBytes, or roughly 6 times MORE data and use a completely different writing technique. The only choice is to go and purchase a new DVD writer and replace the CD writer completely. With the reduction in costs lately, look for a DVD-RW (ReWritable) so you can use disks over and over again instead of one time each. It requires that you buy slightly more expensive disk, but they can be re-written 100s of times.

Upgrade of dvd rom for acer aspire 3000


Hi,

Does Windows recognize it as something else in the device manager? You probably need to install the right drivers for the drive.

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

I want to watch a dvd through normal cd rom do u know any software which allows us to


You would need to upgrade your CD-Rom drive to a DVD CD-Rom drive
Or,
you would need to rip, then convert the video file from the DVD and burn onto a regular CD. Durring this process you would also have to convert the file.



If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using fixya.com!!

Dics Drive Upgrade for Toshiba Satillate.


As far as i know thats impossible. Your optical diskdrive is made just for those speeds that you have on it. You cant change the manufacture settings and speed it upp, or make it to an dual layer disk.
Buy a new one whit the needs that u want and replace the old one. Its easy done and its not that expensive.

Good luck to you
