  • Anonymous Jan 12, 2009

    I downloaded the update too and it said it didn't install properly, now when i go to open up acer arcade deluxe I can't play blu-ray movies. It just says that error in program. Pissed cuz the only reason i spent extra 200 bucks on this laptop was for the bluray drive now I can't even play em. I downloaded powerdvd 8 but its all trial versions.

    I have the same problem, when installing the update it cameup with errors. This has stopped it playing blu ray.

    I have also done a system restore but this has not helped.

Ok....I have the same problem...Acer Arcade Deluxe can't read any of the new blu-ray discs coming out after the first of April.....

I've been in contact with Acer Support by email....and they can't help us....well they're not.....I did everything they asked....Factory restore....which is the stupidess idea.....the program needs an upgrade...and its not by reinstalling the older version that it will work....any way....after 12 emails...they told me to call Acer support...and I didnt get the chance to speak with anyone...the computer said that my serial number was not supported by their phone service and i should trying contacting by email.....

Vicius circle going on.....

Anyway...everyone who bought Acers with a Blu-ray player in it...all got screwed up big time....they stop selling them in stores..and Acer Arcade Deluxe has been discontinued by Cyberlink Corps. there is nothing we can do....the only way this could be fixed....Acer would have to buy everyone a new software that read blu-ray discs like Power DVD 9 Ultra...thats sells for more than a 100$....

BTW I got my notebook 4 months ago...1000$ and already i cant read blu-ray.....

Go to acer arcade deluxe

Select "region code"
Select "region B" for the UK

Important Note!:
You can only change your region !!! 5 !!!! times!
that is 5 times!
I am totally stressing this.....5 times!

You may have to do this a second time so your computer locks on to this region code.
If you watch an american blu-ray vid, on the fifth change of the region code your computer locks to this region !FOREVER!

I have an Aspire 3680 Acer laptop and it has Acer Arcade bundled with the other software on the laptop. I am not able to view DVDs on the laptop using Acer Arcade. Please help!

"Installing other playback software affects the codecs Acer Arcade needs to playback the disc properly. I suggest you reinstall Arcade and see if the playback in Arcade clears up. Here are the steps to do this:

To restore a driver or application that was preinstalled on your computer from the factory, you need to run Acer eRecovery, here are the steps:
1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program.

Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.

2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.

3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers

4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose driver or applications.
7. In the list choose the item you wish to install
8. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
9. The system may restart when installation is complete

Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary. "
