Is the 'DVD-Super Multi DL Drive' on the Acer 5742 Aspire basically a DVD rewriter, or does it just play DVD's?


This Super-Multi Drive will write to dual layer DVDs (DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL) at a 4x speed. The full specs of the Acer 5742 are available here: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/2010/Acer/Aspire/Aspire5742/Aspire5742sp2.shtml .

You should be able to place a dual layer dvd in the drive and have it recognized. Windows may ask you if you want to format the disc.

I hope this helps.

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.

Can this device burn double layer DVD disk?


That would depend on the burner drive and if it has dual layer support built in. Look on the front plate of the drive tray and look for DL somewhere near the DVD letters. If you see a DL then it will burn double layer disc. You would also need to have blank Dual Layer DVD-R discs. It will not burn dual layers on a standard 4.6 GB DVD it would have to be an 8.6 GB DVD. You will also need a burning software that has Dual Layer burning support.

I have acer aspire 4520.I have upgraded to windows xp sp2. The empowering technology does not work.It says " the specified file is not found".I cannot find the empowering technology software...

5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

DVD DL Doesn't Work


Go in to the device manager and look at what is listed for your DVD burner. It should give you a make and model of the burner itself, or at least a model. Look this up on Google and see if the drive really is a dual burner or not.

The specs that I pulled for the Acer 5100 states 'dual-layer' as well, but who knows, it is possible someone didn't assemble the laptop properly. In that case, I would exchange it for a replacement if at all possible.

If you look up the make/model of the DVD burner and it is infact not dual layer, and you are unable to return/exchange the laptop, then you may have to invest in one yourself.

If the make/model does show it as dual-layer, then it may be a software issue. I don't know what version of Nero you are using, but you could test the DL capabilities with a free cd burning utility called CDBurnerXP.

To get to the control panel in Windows XP, click on "Start" right click on "My Computer", go to "Properties" then click the "Device Manager" tab then click the "Device Manager" button.

Hope this helps!
