It is unclear to me whether your system will support a DVD burner. This is something that is influenced by the BIOS of a PC.

I found two places where your model is discussed, the first would seem to imply that the 3680 will support it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t264099-acer_aspire_3680_could_not_load_dvd

The 2nd , from: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-3680-2682-Aspire/dp/B000UHXK8C

upgradeable to 2 GB DVD-Combo optical drive CD and DVD-ROM compatibility and lets you burn up to 700 MB of data on CD-R/RWs for easy backups

doesn’t seem to indicate that it can be added.

Look at your manual to see if your machine has a flash BIOS that can be upgraded. If so, it would be wise to go to the Acer website and download the latest BIOS version before you plan on adding a DVD burner.

How can I find the driver to the DVD-player on a Acer ASPIRE M5800 with a dual-layer DVD burner ?


You shouldn't need a driver it's just generic DVD optical drive. Are you able to read any discs? Is the issue with burning or watching DVD videos?

Will an IDE DVD Burner work on my Acer Aspire E380 desktop. The hard drive is a SATA but the burner looks like an IDE and has belt cables. I need to replace my DVD burner and not sure what type of burner...


Yes, all you need is a IDE (Pata) to IDE (Sata) converter.

If you're replacing it, just make sure you get one with the correct interface, judging by what you sat SATA.

Will a SATA DVD Burner work in my Acer aspire 380 Desktop?


Hi

Thank you for your query

The answer is yes and no

No in the sense that you only have one IDE controller which is currently feeding your CD/DVD drive and the other is 1 SATA controller that is going to your hard drive HOWEVER yes in the sense if you purchase a sata splitter for the drive and a sata splitter for the power you could power both the SATA burner and Hard drive off the main cable.

This is not recommended and you do so at your own risk

I hope this has been useful

How do you swap out the screen on a aspire 3680?


This is not an easy task, and the replacement must be EXACTLY for the aspire 3680, which can be just as expensive as a new computer.

Only a qualified tech should do it for you, and it will take about an hour.
