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.

Susan: According to the specs at Acer, your computer has a combo drive that writes CDs but only reads DVDs. It's not a DVD burner. You can get a USB external DVD burner and plug it in to make backups.

Safary: If that's true, you should contact Acer service about the drive trouble. If the warranty service done was to fix that problem they did not do it correctly, or they created some other problem.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Acer aspire 3680 could not load dvd driver


Let me guess...you tried to install Roxio or another burner, and then it did not work, so you uninstalled it, but now your dvd drive has disappeared. You have tried to update the drivers, but you get a message showing that you have the latest driver, but alas, no dvd drive.

Use the restore point created just prior to installing the burner software and you will be fine. I have fixed 5 Acer 3680 laptops in the last two weeks with this problem. If you want to use Roxio or another burner software, go to the Acer webpage and link from them. Peace and good luck.
