Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Running Vista Home Premium: CD/DVD RW drive has up-to-date driver, and Device Manager reports drive is running normally, but it spins up then stops.
Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and make sure the "Shell hardware detection" is enabled and set to automatic.
Here's a FIX from Microsoft although you did not mention any errors.
Worth a try though if the first suggestion doesn't work.
