My acer aspire 5517 dvd does not work


Ask yourself the following questions
1. When did I last use the drive? see (a)
2. Does the disk work in another drive? (b)
3. Can I read other DVD's
4. Is the disk an original or a home made disk
(a) If you have not used it for a long time or for ever, it may be a dirty lens. To Clean this, you should use a DVD lens cleaner, the best type are those that come with a spray bottle of solution that you spray on the cleaning hairs on the bottom side of the DVD. follow the instruction.
(b) If the disk works in another drive, that could indicate there is an issue with your drive - either dirty or faulty try cleaning it
If you have tried this and still you are unable to read a disk, check with another computer that you can read the disk? see (d)
Listen to the laptop after closing the disk draw with the DVD in it, you should hear the drive spin up, and in most cases you can hear the drive move as the lens moves to read the disk. if you are not hearing both of these you may have a faulty drive. If you turn off your laptop and turn it over, look at the screws on the bottom of the laptop and you will notice one near where the DVD goes in that looks different to the rest, this is the DVD drive locking screw, if you have a friend that has the same machine or similar you can swop the drives and test, this will confirm if the drive is faulty or if it is something else.
DVD drives normally fail through being bent (when being pushed in or dropped) over use or lack of use, the latter is due to dust and is easily fixed as above.
(c) if you can read other disks in your drive, chances are there is a fault with the disk not the DVD drive, look for finger prints, scratches and clean if necessary. If it is readable in another drive and it is yours, make a copy and use that.
(d) If it is an original disk, check for scratches and marks etc. if it is home made like a data disk or music disk etc. Burn another if you can.

My hp 4520 probook is not picking up the cd/dvd drive, no type of cd is visible in "Computer" folder or accessible. It does not automatically pick up the cd/dvd and ask usual functions like "open with"...


no OS stated, no CD stated, but asks...
there are vast types of CD disks, not one stated by you
what is ? whats on it , what does the label say is it home made CD
non of that can we know, and is KEY to the best answer.
for autorun to work 4 things must be good.
1: the CD drive shows up in device manager, and be OK.
2: the CD must be good. what is it, not stated by you. yet.
3: the autorun feature turn on via the My computer explorer.
4: the CD must have an autorun file, many dont.

so lets forget AUTORUN, (must walk first then run, LOL)
first as always it the DRIVE must be pulled in and not bad.
2nd the Device manager must show it as must next it shows, up
in Diskmanagment and last must show up in My Computer.
or in W10 that is now called. THIS PC.
Microshaft changed this name for local explorer 4 times. for kinks.
and sux that, having to tell that.

sure seen this 1000s of times.
and all ways from sunday , you name it ive fix it,
even bad media or media from China it this pure trash.

lets say the Device manager, shows the drive.
what to do next? well that is easy
go to walfart and buy a music disk
this is called a CD-DA disk.
this disk works on all optical drives made.
if you see it in MY computer and click it , it will play.
music. as designed to do .

one other thing to do us load the Probook drivers from HP
on the PC, matching what drive you have,
mine is a DVD drive, upgraded. and can burn DVD-R.
if you have windows install disk put that in,
now.
you can see files now for the first time if the CD is a DVD
and the drive is a DVD drive, you see fails.
if the MS orHP disk is DVD and the LT only has CD drive
its hopeless.
if you have modern drive you can read most files.
even MP3., WAV music
and watch movies on DVD.
if you upgrade to BRD, blue ray drive you can run BR movies.

Older cd/dvd drives many not be able to see or run
any burned drives, the first ones could not do that.
like DVD-r or DVD+r home burned disks.

again see if a real store bought music disk works (CD-DA)
if that works good move up to more complex disks and test.
if not the DVD drive is dead, or the drivers do not match your drive.
to match any drive.
remove it and read the number on it.
it has a tag.

so you said all type but do tell if it is a store bought CD first.
for music, not a burned disk by you or others.
a disc from a store, real, music and not scratched up.

got this one? there are many types offered and used,

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks


Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

HI when i put disk in cd rom drive the computer only reads for about 3 seconds and then the message says insert a disk..my son has been burning a lot of disks lateluy and not sure why it broke so soon,only...


Loading new device-drivers will not help.
In the first few seconds, the drive is trying to read the first few blocks of data from the media, to see if it is a "data" or "music" or "blank" CD. If nothing can be read (dead laser?) then you get the "insert a disk" message.

> do I need a new unit?

Yes; spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

I had to download all kinds of drivers to get my computer to do basics like viewing movies hearing music and finally burn music now i learned i can only save data(lots of songs at one time) or make a cd on...


cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,

My disk drive is not working i am trying to down load a new program and when i put the disk in it will read it and then error appears


Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.

Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.

Sorry by bad english.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.

Disc driver not reading discs


Can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. Use CD/DVD cleaning disk
3. Disk is recorded in higher speed than your driver can read (for instance reading speed is 16, but disk is recorded on 24).
4. DVD drive is damaged or not connected properly.
Good Luck

The drive for the CD keeps saying not accessable


Hi,
I don,t think this is a Driver Problem.
More likely to be that the Disk your trying to read, is not supported by the Drive Itself.
Certain DVD Drives, only support certain types of Media. Either DVD- Or DVD+.
Try using different disks in the drive. music cds. DVD Movies et,c.
Usually you,ll get an error warning. **No drivers are installed for This Device**
