    my dvd/cd drive on my acer aspire 5315-2153 laptop will not open or play a dvd---I remeber an improper shut down and an error notice that I did not write down--is this a software problem?

    Sir, I am having Acer 5000 Laptop. When I place any CD / DVD in the DVD ROM, only the light flickers without any action. I have enquired about this to my friend and he said that if the lens were dislocated, then this sort of problem may arise and added that he doesn't know the solution for this. Can you please help me.

    regards

Pull the power plug, let it stop spinning, and then re plug it in. See if that helps eject it.

Cd drive not working


Try cleaning the head with a burst of clean air from a compressor. Be careful not use air with oil or water mixed into it. Sometimes, with the mere blowing of air from your mouth would clean the lens.

It wont record on 16xdvd+r discs? what is the properdisc


  • Media Type that the unit will play CD , DVD , CD-R , SVCD , CD-RW , DVD+R , DVD-R , DVD+RW , DVD-RW , DVD-ROM , Video CD
  • Media Format PAL , NTSC
  • Recordable Media DVD+R , DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
  • I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
  • I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
  • It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Invalid disk


I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.

Display says "LOCKED", won't eject disk, all other functions work. Need unlock procedure.


Had the same problem. Found an answer digging around and it worked: Press the STOP button and the OPEN button at the same time. Hold for about 10 seconds and it UNLOCKS.
I even went back to Bestbuy and they had no clue. But it worked!
Good luck.
