Dear WARD1095

Well the first thig to do here is to take down the model number and serial number of your drive. Once you have done this, then you will need to go to
http://www.driversupdate.org
this site will enable you to scan your computer for all drivers and software that is essential to your computer's functionality.

In addition to this, it may be beneficial to go to http://www.driverguide.com
this will enable you to find your device driver for your optical drive. (DVD ROM) Registration is obligatory but only takes a few moments.

The most drastic approach in addition this is to format your hard disk and re-install windows xp. Then install all new software on the system and you should be up and running in no tme. A complete wipe re-load wil also thow up other results if a hardware problem is present. If this s the case, strip the entire system back, and query each component. As default, winxp should still load non base system device drivers in order for your optical drive to still function during install. (any basic driver/ hardware function to still allow the system to work, but at a minium level). much in he same ay that graphics cards work. (can still install on a PCI-EX) card, but will only install minimum, non specific drivers.

Well I do hope that this works for you, and if you can provide me with your model number then i will be able to findyou the user manual and the softwarethat relates to your make/ model of vendored equipment.

Hope to hear from you soon,

kind regards and yours sincerley

Hi,

No need to install the drivers for the burner.

Or

I think you mean the burning software like nero.

Or

If you mean the drive icon is not present in the my computer

You can delete the upper & lowwr filters from the registry.

I need solution for this problem immediately I installed windows 7 in my PC. after that in My PC DVD RW is not working.


Was the Windows 7 installed from a clean slate or you upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If you have upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, then this is definitely a driver problem. You can try to update the driver by going to Device Manager, check if the DVD drive is listed. Pull down the drop down list, and right click on the devices listed under DVD/CD-ROM Drives and choose Update Driver Software.
If the DVD drive came with a software bundle (e.g. Nero Burning Application) Try reinstalling these application under Windows 7 Environment.

I removed vista and put an original licenced windows xp pro but the dvd does not work and it disappeared from the bios


Vista is proprietary, you need to go out and find the correct driver for that CD-RW/DVD-ROM for that Acer PC.

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.
