Hi,

Friends i have seen thousand of laptop cd/dvd rom stops working very soon. then the quesion is how you do intall your os if it was corrupted.
follow my tip and install windows7 or vista in very simple way.

c) you must know what is drive letter of your usb flash drive.
d) type DISKPART in command prompt and press enter

f) Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.

So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:

(Format process may take few seconds)

ASSIGN

g) Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).

h) Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:

D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

i) Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.

BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
J) Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.

Eject the usb drive and select first boot device usb drive or usb hdd in motherboards bios.

Installing Vista on new hard drive- CD/DVD Driver not found


Are you installing from the SONY-supplied "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, or from a "generic" Vista DVD-ROM?

The SONY disks _should_ have the correct drivers for your notebook computer.

DVD DOES NOT PLAY, BRAND NEW FROM BEST BUY ACER EXTENSA LAPTOP EX5230E-2177 WILL NOT BURN A DVD OR PLAY A MOVIE


first make sure that the drive is installed properly. I would advise you to install it from the manufacturer's site. Let me know if you need the installation files.

Also, it can help if you can let me know if it reads any other discs- like regular discs. Try several different types- burned cd and dvd discs, brand new discs, original discs etc.
If installing it doesn't help and the drive will not read any kinds of discs, you will have to return the laptop to the store where you bought it, or try to return it to the manufacturer, maybe they can replace the drive.
