Mojahidulisi,

You could have a dirty laser lense. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4119308-clean_lense_cd_or_dvd_player which will walk you through the process.

If this does not solve your problem I would try reinstalling the driver for the CD ROM. The driver should be on the disks which came with the computer. The process is basically insert the disc and follow the instructions to reinstall the driver for the CD ROM. This may require a restart of the computer.

In the unfortunate case where neither of the two suggestions work, you will have to install a new CD ROM. They are not that expensive anymore. In fact you may want to upgrade to a DVD/CD burner. There are many sites to get them from. I like to use http://www.newegg.com . They are easy to work with, have good prices and an excellent return policy.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating!!

The problem with my LG HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-H23N is that it can read a vcd but it cannot jus read the dvd. It will insist on insert disc when you put a dvd in it, and yet I have all the power dvd software...


Combo drives have 2 lasers inside of them. An IR laser to read CD/VCD and a red laser to read DVD. It sounds like your laser to read DVD discs is dirty or has developed a fault. A replacement drive would be your best option as they are now very cheap and it will resolve the issue quickly.
Hope this helps,

Dvd disc is not working


You likely do not have a DVD-Rom. Check the front of the DVD and be sure that it says DVD-ROM on it. If it does not you may consider contacting Acer to upgrade it.

Dvd rom


I'm assuming you're using Windows... Try downloading the most recent Media Player, or install any DVD Video player. Possibly the one that came with your Drive.

Hope that helps..
