Is it just that one disk that the drive has problems with? If so, you may have a defective disk -- it may be scratched or damaged. You can try cleaning it and reinserting it to see if that helps.

If the drive won't read any disk, then you'll need to either get a new drive or get your drive repaired. You can try store-bought DVD drive cleaners, but these can be hit or miss.

Acer 5534 won't go into recovery mode using boot disk. I get a disk read error, press ctrl+alt+del then reboots to black screen.


Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Are there any noises coming from the pc when performing the recovery? Was it doing this previously? Most disk read errors point to the hard drive.

I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

wma files won't be read, only mp3 files, in my experience. My 512 mb SD card works, but it won't read my 8 gb SDHC card. I suspect it can't manage SDHC (high capacity) cards. I haven't tested yet, because as it turns out, neither can my computer... I think I'll fall back to a flash drive.

Mac doesn't read the drive. Time Machine reads 'delayed' then 'failed' because it can't read drive. Won't backup. Drive doesn't show up on screen.


- Open the disk utility application found in the applications folder, then open the utilities folder

- See if it detects the LaCie drive by looking on the right hand side where it lists all the available drives including your optical drive

- If it is just greyed out you might only need to re-format the drive or possibly repair the disk.

- If it does not appear in this list the drive has most likely failed and is not economically repairable
