    i used acer arcade and now the cd/dvd drive doesnt show up in the device manager or my computer section like its not there the drive doesnt work at all

  • foxed one Aug 03, 2008

    My Acer Arcade opens to show six functions which I should be able to select by clicking on them:

    'Cinema' 'Album' 'Video' 'Music' 'Burner' and 'Settings'

    All but 'Burner' are as they have always appeared, but the 'Burner' button is now not highlighted as available, and does not respond when I click on it.

I have an hp using windlows vista and when I try to insert a cd the door on the dvd/cd writer won't open, either manually or when i try to burn a cd


This is the issue with your CD/DVD Drive. Better you change the hardware. Other wise take one pin and push in the hole which you can see in CD/DVD drive. That time the tray will open.

Teac DW-224E CD-rw/ DVD rom in Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-405


Hello konagold, Yes there may be some ways to test it. Let's try the following. When you open your laptop, open the cd rom's tray and check to see where the lens mechanism is positioned. Normally it should be near the main central motor. Try to turn off the laptop, but leave the tray opened. When the laptop is turned off, use one one hand to move the lens assembly away from the main motor. Move it to the middle of the distance from the center to the edge. Carefull not to touch the lens when you do this. Now place a bootable cd (like the ones that come with your operating system or anything else you can find) and start the laptop back again and instruct it to boot from the cd-rom. It should make it try to boot from there. If this fails, the cd-rom is indeed damaged and most likely will need to be replaced. You may try to clean the lens assembly but I can't be sure this will help, based on your problem. Please run these instructions first, then reply to me in order to see what's next to do. Bogdan

When i want to burn a cd my burner opens and closes by itself and


It can happen sometimes. You can try holding the tray while it is open, insert a blank CD-R and close it. Now you can use it for burning.

Can't burn pass over 78 min on my burner


CDs can only store 800 Mb, which is exactly 78 minutes. If you need to burn more data than that onto a disk then you will need to burn DVDs with a DVD burner.
Please rate, Thanks!

Blinking green light on 1 tray


You could have a faulty drive.
To open the tray, you need a paper clip, straighten it and place it in the small hole below the disc tray, push it in and the tray wull pop out slightly, remove paper clip and pull the tray fully out with your fingers.
Then try to close and open the tray with the push button, if it does not work you need to replace this drive with a new one.

CD tray opens and won't stay closed for burning


Sounds like an issue with the contact behind the button on the drive. How old is the drive? Replacements are cheap these days.
