Can you see the drive in (my computer)? What software are you using to watch DVD'S? Is this a burner or just a DVD drive? You need software to burn DVD'S and CD's. W indows has this but it is not that good. Try Nero to burn disk. Try Power DVD or another player like Divx. Windows Media player should play them if it is updated.
Make sure that you do not have auto run turned off. You will find these in the properties for your DVD drive.

Acer aspire 5315 fails to recognise disc when inserted.


The dvd unit has a lens that is used to read the disks - if this lens is dirty or defective the disks aren't recognized. Clean the lens using a cleaning disk that you can buy at every IT shop. If this doesn't help then you must replace the entire dvd unit - you will have to take your Acer to a repair shop.

When I put a cd or dvd in the drive computer does not recognise there is a drive at all it is an acer 5315


consider to replace your dvd rom, because maybe it caused the dvd or cd cant read the cd or your dvd, maybe it caused the optic (head) of your optical drive is weak because of thr dust or dirty, before you replace your optical drive you can try to clean the optic using dvd or cd cleaner

Hi, the dvd/cd drive doesn't work in my acer 5315, can you pleace help me.


SOLUTION 1

Try removing the drive, clean the contact point with something useful and re-inserting it back into the system will make it work.

SOLUTION 2

If solution 1 does not work out try getting a new cd/dvd drive and replace the former.

Are you able to read CD's and DVD's using the Optical Drive ?If yes, then it may be a problem with the lens in the drive.It can also be an issue with the software that you are using to burn Cd's ( like Nero ).If you are not able to Read and write Cd's or DVD's and the Optical drive isnot listed in " My Computer" then it can be either a driver issue or registry filters issue.Let me know abt this

DVD drive in acer aspire 5315 not working


best option would be getting from acer itself, they should have spareparts for your laptop, or you can bring the drive itself to your local computer shop so that you could compare the dimension and specs..

Hope it helps!

My acer 5315 laptop dvd does not work,when i put a dvd says unable to detect a dvd device on your computer.


Does it read CD's..? Does it only fail on DVD's?

Try installing new firmware, try physically reseating the DVD drive. Try unistalling and reinstalling the device through Device Manager.

If everything fails still, then you have a bad DVD drive and will have to get a new one.

Troubleshooting helps......

you can try uninstalling your drive and then reboot so that when you turn it back it will go thru the found new hardware wizard. if that doesn't work you will probably have to find the drivers for it from the manufactures website hope this helps

Acer aspire 5315 laptop cd/dvd drive stop working like there was none


This will be one of two things, 1- a driver glitch, you will need to uninstall the drivers for the cd/dvd drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. This will fix it if it's a driver problem. You can also try any updated driver utilities, or patches for the drive from Acer's support site. 2- the cd/dvd drive has failed and needs replaced. These are basically plug and play devices, they either work or they don't, so a majority of the time when the machine stops recognizing the drive, it's because the drive has malfunctioned. Unfortunately, these drives are considered sealed units and replacement parts aren't available.

Cd/dvd drive problem


Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...
