Go to Start, then Control Panel, then System, then Hardware, then Device manager,
Click on the + sign next to the DVD/CD. Do you see a red X or a yellow exclamation mark?

right click on the DVD drive and select uninstall. then reboot.

Unless the drive is bad,this should help,

Dvd not working on my E-SYSTEM sorrento 1


A couple troubleshooting steps.
Power the laptop off and remove the battery. There will either be a single screw on the back of the laptop or a spring button next to the DVD tray. Push the button to pop out the DVD player or remove screw, stick a paper clip in the tiny hole next to the DVD eject button and pull the DVD drive out and then firmly push the drive back in to verify it isn't seated all the way. Now put the battery back in and power on the laptop. Enter BIOS and check through the menus and ensure the DVD drive is not disabled. If you have followed these steps. Refer to the next section.

If you answer yes to any of the following you will need to replace the drive.
  • When you press the button, the drive does not light up or open
  • When you put a disc in the drive it doesn't detect the disc.
  • The DVD drive doesn't show up in device manager or under "Computer/My Computer"


If in device manager you see a yellow ! or ? on the DVD drive you will need to restore the computer because the driver corrupted and typically you can't repair them.

Acer Aspire 5520 dvd player does not work in Windows Vista


The only solution is go into acer's driver download site and find out if your make and model supports Vista, if yes! the DVD driver should be available, if not that will be a problem.

I have a 2005 Ford Freestar Van. The DVD player just quit working, appears it may not be getting any power to it. The manual doesnt have anything about the dvd player even being in the van. I was going to...


The manual shows several fuses for the radio/tape/cd players.
It doesn't show anything for a dvd player but i would think it would use the same power feed as the other. In thepassenger compartment take a look at fuse number 5 and 11 and 20. if they are all ok then in the power distribution box under the hood look at fuse number 56, 59 and 62. Fuse number 62 is the listed as the dvd fuse. However the systems use multiple fuses so that parts of have power all the time, Such as the clock and alarm systems must have power all the time in order to work.
Now not all of the fuses I have listed may be being used but these are all the ones listed for all the different sound systems used.
If all the fuses are good you may have to remove the player and look for a manual release to open it.

Doesn't show anything on TV


I am sure that your cables are connected correctly. If they are your TV and DVD/VCR palyer has to be on the same function. i.e. aux on the newer TV's or channel 2 or 1 on the older models. THis is a easy fix and this will start you on the right track.

My cd dvd player will not play or record even though the computer shows the drives are up to date and the device is functioning properly


Try taking the battery out for 30 seconds, this powers down all the computer components and when you put the battery back in it reboots all the system back to original boot and removes any glitches.

DVD is not recordable, Acer Extensa 5420


Just put in the blank dvd without trying to burn anything to it and see
if your pc see's the blank dvd, if not find one that is recognized by your pc. After you put in a blank dvd, it should show under my computer in the drive and should be able to open it like a folder, or
windows will pop up a little window that ask's if you would like to burn anything to the dvd.

Tevion player shows BAD DISC,


Since the unit is under warranty, you can't touch anything without voiding the warranty. This problem could be as simple as a dirty lens. Bring the unit in for repair under warranty.

Can't get my iPod to charge or even show up on my computer


Hi there! Often, when an iPod does this it just needs to be 'reset'. To do this, turn on the iPod, and then press and hold the center button and the top ('menu') button just above it. You'll have to hold these two down together for anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds. When you see the screen go dark, you can let go. At that point, you should see the Apple logo appear as the iPod reboots. Take this opportunity to reboot your computer... this might help out as well. When both the computer and iPod have rebooted, go ahead and plug the iPod in and see if you get a response from iTunes. I'm afraid this is not "the" solution, necessarily... there are a number of potential fixes for the issue you're describing, but this is the first thing that I would try. The next thing to try would be to go into your control panel, into the add/remove software program and completely uninstall iTunes. Then reinstall iTunes, reboot the computer, and try again. Best of luck!
