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......

Acer Aspire 6930 won't play Blu Rays


Your DVD is not Blue Ray capable. You would need to purchase a Blue Ray DVD player for your laptop, just having the software does not allow you to read them.

RE ACER ASPIRE 5735 No sound on DVD


You need to play DVDs through Acer Arcade. To do this you can turn off autoplay (use help function), or assign Acer Arcade to automatically play DVDs. If you still want to use Windows Media Player to play your DVDs you must uninstall Acer Arcade.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)
