I tried uninstalling the driver and installing the one picked by windows ans still, finds the drive unit but cannot read any disc. Is this common and is there a solution?

SOURCE: My Philips DVD 8820 Drive does not read any discs.

This can happen if the CD you place in the drive might not be readable or it is corrupt.
Or your Drive needs to updated with firmware update.
check with your manufactures website for updates.

Purchase a new (or used) disk-drive that is compatible with your Acer notebook.
Remove the current disk-drive, and set it aside.
Connect this "alternate" disk-drive, and install Windows onto it.
Then, test the CD/DVD drive -- if it still gives problems, then you have a "hardware" problem with the CD/DVD drive, and trying to make any "configuration" changes within Windows will have *NO* effect.

Make sure the disk is for version 2.5 if you are using Vista. You can download it from the web.

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.

Upgrade to vista ultimate


If you have a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate, you can just insert the DVD when you logged in your laptop and go to Computer(My Computer) and lauch the installer for Windows on DVD icon (Double Click DVD icon). It will give you the main window for installing Windows and along the way, you should find an Upgrade option. Click that one and it will install windows Ultimate on your system. It Will not format the laptop but installer will just add system files and features to the laptop to run Vista Ultimate.

**If you haven't purhcase a Windows Vista Ultimate Disc, check this link to to purchase just an upgrade Disc (only) of Vista Ultimate.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

An upgrade disc will also not format the laptop instead it will just install additional features and add additional files on the system to run Windows Vista Ultimate
