Check it is "seen" in the bios first, a failed device will often disappear from the bios
Then, in My Computer, see if you can see the DVD Icon
Now If you can see it, go to Control panel, device manager and see if there is a yellow exclaimation mark next to the device, indicating a problem. If there is, the device has possibly failed, but you can try to remove the retaining screw that holds it into the laptop remove the DVD and re-insert it. This works most times IF the device still has life left in it

IF you cannot see the DVD in My Computer, repost and I'll talk you through the next stage, which involves resetting the filters in the registry

SOURCE: 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.

go to Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.

Do you see any yellow markers with Exclamation points in them?
If so you need to reinstall the drivers.

IF not ---

got to Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices

Check to make sure all the volumes are turned up.

And also make sure the volume is up with the physical volume buttons on your keyboard.

If you need drivers and need help installing
Please, Let me know :)

SOURCE: dvd/cd drive of acer aspire 5310 laptop not work propery

First step would be to try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. Then see if drive detects. More than likely this problem is caused by a dirty laser lens or improper lens alignment. Cleaning should always be the first step in a problem you describe as 99% of the time it is the cure. Good luck.

SOURCE: How to replace the DVD drive on Acer Aspire 5002

I actually had to permorm this action yesterday.
First remove the small strip above the keyboard by unscrewing the three screws at the back of the machine that hold it; then twisting the screen al the way back and lifting it up.
Second unscrew the keyboard (2 screws) and lift it away (don't detach the cable).
Third: on the left side under the keyboard unscrew 3 screws that hold the cdrom in place.
Pull the drive out. The rest (taking the case of the dirve) should be transparent.
There is nothing on the bottom you have to unscrew!

Downloading music tracks to a blank CD using Sony Sonic Stage software


go into the settings for sonicstage and select your dvd drive. that should be it. but you may have to do other things(i have a sony player too, but i have found sonicstage to be a waste of space and time. it is rather a pain. try looking through the manual and seeing if you have any options for the location of the cs drive. if not, then get a usb cd burner and connect it to the laptop. that should work properly.
