    Thanks for that but it's an internal dvd/cd r-w so there is no data cable to change. I suppose I should have explained that it's an acer extensa 2300 notebook.

Hello,
mean that cannot play DVD movie, ahh you need a codecs, try to google the DVD codecs and download it and install.
if not use, VLC player and some DVD player that recognize DVD codecs. you can google also.
if won't resolve then, try.
try clean it with DVD cleaner, or maybe at loss the DVD reader is out of order.

Plz try by cleaning the dvd with the dvd lens cleaner, if the problem persist then try by changing the data cable, if everything fails you try with new dvd rom.

Acer extensa 4630z I am trying to reboot Vista but I cannot get to the proper screen. I can get no further than Edit Windows boot options for: Microsoft Windows Vista


You may have to get a CD/DVD of Vista from your friend or associate for reinstallation of the operating system. If you go to Windows 7 or 8.1 you would be better off than waste time with Vista and all of its problems. If the CD Drive is not working, get an External USB CD/VDV drive from WalMart. They are not expensive and they come in handy at times. Plug the external CD/DVD into a USB port and start up the computer seeking the new device. Run the Software the same as you would from your unstable device.

Acer extensa 5620 notebook dvd-cd rom doesn't read my dvd. i think i uninstalled driver. how can i find dvd writer driver for my notebook?


go to device manager under System Properties. Locate DVD/CD Drives, expand it, select your drive, right click and then left click on properties, select the General tab and check the state of the device IT SHOULD indicate the device is working properly, if so or if not, select the Driver tab unomstall the driver, reboot, see if Windows will reinstall the driver as it should recognize the device as a new drive. If not return to the device manager and reinstall the driver.

Dvd not recognized by Windows Media Center


This issue can be caused by a few things. my first suggestion is to delete the upper and lower filters, you can follow this kb document from microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 for step by step instructions on how to do this. If the problem persists try using microsoft's restore manager to go back to a time when the device was properly working. If all else fails you may have to replace the drive.

Acer issue: itunes wont recognize my cd burner


The DVD burner *IS* the CD burner (the same drive does both jobs). Does Windows itself recongize it? (if so, is it able to burn CD's using it?)
