I think it might be software related if your lucky and not a hardware problem.

what you should try is update your dvd drives firmware which should be listed on your manufactures website, if not (which is most cases) use google by typing in 'make model firmware' (the actual word firmware not yours)

good luck

DVD drive read/burn problem


From the description the new DVD driver is defective and should be returned if still under warranty. The only concern that I have is the replacement you got is identical to the original and that it is not a aftermarket product, because they don't have the same specifications as the original.

DVD DOES NOT PLAY, BRAND NEW FROM BEST BUY ACER EXTENSA LAPTOP EX5230E-2177 WILL NOT BURN A DVD OR PLAY A MOVIE


first make sure that the drive is installed properly. I would advise you to install it from the manufacturer's site. Let me know if you need the installation files.

Also, it can help if you can let me know if it reads any other discs- like regular discs. Try several different types- burned cd and dvd discs, brand new discs, original discs etc.
If installing it doesn't help and the drive will not read any kinds of discs, you will have to return the laptop to the store where you bought it, or try to return it to the manufacturer, maybe they can replace the drive.

My dvd rive is not reading a dvd cd is working properly. what should be done? very rarely it reads the acer driver dvd


If its only having trouble with one disc , then the disc is probably dirty or the data on it is corrup

If it has trouble with many discs or all discs , then the drive is failing and will have to be replaced. As its a laptop , it would probably be cheaper buying an external USB dvd reader/burner than buying a replacement internal one as laptop parts are expensive and not readily available

If this has been of any use to you , please rate my solution below

Drive cant write any disc


If the unit was working ok and suddenly the unit stop to read the blank disk, the problem could be related to a dirty lector (need to clean) or unit firmware (need to be updated)
In that case you can update your firmware here:

***************************************************************************************
Remember

1) You have to use a blank "recordable disk" to allow your drive write a disk
2) Not all disks are compatible
3) Try differents brand
4) Clean your drive lector
5) Update your firmware
