If windows sees the drive in device manager you can attempt to update the firmware. To access device manager, right click on My Computer and then go to properties. Then click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button. Look under DVD/CD-Rom Drives and see if it's listed. If it is, then get the model information off the the drive. Sometimes it is listed in Device Manger, sometimes not, you may have to take the drive out of the PC. After you get the info, post it here and I can point you in the right direction of a firmware update.

Tsst corp cddvdw sh s222a will not accept dvd files that are copied it also does not recognise any cd even boot disk whats going on with this is it a major problem or is it something to do with xp


If the drive is unable to boot from the bootable cd,try reseating the data cable , try flashing the chipset of the drive, from dell support site, if it doesnt works even after that , you have to replace the drive.

New PC not accepting mini DVD-R disc


I've had a look at the Acer Aspire X1200 in a photo and it seems to stand upright with the dvd drive coming out sideways. There is no real groove on the inside of the disc tray to keep the mini DVD-R disc held in place.  There may be a way to remove the stand that holds it upright. Then turn it on the side that you lean it on. That would be the way it would have to sit permenantly by the looks of it. If the stand doesn't come off then I'd suggest just turning it on it's side anyway, not ideal but it will read the disk. I dont think there is anything else you could do to make it read the disc whilst standing up, I'm afraid.

Cd drive isn't working


I just had this happen to me as well. Try opening the case and re-seating all the connectors on the DVD drive and the mother board. If the drive still will not operate after that you may have to purchase a new one. They are fairly cheap and easy to install.

It sounds like the drive has failed. Contact ACER and they will replace it under their warranty.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate at fixya.
