First off please make sure that the drive you have is a DVD-rom and not a CD-Rom because if you only have a CD-rom there will be no way it can read a DVD.
Now after that check if you have the correct codec to read the DVD file. Try downloading this K-lite Mega Codec Pack.
If that does not do the trick please check if your computer can detect or recognize your DVD drive.
Please explain your problem as corrupted cd/dvd rom driver doesn't stand for anything. CD/DVD ROM driver can never corrupt only lens of cd/dvd driver becomes weak because of which it cann't read cd or dvd
If you are using Windows OS, most of the CD/DVD Rom drivers are generic you do not need to install any drivers for the devices to function. If it is the firmware that need updating, go to the manufacturer support to download the firmware file to update your DVD Rom firmware.
If your Windows system cannot detect your DVD Rom, it could be your DVD drive had failed. Is the DVD drive settings for set correctly ie. if your DVD drive is of IDE interface. No settings is required for SATA interface.
Either you DVD is corrupt, OR the DVD reader is not working correctly. It seems the reason the restore failed, is that it "Thinks" the Hard Drive is corrupt, too corrupt to replace the OS on...
The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.
Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.
The yellow exclamation mark means that the driver for the DVD/CD-ROM is corrupted. You will need to find the drivers for your drive and re-install it. This should be easy enough to do: find the brand name of your drive and go to the website of the manufacturer, then locate their drivers page and find the specific driver for your product, then download and install the driver and restart your computer and the drive should work. Please rate if this works for you, Thanks!
well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall
