Dvd cdrom drivers


The DVD ROM is part of the system and doesn't require drivers to "Work". I suspect if the DVD is not shown in My Computer, the drive is faulty.

There propably isnt anything wrong with the dvd drive itself, Its probably the driver that runs it is corrupt or out of date.
Click start and type drivers into search.
Select update device drivers.
Then double click dvd/cdrom drives from the list.
right click each driver available in the drop down selection and click update driver.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

P.S if that doesnt work, repeat the process but instead of clicking update driver, click scan for hardware changes

-it is possible that you the optical drive is loose. That can be resolved by re-seating the drive itself.
-first, shut the laptop down, unplug the AC adapter if it is plugged-in then remove thte battery pack of the laptop.
-you need some small philips head screw driver to unscrew just one screw that holds the optical drive located at the bottom of the laptop. You may need to consult the user's manual of the laptop.

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Sudden problem with DVD drive in Acer Aspire 4520. CD/DVD player not detected.


Will the Notebook boot from the CD/DVD with a system disk installed? Have a check first, if not:
Ensure your CD/DVD tray is empty and re boot your Notebook. If you still get the problem, I suspect the driver has corrupted. Go online to the Acer web site and download an updated driver. Follow their instructions to re install it and that should be that. If you still have a problem, maybe the drive itself has failed.

Hope that helps
