Question about Acer Aspire 9300 Notebook

1 Answer

Loosing cd/dvd completely from device manager

Acer aspire 9302, windows vista HP, optiarc cd/dvd drive - this drive disappears in front of my eyes from the device manager listing. i can occasionally restore it with a windows installation disk, but not long after i use the drive it then fails - doesnt keep the drivers and drops out of the device manager list. i recently suffered a system crash and reloaded windows vista, but am experiencing the above problem. i have already done the 'filters' trick in registry - they are no longer present!! i have however lost 'Acer' functions on the laptop.

    tks for the post - you may have been right on the 'loose' suggestion. although it did not appear or feel loose, since i applied some pressure to it, the drive appears to be stable and appears and works correctly. So until it disappears - pls accept my thanks. (ps was in bios)

Hi, There is nothing wrong with your CD/DVD drive.

Your Registry is corrupt. Now you are missing the Upper or Lower filters(or both) on your CD/DVD drive.

Try System Restore and here's a Microsoft article on the subject.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Disappearing DVD driver


Use device manager to remove the dvd/cd unit, and then reboot the computer. Vista will locate the unit and install the driver.

It is possible that the dvd/cd unit has failed and requires repair or replacement

CANNOT FIND CD/DVD DRIVE ON ACER ASPIRE 5100


Is the hardware listed in the BIOS? When the computer first starts up hit a key to get in the BIOS (Esc, F2 or F10 are most likely). If it's not listed in the BIOS then it's likely a hardware problem. Try checking the connections to make sure it's plugged in and getting power.

If it is listed in the BIOS, it's likely a problem within Windows. Check Acer's website for known issues with the cd-rom.
