There propably isnt anything wrong with the dvd drive itself, Its probably the driver that runs it is corrupt or out of date.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

Hi mine is Acer Aspire 4520. I was playing movie from a DVD yesterday all fine. I left it inside the drive. Today I found that my DVD Ram device has gone bad; it's showing all empty space in whatever...


Can you suggest which OS you are using?
Does this problem exist for all the CDs/DVDs?
Try to insert bootable CD and try boot from it and check if it works.
You can try blank cd and just write it using NERO and check.

Take the laptop to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

It may be necessary to replace a "dead" optical drive.

My cd dvd drive does not work it is corrupted


Since I can't determine what specific type of DVD Drive you have based on laptop model, here is a website that will give you a few choices of generic drive drivers that should solve your problem. Download the drivers, install and reboot before you let windows install the device. Let the install happen after reboot.
