There could be a number of problems with this and the more specific you could be the better. If your having trouble with it playing DVD movies but it plays CDs you may just not have any DVD playing software installed.

 

Heres the link to one of those.... http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-DVD-Player-Software.htm

 

If it is just broken replacing it is honestly the easiest option. You could easily find one for free on craigslist. They are not expensive to purchase either. in fact if you wanted to spend money you could get a DVD BURNER for 20 dollars from newegg.com.

 

Install is not too hard and is pretty much the same across the board  heres a link to how to install a drive... enjoy!

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

My acer aspire 5315 dvd rom doesnt work at all but somtime it do


There is a problem with the DVD ROM. Maybe it is not well fixed and causing conflict which result in making the computer slow. And maybe it is not contacting the system well again, that's why it worked and later not worked when it loose contact.

I would advice that you shut down your system, loose the DVD ROM and put the system back on without the DVD ROM after a little while when the windows must have settled, shut down the system again and fixed back the DVD ROM. Make sure it is well connected and put the system back on again. Test the DVD ROM and see if it would give the same problem. If it does, then may be you will have to replace the DVD ROM.

One a DVD ROM is bad, another one needs to be purchased, because it is usually difficult to repair DVD ROM expect in minor case.

I wish you the best.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.
