Is the 'DVD-Super Multi DL Drive' on the Acer 5742 Aspire basically a DVD rewriter, or does it just play DVD's?


This Super-Multi Drive will write to dual layer DVDs (DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL) at a 4x speed. The full specs of the Acer 5742 are available here: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/2010/Acer/Aspire/Aspire5742/Aspire5742sp2.shtml .

You should be able to place a dual layer dvd in the drive and have it recognized. Windows may ask you if you want to format the disc.

I hope this helps.

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

I lost the drivers what can i do?


well you really don't need drivers for xp+ systems. it should automatically be recognized. you just have to get cd/dvd burning software like Nero.
according to this site that drive won't be recognized by vista with out a firmware update

DRIVER FOR LG MULTI SUPER DVD BLACK


Start-Control pannel-System-Hardware tab(I don't know how it appears in english, bcause I have a Spanish O.S)

Then you will se a list of your hardware.

Look for DVD-CD drives and double clik to see if a driver is installed and corresponds with your hardware.

You have few possibilities:

1) an exclamation mark appears near the drive: this means that the driver was not properly installed: In that case double click and sear for a new driver

2) You have a driver that doesn't correspond to your harware:
Do the same as 1)

2) The drive installed is the correct one: The problem can be a hardware one.Note the exact name of the driver and the version and go to LG site and look for a new one

3) No DVD/CD drive appears in the list: Go to Start_control pannel_ add hardware and let windows search for your DVD and install the apropiate driver.Stay connected to Internet to let the system search on MS .

Hope that will help
