Refer Acer m3970 Can not Install windows 7 of new hard drive


Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.

Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.

I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.

Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.

My Yamaha CDR D651 appears to dislike new 50x maxell CD-r discs saying not audio. Works fine with 12x discs. What's wrong? Rowan


you probably have regular cd-r disks that cannot be recorded on in this unit. You can only use disks marked "DIGITAL AUDIO" for recording

DVD drive won't read original microsoft office installation disk - it will read other disks. Also the microsoft disk can be read from DVD drives in other computers.


Hi,
First are you CERTAIN the computer you are using the dvd in is capeable of reading dvd discs? If so I'd recomend purchasing a cd/dvd cleaner (available online and in most audio shops) and a CD Lense cleaner.
This should cure your problrm, unless it's one of the first signs of the laser wearing out, in which case a replacement drive is required

Disk not detected


Hi, had the same problem myself, turns out (after some investigation) that the motor that spins the dvd wasn't getting power. I carefully pulled out the smaller ribbon cable that goes to the small circuit board beneath the drive caddy, then pushed it back in. Put it back together, turned it on and off it went! Yay!

Only reads some disks.


Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed.
Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory.
If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
