This will be one of two things, 1- a driver glitch, you will need to uninstall the drivers for the cd/dvd drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. This will fix it if it's a driver problem. You can also try any updated driver utilities, or patches for the drive from Acer's support site. 2- the cd/dvd drive has failed and needs replaced. These are basically plug and play devices, they either work or they don't, so a majority of the time when the machine stops recognizing the drive, it's because the drive has malfunctioned. Unfortunately, these drives are considered sealed units and replacement parts aren't available.

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.

I hope issue has been resolved.

I need to install the cd/dvd drive on my acer aspire 5315 notebook


Drivers for acer computers:
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

Simply select your specific model and the required driver for the CD/DVD drive.

More information about what type of CD/DVD drive you have could also be useful for a better solution.

Another suggestion would be to temporarily remove the CD drive, this can often be done with one screw on the bottom of your laptop next to an imprint of a small CD.

This site also had some helpful information about your particular model, seems to be a common problem.

This of course is assuming you're still running the stock OS, and hardware on the machine.

Acer Aspire 5315 Vista Windows boot problem


have you checked if your pc is compatible with win7? use this to check it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
and if it is, try to do a clean install. boot from the cd. insert the disc. restart pc, as soon as it has power, press F12 several times and highlight cd/dvd drive or ODD using your arrow keys then press enter. it will load the cd from there. And that should work fine.

DVD drive in acer aspire 5315 not working


best option would be getting from acer itself, they should have spareparts for your laptop, or you can bring the drive itself to your local computer shop so that you could compare the dimension and specs..

Hope it helps!

My acer 5315 laptop dvd does not work,when i put a dvd says unable to detect a dvd device on your computer.


Does it read CD's..? Does it only fail on DVD's?

Try installing new firmware, try physically reseating the DVD drive. Try unistalling and reinstalling the device through Device Manager.

If everything fails still, then you have a bad DVD drive and will have to get a new one.

Troubleshooting helps......

Cd/dvd drive problem


Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...
