Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

I can't get the computer to find a cd or dvd, it keeps saying please insert disc - but its already in there.

HELP!! It worked this morning, and now it won't work. I have tried all sorts of DVD's and CD's and they all have the same problem. The computer doesnt seem to register them. I can hear it making a noise like its processing when I first insert the disc, and the mouse comes up with a small CD icon next to it, but then nothing further happens. It would normally open up a box asking what I want to do next. I cant even open them via My computer.

Your driver(s) may be corrupt. Try this. RIGHT click on MY COMPUTER from your desktop, select PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, select the HARDWARE tab, click on the DEVICE MANAGER button, click on the (+) by the DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES line, RIGHT click the drive that isn't working, (this part may sound scary) select the UNINSTALL option, click OK in the warning box, then restart your computer. On restart, WIndows will automatically detect the deleted DVD/CD-ROM drive and will install the appropriate non-corrupt driver(s). This should solve your problem. If not the drive may be defective. Hope this helps!

After copying the dvd video content, and inserting the blank disc, Roxio does not recognize the blank disc and continues to say 'please insert blank disc' I have tried both DVD R and DVD WR. Please help!


If your roxio software does not read or recognize the disc that you are using, you can use other brands of disc to check if the disc that you are using is not compatible with the software.


Cheers . . .

Hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's. Can't record DVD - keeps asking for blank disc when it's already inserted


What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.
