Dvd/rw drive not recognized as master on acer 3634

Had to replace a dvdrw drive in an acer 3634 however the unit I am installing is a phillips spd8005bm/17 the computer recognizes it as a slave and it will not operate or read discs , and also requests driver load , doesn't need one . so I guess the firmware is not compatible , any ideas out there.

Can we assume the phillips is a known working drive? and not a used one with a worn laser? - remove the cd rom controller itself and let windows redetect it - you may have to locate a driver for it - if it was working on another machine, you could see what driver file it uses, and possibly your acer doesn't have the file, although it's a common windows file, maybe acer saw no need to include it in their factory created hard drive image? essentially, a missing windows xp system file.

No bootable device acer aspire 5250


This error message means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive or there is no operating system on the hard drive. In the bios does the computer see the hard drive? The unit may have to have the hard drive replaced.

If you have installed these devices yourself check that the jumper settings on the back if the drive anre set correctley if they are plugged into one cable you must have one set to master and the other as slave .

If these devices have work ok previousley go into device manager and delete your cdr and dvdrw and the delete the ide or sata controler and reboot this will cause all the drivers to reloaded the check to see if the y work

I have a Dell. My Roxio prog doesn't recognize a discs


That means there is something wrong with your driver. If it cannot read any disc you inserted then the problem exist in your drive. You don't need to reinstall any driver as long as you can see your drive being recognized by your computer and you can see your drive in the My Computer with a letter indicated on it. Your drive is in need for a replacement. This problem indicates a hardware failure specifically the lens of the device.

Hope this helps..

Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

NTLDR Error


You need to either reinstall windows, or take the drive out and plug it into another computer.  You can google NTDLR and download the file from whatever OS you are using and put that in your root directory on your laptop hard drive.  Reconnect and you should be good to go.

Acer Drive d icon in my computer


DMagnus and Guest

when your pc is starting, click on DEL to see BiosSetup. In BOOT SEQUENCE, where you can find FLOPPY, MASTER 1, SLAVE 1, MASTER 2 and SLAVE 2, see in SLAVE 1 if your D DRIVE NAME appears or try to select it clicking in ENTER and changing in a hardware list that will show up. If you don't see your D drive's name there, means that it's not working anymore and needs a new one like that.
Normaly, Acer comes with Philips DVD's (about CD players I don't know) and has as variation only the model (example: Philips DVD-R+RW S8441) , wich is the mark that you need to know and search in BIOS SETUP.

hope this helps to you know what happened ;-)

Where are you looking to recognize the disks? if it is in my computer in Windows it would most likely be because the Roxio software was what was recognizing the disks. generally Windows does not do a very good job of recognizing blank disks. I would look at the disk information in your current CD burning software and see what that says.
