The halfway opening of the CD tray is rather normal for slim versions of the CD drive as in the case  in your laptop.  Full slideout of tray is standard on the desktop versions.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Upgrade of dvd rom for acer aspire 3000


Does Windows recognize it as something else in the device manager? You probably need to install the right drivers for the drive.

Acer aspire 5570z wont boot to windows

Insert a windows boot disc. Go into the bios select it to boot from CD-ROM first. Then you can go from there. If you get it to boot to windows disc, then you could start reinstalling windows. If you are still having issues then there is a more serious issue. If you have any other questions let me know.

Dvd/cd drive isnt recognized

Turn off the laptop completely. There is one screw on the bottom holding it in place. Take out the screw and then take out the drive from the laptop. Put it back into place and make sure it reseats snug into the slot. Press F10 to get into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there, if it is then you know that it was the drive not getting seated properly. If its still not getting recognized then try another knowng good working drive in there.

Also make sure you reset the defaults in the BIOS. if the new drive isnt seen in there then it could be a bad controller on the motherboard and if the machine is under warranty, get the motherboard replaced.

Dvd/cd drive isnt recognized

First determine if this is a hardware issue or driver issue by going to the setup at boot and pressing whatever Acer has as a setup entry like F2, Delete, etc. then making sure that the drives are listed and the proper bus enabled. If no DVD drive is listed then a connection is not made. If it is listed then verify that the primary, secondary, IDE, SATA, etc. options are enabled. Some drives only open by right-clicking the drive icon whereas most open with a physical button as well.

CD/DVD not working, lapto doesn't recognizes it

It sounds like a problem with part of the I/O for the CD drive on the mother board. If the computer is under warranty, I would see about sending it back for service.

Normaly, if you are using original supported devices, if the drive is not defective and the drivers are installed, it should work.
