Hello ali5867,

You can check if you have a DVD connected to your laptop by simply going to your My Computer.

If you can't see your DVD rom on there, you can go to your Device Manager to double check.

You can go to your Device Manager by clicking on the Start Menu button, then drag your mouse pointer to your My Computer icon then right click on it.

Choose Properties then click on the Hardware tab. You can find the DVD/CDROM Drives.

If it's still not there, you may need to call Aspire to see how you can go about with it.

As far as burning data to your DVD or ripping data off from it, you will need a burning software for that.

You will need to get a copy of Nero. That's what I use to burn data to my DVD or rip data from your DVD to your laptop.

Hope this helps.

I have had a lot of luck with Puppy Linux. Download the ISO, burn it to a CD using ISO burning software, then boot into the CD. From there, you should be able to browse your HDD and copy any files you want to a USB drive. I would suggest wiping and reinstalling your operating system after that.

Hdd user password ???? needed...acer aspire 4315


Forgot Windows password? If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset your Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer which can link to the Internet.
Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Breaker with the available computer.

Step 2: Run the program and burn a Windows password reset disk. It could be burned onto a CD/DVD OR USB flash drive.

Step 3: Turn to your locked computer, insert the newly created CD or USB to your drive. Reboot the Computer and reset the Windows password.

It is easy and safe.

Are you able to read CD's and DVD's using the Optical Drive ?If yes, then it may be a problem with the lens in the drive.It can also be an issue with the software that you are using to burn Cd's ( like Nero ).If you are not able to Read and write Cd's or DVD's and the Optical drive isnot listed in " My Computer" then it can be either a driver issue or registry filters issue.Let me know abt this

Driver of blu ray for my aspire 5536


The standard specs for all of the 5536 models show equipped with a Super-Multi drive which capable of many CD and DVD formats including double layer DVD. However, I don't see support for Blu-Ray.

You could add an external Blu-Ray that connects to USB or FireWire (1394).

What dvd or cd disc do I use to burn pictures and documents from my acer aspire 5315 laptop


Depending on what your computer has for a drive, DVD or CD, makes the difference in the answer. However, you will be safe with either drive using CD-R, CD+W

Hi I have a Acer Aspire T180 Desktop and have fitted a new SATA HD as the original went down. I am trying to reload Vista but when I get to a paoint passed loading Product key it asks to Load drivers ??...


You will need to go to a working computer and go to this web site:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html
Download the drivers onto a flash drive or have them burned to a CDROM/DVD and bring them to your Acer and upload/point to them on the flash/cdrom/dvd, should fix you right up.

Can i install programs from cds onto aspire one using another pc or must i buy external cd/dvd drive?


If you have your computers networked - you can then use any of your network CD/DVD drives.

OR

You can upload CD / DVD contents to a USB stick and then use USB stick to install on your aspire.
