Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

CD / DVD burner

II have a Cd/Dvd burner built in on my laptop and I went to burn a cd and it said no device detected. It has always worked in the past. I sent it back to Acer for a fix and they said they did. I still had problems and had to reinstall the bios and vista. Now it is doing it again. It randomly registers in the bios. When the computer is on, I can eject cds/dvd and it runs. Just the computer does not register the drive or randomly looses it in the bios while the computer is running. If the computer sometimes gets carried or turned over it might register it. So I do not know if it is a software or hardware problem and if I have to take it to a repair shop. about an average cost to fix, please.

I went to burn a cd and it says my burner or software is not found


Remove the device in device manager and re-boot the computer and let it detect and install the drivers again. This usually fixes the problem unless the drive itself is bad.

My disk drive doesn't detect burning media.


You MUST have software that is for burning a CD.

Some examples are "CD Creator", "Nero" and others.

These programs are OFTEN not included and MUST be purchased seperately.

CD/DVD burner stopped working


I had the same problem on my Sony Vaio and I found a free program called "CD Tray Pal" You just click on the desktop icon and it loads and windows recognizes your drive. Amazing, after a while, it fixed itself and I did not have to use it anymore! Hope this helps. http://www.e-systems.ro/ You should be able to find it on this site.

Cd/Dvd burner stopped working on my laptop


It could be that the burner has gone out in the drive, this is a common problem. Before you go and replace the drive, it could just be a simple driver glitch, try uninstalling the drivers for the CD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work then you can replace the drive.

Cd BURNER


You can do that and it should take care of your problem. Most likely somehow or another (can happen with different software titles[for burning]) your upper and lower filters in the registry became corrupted and this is why your CD/DVD drive are not working properly. With the Media Card Reader, usually if you uninstall the USB Root hub in device manager (which it is on) there will be a few of them. Let the computer re-install the driver it will take care of this issue.

Cd/Dvd burner stopped working on my laptop


Check the bios when the laptop first boots. There should be a message saying something like "Press F2 To Enter Setup"

See if your drive is detected and listed in the bios.

If not, power off, pop the drive out and reinsert it then try again.
You may have to turn the laptop over and remove one screw about 5" from the edge but near the drive. It will not be in any panel. If you can't see it then a quick read of your manual should show you how it comes out.

If it is detected in the bios, then boot Windows again and go into System then Device Properties (you can reach SYSTEM from control panel)
Check the list to make sure your drive is installed under Windows.

If that does not help, then post back and we can try a few other things.
