Hello to all

I have a Acer aspire 5735 laptop that I am working on, now I can't seem to fix the dvd drive.

The Dvd drive has the drivers installed, device manager says its okay, and when I put a cd in the light does turn green, and I hear the
drive spin for less than 1 second and it does that 3 times. Then it does not do anything else.

I also went into computer trying to manually open a CD with data but it ejects the drive saying "Insert disc"

I think that the lens is bad and that is why it never reads the cd's

Any suggestions??

Thank-you

Hi Jucyboy
Hows the shop going?

Have you cleaned the lens yet?

Try this as well
Your CD or DVD drive can't read or write media
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi Guys

Well I am very busy with the shop, however sometimes it can get crazy because I am very young and inexperienced as far as business goes.

But I think my patience and persistence will pay of some day, I just got to keep going....

Thanks for remembering and the support!

Anyways the Computer can't read any CD's every time I insert a CD it says insert disc..??

I used many types of media CD's and software. I even tried to boot of the CD drive and it just will not read anything. It spins once or twice and that is it.

I will clean up the lens and read up on the link.

When you work for yourself its always crazy!
But its a good kind of crazy!
Glad you are giving it a go and that it seems to be working out for you.

Have you reseated the drive yet?
Is it IDE or SATA?
In the beginning there was the command line.
