Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4530-5889 Notebook PC ?

DVD Writer not functioning properly in XP

\015 I have an Acer 4530 laptop running on both XP and Windows 7. Recently I installed Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 and then uninstalled it (in XP). But after that my DVD writer is not functioning properly in XP> Whenever I insert a DVD or CD, it shows it as empty. It detects that a DVD or CD has been inserted but cannot detect data on it. But it is working fine in Windows 7. In windows 7, I am using Power ISO to write data to DVDs and CDs.Any help is very much appreciated. I could format the system but that is not the correct solution. So please help me.\015

Hi there.
While you are in XP go to the device manager, look down the list of devices for the DVD rom, click on the + icon next to the DVD rom, right click on the DVD and uninstall it, restart the PC and let windows re-detect the DVD and install it.
I also suggest that you clean the registry, download Ccleaner from here, install it and clean the system and registry.
