Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5920 AS5920 Notebook ?

My dvd rw drive doesn't work anymore!

\015 I have an Acer Aspire 5920G running windows vista home preminum. It used to play all dvds and cds well. several days ago, I inserted a dvd, the laptop played it with windows media player well for over an hour, then the video suddenly paused. I took the disc out and inserted it again but the driver did not respond. I tried other discs, both dvds and cds but the driver still did not respond. I checked the Device Mananger and the driver's status is ''working properly''. Are there any ways I can fix it or is the driver totally broken? Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

I'm afraid the drive itself has gone bad. The "working properly" you get in the device manager is a misnomer...all it means is that the device can be seen by windows it doesn't actually indicate the functionality of the device. It is likely that the laser died in the middle of the movie and the only way to fix it is to replace the drive.
There is no problem with your driver but definitely you have a broken cd rom, you may need a cd rom replacement
