Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook ?

CD Player Won't Play CDs/DVDs... But DivXs

\015 Hello everybody,\015\012\015\012I have a laptop (Acer TravelMate 2300) with Microsoft Office 2003. Problem: it does not read CDs (slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S) and will not read any audio CDs (original or copy) or any DVDs.However, it can read DivX without any problem (so it is not lens-related).\015\012Things started to happen after I had to install the DivX Codecs... Unless it is the latest iTunes version???\015\012Anyway. I have tried a few things already, unsuccessfully so far.\015\012Can anyone help???\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

Since you know when it started, try doing a system restore to just before installing divx codecs.

Then the drive should work.
You can install the codecs again. Make sure you install codecs obtained only from divx.com and not some third party codecs.

Then restart your computer and the problem should be resolved
