Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?
Dvd cdrom drive cannot be accessed
\015 Dvd cdrom cannot be accessed\015
Can you provide more information? Does the cd eject when you push the button? Does it act like it is going to read or does it act completely dead? If the disc acts like it is going to read and it still ejects when you push the button, then there is a possiblity that you could have a Copy Protection program by Sony on your computer. Sony had released a few cd's that when played in the computer would install software that would end up disabling the drive. You can test this by putting a windows disc, or some other bootable disc into your computer and trying to start up, if you computer starts up I would grab some anti-malware programs like malware killer - http://finalbuilds.edskes.net/malwarekiller.htm and scan for spyware, virus, rootkits,etc.
I hope this helps.
