Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Cd burner can't burn a cd, not sure if I have what I need


Answers :

The Slimtype (LITE-ON) dvd burners supplied with the model 5100 are prone to defects. You can slam as much software at it as you like; it won't work properly. I tried nero 8 legit and spent 4 months attempting to contact Tech? support? with no luck before I put my foot down and demanded an RMA-Return Material/merchandise Authorization. Bottom line suggestion: send it back or use it as a boat anchor.
Need to know a bit more like codecs installed , burning software etc.But think if you install program like nero it should solve all your problems cos nero installs all you need to burn media.
