Hi Friends,
Acer Aspire 5100 PC Notebook main problem is Connection Problem, Software Problem etc.

My Acer 5100 also doesn't list/recognize my cd/dvd rom drive (no, it's not in my device manager). Reinstalling doesn't work because there's no listing to click on. I've removed and checked the drive, etc. The thing whirs and tries to read when I insert a disc, so i know the device is working...

Another thought, if I can't resolve this, and decide to go with an external drive via my USB port, must I get an Acer? Or will another brand of drive work just as well?
