I am having a bit of bother with my DVD drive. A few months ago, it just disappeared, and I haven't been able to use it since. I have tried many of the solutions here, and none work, I have had two replacement DVD drives, none work. The DVD drive doesn't even show up in the BIOS screen, or in device manager. Is this a fault with the laptop or IDE?
I have an Acer Aspire 7520 Laptop, AMD athalon 64x2, Windows Vista, and the DVD drive is supposed to be a DVD-Super multi double layer. I haven't the faintest idea what to do, and have already started looking for a new laptop. Is there anyone out there who can save me a few quid and solve this annoying problem please?
