Laptop not reading or recognizing USB/CDs


This is a frustrated laptop user experiencing some problems reloading an OS on my system. This is due to the fact my laptop Acer Aspire will not read any bootable media. I have disabled secure boot, reverted to legacy and etc. in the BIOS yet every reboot it states there is no bootable media detected.

The USB and CD will not show up in the boot order menu, and when I run the PC the disc does not read.

Prior to this I had windows 10, then installed Kali Linux and am now here. What went wrong and what do I do from here?
