Exclamation Acer Travelmate 6492 cd drive problems

Hi guys I have a travelmate 6492 with windows xp service pack 3 on and i am experiencing that problem where it does not show in my computer also does not read but it shows in device manager...I have run the regedt32 thing and deleted the registries as you guys say and have ininstalled the driver and rebooted but it just seems not to work. once it has rebooted it says cd/dvd detected installing then it never actually finishes by saying software installed properly or a problem occured.

Any clues

idea Re: Acer Travelmate 6492 cd drive problems

First, you don't install an optical drive...... the OS does that for you automatically. Second, there is never notification of an optical drive being installed except for external USB drives. You failed to say if this is an internal IDE or SATA drive or if it's an external USB drive.

Please go to the CD/DVD Driver Request forum and read any of my posts for instructions on how to use a program called CDGONE and run it. After a reboot your drive should now be listed in "My Computer" and working properly unless it's a cratered drive or has a loose cable. Also, check in bios setup to insure the drive is properly enabled in the bios settings.

good deal, glad you got it going. Can you tell me where this editreg.reg file is located that you speak of?
