    I suggest trying the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.


    Step 1 First please unplug and replug your DVD drive to mark sure that it is installed properly.


    Step 2 If you have any third-party CD/DVD-burning software such as Naro or Roxio installed, please temporarily remove them from "Control Panel"-> "Programs and Features".


    Step 3 Delete Filter Drivers


    1. Click Start, type regedit and press ENTER.


    2. Navigate to the following key:




    3. Right click the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} entry, choose "Export", select Desktop in the Save in box and type backup in File Name. Click Save.


    Please Note: The backup file is on the Desktop and named backup.reg. We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the backup.reg file.


    4. Highlight this key ({4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), on the right pane, and then check if Upperfilters and Lowerfilters value are present. If so, please right click on the values and select "Delete" to remove them.


    5. Restart the computer


    If the issue persists, as this issue occurred after installing updates, I suggest performing a System Restore to restore the system to a state before these updates were installed to check the result.


    To get the issue resolved in a timely manner, you can also contact Acer for more information.


    Hope it helps.
