Hi guys, hope you can help, this forum was recommended to me.

I have an Acer Aspire 1622 with a dvd dual drive.

Model: Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S

When i try to:

play an audio cd - insert a cdrw disc - insert a dvdrw disc

nothing happens and the drive just makes noises.

I’ve never needed to fix a drive before but i know i need to use firmware or update the driver.

Thanks for any help.

Did it happen after or while a burn process was on?? If so, I´ve had the same prob… and I´ve been told that the laser is dead… Acer Spain told me 2day, that b4 sending it in for repair (whilst still under warranty…) they´re sending me a “firmware” (by how they told how to install it, it sounds to me more of a driver rather then a FW) anyways, the link they sent me was dead. but the file was something like SDW-042-D363.zip. If anyone can tell us something more…

Go to my firmware pag. In Tools section download LiteOn Flash + LiteOn Region Protection Control v1.2.4. There is also a .txt on how to use it. :cool:
BACKUP FIRMWARE+EEPROM BEFORE UPDATING FIRMWARE!!!
Go toFirmware section and get PSX3. It’s the latest firmware for the SOSW-852S :iagree: .
