FAQ 000078 - CD or DVD disappers in Windows 7 after a few minutes PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 4

This article applies to:

Windows 7

 

PROBLEM:

CD or DVD ROM is detected by Windows 7 but "disappears" after a few minutes.

 

CAUSE:

This can occur for example on Acer Timeline laptops if the Acer Optical Drive Power Management Application is not installed. In order to achieve higher battery life many recent laptops turn off optical drive to save power. Without the proper power management application Windows will think that the device is unplugged and not accessible any more and of course will remove the drive.

 

SOLUTION:

Download and install the Optical Drive Management application/driver.
