    i recently reformatted my c drive, and now i can't play dvds on the dvd drive.
    it's an acer, not sure of the model number.
    and acer has turned into benq, so i'm not sure how to figure out what model acer driver i have to install the right driver.
    when i use the acer auto-detect, it shows my cd rw drive and two listings for dvd-rom drives

    Device: DVD-ROM Firmware version 1.13 2
    Device: DVD-ROM Firmware Version 1.0

    i looked at the front of the acer drive, it doesn't have a model number, just says 16x dvdrom 40x cd rom

    how can i determine the model number and get it playing dvds again??

    if i do get it playing dvds again....will i be able to stick a dvd in that drive and use shrink and decrypter to read the dvd and use the cd r/w drive to burn a dvd on the cd r/w drive?
