Acer laptop computers have one disc drive built into them. This drive runs both CDs and DVDs. When a program or video game is bought from a store, it comes on a DVD or CD. Also, DVDs and CDs are commonly used to store information such as videos and images as well. This disc needs to be properly inserted into the Acer laptop computer's disc drive to work. If the disc is not correctly placed, it will not function and nothing stored on the drive can be installed onto the Acer laptop's hard drive.
