good chance it's died.
I've encountered this looking at 3 or 4 other peoples Acer pc's. dvd drive just fails.

it probably committed suicide when it discovered it was interfaced with an acer.

They are cheap and easy to replace though

My laptop one died last year and another make had to be adapted to replace it. Wasn't possible to obtain an actual reader.

Try the three finger salute ctrl-alt-del. Solves many Windows issues. Seriously reboot it. It may reappear.
