Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 5732Z this has a DVD RW drive which I have used regularly but for the first time in 13 months I have trie to use the CD drive. When I insert a CD it is not recognised, the laptop operates under Windows 7.

Assuming you tried different CDs, that disk in another computer, and narrowed the problem down to your specific computer.... It is probably time to replace the DVD-RW drive.
The notebook is 13 months old, the DVD drive has had very little use and this was my first attempt to read CDs, I doubt that it is time to change the drive, but thank you anyway.
