I was going to do a backup, when I noticed the DVD player was no longer showing under My Computer.
I when into the device manager, where it showed with a yellow X .. I tried updating the device driver, it said I already had the correct device. I did several other things - nothing worked.
I really wanted to get the backup done, so I took my portable DVD player/writer and connected it. The laptop found a device loaded OK ... but it did not show up under My Computer. I was the same issue as the internal DVD player.
Then I took a USB external Passport drive, connected to the same USB port, no issues .. It mounted the drive and I performed the backup.
My T520 will not use any DVD device ... any Ideas ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks .. That worked great ! I am saving that link ... It looks like it will fix other issues ... its not just a fix for the DVD player
True, somehow this area goes south now and then. Last time I used it was on an old XT system of someone. He had some techs try to fix his machine and couldn't. I had it working in half an hour altering the keys. LOL
You know there are exceptionally few KUDOS given on this forum for some reason and given the number of posts some people give or respond to. The great majority of posters just don't know or read it exists. Anyway good to see you up and running again.
