I need to access the CD/DVD drive of T400s in DOS (by booting pc with for example a window98se DOS floppy disk).
I have tried gcdrom.sys driver (avilable on net, for SATA Native IDE CD/DVD-ROM driver) in DOS but with no success.
Information about T400s cd/dvd drive in windows device manager:
DVD/CD-ROM drives: "Optiarc DVD RW AD-7910S"
IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller: "Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller"

I have found a solution:
extcd.sys cdrom driver is working for Lenovo Thinkpad T400s CD/DVD drive in DOS.
Find extcd.sys and ctload.exe files on net and put them in your boot floppy disk.
Create a cdrom.bat file with following contents
echo Loading Dell EXTCD driver
CTLOAD extcd.sys /D:EXTCD001
echo Loading MSCDEX to assign CD Drive letter
In DOS mode just run cdrom.bat

if you can't find ctload.exe on net
then just add this line
in your config.sys file
and in autoexec.bat file or cdrom.bat file, just add
