DVD/CD-ROM stopped functioning

2008-05-03, 17:57 PM
Message: Windows cannot load the device driver...
It's an updated version, and it used to work when I first bought the Thinkpad (T61) a few weeks ago. I uninstalled it. Now I have to reinstall but cannot find the driver software online (Mat**bleep**a DVD RAM UJ-862 ATA device).
Would appreciate any help.

a lot of the hardware, including the DVD ROM drive uses a generic microsoft supplied driver.  In cases where I have had this thing fail, the only thing I could do was to either do a system format, restore, or repair install using a Windows CD. 

It's kind of lame that Windows Update cannot be used to update these kinds of errors...

If you open the Device Manager (filename: DEVMGMT.MSC), scroll down to the DVD/CD-ROM drives section and expand it, do you see a listing for the Matsushıta DVD RAM UJ-862 ATA device at all?  If so, what error message does it say in the device's properties?
