this might be a software issue .... when I tried originally, I was missing the ASPI driver. http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/speed/software_pc/aspi/aspi_471a2_exe.htm

After a restart, my program was able to detect the DVD recorder.

Oh also, please check your DVD drive itself to make sure it is firmly inserted into the drive bay - sometimes it might be loose.

What program are you using to copy the DVDs?  Are they copy protected/encoded (commercial DVDs)?

Well, it could be a Thinkpad issue but most of these DVD copying programs are known to be poorly written and full of bugs:
 
 
You can try DVD43 in conjunction with DVDshrink as an alternative which works 90% of the time.
