Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.

I also have the same problem. I've tried all the above plus some added info. The floppy still works when I swap it with the DVD. Occasionally it works for a short time right after a hard boot but soon after it appears to uninstall. I have searched the net for answers to this problem without success. I tried the registry correction without avail. There has been some online comments that the problem appeared after an auto update from uSoft. I believe the problem is software or firmware related.

Try to remove the device from Device manager, and then reinstall or upgrade the driver.
If the error continues to occur, it may be possible to edit the operating system Registry to resolve the issue.
Click the Start button, press run and type regedit.

SOURCE: R40 Thinkpad CD drive
I also have an IBM R40 with a combo drive that showed the same symptoms. I switched the drive with two another two which I can assure that work 100% correctly, and the same problem happens. First the drive wasn't detected some of the times, or it got randomly "disconnected" while the laptop was on. Nowadays (about 1 year ago), the drive never gets detected, not by the BIOS or by the operating system (Linux, but also tried on Windows), even so, If I don't keep the drive disconnected, when the laptop boots the BIOS hangs for a long time like it was trying to detect the drive, but it doesn't. It turns out that is a system board problem. Hope this helps you on finding the solution. Regards
