Thinkpad R51 CD/DVD Driver missing

I just rebooted my System and now the Driver for my CD/DVD Combo (TEAC DW-225) is missing. Tried to download it but i found nothing that would help me. There is only a DOS-Driver on but that one needs a floppy-drive!!??!!??!!

Has anyone an idea where i can find a useful driver for following device:

IBM Thinkpad R51 / 1829 - K6G / S/N: 99-LFWK8

Thanks ...

Download "DRIVER MAX" it will automaticlly find devices, and find the drivers for them, then you choose what to update. And best of all it's free.

Draivar teac dw-552g

Here is the drivers you requested,

If the unit is not functioning properly, it may be that the optical eye is dirty. Use a disk cleaner made for this purpose, or a can of compressed air for computers, and shoot air towards the optical eye.

(The eye is located on the bottom of the drive, under the slide out disk tray)

I need decoder

decoder usually means software also called a "codec" those are either automatically installed by windows or manually. If what you are getting ie no video (black player window) but do hear sound then this is your problem.

I use the K-lite codec pack and have yet to find something I can't play. There are others as well. You can download any of the packages at The basic one is all you need but the other bigger versions include a few extras. Install, reboot and you should be fixed.

CD-R/DVD Drive with "missing or corrupted driver"

You might be best off to take your computer back in time.

Start > Help and Support > Undo changes made to my computer > Restore my computer to an earlier time > Pick a date at which time the cd was working properly. This will fix the driver problem..

Please let me know if this works for you, or if you have problems doing it.
