The DVDROM on my Thinkpad T22 works fine with most (though not all) DVDs, but if I put a CD in the drive it just spins up, slows down, spins up, slows down etc. until it finally ignores it. I can very rarely get a CD working in it by taking out and putting it in again loads of time. Once it's actually redognized the CD it has no problem reading it.

I think it has failed.
Go to Control Panel...System... Device Manager... and locate CD or DVD Roms and UNINSTALL it. Then Reboot and it will automatically locate the CD / DVD Rom. You will have to acknowledge several screens wit naext and tes ect.
If it does not work, it's really easy to buy and replace.
Okay usb 1.1 and 2.0 the only diffrence is speed. Now say you do purchase a huge drive now your speed will be reflected when you tansfer data to and from the unit. Now what you can do to advoid this is there is a pcmica usb 2.0 card you can get about $45 bucks repsectivly that will cure the speed issues but the size really does not matter.. Enjoy
Please ce considerate and rate with the thumbs to your top right, and also leave some feeback if you will on how we did today. Thanks for using fixya.com
either you have a virus or a corrupted dll file.
eitherway, beside create a bootable CD or Floppy disk, and try to fix from there, thats' time a money.
the next best thing, is to reinsall the operating system.
the other option is get a new hard drive and install the operating system on that so you can preserve the data you have on the old one.
I assume with "boot menu" you mean the BIOS boot menu (the one you get
to if you press F12 during start up, before the Windows screen appears.)
Go to "Enter Setup"
Go to "Config", click "Enter"
Go down to "USB", click "Enter"
Make sure that "USB Bios Support" is enabled.
(Hit "Enter" again and choose between "enabled" and "disabled")
Hit "Esc" twice to go back to the main page.
Go down to "Startup", click "Enter"
Check if "USB CD" is in the list of boot options or excluded form booting.
Hit F10, confirm any changes you made (click "Enter" for 'yes') and reboot.
Tap or hold down F12 again and you should see the boot option menu again.
Note: I am not 100% sure if you can boot from a DVD externally.
I booted from the internal DVD drive fine with a Linux LiveCD. It is
possible that the T22 BIOS does not support external booting. Check you
version - the latest release from IBM is version 16ET32WW (1.12),
release date 06/03/2004. You find that info here.
I would really appreciate if you could come back here and leave a comment, so I (and maybe others?) can learn form this ;-)
