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.

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
