Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook
I have a R40 with a DVD Burner. It was working fine up untill a few weeks ago. Now it only reads and burns CD'S. It will not read any DVD'S that I try. I have checked through the device manager and it says it is working correctly! Will it help if I try and find another driver for it?
