Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook
I can not run my DC-ROM
the CD-tray doesn't come out(the light in the samsung CD_ROM blinks)
also there is no information about the drivers in the device manager
If the light blinks but the CDROM doesn't eject, you can try inserting a paperclip or other small object into the tiny hole on the faceplace of the drive. That will manually eject it and you can use it that way. It sounds like more of an issue of the drive being stuck than not configured properly. Does the drive show up in my computer?

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
