Question about IBM ThinkPad R32 2658 Notebook
I bought an IBM R32 on eBay and have been happy with it but lately the ultrabay 200 is not recognizing devices. I have an FRU-27L3436 CD-ROM which was installed when I got it but soon the system kept telling me I had unplugged a device without stopping it while I was playing a cd. I replaced it with a 05k9159 DVD drive which came from a working R32 and it does the same thing. Neither is recognized in device manager but when I had to install Windows on a new HDD it was recognized in the player and loaded XP. I also have a LI-Ion battery for the ultralbay which is not recognized-when I install it on a cold swap and try to boot up, the laptop shuts down and reboots normally when I replace the cd or dvd drive in it. I checked the connector and it appears to be tight against the end of the bay. Any ideas?
