My thinkpad r32's IR port covered is opaque (unlike others which are amber and transparent) but when i check the entries in my system an IBM IRDa is installed and is working just fine. It comes to me that my R32 comes with an onboard IRDa but the manufacturer disables it by placing an opaque cover that renders the port unusable. Am I correct? Can I take out the cover to enable it?

Your laptop has USB 1.1. It won't support anything running 2.0 because of power constrictions. 2,0 has a power line and 1.1 does not. as far as upgrading the hardware, the chipset is not designed for 2.0 so it will run a 4 port 2.0 as 1.1 because there is no provision for power (voltage). Hope this helps.
If you want to restore the thinkpad you must backup your files from windows drive(usually it is C: Drive) By pressing F11 you can restore the system. i.e windows goes back to default settings or manufacturer settings.(Settings when you purchased laptop) other software you installed after buying is also erased.so before doing restore backup your personal files. i think it solws your confusion.
The restart command does not power off your R32 but does a soft reboot of the r32, if you want to have a power down and physicaly power off and startup then you need to select shutdown and then turn the R32 back on manually. Cheers.
Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA.
If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
