Loaded Windows Vista Home basic on my PC. All worked well while loading my programs. After a while the DVDs stopped working and Vista Home does not recognize the devices. On Device Manager it shows the drivers but it does not work.

Is there any reason as to why you do not want to replace the eternal DVD ROM drive? This would solve your issue all you do is load the recovery disks and finish the job. They are not that expensive and really easy to replace them. Just a thought? John
what kind of media are you loading? is this a DVD or a program disc? If this is a DVD disc, try loading a music CD or other type of disc to see if it is recognized. If so, its possible your PC DVD is unable to recognize that specifc type of DVD. Try other DVD's which you know worked before using Vista. Even though your machine says the device is working properly, check the Lenovo website for updated drivers for the DVD and the board chipset. Let me know if updating the drivers does not work. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can find out any more information from Lenovo.
You need to install the drivers, windows does not recognize these additional buttons until the proper drivers are loaded. Depending on manufacturer windows 7 drivers may or may not be available. Microsoft did something smart with windows 7 by allowing you to use windows vista drivers in windows 7. So if there are no win 7 drivers just download and install the vista drivers. Good luck!
