Question about IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook
I installed a new CD-RW/DVD player in my IBM 600x. It will play and record in the CD mode but this drive does not play DVD movies. When a movie is put in the player the player light comes on and off in 2-3 second cycles and the hard drive light is on simultaneously. After about 30-40 seconds both lights go off and nothing more happens. I have installed a DVD decoder but to no avail. My system operates on Windows XP Pro, with 576 MB of RAM.
I don't have another machine that it will fit.

Tips for a great answer:
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R
and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the
newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are
recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These
recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be
finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the
disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data
in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks
(but not of recording them) and vice-versa.
There you are.

The same model ThinkPad
can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you
know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all
the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers,
write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which
driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on
your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB
site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device
drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).
