I have an IBM Thinkpad R50e. The DVD drive does not work. It does not recognize the CD and DVDs I put in. When I go to the device manager, it has an exclamation point. How can I fix this? Thanks.


Try downloading the latest DVD driver.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

Thinkpad 2647 No sound on CD or DVD


Call IBM/Lenovo. For about $60, they will provide a complete set of "Recovery CDs" for the ThinkPad. That software will include a DVD-player and the correct sound-drivers. Or, check IBM's "support" web-site -- you may be able to download the correct drivers.

New ibm x61 does not read DVD


It sounds like you may need a DVD decoder, also called a codec. You can find codecs at IBM's support site or download.com. Try a codec or different codec to get the x61 to read the burned disc. Also keep in mind that some drives are just picky when it comes to reading burned DVD's.

IBM thinkpad x31 w/ultrabay 2000 blu-ray drive question


If the bay is a DVD drive Blue Ray will work as long as you have a newer DVD decoding software. There are some decoders or codecs at IBM's support site, such as WinVid. If the codecs at IBM do not work with Blue Ray, then try download.com and search for DVD playing software.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.

DVD No Picture


You need to reinstall the DVD decoding software, install newer decodeing software, or update your media player. Your media play may still have issues after the update if you don't have a good decoder. Try IBM's support site or filehippo.com for DVD decoding software.
