CD-ROM drive not shown in Win 98 Explorer; "working properly" in Device Mgr; 390E

Discussion in 'IBM Thinkpad' started by mehlREMOVETHIS, Oct 9, 2006.

  1. Hello --

    Info: IBM 390E laptop

    Can anyone tell me how to make the CD drive appear in Windows Explorer?

    Before experiencing this problem, clicking the drive resulted in
    "E:\ is not accessible. The device is not ready.

    I removed it from the Device Manager.
    Upon reboot it "found a new device",
    but the subject problem remains.

    I have updated the CD firmware.

    Might the drive simply need cleaning?

    Thanks for any help.
