I've searched the forums and didn't find a solution to this that didn't include uninstalling Daemon Tools. I obviously use it on a daily basis and want to keep it, but my DVD/CDRW drive no longer works. I'm using a IBM Thinkpad T42 (about 5 yrs old) with WinXP Prof. I have Tools Version 4.10.0218. Could someone help me out?

I've already tried deleting the driver under device manager and restarting - it reinstalled the drive but the drive still doesn't work. Thanks!

Why do you think your problem is related to DAEMON Tools?
Does this drive work on another computers or on your computer but without DT?

As that obsolete version 4.10.218 can't be officially downloaded (+activated) anymore,
i'm assuming your installation is quite old.
Therefore i don't think your problem is related to DAEMON Tools.

heinz1218 is talking about a laptop ;)

I just reinstalled WinXP on my IBM and that's the version of Daemon tools I had from awhile ago. What's the common fix for this? I know I had this problem before with multiple version of Daemon tools but I can't remember how I fixed it...

DAEMON Tools Professional Help: No virtual drive in My Computer (http://daemonpro-help.com/problems_and_solutions/no_virtual_drive_in_my_computer.html)

But you'd better to install the latest DAEMON Tools version.
