IBM R32 ultrabay is not recognized

\015 I bought an IBM R32 on eBay and have been happy with it but lately the ultrabay 200 is not recognizing devices. I have an FRU-27L3436 CD-ROM which was installed when I got it but soon the system kept telling me I had unplugged a device without stopping it while I was playing a cd. I replaced it with a 05k9159 DVD drive which came from a working R32 and it does the same thing. Neither is recognized in device manager but when I had to install Windows on a new HDD it was recognized in the player and loaded XP. I also have a LI-Ion battery for the ultralbay which is not recognized-when I install it on a cold swap and try to boot up, the laptop shuts down and reboots normally when I replace the cd or dvd drive in it. I checked the connector and it appears to be tight against the end of the bay. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Did you leave the battery in the R32 for long enough for it to charge up? (Like overnight?) Another thought is that if you bought the battery used, it may not be any good.
