I have a IBM 8172 Thinkcentre small desk top PC & replaced the old AXVcd/DVD ROM drive with a Sony NEC Optiaric Dvd burner [AD-7200A ] & used device mgr to uninstall the AXV rom drive , the problem is every time I restart it reappears . I used reg-seeker & did a search for AXVcd/dvd & it could find nothing . Will this cause any problems with the Sony burner ?

Cheers Ozi

<<...every time I restart it reappears.>>

Reappears where?

Does your BIOS reflect it? Does Disk Management reflect it?

The BIOS is the first place to check, when wondering about the status of drives attached to the motherboard.

I am not comfortable going into BIO's & will leave it if it is not interfering with my burner .[ At times burner will not eject burnt disc ]

Update , only new Sony drive shows up in BIO'S .
