Can you suggest which OS you are using?
Does this problem exist for all the CDs/DVDs?
Try to insert bootable CD and try boot from it and check if it works.
You can try blank cd and just write it using NERO and check.

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as ''CD'' Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Does the drive show any activity after a disk is inserted and does the LED light illuminate?
If the drive won't read the contents of any CD or DVD disk, then remove the drive an insert it again.
Insert a disk and see if the is activity, if there is nothing then most likely the drive is dead and you need a replacement.
Try and borrow a drive and test it in your laptop.

DVD-RW Name Changes When Blank DVD Inserted


p3, Did you try burning the DVD and it failed? You should try upgrading the firmware on DVD drive. http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=ODD+Products&typecode=300400&subtype=DVD+Writer&subtypecode=300405&model=TS-H552U&filetype=FM&language= Or, your just interested why Windows is calling your expensive DVD burner a measley CD Drive? Your Burner is an all-in-one.(I think) It plays(and burns) cd's and dvd's. Whatever program you use to burn has not informed Windows of its true intentions yet...Which is to burn a dvd or a cd. It doesn't know what you are burning until something tells it to. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
