LG super multi drive identified as CDROM by Windows XP
First, thank you for the excellent description. I wish more FixYa clients would provide complete information like that.
Unless you are having problems, I wouldn't worry about the product
designation in XP since it's LG drive that is identifying it as such during
XP's device discovery routine. Your new LG drive can handle all of the different DVD rewritable formats - i.e. DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW - so it appears that it is just using the first as its designator.
In my laptop, my LG DVD writer is designated as follows in Device Manager:
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA Device
LG describes it as a "Slim DVD Super-Multi Drive". I've had no problems with it, and it has worked flawlessly to burn CDs and DVDs.
