DVD-RW Name Changes When Blank DVD Inserted

I have installed a new DVD-RW that shows up in device mangager as the proper device. The drive works fine in all respects except that of a DVD burner. In "My computer" it's decscription with no disc in the drive is "DVD-RW Drive". As soon as a blank DVD (either + or -) is inserted, the description changes to "CD Drive". Any ideas?

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

Try this. When you go into device manager you see at the very top, Your computer/User name. Right click - Scan for hardware changes. I hope this works for you. This should find any hardware that has been recently inserted into your computer.

NEC DVD-RW 16x DL

If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
