dont know if this is in right area but here goes.

yeah basically my dvd drive, when it has a dvd in it says its a cd drive. for some reason it thinks i have two dvd drives, drive D: which is a dvd-rw drive and drive E: which is a dvd drive. i only have one on my laptop a dvd-rw. this is when i dont have a blank dvd disc in when i do the D: becomes a CD-drive. this is interfering with my burning because i wanna burn a dvd but it keeps asking me if i wanna burn a cd, which i dont. here are what drives it says thy are:

optiaric DVD RW AD-5540A
DKZ L27CX67C9AZ8 SCSI CdRom device

havent a clue whats going on and why i cant burn a dvd disc. please help.
