DVD-RW Drive shows as CD drive in WinXP

[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SH-W162Z / TS-H552Z. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My Samsung DVD writer (SH-W162Z) shows as a DVD drive in My Computer, but the moment I put a blank DVD in the drive, the name changes to “CD Drive”. On burning any DVD ISO image, the file system shows as CDFS. When I create a installation DVD from any ISO file, the installation stops after sometimes with a message “Insert the CD No2” or something like that, which proves that it is behaving like a CD drive. I have uninstalled all the IDE controllers and CD Drives from Device Manager and re-installed them without any results. How can I solve this problem?

This is a known cosmetic bug of windows, nothing to be worried about :slight_smile:
