    Hi Friends,

    Yesterday I got the Sony DVD Writer Model(DRU-820A) BOX Pack and when I
    connected the drive on my PC (Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard), the BIOS
    reported correctly as DVD RW DRU-820A. Also the Windows Device Manager
    Reported the Drive as DVD RW. But when I open the Windows Explorer it says
    the drive as "cd-drive".

    Why the Explorer reporting the drive as cd-drive instead of DVD RW? What
    could be problem or is this normal?

    I have another SONY DVD Reader, and the Explorer reports this drive as DVD
    Drive. So I am confused.

    Please advice
