CD/DVD Drive File System: RAW

Okay, so i reformatted my computer recently and i've got everything working okay. The only problem is, when i go to "My Computer" my removable storage devices (CD and DVD ROM) are showing up as harddrives.


From the picture, it appears that i have 4 hard drives. When in actuality, Drive D and E are my CD ROM and DVD ROM respectively. I did a little research into and i found that the File System is coming up as RAW, instead of unknown or what it is supposed to be. From other computers i've checked, the file system should be Unknown.



How do i change the File System back to what it is supposed to be?
