LG GGC-H20L Blu-ray dvd-rw magically turns into "DVD-RAM"
Last week I bought a LG GGC-H20L Blu-ray dvd+rw drive, and after installing it (and powerdvd that came with it), everything worked fine until yesterday. I put in a blu-ray disc to watch and noticed that it wouldn't play in powerdvd or any other program. Upon checking the My Computer window, I noticed that the LG drive, which used to show up as "D: HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW GGC-H20L" was now showing up as "D: DVD-RAM". Corresponding with this change, blu-ray discs no longer work, however, both dvds and cds work perfectly fine. When checking both the Control Panel and the AnyDVD information screen, the drive still shows up as "HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW GGC-H20L" and AnyDVD seems to be able to read and indentify the blu-ray discs.
Is there any reason that my drive would suddenly turn into a DVD-RAM after working perfectly for a week, or am I looking at a defective unit here?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you updated AnyDVD HD? Blu Rays that can't be decoded show up as DVD-Ram.
That's not the problem, because discs that worked before no longer read. When the drive is empty, it says "D: DVD-RAM" and after it reads the blu-ray disc, the drive turns to "D: CD DRIVE".
