New PC problems

Hello.

I recently rebuilt my computer with new components. I kept my old CD/DVD player however which happens to be a IDE device.
My problem is that the new MB does not have a IDE connector so I purchased a new converter so that I can connect to a SATA port. The player is seen in explorer but is shows as a BD Rom Drive. Does anyone know how I may be able to remedy my situation short of buying a new player?

Thanks very much for looking into this for me..................................chik
