Xp says DVD is CD

I have Win XP Pro. running on my system with :
Liteon 16X DVD drive ... It works fine reads DVD,CD's but when I open up Windows Explorer it shows :

D: CD-RW
E: CD Drive (instead of DVD)

In Device manager it shows Liteon DVD under the CD Drives Menu ....

Please advise ????

  1. That's normal. If you check further in device manager under driver tab, you should see that both DVD and CD drives share the same driver (something like cdrom.sys). I guess the M$ programmers were just too lazy to categorize optical drives.
