Default DVD roms keep showing up as CD-rom and won't work

Appearantly my DVD-RW Drive, and DVD-rom drive keep showing up in my computer as CD-ROM.. So i go into hardware manager and they both said their appropriate model # however they had SCSI CD-rom tacked onto them..

Uninstalling and rebooting fixes the problem for one reboot but.. Any idea as to what is causing it? .. It has survived 3 clean reinstalls. seems to have started after an autoupdate hotfix but I can't find any leads to track it down as to which one..

Sig removed due to size. Please read the rules before adding your compliant sig. SigSanta

maybe try flashing the bios/ not sure if it would work but for some reason your system thinks its a scuzzi device so flashing the bios and updating it to a more recent ver. might help
