Default Sony cd+rw problems

ok here goes....I recently refomatted my drive,and in the process of doing so i realized that my cdrw status light was now blinking pretty fast and continuous...well to say the least i kept on my task and refomatted and reinstalled windows xp, figureing that it would eventually work again after i got xp reinstalled...ok well it didnt,and the light is still blinking and the drive wont eject..if i use the emergency eject it wont close either...i have unplugged the power,and all the other cables from it to try and reset it but nothing works...another strange thing is that my computer after refomatting is still reading the drive but the drive name has changed from (Sony CXD 1457R) to what it now reads (Sony boot CD+RW) all my other drives work fine and the computer seems to run fine as well question is my cd rw drive dead? if not does anyone know what might be the cause of my prob...and why is the drive saying sony boot cdrw now? please help...welp off to the sony site....
