From what I gather it's Alcohol 120% creating a virtual drive, so I would check with that first.

Unkown DVD/CD-ROM in Device Manager

AVX is a "brand name" installed with Alcohol 120%, its a virtual drive so you can use it to read ISO images as if it were an actual CD only its being read off your hard drive or another source.
