i have a DVD rom drive (F) and a DVD burner drive (E). the DVD burner plays DVDs fine but when i put a blank DVD in the name changes from "DVD-RW Drive" to "CD drive". i'm currently without a burning program because the place where we bought this computer from gave us nero 6 disk but no serial #, so i have bin buring files by copying and pasting them into E: drive. i have only bin doing this on CD-R's and it has worked but i can't burn anything onto DVD+R's.

so basically how do i get it to read them as DVD's and not CD's?

I'd imagine that when you get a DVD burning program installed, it will react accordingly to the blank DVD.
