New DVD-RW drive mystery

Hello all -

I have a new Sony DW-D22A (BYS2)<--- firmware vers.) dvd burner.

When I put in a blank DVD-R disc, the drive changes to say CD Drive. When I
eject it, it turns back to DVD-RW drive. Is this normal behavior or is
there a way to keep this from happening?

I've already checked the Sony site for firmware updates but there are not
any at this time.

then there's no problem, ROM icons change when you put media i them.

no worries.

Well I still don't understand why it would change to CD drive when a DVD-R
is inserted,
but ok.

My LG DVDRW does the same thing as you describe. Why? Probably because it
is a blank disk and the drive / XP doesn't know what it is, therefore
defaults to calling it a CD. Just a guess.
