cd/dvd drive showing up as bd-rom drive

I have an HP dv6000 as of recently my cd/dvd drive has been working fine, now it is showing its self as a bd-rom drive. It is not a bd drive, and it does not read anything. I have put in cds, movies, and program disks, and it spins them for a few seconds then stops. when I right click on my E:\ drive, bd-rom drive, and go to properties under hardware it is showing Hitachi then a product number of some sort, and ATA device. I assume this is the actual divce, but it also shows what seems to be a random string of letters and numbers then SCSI CD-ROM drives. I have gone into device manager and removed the second of the two, with no luck. I have removed both from device manager and restarted, still no go. I have gone into regedit and removed the upper and lower, which actually there where no lower, from Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 in local machine, and restarted. When I removed the fillters there where about 14 of those 4d36e..... some did and some didnt have and upper fillter, and none as I said had lower. I am stuck with reinstalling windows, which I dont want to do. Please help

Have you tried to uninstall or roll the drivers back?

System spec's would really help so we could get an idea what kind of drive we are talking about. It may be a cd-rom drive and your trying to play a dvd, need more info to go on.
