Mjeh, the driver rollback option is greyed out. Unlucky me.

Well I did give you two options - System restore?

Sadly didn't make a difference. It's still just a disk drive.

Well I don't know what to say? You could remove the drive, reboot without it, reinstall it and see if Windows will pick it up again, but....

Outside of that if it's really bothering you, you can try a Repair Install, though I can't say that'll fix it either so....

Is the drive really performing badly or is it just the name that's bothering you? If it's just a name I'd leave well enough alone.

My two cents.
