Why does it say I have a "BD-drive" on my laptop?

I recently formatted my toshiba a300 with windows 7. Everything went well with drivers and everything is working fine. But when I got into "my computer" under "devices and removable storage" it says I have two disk drives. One is the DVD RW Drive (D) and another called BD ROM Drive (Y) But I know I only have one disc drive and its not a BD drive?
Also it wont let me eject..

Did you happen to go ahead and install a CD/DVD/BD ISO mounting software like Alcohol 120%?
