Default Windows Labels cd/dvd-rw drive as cd

My old laptop (acer aspire 3610) after re installing windows seems to only recognize my cd/dvd drive as a cd drive. In the BIOS it is labeled as a cd/dvd drive but the drive can't boot from a dvd or read a cd. In windows it's given a generic cd drive and the acer website doesn't have a driver for the cd/dvd player. Any thoughts on it? The drive is a Philips SCB5265.
