Hi there.
It should make no difference what device the computer see's flash as providing you can read and write to the Sandisk.
I am test the X64 RC edition of Win7 myself and have come across the same issue and for the life of me i couldn't work out why the OS saw the drive as CD/DVD, in one case the PC saw my flash drive as a CD drive and DVD drive both displayed separately (which was strange).
Nevertheless the flash still works and i have had no problems with it.

Kind regards and thanks for using FixYa!!
