So I recently received my external blu-ray "notebook RW" optical drive and it's not working right off the bat. As soon as I connect it to the computer, the computer recognizes an input, but views it instead as a this (a grayed out usb storage media icon). I tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, no dice. The computer reads the drive as "initio ini-3910" but the model number that's on the drive itself says "ECD819-SU3" and drivers for both are a no go. I've tried the optical drive on two computers in both usb 2.0 and 3.0 but neither work. Lastly, when I looked at the properties in device manager under events it said "device not migrated" and I checked that out but still couldn't find a solution.

I'm stumped.
