My Samsung Netbook is not reading the Local Disk Drive (D: ) right. I was using it to hold my gaming videos then this afternoon i turn it on and the netbook started to recognize the drive as a CD Drive. And it being a Netbook there is no cd drive. So what exactly happened here.

So, what kind of drive is it? What is it usually labeled as?

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

Without knowing the exact Samsung model to look up it is hard to say.

But since it is a netbook I will assume there is only one physical hard drive partitioned into two parts. The second, D: is probably the restore partition.
