Udev linking my devices wrong

I installed 2.6/udev the other day and it appears to have gotten my CD drives backwards (all the CD links point to the DVD device and all the DVD links point to the CD device). Is there a way I can fix this? I'm looking at the udev rules.d file but I'm kinda lost on what to do to change it.

Try cd /etc/udev/rules.d
grep DVD *
grep CD *

That should tell you which files are referencing the CD and DVD.
Then this link:
Should help you.
