Blu Ray not working off raid card....

Thank you for looking at my problem I put in a a sata card for my friend, and a blu-ray burner. But for some reason the computer seems to see it as a cd drive. I open computer and it says BD drive, and I can click eject. It will open but will not see any dvd I put in. The sata card is Silicon Image Sil3512 2-Port Serial ATA PCI Controller Card, and the blu-ray is LG WH14NS40K. Is this card only for hard drives? Thanks for any help!

Hi,
If you look under drive properties tab for the LG in the Computer windows and the devices name and model number and type are listed then the SATA card is identifying the LG drive correctly. So the drive will play CD's? Will it do anything when you put a DVD in? Does the drive try to read it? Try a program like VLC VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework! This will play CD's, DVD's and Blu Ray discs. It is possible the LG drive is just plain DEAD ON ARRIVAL and does not work. Your SATA card will be fine with any SATA device as long as you don't try to boot from them without your main bios giving you the option as add in card.
