Is This A BluRay Rom Drive?

it says "BD-Rom" in the Driver section, and on my PS3 it says BD for BluRay Disk, so id think BD-Rom means BluRay...what do you guys think?

What are you asking? You have a Bluray Drive in your PC? Than that would be an appropriate Icon.

I have virtual drive software installed that labels the virtual drive as "BD-ROM".

Look in your programs list and see if you have a virtual drive installed. (Daemon Tools, Elby Virtual Drive) etc.

If you have no virtual drive software installed, chances are its a Blu-Ray drive.

Am I missing something here?

Device Manager, MSINFO32 don't answer the question?

Or maybe

Just download Belarc Advisor a free analizing program. Run it and it will produce a list of all your PC components. You should see the drive details there. By the way, this drive is presumably installed in a bay on your PC, so what does it say on the front panel?

EDIT

Sorry karlsnooks we crossed I think but then great minds think alike I suppose

mitchell,

We all make mistakes - that's why pencils have erasers on the end!

You mean you didn't code using an ink pin?

mitchell,

A reference to the good old days when a programmer wrote his code on coding sheets and to indicate that one didn't make coding errors (or to at least leave that impressions with the neophytes) you would make sure to be seen coding using an ink pin.
