I need to find out the capabilities of a Blu-ray drive I have. Is there a utility that can report this information?

To be more specific I want to know the drive's writing capabilities, i.e. if it can write to blank Blu-ray disks.

SiSoftware Sandra is an excellent well-rounded tool too.

I found I can get these details using the Nero Info Tool.

You should accept your own answer to prevent your question from being shown as unanswered. Cheers. – Steve Mar 8 '11 at 3:29
I will. but the system doesn't let me accept my own answer unless I wait for like 3 days. The question is still open for answering if anyone else can give a better answer so, it's still "unanswered" till I accept one. :) – 7wp Mar 8 '11 at 7:44
