I'd like to import Ghost in the Shell: Arise from Japan.

I only have a DVD drive, but the disc is a Blu-Ray optical disc. However, I am told that this optical disk is "backwards compatible" with a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit.

How can I check to see if my machine has a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit?

Given that the title of the window states "TSSTCorp DVD+-RW" I believe it's a DVD/RW and not a Blu-Ray. Check the logos on or near the bezel of the optical drive.

You should see BD in the name of the device in Device Manager if you have a Blu-Ray drive.
