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!

is it detected by actual programs? can you burn with a burning program like imgburn? sometimes OS default thinking you MUST be trying to play an audio cd, dumb i know.

i have a very similar drive and when i click "computer" it lists BD-ROM then CD DRIVE . Is that the same as you?

But I use it all time with IMGBURN and other programs. What programs have you tried using? Or are you just trying to use inside explorer?

Yes!!:)

I didnt even bother trying to open IMGBURN, because I put in a dvd it will not even start to spin?

Say it supports optical drives, have you checked on drivers and bios? Tried different settings in the card's bios?

Double check the obvious little things, like a different disc, a full reset, etc.

If possible try the burner and/or card on another machine, it may just be DOA and those cards usually made pretty cheaply.
