As explained by the name itself, Optical Info is a Windows tool designed to serve the purpose of detecting the optical drives’ read/write capabilities. It helps with deciding whether the CD/DVD drives on a system is a CD Rom, DVD Rom, CD Writer, DVD/CD Rewriter, CD Rewriter+DVD Combo, etc. CD and DVD drives often do not display their capabilities on the front of the computer and this is when such a tool comes handy. It also helps in cases you have multiple optical drives installed on the system. An important advantage of the utility is to see which drive is which by selecting the drive letter for each. That lets you decide which of them is faster at read/write.
The better way to identify and manage the drives!
