It uses a blue laser (actually a violet laser) to read the disc, which allows for greater storage capacity compared to the wavelength red laser used for DVDs.

BD-ROM can only read audio and video data and can store up to 25 GB on a single-layer disc and 50 GB on a dual-layer disc. The format is the same size as a CD.
