Read cd-rom drive info

Hi, Sorry for the simple question, as I know it’s been answered. I can’t seem to find it right now.
I want to read the hardware info from my cd-rom drive. It’s actually a hd-dvd drive, but has no stickers or anything on it. I want to read its flash from the command line. I don’t know if the “flash” is exactly what I want to read, but whatever displays its info… model, serial, that stuff.
(final goal being - I want to see if I can flash it to read blu-ray, but I need to figure out what drive it is first!)

So, what’s the command to query the hardware info for the drive?

thanks a lot

Use the hwinfo command (use root user for more verbose information)

hwinfo --cdrom
