I was just wondering if there's a way to make CD/DVD drives appear under their own File System types in Windows Explorer through the registry or elsehow, just like with FAT32, exFAT and NTFS drives, etc.

If not then it'll just have to be a feature that I suggest to Windows and Microsoft

Thanks guys :)

Since the file system type on optical media is directly tied to the actual type of optical media, why would one need this information.

I guess you could argue about the version of UDF used for DVD versus CD, or whether CDFS is being used.

I just know that it's an optical disk and uses a file system specific to that media type. Most other magnetic media can be formatted in any of a number of file system formats, so it's useful to have that data presented.
