Well, Bluray is a type of storage, like DVD or CD.  HD merely refers to visuals that are greater than standard definition.  A television displays a set number of horizontal "lines", with what we currently call full HD having 1080 lines.  Bluray is capaple of storing HD video.

As a rough guideline, HD is anything in excess of 720p.

The OP may have been referring to the differences between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD optical disk formats.

Right now, the biggest difference between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD is that HD-DVD has been abandoned and is now considered to be defunct.

For details have a read of: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hd-dvd
