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
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
