If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.
It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

did you remove all of the original software as this can cause a software problem. you will need to remove the new software and the old software.then shut down the computer then. let it start up. turn back off again install the dvd writer then turn back on now should load the proper driver for the dvd rom. then install the software.
this is a usb drive, the computer does not know you have an external drive, cause there is no operating system to be able to read it.
if you need to install a new Windows 7 on your computer, and you don't have an internal CD/DVD reader, i suggest you try to install it from a USB. refer to these links for more information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd535816.aspx and: http://www.pcworld.com/article/165159/install_windows_7_from_an_external_hard_drive.html
Then, after you install the Windows 7 first, then you will be able to install the Pioneer DVR-XD10 and use it. I don't think you can do it the other way around.
Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".
Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.
what operating system? If windows XP, be sure you are the administrator of the machine. What is the error message? Try to uninstall the the previous device driver of the cdrom and have it automatically detect the new drive...then retry the suite installation. pls give feedback
Try to use another DVD. you told you tried you old DVD from your toshiba. maybe is not compatible.. try in another.. then use your DVD in another laptop if the same from problem.check your board and DVD connection...if this under warranty bring to warranty..
if in Bios also can not detect this is hardware problem...
