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.
Generally speaking most recent versions of Windows don't require additional drivers for CD\DVD burners to function. If you're looking for software to actually burn cd's then there are a number of freeware options out there (Google Free CD/DVD Burning Software), or you can pick up more advanced software locally at stores such as BestBuy.
Which operating System are you using?Optical drives never require a driver other than what is included with Windows XP. Windows detects the drive the moment you switchon after connecting and configuring in BIOS.You may need a firmware or recording software update.I can only suggest you make sure your drive firmware is latest offered
by the manufacturer/vendor and to insure your recording software is
update and to make sure your recording media is quality rated or
type/brand suggested by manufacturer. Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.
These are the possibilities: 1. You are trying to copy a disc which is copy protected and hence it may not show the actual size of disc.Please don't do piracy. I personally recommend it(although most home users buy DVD writer for pirating disc for themselves). 2. The black DVD which you are using is not compatible to your DVD writer make sure your DVD writer is compatible with the disc.There are different technologies used for blank DVDs e.g. DVD+R, DVD-R etc. 3. You are using a bad media, which normally happens in case of low cost local Black DVD, available at the cost of dust. 4. IF you have a lens cleaner disc, try also that. It may help. Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.
2.) Try the drive on another computer to see if it works.
3.) if it does you might need to Format and Reinstall on your computer.
but it does sound as if the problem is with your drive rather than your pc if you got warrenty i'd suggest you take it back if not then try it on anoter computer to ensure its the drive before getting a new one
