Re: Wrong DVD/CD drive type

Did the Pioneer come with its own drivers if so then install those if not search for the correct drivers youll find it will recognize the dvd?.

Trying to use Pioneer DVR-XD10 USB 2.0 external DVD/CD writer to install win7 and getting no driver error


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:

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.

good luck.

I NEED THE Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-107D DRIVERS ,I just got it with no drivers but it works good with the windows drivers, but I still would like to get the right drivers that came with it. Thank you,,,

Designated drivers for DVD-RW drives do not exist! They work with the native Windows drivers. The CD/DVDs that are usually shipped with the drives include a burning software and maybe some additional tools - but never drivers - just because there's no such thing!
If you would like to download the drive's firmware (which is the internal integrated software of the drive), look here. Do it at your own risk.

Best regards,

DVD & CD drives not recognized after uninstall Nero

plain reinstallation of windows won't solve the problem, either you edit your registry to clean it up of all the nero entries or to install windows in clean mode, I mean, you need to reformat or remove windows completely first fron your system.
