Needs driver for vista or win 7 Sony VRD-VC10 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

Sony does not support this burner for any operating system for Win2k and XP. The VRD-VC30 is supported in Win7 but no earlier models (from the Microsoft Compatibility Center). The Vista Compatibility Center lists the VRD-VC20 as unknown for Vista support.

There are work-arounds. Install XP as a virtual computer or in a dual boot configuration on your system and install the hardware on the "XP box". If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install the XP mode for a free virtual computer. (This requires you to download two programs from Microsoft and install them (Virtual PC and the XP mode itself). Otherwise, you will need a valid XP license to install in the virtual computer software. The dual boot may work better for you since virtual computers can't share files from the main computer directly. They need to be transfered to external media or a different partition or disc that unmounted from the real computer and mounted on the virtual computer.

I hope this helps.

VRD-VC10 says "format mismatch"

Check the manual - some DVD recorders could only handle certain brands of disks, and most will not handle Dual Layer types. Try Sony brand DVD-R disks (4.7G)

Go to the company which made the software for the device and you can download it from there. That is what I did. You need to up grade from what came with the unit.

if your writer is showing in My Computer as a removable drive, you should bea able to right click on the drive icon and select Eject, but the programme you are using to burn must not be set to eject after finalising the disc in the preferences or settings.
