Use the freeware Belarc Explorer to find out what CD-DVD burning program you have, like NTI, Roxio, or others, then open it, and their help programs MAY be clear enough to tell you what to do. They are written by Chinese for Koreans or Japanese, and translated into English. You don't need a manual for your hardware. It may not even be detected without a non-microsoft burning program.

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.

Will this burner work on dual layer discs?

Pioneer has released Firmware for the DVR-107D DVD Writer and DVR-A07XLA & XLB DVD Writer. This release # is 1.18.
(a ZIP file download, but uncompresses to an .EXE, as does site download. I can't uncompress the EXEs with Stuffit (standard) Expander v7.0x here, but Scott said he used version 8.0.2 )
Looks like we are getting closer to Dual Layer Support:
(although some have flashed NEC ND-2500A drives to DL 2510 model firmware, I doubt that Pioneer will release an official firmware update for the 107D to add dual-layer burning. Like other mfrs, I suspect they'll sell a new drive model with DL burning support.)
    For Models DVR-107D FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

I need driver for the dvd writer DVR-S111B , Comstar make. Where can i finf it

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.

Only dvd burners with Double Layer DL DVD R Media compatibility are able to burn the Double Layer Media. If your dvd burner does not have the capabilities, it is possible to be upgraded to burn Double Layer media, check your burner manufacturer for details. Other ways to say it is DVD+R DL media, Double Layer DL Media, Dual Layer Media, and DL DVD R Media.
