The manual likely is at the Pioneer website. But why do you need it? These drives stick in your computer pretty easily, and only function if you have a good DVD burning program installed. Did it come with an installation CD? Your burning program may be on that. If you run into trouble, just call Pioneer--they owe it to you.
You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties, then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.
my sugestion is not to burn at 16x but to burn at 8x and use another burning software that allowsx you to burn at 8x speed as I've found I get alot of errors at max burn on my burner.
so I dropped the burnner speed and have not had any problems with burning.
hope this helps
