Looking for the fastest drive in the market but already have software? Then the BDR-209DBK is the drive for you. The BDR-209DBK drive is perfect for system builders, for those looking to upgrade to a fast Blu-ray burner, or for those who already have software. The BDR-209DBK is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 16x on BD-R (25GB) media and up to 14x on BD-R dual layer (50GB) media, which is the fastest in the market! The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats. Click on the Specifications tab to see all supported media formats, as well as the read and write speeds achievable. Want to watch Blu-ray 3D titles? Well the BDR-209DBK drive is 3D capable. All you need is 3D playback software and a 3D display system and you're ready to go. Running out of hard drive space? Afraid of losing your valuable files when your hard drive crashes? With Blu-ray BD-R dual layer (DL) discs, you can store the equivalent of 10 single layer DVDs. Now you can have a backup you can trust and with fewer discs. The BDR-209DBK drive has features such as a QuickPlay which enables movies discs to be ready faster, a Noise Suppression design to minimize noise, an Anti-Dust design to increase durability, and Precision Writing Technology to minimize write errors. And of course being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-209DBK drive supports a wide range of blank media.

This drive does not need drivers - You'd simply need to purchase or install some software to read Blu-Ray discs as Windows does not feature this built-in. -Jakef

Answer by Website User on 23rd September 2014
Most likely you just need to have some Blu-ray software installed as Windows does not have this built in and so would not be able to read the disc. -Danlevan
