Frequently Asked Questions for the BDR-2209
1. - When installing the CyberLink software, why do I get the message "This software can only be installed with a Pioneer device. The setup will abort."?
Answer: The BDR-2209 must be connected to the computer through a SATA cable when installing the CyberLink software. Please ensure the BDR-2209 is connected and recognized by the operating system and then restart the software installation.
2. - Can I see the files I burned to a BDXL disc on any Blu-ray drive?
Answer: BDXL discs can only be read on BDXL drives.
3. - Can I use the BDR-2209 with other burning/playback/editing software?
Answer: The BDR-2209 will work with newer software in a Windows 7, Vista, or XP SP3 environment. However, as with all current Blu-ray drives, it will not work with playback software that does not support Bus Encryption. Bus Encryption was implemented into playback software in 2011.
4. - What is the Peak Power Reducer feature?
Answer: A small percentage of computers don't provide enough power to the drive during operation. In the case of a write operation, an error will occur, and the disc will be useless. To prevent this, the Peak Power Reducer feature, when enabled, monitors the power and can reduce the drive's peak power to ensure a stable operation.
5. - How can I change the PureRead, Auto Quiet Mode and Peak Power Reducer settings?
Answer: PureRead, Auto Quiet Mode, and Peak Power Reducer can be configured as well as enabled and disabled with the Pioneer BDR-2209 Drive Utility.
6. - I started the Pioneer BDR-2209 Drive Utility. Why are all the options grayed-out and it says “Target is not found”?
Answer: Ensure that the drive is connected and recognized by the computer before starting the utility. Ensure that the correct utility (BDR-2209) is used. Connect the drive to the PC with a SATA and power cable and restart the BDR-2209 utility.
7. - Why can’t I play Blu-ray titles or high definition copy protected content, but I can play DVDs?
Answer: From January 1, 2012, all playback software is required to disable analog outputs from the PC for high-definition copy protected content. For such content, an HDCP display (monitor/TV) is required and it must be connected to the PC using a digital DVI (DVI-D), HDMI, or DisplayPort cable. The best way to know if a display supports HDCP is if it has HDMI inputs. The next best way is to look at the display's user manual. When playing non-copy-protected high definition video (such as home videos), or copy protected DVDs, the computer’s analog outputs are enabled and non-HDCP display systems will work. Note: This limitation is not applicable to notebook computers with built-in displays, only when using external monitors.
