Overview

Looking for our most powerful and full featured drive?  Don't want to settle for less than the best?  Then the BDR-2207 is the perfect drive for you.  The BDR-2207 is an internal SATA Blu-ray, DVD, and CD burner that supports the new BDXL format, which has available triple layer (TL) and quad layer (QL) Blu-ray media1.

Need software to tackle all your playback, editing, authoring and burning needs?  The BDR-2207 is bundled with CyberLink Media Suite 8, which includes PowerDVD 10 BD3D, PowerDirector® 9, and Power2Go® 7.  PowerDVD 10 BD3D delivers award winning playback software and supports playback of Blu-ray Disc 3D titles.  PowerDVD will even convert your 2D video files and DVDs into a 3D experience, and will upscale standard-definition content to high-definition quality.  PowerDirector 9 allows you to import your home movies, edit them, and then author them to Blu-ray Disc or DVD, or upload them to social media sites.  Power2Go 7 gives you the ability to burn your valuable files to Blu-ray (including triple and quad layer BDXL discs), DVD or CD media.  With BDXL support, you can now back up your files with fewer discs than ever before.

Running out of hard drive space?  Afraid your hard drives will crash and you will lose your irreplaceable files?  With triple layer and quad layer BDXL media, you can store up to 128GB on a single disc.  That's the equivalent of 27 single layer DVD discs or 15 dual layer DVD discs.  And with up to 12x2 write speeds on BD-R and BD-R DL media, you can do it fast.

The BDR-2207 also has features such as PowerRead™, Auto Quiet mode, PureRead2, and QuickStart.  PowerRead can provide smoother movie playback when a disc has fingerprints or minor surface scratches.  Auto Quiet mode intelligently adjusts the disc rotation speed to reduce noise (useful while watching movies or listening to music), PureRead automatically adjusts drive parameters to minimize sound glitches during music playback, and QuickStart reduces by 40% the time between inserting a disc and that disc being ready.   

Being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-2207 drive supports a wide range of blank media.  Click on the "Specifications" tab to see all the media formats supported and the maximum read and write speeds for each format.  The Media Support List in the "Manuals & Brochures" tab shows the maximum read and write speeds for each Media ID (MID).

Remember...data doesn't exist until it exists twice! So secure your data by backing it up on a disc.

 

Drive Features

Store more data
…Up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXL™ format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray Disc™).

 

Watch 3D movies
The BDR-2207 is 3D compatible and comes bundled with 3D playback software.  All you need for your 3D experience is a 3D display system3.
Faster burning
Up to 12x2 writing on BD-R single-layer and dual-layer discs.  6x writing on BD-R triple-layer and quad layer discs.
Get to your files faster
The amount of time between inserting a disc, and that disc being ready, has been reduced by 42%.  
 
Smooth movie playback
Scratches, fingerprints and other abnormalities on the surface of a disc can sometimes cause Blu-ray and DVD movie playback to stop.  When a PowerRead enabled drive is not able to read through obstructed areas of a disc, it will attempt to quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback4.
A smarter drive
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and will adjust their speed automatically – high speed for data transfer, and low speed for music or movie playback.
 
A better music experience
Scratches and fingerprints on your CDs can cause them to skip. A drive normally makes a calculated guess at the unreadable data and attempts to correct this to match the original music. However this is not 100% accurate. PureRead, when enabled, makes the drive reread the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible5.
Wide blank media support
Pioneer strives to have best in class performance over a wide range of media – our drives achieve this for a large variety of BD and DVD media. Refer to the drive’s media support list for all supported media and the write speed that can be achieved.

    Frequently Asked Questions for the BDR-2207

     

    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-2207 must be connected to the computer through a SATA cable when installing the CyberLink software. Please ensure the BDR-2207 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-2207 with other burning/playback/editing software?

    Answer: The BDR-2207 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-2207 Drive Utility. This utility is provided on the CyberLink software disc. The utility is not automatically installed with the CyberLink software. To start the utility, go to “X:\Pioneer Drive Utilities\BDR-2207” where “X” is the drive where the Cyberlink software disc is loaded.  Ensure that the BDR-2207 is connected to the computer and then double click on “Pioneer BDR-2207 Drive Utility.exe”.

     

    6. - I started the Pioneer BDR-2207 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-2207) is used and not the BDR-XD04 utility. Connect the drive to the PC with a SATA cable and restart the BDR-2207 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.
