Want the fastest Blu-ray burner currently in the market?  Looking for Pioneer's most powerful and full featured drive?  Don't want to settle for less than the best?  Then the BDR-2209 is the perfect drive for you.   

The BDR-2209 is an internal SATA Blu-ray, DVD, and CD burner that supports the 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-2209 is bundled with CyberLink Media Suite 10, which includes PowerDVD™ 10, PowerDirector® 10, and Power2Go® 7 and supports Windows 8.

PowerDVD 10 delivers award-winning playback software and will upscale standard-definition content to look better on HD displays. 
PowerDirector 10 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?  Don't trust a hard drive with 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 16x2 write speeds on BD-R media, you can do it fast.

The BDR-2209 also has features such as PowerRead™, Auto Quiet mode, PureRead2, and QuickPlay.  PowerRead3can 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 QuickPlay reduces the time between inserting a disc and that disc being ready.  For movies on DVD and Blu-ray, the disc is ready faster than with previous Pioneer drives. 

Being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-2209 drive supports a wide range of blank media. 

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

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™).

 

Faster burning
Up to 16x2 writing on BD-R single-layer discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R triple-layer discs.
Get to your files faster
With QuickPlay, the amount of time between inserting a ROM disc, and that disc being ready, has been reduced.  For movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the disc is ready faster when compared to previous Pioneer drives.  
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 move forward quickly to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback3.
A smarter drive
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and 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 possible4.
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.

CYBERLINK SOFTWARE INCLUDED

PowerDVD™ 10 - Delivers award-winning playback quality for Blu-ray and DVD movies on a PC and upscales standard-definition content to look better on HD displays.

PowerDirector® 10 - Edit and author your home videos to Blu-ray Disc or DVD, or upload them to social media sites.

Power2Go® 7 - Store or share valuable personal files on a secure and portable disc.

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.
