A quieter drive
With a new redesigned disc tray structure, the airflow in our drives is smoothed and operational noise reduced. Enhancements such as tunnel-like air intakes and ducts, plus a new smoother interior to the drive suppress noise and provide a quieter experience.
An eco-friendly drive
Smaller packaging - saves resources and fuel for transportation.
Increased life expectancy
The sound barrier design that traps noise inside the drive also works to keep dust outside the drive. This makes the newly developed drive much more dust resistant than previous models and drive failure due to dust is practically nonexistent.
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.
Top quality writing
Our chassis' design maximizes disc stability and write quality by reducing warping at high speed caused by disc vibration, especially on the outer areas of the disc.

An eco-friendly drive

  • Smaller packaging - saves resources and fuel for transportation.
  • Reduced power consumption on external USB drives which allows for eco-friendly USB bus-powered 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 quickly move forward 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 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 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions for the BDR-XD05S

    1. - Are both USB connectors needed for operation?

    Answer: When using a USB 3.0 port, only the main connector is needed. The small cabled secondary port is not needed. When using a USB 2.0 port, both connectors might be needed as some computers output less power than others through the USB ports. On some PCs, one USB cable is enough, but to be safe and to avoid write errors, connecting both USB cables is highly recommended. If using only one USB connector, the main USB connector must be used, not the secondary connector (short cable) that is attached to the main connector.

    2. - How can I get my disc out of the drive when it’s not powered?

    Answer: There is a lever on the bottom of the drive. Moving the lever back will cause the cover to open even when there is no power applied to the drive.

    3. - Is connection by USB 2.0 fast enough to watch Blu-ray titles?

    Answer: To watch Blu-ray titles, you need to read the Blu-ray Disc at 1x. To watch Blu-ray 3D titles, you need to read the disc at 2x. Connection by USB 2.0 can allow reading of Blu-ray Discs up to 6x, so USB 2.0 is more than enough in most operating environments. Of course with USB 3.0, its even more than enough. Note that in a Mac OS environment, Blu-ray playback requires additional software (not included).

    4. - 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.

    5. - Can I use the BDR-XD05S with other burning/playback/editing software?

    Answer: The BDR-XD05S will work with newer software in Mac OS X 10.10/10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6 and Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP SP3 environments. 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.

    6. - Does the BDR-XD05S work in a Mac OS X environment?

    Answer: The drive can operate in a Mac OS X environment (Mac OS X 10.10/10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6). In a Mac OS environment, use Finder to read and write to Blu-ray, DVD and CD media. Use DVD Player to play back DVD movies. Blu-ray playback requires additional software (not included).

    7. - Can I use the drive in a vertical orientation?

    Answer: No, the drive should only be used in a horizontal (lying down) orientation.

    8. - How can I change the PureRead and Auto Quiet Mode settings?

    Answer: PureRead and Auto Quiet Mode can be configured as well as enabled and disabled with the Pioneer BDR-XD05S Drive Utility. This utility is available for download on this website.

    9. - I started the Pioneer BDR-XD05S 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-XD05S) is used. Connect the drive to the computer and restart the BDR-XD05S utility.

    10. - Can I connect the BDR-XD05S to a PC through a USB hub?

    Answer: If the USB hub is powered (AC adapter), the BDR-XD05S may work, however the drive’s read and write speed may be reduced. The BDR-XD05S will not work if the USB hub is not powered.

    11. - 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 computer for high-definition copy protected content. For such content, an HDCP display (monitor/TV) is required and it must be connected to the computer 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 Macbook/iMacs/Notebook computers with built-in displays, but only when using external monitors.
