  •     USB 3.0
  •     Ultra lightweight and portable

  •     Supports BDXL, Blu-ray, DVD and CD media

The BDR-XD05TB is one of the world's smallest and lightest BD/DVD/CD portable burners supporting BDXL.  The ultra-compact USB 3.0 drive can read and write to all BDXL discs1 including BD-R triple-layer 100GB media, BD-R quad-layer 128GB media, and BD-RE triple layer 100GB media, as well as conventional Blu-ray discs (single-layer 25GB media and dual-layer 50GB media).  The portable device, measuring only 5.2" (W) X 0.55" (H) X 5.2" (D) and weighing a mere 8.46 ounces, also has the ability to be powered directly via USB (no AC adaptor needed).

The BDR-XD05TB is bundled with CyberLink Media Suite 10, which includes PowerDVD™ 10, PowerDirector® 10, and Power2Go® 7.  PowerDVD 10 delivers award winning playback software and will even upscale standard-definition content to high-definition quality.  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, and since the drive is portable and USB bus powered, all of this can be done virtually anywhere. 

The BDR-XD05TB can write up to 6x2 on BD-R and BD-R dual-layer (DL) media. One BD-R DL disc can hold the same amount of data as 10 DVDs (single-layer).  The drive can write up to 4x on BD-R triple-layer (TL) and quad-layer (QL) media.  One QL disc can hold the same amount of data as 27 DVDs (single-layer).  The drive is also backward compatible to read and write to most DVD and CD recordable media.  Click on the "Specifications" tab to see all supported media formats and the read and write/burn speeds achievable for each format.   

The BDR-XD05TB also has unique features such as PowerRead™, Auto Quiet mode, and PureRead2 . 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), and PureRead automatically adjusts the drive parameters to minimize sound glitches during music playback.   Auto Quiet mode and PureRead can be configured as well as enabled and disabled with the Pioneer BDR-XD05TB Drive Utility.  The utility is available for download here.  

 
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™). 

Faster burning
6x2 writing on BD-R single-layer and dual-layer discs.  4x writing on BD-R triple-layer and quad layer discs. 

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.
