ummm.... this device is not a dvd burner, dvd reader, or cd burner combo. It's a Dual-Tuner/HD DVD Recorder and has nothing to do with cd or dvd disks or cd/dvd drives and is normally distributed by cable operators to their customers. I cannot see how it could possibly need or require a driver.

Perhaps if you told us what your trying to accomplish, we might have a solution.


On the back side you have 3 connectors:

HDMI port:
Connect the HDTV HDMI connector to the HDMI port. HDMI supports both digital audio and video.
May be used to connect to a DVI interface using an adaptor.

SATA port:
Connect to an external Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive for expanded recording capacity.
Check with your cable service provider for a list of approved hard drive models for use with the 8300HD.

1394 Firewire port:
Connect to display devices equipped with a 1394 input. This connector is
reserved for future use and may not be available on all 8300HD models.


On the front panel there is only one USB port connector.
It connects to external equipment, such as a keyboard.
This connector is reserved for future use and may not be available on all 8300HD models.

Question Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Scientific-Atlanta Explorer 8300HD (Windows Vista) [Firewire / 1394]

Originally, I wanted to expand the Hard Drive space on my 8300 HD Scientific Atlanta DVR (DVR received from Cable Company - TW) thru the external SATA, 1394 or USB ports on the SA DVR 8300HD . Scientific-Atlanta website states this can be done using an external SATA hard drive. List of approved (by cable provider) external hard drives on time-warner website.

However, I am trying to expand the hard drive space of the 8300HD using my PCs hard drive and the eSATA port I have connected to my PC.

When I connect my Scientific-Atlanta 8300HD DVR to my PC (both devices powered on) my PC wants to install the driver software provided by Scientific-Atlanta and asks for the disc provided with the Hardware device. No disc was provided when 8300HD was provided to me by my cable provider. PC tried to search internet for device drivers, but was unsuccessful.

I would like to get the Scientific-Atlanta Inc. Explorer (R) 8300HD AV/C Tuner drivers to take full advantage of the Scientific-Atlanta Inc. Explorer (R) 8300HD AV/C Tuner provided by Time-Warner.

Moved thread out of the CD/DVD Drive forum to the "Other Devices" forum.

I don't see any hopes of a driver being released until such a time as SA thinks one needs to be released!
