DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as
movies). The motion picture industry has divided the world into different regions that
correspond to the regional markets into which the motion picture industry releases movies.
Movies worldwide have RPC codes, based on the region of the world in which they are
being sold. These RPC codes help to control and prevent pirating of new movies into other
motion picture regions before their release within those markets.
This drive supports RPC phase II. In the RPC-2 mode, users can change the local code.
RPC-2 is selected by default for this drive.

Note
1)
The time to recognize the device may differ depending on the number of fles and
the capacity of the media device.
Supported media types
CD/DVD types of media written in UDF or ISO are supported. (except for DVD-RAM)
The ISO and UDF formats
To understand the ISO and UDF formats, you have to understand the concept of fle
systems on storage devices.
Since ODDs only support the ISO and UDF fle systems, the data needs to be converted
to a fle system that the AV system can recognize for the data on the ODD to be used.
Note
AV System: Supports the FAT32 fle system.
File System: When an HDD, DVD/CD media or fash memory device is
connected to a computer, Windows Explorer shows the fle name, the size and
the creation date for the fles saved on the storage device, by using the
information saved on the fle system. In addition, the fle system stores the
locations of the data that make up the fles on the media.
ISO: This fle system is the most widely used fle system for ODDs. This fle
system is used when users save data onto a media in the ODD by using a disc
burning program such as NERO or ROXIO.
UDF: This is a fle system for ODD media that enables reading and writing data
onto the media such as when using an HDD or USB memory device.
For your reference, you can format a RW media in the UDF fle system by rightclicking over the media in Windows Explorer in Windows VISTA or later.
Frequently asked questions
Is there a limit to the number or size of the fles?
Up to 3000 fles are supported and the fles from root directory up to 5 levels can be
recognized. The maximum size of a fle is just under 4 GB. There is no limit to the size of
data saved onto a single disc.
file:///D|/0...05_SST/00_PROJECT/2012/SST12-022_SE-208DB_CD-Manual_19Langs_���_21May/06_2nd_Delivery_EN/en/Use_AV.html[07/06/2012 18:30:24]
SE-208DB : How to use - How to use AV Connectivity function
In AV system support mode, it takes longer to recognize a disc.
It takes longer to recognize the discs as data on the ISO/UDF fle system is converted to
the FAT32 fle system for AV systems to recognize and transmit the data.
In addition, the time delay due to the conversion is determined by the number and size of
the fles saved on the disc. (Approximately 30 seconds is required for 1 GB of data.)
I have connected the ODD but there is no response.
Because the fle system conversion takes longer, if you connect a high-capacity disc, the
connected device (such as TV) will require some time to recognize the Samsung externaltype ODD (1G = approximately 30 seconds).
Note
When recognizing the ODD, the LED of the ODD blinks continuously.
I know my TV supports playing images but I cannot display my images on the TV.
The resolution of the images may not be supported by the TV or the codec (JPG, GIF,
BMP, and etc.) may not be supported by the TV. In addition, if the actual image is in a
format other than JPG such as in the BMP format, the image will not be displayed even
though the image fle extension is “JPG”.
Does the AV connectivity function allow me to connect to a device such as a TV that
only has video, photo and music playing functions?
The AV connectivity function basically enables connecting an AV device to any device to
which a USB memory device can be connected. However, the AV connectivity device may
be unable to connect to a device due to a power or compatibility problem.
PLEASE NOTE When writing to a device (such as a USB memory device or external HDD
that is connected through the USB interface) is required for some reason, the AV
connectivity function does not work.
Note
Since some AV systems have a timeout scheme for recognizing USB devices, if
recognizing a device is delayed, the process may time out and the device may not
be recognized. This may occur when the disc contains a big fle or a number of
fles.
My TV works as a Personal Video Recorder when an external-type HDD is
connected. Can I record data by connecting an external-type ODD to the TV?
Since, at present, the AV connectivity function supports reading data only, you cannot
write data to the AV connectivity device.
I cannot play a video fle on my TV.
First check if the connected TV supports playing video through a USB interface.
If the TV supports this function, check if the video format is supported by the TV.
The AV connectivity technology is only for recognizing the connected portable ODD, not

SE-208DB : How to use - How to use AV Connectivity function
for automatically detecting the fle format and playing the fles on the ODD. The function for
detecting and playing fles needs to be supported by the TV or digital frame.
For supported video, photo and music fle formats, refer to the user manual of the device
to be connected (e.g. the TV manual).
Can I watch commercial DVD titles on the TV by using the AV connectivity function?
To play DVD titles, you need a recorder that can decrypt the encoded DVD title. However,
since most TVs do not support this function, you cannot watch DVD titles by using the AV
connectivity function. To watch DVD titles, you have to use a DVD player or DVD playing
software that runs on a computer.

4. It is recommended that you use the image fle format when you write a large number of
small-sized fles.
When there are many small fles to write, the transfer rate decreases and the Buffer
under run protection feature works at a more frequent rate. This causes a lower writing
quality.
If you are doing a CD-to-CD copy, it is not necessary to verify if you have available
space on your hard disc.
However, in the case of image fles, we recommend that you make sure you to have at
least two times the amount of space needed for the data on your hard disc. This is
because image fles are copied to the hard disc before they are copied to the media.
5. Do not use more than one type of writing software.
Before you install a writing program, make sure to frst uninstall existing versions of the
program or other writing programs. After you uninstall any software, restart the PC.
(The Windows operating system can be damaged if you install different language
versions)
Note
We recommend that you use the data recording software provided by Samsung.
If you use other recording software, this can cause an error.

SE-208DB : Troubleshooting - Caution: possible errors
The write speed for a disc can be restricted if:
1. The disc has bad properties, or there are other discs with bad properties under
the same ID.
The drive examines the disc properties to determine the best write conditions for the
type of disc. Because the two types of disc have the same property data but different
properties, it is often not possible to use the same settings. It is necessary to decrease
the writing speed to make the writing more stable.
If discs from two different disc makers have the same writing speed according to the
labels, but actually have different writing speeds, it is necessary to reduce the writing
speed.
2. Samsung standards to decrease writing speed
Standard 1: If there are high-speed discs in the market that have very bad property
data, the writing speed is decreased. This also happens if there are low-speed discs
with the same ID.
Standard 2: Discs for which the speed was reduced, will be examined again. If lowspeed discs are no longer available in the market under the same ID as a highspeed disc, the decreased writing speed will no longer apply to the high-speed disc.
Note
It is possible that you do not get good writing quality with discs from manufacturers
that are not registered in the drive's frmware.
We thus recommend that you only use discs from recommended companies.
Always make sure that the writing was successful before you put the disc in
storage. This is very important when you want to store important data.
(Samsung is not responsible for any loss caused by a backup failure)
Note
We update the list of supported media on a regular basis and make them available
in our frmware upgrades.
