Format the disc to start recording
Using a DVD-RAM
This type of disc can be formatted in either DVD-Video format (Video mode) or DVD-Video Recording format (VR
mode). For an unused disc, a message that asks whether to
format in VR Mode or not is displayed. You can play a video
mode disc on various DVD components. A VR mode disc
allows more varied editing.
Using a DVD-R
This type of disc can be formatted in DVD Video format.
After formatting is complete, you can record on the disc. You
can play this type of disc on various DVD components only
when they have been finalised.
Note
You can only use one format on a DVD-RW.
You can change the DVD-RW format to another format. It should be noted that the data of
the disc may be lost when changing formats.
Step 3
Recording
Finalising & Playing on
other DVD components
To play your DVD on other DVD components, finalsing
may be necessary. First, finish all editing and recording
operations, then finalise the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in VR Mode
Although finalising is generally unnecessary when playing
the disc on a VR Mode compatible component, a
finalised disc should be used for playback on that type of
component.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video Mode
Step 4
Playing
You can select the title you want to play in a displayed
menu and then immediately start playback.
A DVD consists of sections, called titles, and sub sections, called chapters.
During recording, a title is created between two points
where you start and stop recording, DVD-RW/DVD-R
discs(in Video mode) can automatically create chapters according to the recording mode when finalised.
Step 5
The disc should be finalised first to enable playback on
anything other than this recorder. No more editing or
recording can be made on the disc once it has been
finalised.
To enable recording on the disc again, Disc should be
unfinalised.
When using a DVD-R disc
You should finalise the disc to play it on a component
other than this recorder. You cannot edit or record on the
disc once it has been finalised.
Editing a recorded disc
Editing on discs is easier than conventional video tapes.
The recorder supports many different edit functions, possible only with DVDs.
With a simple and easy edit menu, you can operate various edit functions, such as delete, copy, rename, lock,
etc., on a recorded title.
Creating a playlist (DVD-RAM/DVD-RW in VR
mode)
With this recorder, you can create a new playlist on the
same disc and edit it without the change of the original
recording.
