Battery replacement
If you find that the remote control transmitter must be
used closer to the main unit than usual, the batteries
are weak. Replace both batteries with new ones.

• Use only AAA batteries for replacement.
• Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration
inside the battery compartment.)
• Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter
will not be used for an extended period of time.

RECORDING
Before recording
MDs (Mini Disc) let you digitally record and play music
with high quality sound. Another feature of MDs is track
marking. The track marking feature lets you quickly
locate a specific point or easily edit the recorded
tracks. However, depending on the source you record
from, the recording method and the way the track
numbers are recorded differs.
Notes on digital recording
• When recording from a digital source (such as CD,
DAT, etc.), the unit converts the digital signals to
44.1 kHz for recording onto the MD.
The unit can record 32, 44.1, and 48 kHz digital
signals.
• When recording from an analog source (such as
cassette tape, tuner, etc.), the unit converts the
analog signals to a 44.1 kHz digital signal.
Notes about TOC
• On an MD, the track number (track sequence), playback
times, title data, etc., are recorded in the TOC area
independent of the sound information. You can edit
recorded tracks quickly by modifying the TOC information.
• Recording on an MD is completed when the TOC writing is
finished. Normally, the TOC information is written
automatically, but you can set it manually by setting REC
END WRITING function to OFF (page 16). TOC writing
starts when you do any of the following operations.
– Eject the MD.
– Press STANDBY/ON.
– In this case, if you pull out the AC power cord before TOC
writing is finished, the recorded contents will not be
memorized on the MD.
• TOC writing may be impossible (or Auto track number
marking may not perform as expected) when recording a
damaged CD or a broadcast source under interference.
Recording on an MD
When the source you record from is:
POWER RANDOM REPEAT
• CRX-M5’s CD player

RECORDING
Auto track marking
When making a recording, you can choose either
automatic or manual track marking. This feature
operates somewhat differently for analog and digital
signals. See below for details.
CD synchronized recording
You can easily record a CD on a MD when you
connect the unit to the CRX-M5.
This function is operated from the CRX-M5. For more
details, see the instructions of the CRX-M5.
Press AUTO/MANUAL repeatedly to select automatic
track marking (“MANUAL” disappears from the display)
or manual track marking (“MANUAL” appears in the
display).
1
Insert the desired disc into the CRX-M5.
2
Insert an MD.
When recording analog signals
3
Press DISC 1 – 3 to select the desired CD, then
press 7 after playing for several seconds.
4
Press CD SYNC when both units are in stop mode
and press 4/¢ repeatedly so that “CD → MD”
appears in the display.
5
Press CD SYNC .
The CRX-M5 starts CD play from the beginning of
a disc and the unit starts recording automatically.
6
Both units stop automatically when recording is
finished.
Auto: Track numbers are written in synchronization
with the input level of the signal being recorded. In
other words, if the source signal falls below a certain
level for more than 2 seconds, a track number is written
automatically the next time the source signal rises
above that level. You can change the level and time
settings (see page 16).
Manual: One track number is written automatically
when you start recording, but none are written during
recording. To write track number manually, press EDIT
at the desired point during recording.
When recording digital signals
Track numbers are written in the same positions as the
original source (CD, etc.) with automatic track marking.
When you set the unit to manual track marking, press
EDIT at the desired point to write track number during
recording.
To stop CD synchronized recording
Note
• You can record a CD on an MD with CD synchronized
recording by using various way as follows:
– recording from the desired track of a CD
– recording programmed track
• When the MD becomes full in the middle of the recording,
both units stop.
• Adjusting the VOLUME control of the CRX-M5 has no effect
on the recorded sound.
Press 7 (CRX-M5) or 7 (MDX-M5).
When you press 7 (MDX-M5) and the REC END
WRITING function set to ON, the CRX-M5 stops about
10 seconds after you press the button.
Notes
• When recording is paused, the portion recorded up to the
pause is counted as an individual track. When recording is
resumed, a new track number is created. On the other hand,
if one track is recorded in continuous repetition, that track is
recorded as one continuous track with a single track
number.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
MD system limitations
The recording system in your MD recorder is radically
different from those used in cassette and DAT decks
and is characterized by the limitations described below.
Note, however, that these limitations are inherent to the
MD recording system and are not a result of
mechanical trouble.
“DISC FULL” appears in the display before the
maximum recording time (60 or 74 minutes)
has been reached
Once 255 tracks have been recorded on one MD,
“DISC FULL” appears in the display regardless of the
total recorded time. More than 255 tracks cannot be
recorded on one MD. To continue recording, erase
unnecessary tracks, combine tracks to reduce the total
number of tracks, or use another recordable MD.
“DISC FULL” appears in the display before the
maximum number of tracks (255) have been
recorded
During Automatic track marking, fluctuations in
emphasis within songs may be interpreted as song
intervals, increasing the song count and causing “DISC
FULL” to be displayed.
The remaining recording time does not
increase even after erasing numerous short
tracks
Tracks under 12 seconds in length are not counted, so
erasing them may not lead to an increase in the
recording time.
“READING” appears in the display continuously
“READING” lasts longer than normal when a brand new
(blank) disc is inserted.
The total recorded time and the remaining
time on the MD does not equal the maximum
recording time
• Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds
each, no matter how short the material. The contents
recorded may thus be shorter than the maximum
recording capacity. Disc space may also be further
reduced by scratches.
• The unit displays the length of the largest continuous
blank area as the remaining time. If there are several
separate blank spaces, the remaining time will only
display a time equivalent to the largest continuous
blank space.
For example, if there is a 1 minute blank space and a
2 minute blank space, the remaining time display will
be “2” minutes. If you then record 1 minute and 30
seconds of the 2 minutes blank, the remaining time
display will become “1” minute.
Tracks created by editing may exhibit sound
dropout during search operations.
Track numbers are not recorded correctly
Incorrect assignment or recording of track numbers
may result when CD tracks are divided into several
smaller tracks during digital recording.
Limitations when recording over an existing
track
• The correct remaining recording time may not be
displayed.
• You may find it impossible to record over a track if
that track has been recorded over several times
already. In this case, erase the track using the Erase
function.
• The remaining recording time may be shortened out
of proportion to the total recorded time.
• Recording over a track to eliminate noise is not
recommended since this may shorten the duration of
the track.
• You may find it impossible to label a track while
recording over it.
The correct recorded/playing time may not be
displayed during playback of monaural-format MDs.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
As a digital audio component, the unit conforms with
the Serial Copy Manager System (SCMS) standards.
The Serial Copy Manager System restricts copies
made by recording digital signals to first-generation
copies only. Therefore, an MD recorded through a
digital input cannot be used as a source for making
another digital recording.
However, subsequent recordings can be made from the
first-generation copy by using the analog input/output
jacks.
There are three general rules that apply to the unit.
Notes about handling MDs
Protecting a recorded MD
• To protect a recorded MD, slide the tab on the side of
the MD to open the slot.
In this position, the MD cannot be used for recording.
To record on the MD, slide the tab to close the slot.
Tab
Rule 1
You can record from digital program sources (CDs,
DATs, or pre-mastered MDs) onto a DAT tape or
recordable MD via the digital input jack on a DAT or MD
recorder. You cannot, however, record from the
recorded DAT tape or MD to another DAT tape or
recordable MD via a digital input jack.
Rule 2
You can record a digital signal input from a digital
satellite broadcast onto a DAT tape or recordable MD
via the digital input jack on the DAT or MD recorder.
(The unit is equipped with a sampling rate converter
that allows you to make digital recordings from 32 kHz,
44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz digital program sources.)
If the broadcast does not contain a copyright protection
code, you can then record the contents of this recorded
DAT tape or MD (first-generation) onto another DAT
tape or recordable MD via a digital input jack on the
DAT or MD recorder to create a second generation
digital copy (these copies may also be copied digitally).
Note, however, that if the broadcast contains a copy
protection code, second-generation digital copying will
not be possible.
Slide open
the tab
• If the MD is protected against erasure,
“PROTECTED” appears in the display and the MD
cannot be used for recording. Slide the tab to close
the slot.
Care of MDs
• Do not expose the MD to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as there can be a
considerable rise in temperature inside the car.
• Periodically remove dust and debris from the
cartridge surface by wiping it with a dry cloth.
• Because the MD itself is housed in a cartridge, you
can handle it normally without being concerned about
dirt or fingerprints. However, malfunctioning may
result if the cartridge itself is dirty or warped.
• Do not open the shutter to expose the MD. Close the
shutter immediately if the shutter opens.
Rule 3
You can record a DAT tape or MD recorded via the
DAT or MD recorder’s analog input jack onto another
DAT tape or MD via the DAT or MD recorder’s digital
output jack. You cannot, however, make a secondgeneration DAT tape or MD copy via the DAT or MD
recorder’s digital output jack.
