About DVD+R and DVD+RW disc
English
How are DVD+R and DVD+RW discs different?
The essential difference between DVD+R and DVD+RW
is that DVD+R is a record-once medium, while
DVD+RW is a re-recordable/erasable medium. You can
re-record/ erase a DVD+RW disc approximately 1,000
times.
DVD+RW mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP)
• Playable on regular DVD players
• The edited contents is playable on regular DVD players only after finalizing
• Recordings can be edited the title/chapter
DVD+R mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Any edited contents are not be compatible on regular
DVD players. (Hide, chapter combine, added chapter
mark, etc.)
• Limited title/chapter editing features
DVD +R (Double Layer)
Double layer recording technology offers two recordable
layers on a single DVD disc, providing nearly double the
capacity of 4.7GB single layer DVDs. The greatest,
most valuable benefit of double layer recording technology is increased capacity. Storage space is nearly doubled with double layer DVD+R media, allowing consumers to burn up to 8.5GB of video on a single
DVD+R disc.

Overview (Continued)
otes
• This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or
CD-RW discs.
• Our company takes no responsibility for recording failure due to power cuts, defective discs, or damage to
the recorder.
• Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can affect
playback and/or recording performance. Please take
proper care of your discs.
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play five different kinds of DVD disc:
pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW, DVD-R,
DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format for DVD-R
discs is always “Video format”—the same as pre-recorded DVD-Video discs. This means that once finalized,
you can play a DVD-R in a regular DVD player.
• The recording times shown are not exact because the
recorder uses variable bit-rate video compression.
This means that the exact recording time will depend
on the material being recorded.
• When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception is
poor or the picture contains interference, the recording times may be shorter.
• If you record still pictures or audio only, the recording
time may be longer.
• The displayed times for recording and time remaining
may not always add up to exactly the length of the
disc.
• The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
• The overwrite recording is available with DVD+RW
disc.

Overview (Continued)
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packaged at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray,
near the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long period of time. They will
leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface
of the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The Recorder is a high-tech, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or
worn, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your nearest dealer.
Notes on Discs
Handling discs
Do not touch the playback side of the disc. Hold the
disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not get on the
surface. Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
Storing discs
After playing, store the disc in its case.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of
heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature
increase inside the car.
Cleaning discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean
the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center outward.
Yes
No
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine,

Sampling Frequency
Each DVD disc has a variety of audio output options.
Set the recorder’s Audio Output according to the type of
audio system you use.
If your receiver or amplifier is NOT capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select 48 kHz. When this choice is
made, this unit will automatically convert any 96 kHz
signals to 48 kHz so your system can decode them.
If your receiver or amplifier is capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select 96 kHz. When this choice is
made, this unit will pass each type of signal through
without any further processing.
Dolby Digital
PCM: Select when connected to a 2-channel digital stereo
amplifier. The Recorder’s digital audio outputs sounds in
the PCM 2ch format when you play a DVD video disc
recorded on the Dolby Digital recording system.

Recorder’s DIGITAL OUT jack to a Dolby Digital
decoder (or an amplifier or other equipment with a
Dolby Digital decoder).

With the DVD format, you can hear a program’s soundtrack in the most accurate and realistic presentation
possible, thanks to digital audio technology. However,
you may wish to compress the dynamic range of the
audio output (the difference between the loudest sounds
and the quietest ones). Then, you may listen to a movie

Notes on MP3/Windows MediaTM Audio
Recordings
About MP3
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The recorder can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
About Windows MediaTM Audio
An Windows MediaTM Audio file is a Microsoft audio
compression technology.
Windows MediaTM Audio offers double the audio.compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/Windows MediaTM Audio Disc compatibility
with this recorder is limited as follows:
1. CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660” and
“JOLIET”.
2. If you record MP3/Windows MediaTM Audio files
using the software which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example “Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to
playback MP3 files. We recommend that you use
“Easy-CD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 or
JOLIET file system.
3. Total number of files and folders on the disc should
be less than 999.
This Recorder requires discs/recordings to meet certain
technical standards in order to achieve optimal playback
quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to
these standards. There are many different types of
recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing MP3
or Windows MediaTM Audio files) that require certain preexisting conditions (see above) to insure compatible
playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/Windows
MediaTM Audio files and music from the Internet. Our
company has no right to grant such permission.
Permission should always be sought from the copyright owner.

Depending on the size and number of JPEG files, it

Timer Recording Troubleshooting
Even though the timer is set, the recorder will not
record when:
• There is no disc (or tape) loaded.
• A non-recordable disc (or tape) is loaded.
• Disc Protect is set to ON in the Setup menu
(see page 30).
• Power is turned on. (Please ensure that the set is in
Standby mode for Timer recording to activate.)
• There are already 49 titles recorded on the disc.
You cannot enter a timer program when:
• A recording is already underway.
• The time you’re trying to set has already passed.
• There are already 8 timer programs set.
If two or more timer programs overlap:
• The earlier program takes priority.
• When the earlier program finishes, the later program
starts.
• If two programs are set to start at exactly the same
time, the program entered first takes priority.
If the disc is damaged, the recording may not complete
successfully. In this case even though the Check field
shows “Rec. OK”, it may not be.

This system makes programming timer recordings very
simple. Most TV guides publish SHOWVIEW programming
numbers with their program details.If you want to make
a timer recording of a program, you just input the corresponding SHOWVIEW programming number. The date,
start, stop and channel settings are made automatically.
All you have to do is tell the recorder the recording
mode and quality, and whether it’s a once-only recording, or a regular recording.
Up to 8 timer programs can be stored in the recorder.
