Partial CAV (Constant Angular Velocity)
The CLV (Constant Linear Velocity) method is generally used to write data on a CD-R
disc. In writing using the CLV method, the disc rotation speed is adjusted to keep the data
writing speed (data transfer rate) constant on all parts of the disc.
In contrast, the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) method exercises control so as to keep
the disc rotation speed constant. Since the CAV method makes it possible to substantially
increase the maximum data transfer rate without straining of the drive, it is adopted today
for most CD-ROM drives.
CD formats define the constant linear density of written data so that the amount of written
data per disc rotation will increase as the writing point moves from the inner track to the
outer track.
With the CAV method, therefore, data is transferred at a higher rate when it is written on
the outer tracks of the disc. To achieve 24X-speed writing, the CRW3200SX drive
employs the Partial CAV method, which is a combination of the CAV method for inner
tracks and the CLV method for outer tracks.
The Partial CAV method controls the disc rotation speed so that the CRW3200SX drive
starts writing at 18X speed on inner tracks, increasing the speed to 24X as the read/write
head moves outward and holds the speed at 24X on outer tracks.
Tip
The CRW3200SX drive supports 8 cm discs.
Note
Use only circular discs. Do not use any irregular shaped discs such as heart-shaped or
star-shaped discs to avoid the risk of malfunction.
System Requirements
The CRW3200SX drive is designed to operate in the following computer
environment. If your computer does not meet these requirements, the CRW3200SX
drive may not operate or write at the maximum speed.

Precautions on Use
• Hard drive space
Writing data on a CD-R/RW disc requires 50 MB to 100 MB of free space as a
working area on the hard drive. When writing data on a CD-R/RW disc after
creating an image file, there must be enough free space on the hard drive to store
the image file in addition to the working area (a total of up to 900 MB).
However, hard drive space for image files is not required when directly writing
onto a CD-R/RW disc from a hard drive or CD-ROM using the CRW3200SX
drive (on-the-fly writing).
Image file
You can collect the data files to be written on a CD-R/RW disc into a single image file.
The image file is useful for writing the same data onto multiple discs. For details, refer
to the documentation that comes with the CD writing software.
• A spare PCI expansion slot for a SCSI card (if one hasn’t been installed or builtin)
• SCSI card
SCSI is a standard to connect a computer and peripheral devices.

Technical Notes
Buffer Underrun Protection Function
CD-R/RW drives are equipped with a buffer memory, which temporarily stores data
that is being transferred. When the buffer memory becomes empty due to a delay of
data transfer for any reason, a writing error happens. Such condition is defined as
buffer underrun, and such an error is defined as a buffer underrun error.
Buffer Underrun Protection is featured in the CRW3200SX drive.
When buffer underrun almost happens, Buffer Underrun Protection temporarily
suspends the writing process. Writing resumes when enough data has accumulated
in the buffer memory. Buffer Underrun Protection in the CRW3200SX drive is
extremely accurate, resulting in seamless recording before and after suspension.
Test writing
Test writing is a function to check for the possible occurrence of buffer underrun in your
computer environment. When Buffer Underrun Protection of the CD writing software is
activated, the test writing function cannot be operated. Buffer Underrun Protection
should be deactivated to operate the test writing function.
Writing Methods
Disc-at-Once (DAO)
This method is used to write all data onto a disc in one operation. It writes multiple
pieces of data without placing a space between data, starting with the innermost
track of the disc. Once data is written by this method, no data can be added to the
same disc even if there is free space available on the disc. This method is useful for
making a backup copy of an entire disc.
Track-at-Once (TAO)
This method is used to write data on a disc on a track-by-track basis. A track can be
defined as the smallest unit of area that contains an ordinary program, image file,
text file, etc. This method enables you to add data to the same disc, one track of data
at a time, as long as there is free space available on the disc. A disc that contains data
written in several sessions is defined as a multi-session disc. An area that records
data and management information (Lead-in/Lead-out) is defined as a session. Leadin and Lead-out are signals written for stating the starting and ending points of one
session.
Note
Ordinary audio CD players can only play back single-session discs or the first session on
a multi-session disc. Do not record audio data on the second and subsequent sessions.

Technical Notes
Session-at-Once (SAO)
This method is used to write data on a disc on a session-by-session basis. Unlike
Track-at-Once described above, Session-at-Once enables you to record multiple
tracks onto a disc at a time. CD EXTRA, for example, uses this method to write
multiple pieces of audio data (or multiple tracks) in the first session and information
required for computers in the second session. This method enables you to add data
into the same disc, one session at a time, as long as there is free space available on
the disc. A disc that contains data written in several sessions by this method is
defined as a multi-session disc, like a disc written by the Track-at-Once method.
Packet Writing
This method is used to record data onto a disc on a file-by-file basis. This method
divides a track into small segments called “packets” so that data can be written on a
packet-by-packet basis, which means that you can write data in much the same way
as you copy data to a floppy or hard drive. Since the data can be written easily,
packet writing is proper to daily data backup. Packet writing also enables you to add
packets to a disc as long as there is free space available on the disc.
Note
• Discs need to be formatted for packet writing prior to use.
• Formatting a CD-RW disc using packet writing software reduces its storage capacity
by about 100 MB since packet writing requires exclusive space for itself.
• For CD-R discs, deleting data means masking data but not actually removing data.
Therefore, actual free space in a CD-R never be increased even if data is deleted.
Audio Master Quality Recording (High quality audio writing mode)
This method enables you to record high quality data that can be played back with the
1.4 m/s linear velocity.
Note
• Audio Master Quality Recording (High quality audio writing mode) is enabled with
the 4X speed Disc-at-Once writing method.
• Maximum recording time is 63 minutes for a 650 MB CD-R disc and 68 minutes for a
700 MB CD-R disc.
CD-MRW (CD Mount Rainier ReWriting)
This method is a new standard of packet writing for a CD-RW disc and supports
defect control by the drive, background formatting, and disc ejecting during
formatting. It enables you to use a CD-RW disc like a floppy disk.
Note
Formatting a CD-RW disc using CD-MRW reduces its storage capacity by about 150 MB
since CD-MRW itself requires exclusive disc space.
