Introduction
Features of the CRW8824IX Drive
Easy setup
Implementation of an IEEE1394 interface (also known as FireWire or i.LINK)
eliminates the need for drive configurations (device ID, termination, and so on).
You can connect and start using the drive whenever you wish without restarting
your computer.
High speed
CD-R/RW discs can be written/rewritten at up to 8X speed. For example, an
audio CD (74 minutes/650MB) can be created in approximately 10 minutes. Data
reading at up to 24X speed is supported.
CD TEXT support
CD TEXT is a capability that adds text data to an audio CD. Information such as
the song name or artist name can be recorded using writing software. The text
data on the disc you create can be displayed by a CD player that is compatible
with CD TEXT.
Wide compatibility
To ensure compatibility with a wide range of discs, technical data has been
exchanged with major disc manufacturers. 700MB discs are also supported.
High-fidelity audio
Writing software can be used to extract digital audio data at up to 24X speed.
(This data can be saved in WAVE format in a Windows environment, or in AIFF
format in a Macintosh environment.) Digital sound can be recorded with
complete fidelity even when writing at 8X speed.
Reliable writing
Yamaha’s proprietary Pure-Phase Laser System*1 improves jitter values*2 to allow
the signal to be recorded accurately. In addition, the 4MB buffer memory and
Running OPC*3 technology further enhance reliability.
*1. Pure-Phase Laser System (patent applied for)
Technology that reduces phase interference of the laser beam, so that it shines accurately on the disc.
*2. Jitter value
An important measure of recording quality. This has been improved 25% compared with Yamaha models
not using this technology.
*3. Running OPC
CD-R/RW discs vary by manufacturer in their recording characteristics, and the laser output required to
write data differs by disc. Running OPC is technology that solves this problem by automatically adjusting
the output of the laser according to the material of the disc on which data is being written.

Introduction
About IEEE1394
IEEE1394 is an industry standard approved by IEEE (Institute of Electrical
and Electronics Engineers). The serial interface has a broad bandwidth and
is fast enough to bidirectionally transfer large amounts of digital video and
audio data between electronic devices including computer peripherals. Also
known as FireWire and i.LINK, the IEEE1394 interface allows units to
transfer data or various controls over a single IEEE1394 interface cable.
Unlike legacy serial interfaces such as RS-232C, IEEE1394 allows a daisychaining (serial connection) of devices and any two devices in the chain can
transfer data to each other. IEEE1394 also supports a tree (parallel)
connection of devices. In addition to this flexibility, IEEE1394 also
eliminates the need for complicated settings as found in SCSI (Small
Computer System Interface), such as device ID and termination. As of
writing, IEEE1394 supports three different data transfer rates: 100Mbps,
200Mbps, and 400Mbps.

CPU: Pentium II, 300MHz or faster.
RAM: 64MB or more.
IEEE1394 port: At least one IEEE1394 port is required.
n This port may be a built-in (onboard) type, or provided with a PCI expansion card
or a CardBus card. If you newly install an IEEE1394 PCI or CardBus interface card,
your computer should have an empty PCI expansion slot or a CardBus slot. For
more information about the IEEE1394 interface card, refer to “IEEE1394 Interface
Card (PCI or CardBus)” shown below.
● Operating System (OS)
Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000
● CD Writing Software
The CRW8824IX drive requires CD writing software to write onto a CD-R/RW
disc. When you use the CD writing software, make sure that it supports the
CRW8824IX drive.
n For details about how to install and use the software, refer to the documentation
that came with it.
● CD-ROM Drive
You may need another CD-ROM drive for any CD-related operations
(playback of an audio CD, installation from CD-ROM, and so on) until you
verify that the CRW8824IX is successfully installed. Also you may need
another CD-ROM drive if you are planning to copy a CD-ROM directly to a
CD-R/RW disc on the CRW8824IX drive.
n The CRW8824IX cannot boot your computer with a CD-ROM containing the
operating system, so that the unit cannot be used for installation of the operating
system.
● IEEE1394 Interface Card (PCI or CardBus)
For the CRW8824IX to work properly with your computer, your IEEE1394
interface card must be OHCI compliant. As of writing, Yamaha has verified
compatibility with following cards:

Before Use
n For latest information about approved IEEE1394 interface cards, check YAMAHA
CD-R/RW Drive web site at http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/computer/.
n Some IEEE1394 interface cards may not work properly with your computer. If you
newly purchase and install the interface card, make sure of the compatibility not
only with your computer, but also with the CRW8824IX drive.
n If you already have an IEEE1394 interface card installed and working properly on
your computer, there might be cases of incompatibility with your new CRW8824IX
drive. In such cases, make sure that your computer system meets above
requirements, and also the interface card is compatible with the CRW8824IX drive.
Macintosh Users
● Computer
Macintosh computers with a built-in FireWire port
CPU: PowerPC G3, 300MHz or faster.
RAM: 64MB or more.
● Operating System
Mac OS 8.6, 9 or later.
n FireWire software version 2.2.2 or later is recommended for the CRW8824IX to
work properly. The latest software is available from Apple support web site.
● CD Writing Software
The CRW8824IX drive requires CD writing software to write to a CD-R/RW
disc. When you use the CD writing software, make sure that it supports the
CRW8824IX drive.
n For details about how to install and use the software, refer to the documentation
that came with it.
● CD-ROM Drive
You may need another CD-ROM drive for any CD-related operations
(playback of an audio CD, installation from CD-ROM, and so on) until you
verify that the CRW8824IX is successfully installed. Also you may need
another CD-ROM drive if you are planning to copy a CD-ROM directly to a
CD-R/RW disc on the CRW8824IX drive.
n The CRW8824IX cannot boot your computer with a CD-ROM containing the
operating system, so that the unit cannot be used for installation of the operating
system.
Hard Drive Space (Windows and Macintosh Users)
When writing to a CD-R/RW disc, you will need a working area (50 to 100MB
free space) on the hard drive. When creating an image file for all data to write to
a CD-R/RW disc, in addition to the working area, you will need as much hard
drive space as that data (up to 800MB in total). However, such hard drive space
for the image file is not needed when you are directly writing from a hard drive,
CD-ROM drive or so on (on-the-fly writing). In any case of writing to a CD-R/
RW disc, you will need a 50 to 100MB working area on your hard drive.
n Data is written to a disc much more reliably when writing from an image file,
eliminating the likelihood of errors occurring. Furthermore, this solution is ideal when
making multiple copies of discs since the original data is backed up in your hard drive as
an image file.
4
Before Use
Supported Discs
The CRW8824IX can write to discs that carry the following logos.
CD-R discs*1
The CRW8824IX can write to these discs at 8X, 6X, 4X, and 1X speeds.
These discs can be played back in a CD-ROM drive or a CD player.
n When writing at 8X or 6X speeds, please use “high-speed writing
capable” discs.
CD-RW discs*2
There are two types of CD-RW discs: those that support write/rewrite
speeds of 4X, 2X and 1X, and those that support only 2X.
The CRW8824IX can write/rewrite at 4X and 2X speeds on the first type
of disc and at 2X on the second type of disk. These discs can be read/
played on a device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) that supports “CD-RW.”
High Speed CD-RW discs*3
These discs allow writing/rewriting at 4~10X speeds. The CRW8824IX
can write/rewrite these discs at 8X and 4X speeds. These discs can be
read/played by a CD-RW drive that bears the High Speed CD-RW logo,
or by a device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) that supports “CD-RW.”
• In order to write, erase, or read these discs using a CD-R/
RW drive, a drive bearing the High Speed CD-RW logo must
be used. When using a CD-ROM drive to read these discs,
the drive must be capable of reading CD-RW discs.
• If these discs are used in a CD-R/RW drive not bearing the
High Speed CD-RW logo, the discs may not be recognized,
resulting in the computer not operating correctly or other
malfunctions occurring.
• Refer to the page at the URL below before attempting to read
these discs on a Yamaha CD-R/RW drive not bearing the

Notes on Connecting IEEE1394 Devices
Remember the following notes when connecting the CRW8824IX drive to the
host computer along with other IEEE1394 devices.
● For optimum performance of writing a CD, connect the CRW8824IX directly
or solely to the host computer.
● Do not connect or disconnect any IEEE1394 devices while the CRW8824IX is
in operation (especially when writing to a disc).
● If there is a slower device connected between the host computer and
CRW8824IX drive, the data transfer between CRW8824IX drive and the host
computer will go slow, which may cause failure in writing a CD.
● The IEEE1394 ports on the CRW8824IX drive have 6-pin connectors, but do
not supply power (IEEE1394 bus power).
● If you are using the host computer that does not supply power to the
IEEE1394 bus, turning off the CRW8824IX drive on that bus may cause
“broken communication” between the host computer and the device directly
connected to the CRW8824IX and after. So, do keep all devices turned on
while using them in the chain to avoid such problems.
Connecting Multiple IEEE1394 Peripherals Together
Connecting in a daisy-chain
A single daisy-chain can contain up to
17 devices including the host computer.
CRW8824IX
A maximum single cable length: 4.5m
Connecting in a tree
CRW8824IX
An entire system can contain up to
63 devices including the host computer.

Setup Procedures
Restricted Connections
Avoid creating a looped connection that sends data output from a device back
to the same device. The illustration below shows an example of such a loop
(at the host computer).
No Good
Connecting and Disconnecting IEEE1394 Devices
Connecting Devices
Your IEEE1394 devices (including the CRW8824IX drive) are supposed to be
connected to an IEEE1394 chain or tree connection even while the host
computer is turned on (hot plug).
n For more information about a IEEE1394 chain or tree connection, refer to page 14.
Disconnecting Devices
When you attempt to disconnect an IEEE1394 device while the computer is
turned on:
● Computers running under Windows 98 Second Edition will freeze.
● Computers running under Windows 2000 allow for disconnection after you
complete the “unplugging” procedure properly.
● Macintosh computers may show an alert message and allow for disconnection
after you properly close the CD writing software and unmount the CD volume
from the desktop.
n For more information about disconnecting IEEE1394 devices while the computer is
turned on, refer to the documentation about your operating system.
15
Setup Procedures
Verifying the Hardware Installation
After connecting the CRW8824IX drive to the computer (or an IEEE daisy-chain
or tree), you can verify that the drive is correctly recognized from your computer.
Windows Users
Make sure that the CRW8824IX is recognized by the operating system.
From the Windows 98 Second Edition’s [Start] menu, select [Settings]-[Control
Panels] and open the [System] control panel. In the [System Properties] window,
select the [Device Manager] tab. If you can find a new CD drive icon (YAMAHA
CRW8824E), an IEEE1394 bus controller icon, and an SBP2 icon as shown below,
you have successfully installed both the drive and the IEEE1394 interface card as
Windows OS recognizes both devices.
This screen shot is from Windows 98 Second Edition.
n For more information about how to use the operating system, refer to the
documentation that came with it.
n If there is a
mark next to the icon for the CRW8824IX drive or the IEEE1394 bus
controller, this means that it has not been installed correctly. In either case, the
CRW8824IX drive may not work properly.
n For Windows 2000, double-click [System] in the [Control Panels], select the
[Hardware] tab, and click the [Device Manager] button in [System Properties].

Troubleshooting
You may encounter troubles while using the CRW8824IX drive. This section
gives symptoms and possible solutions or step-by-step procedures to walk
around. Also refer to the YAMAHA CD-R/RW Drives web sites for more
information.
Visit the YAMAHA CD-R/RW Drives web sites at:
http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/computer/
http://www.yamaha-yste.com/ (Europe)
The drive does not power up.
● Make sure that the drive is properly connected to a “live” AC outlet using the
supplied power cable. If necessary, reconnect the cable.
● Make sure that the front panel POWER switch is depressed. As long as the
ON/DISC LED lights up or blinks in green or orange, the drive is successfully
turned on. There may be no hardware trouble (P. 29). If you cannot see any
LED activity, consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for repair.
The computer does not start up.
● Is the IEEE1394 interface card installed correctly?
Refer to the documentation that came with the card for details.
The CRW8824IX drive is not recognized by the operating system.
● Is the drive properly connected to the computer using a known-good
IEEE1394 interface cable?
Make sure the interface cable is fully connected at both ends (P. 12, 13).
● Does the IEEE1394 interface (bus interface) appear in the operating system’s
information window?
Make sure that the IEEE1394 interface is recognized by the operating system
(P. 16, 17).
If not, refer to the documentation that came with the IEEE1394 interface card
or read the documentation that came with your computer for the built-in type
IEEE1394 interface. Consult the manufacturer of your (add-on or built-in)
IEEE1394 interface for possible solutions.
If the operating system recognizes the IEEE1394 interface, but the
CRW8824IX drive is not recognized, consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for
repair.
22
Troubleshooting
Pressing the Eject button does not open the disc tray.
● Is the CRW8824IX drive powered up?
If not, go to the previous symptom, “The drive does not power up” (P. 22).
● Are you using the CD writing software?
If so, your CD writing software may lock the tray once the disc is loaded. If
this is the case, try using the eject command from within the software. For
more information, refer to the documentation that came with it. First close
the software, and then try ejecting the disc.
● Can you open the tray after attempting to restart the computer?
Try this sequence: Close all application programs, restart the computer, and
press the Eject button on the drive’s front panel.
● Manually open the tray as a last resort (P. 21).
If this trouble occurs frequently, the drive’s spring-loaded mechanism may be
damaged. Consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for repair.
The disc keeps being ejected.
● Has the disc been placed on the disc tray correctly?
If not, place the disc properly and close the tray.
● Has dust or dirt collected on the disc surface?
If so, clean the disc surface using an air spray or by wiping using a lint-free
cloth. Remember to wipe the surface from the center of the disc to the edge.
Be careful not to scratch it.
● Does the drive accept other disc (audio CD, CD-ROM, blank CD-R disc and
so on)?
When the drive does not accept a specific disc, the disc has a problem such as
scratches on its surface, warping or other reasons. If the drive does not accept
any disc, consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for repair.
The disc is not loaded.
● Does the drive automatically open the tray to eject the disc?
If so, go to the previous symptom, “The disc keeps being ejected.”
● Are you attempting to load a disc supported by the drive?
Make sure that the disc is supported by the drive (P. 5).
● Has dust or dirt collected on the disc surface?
If so, clean the disc surface using an air spray or by wiping using a lint-free
cloth. Remember to wipe the surface from the center of the disc to the edge.
Be careful not to scratch it.
23
Troubleshooting
● Does the drive accept other disc (audio CD, CD-ROM, blank CD-R disc and
so on)?
When the drive does not accept a specific disc, the disc has a problem such as
scratches on its surface, warping or other reasons. The drive may also fail to
load even a supported disc if the disc is written improperly.
● Is the drive’s ON/DISC LED lit up correctly?
Normally when loading, the LED will blink in orange when the tray is closed,
then in green when the disc is being loaded, and then finally it will stay lit in
green after the disc has been successfully loaded (P. 29).
If the LED activity is normal and the drive does not accept a specific disc, the
disc has a problem such as scratches on its surface, warping or other reasons.
If the LED activity is abnormal, attempt loading with several discs (supported
by the drive). If the drive does not load any of them with the ON/DISC LED
lit in orange all the time, consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for repair.
No sound is audible when playing back a CD-DA (audio CD) disc.
● Make sure that the LINE OUT (L/R) jacks are properly connected to powered
speakers (optionally available) or other audio equipment. Also make sure all
volume controls are turned up.
The drive ejects or fails to read the disc, or the ON/DISC LED remains lit
in orange after the disc has been set (meaning that the disc has not been
loaded or recognized—P. 29).
● Disconnect the IEEE1394 interface cable from your drive but leave the power
cable connected. Now try loading the disc. If a specific disc is automatically
ejected or not loaded, that disc is a problem. If the drive does not accept any
supported discs (with the ON/DISC LED lit in orange), consult your nearest
Yamaha dealer for repair.
Errors occur when backing up at 6X or 8X speed directly from a separate
CD-ROM drive to the CRW8824IX drive.
● A possible reason is that the CD-ROM drive is not fast enough to transfer data
to the CRW8824IX drive. Please use a high-speed CD-ROM drive. You may
still encounter errors even if you are using a ultra-fast 32X or 42X speed CDROM drive, in which case the problem may be a matter of the reliability in
reading data on that drive. Therefore, before writing directly at 6X or faster
speed on the CRW8824IX drive, you should perform a test by writing a disc
or two.
You can also refer to the following solutions.
24
Troubleshooting
The “Buffer Underrun” error message is displayed.
● Try the following:
• Lower the writing speed setting.
• Create an image file of the CD on the computer's hard drive.
• Defragment the hard drive.
• Close other applications such as screensaver, task scheduler, and so on.
• Turn hard drive power management off.
• Deactivate Active Desktop (for Windows users).
• Disable network access.
• Deactivate resident software (Items in Windows task bar or Mac menu bar).
• Make sure that the CD writing software is appropriately configured (See
the documentation for that software).
• Connect the CRW8824IX drive solely to the host computer.
n If there is a slower device connected between the host computer and CRW8824IX
drive, the data transfer between CRW8824IX drive and the host computer will go
slow, which may cause failure in writing a CD.
n Errors can occur if you vibrate the CRW8824IX drive while it is writing to disc.
n When doing packet writing on a CD-RW disc, the actual data capacity becomes
approximately 100MB less than stated on the cover of the disc. It is because packet
writing requires an additional area on the disc.
Unstable operations.
● Do you have several kinds of CD writing software installed to the same
system?
Such a situation may cause conflict, resulting in unstable operations.
● Has dust or dirt collected on the disc surface?
If so, clean the disc surface using an air spray or by wiping using a lint-free
cloth. Remember to wipe the surface from the center of the disc to the edge.
Be careful not to scratch it.
Other symptoms
Your CD writing software does not recognize the CRW8824IX drive.
● That software you are using may not support the drive. Consult the software
manufacturer for compatibility with the CRW8824IX drive.

Track-at-Once (TAO)
This mode is used when writing data to a disc one track at a time. More tracks
can be added later if there is enough space left on the disc. This is why Track-atOnce mode is sometimes referred to as Multisession.

Appendix
Session-at-Once (SAO)
As a writing method that combines the advantages of the above-mentioned “Discat-Once” and “Track-at-Once,” you can combine multiple tracks into one session
and write them, and then add additional data.
For example, this is the writing method used to create a CD EXTRA format CD.

Packet Writing
This mode is used when writing to a track of a disc using small blocks of data
called “packets,” in a manner similar to a floppy disk. This mode is useful when
making small incremental backups of data. You will need to use software which
specifically supports packet writing, such as Adaptec’s DirectCD.

Same as writing to floppy or hard disk
n Discs must be formatted before they can be used for packet writing. With CD-RW,
erased data can be overwritten until the disc is completely full.
With CD-R, the space used by the erased data cannot be reused and is “masked” so that
it is no longer visible. This can be done up to 100 times.
