Quick Start Guide for DN-C550R Professional CD/CD

Quick Start Guide for DN-C550R Professional CD/CD-R Combi-Deck
The DN-C550R features both a CD Playback drive and a CD-R/RW drive, housed in a single unit, to provide you with a
variety of recording and playback options either independently or in combination. Some functions become available to use
only after you make a specified setting. Some functions are initially locked, to prevent mishaps such as damaging important
recordings. For best performance, and to match to your specific task, we recommend you optimize several settings before
each use. This Quick Start Guide is designed to help you do just that!
For detailed information or advanced functions, please refer to the Instruction Manual.

After making your choice, press the MULTI JOG dial to confirm your selection.
Pressing the [PLAY] button on either side will start your recording.
NOTES:
• Digital copying may not be possible due to SCMS restrictions if “SCMS ENA” is selected in the setup menu , and if the playback (source)
disc already contains SCMS. In this case, copying is automatically performed at normal speed and using analog signals only.
• Digital copying is possible if “SCMS INH” is selected in the setup menu , even if the playback (source) disc already contains SCMS. In
this case, copying can be performed at either normal or high speeds using digital signals.
• Real time analog signal copying is always performed in the normal speed mode.
•Of course, the CD-R/RW disc must have enough available time to record the CD source disc. If this condition is not met, then
“CD-R Short” is displayed and both the CD and CD-R units are set to the stop mode. If this happens, check the disc’s recordable time.
EXCEPTIONAL CASE: Sometimes when recording track numbers 21 or higher, “CD-R Short” might not be displayed even though the
source time you want to record exceeds the recordable time left on the CD-R/RW.
• For some CDs, the text cannot be copied because of copyright protection. In this case “Text Protect” is displayed.
• Do not turn off the power or unplug the power cord while “Now PMA Rec” (PMA: Temporaly Program Memory Area) is displayed after
recording is completed. Doing so may
render the disc unusable.
