in the industry, up to five times faster than conventional CD-RW or DVD-ROM drives,
this recorder blazes when processing music!
Buffer Memory: All Yamaha CRW2200 Series CD-ReWritable drives offer 8MB of generous
buffer memory, virtually eliminating buffer underrun and preventing wasted time and media.
3
Safeburn Buffer Management System: SafeBurn is the most comprehensive buffer
management system in the industry, designed not only to eliminate buffer underruns
but also allow you to burn CDs while running multiple applications.
Purephase Laser System: This exclusive Yamaha anti-glare laser technology
compensates for unwanted reflections created on the disc surface during recording,
reducing jitter rates by over 25% for enhanced reliability and improved performance.
Breakthrough Technology: By employing partial CAV (Constant Angular Velocity)
technology, this recorder requires no additional time to control the rotation speed of its
motor, allowing faster, smoother recording.
Waste-Proof Write Strategy : By combining CAV writing support for on-the-fly
data backup specific fine tunings to the included recording software and Yamaha’s
exclusive SafeBurn Buffer Management System, this recorder provides a robust, stable
recording environment that virtually eliminates buffer underruns and wasted media.
RapidLinked™ Packet Writing: Drag and drop files to CD on at a time or all at once.
CD Text Support: Encode music CD album and track titles, arts name and messages directly
onto disc.
Flash-ROM: Instantly upgrade your CD-RW recorder via software to optimize performance and

1.2.2. Main Applications for Yamaha’s 3-in-1 CD-RW Series of Drives:
Music: Record your own original music on CDs or compile your favorite songs and
create new Audio CDs.
Images & Graphics: Most scanned or digital photos, digital video and computer generated
graphics are notoriously large to record on contemporary, portable media. Now you can
record your images on CDs and free your hard drive space for other uses.
Backup and Archive: Save critical information in the least expensive way. For just
pennies per megabyte, you can back-up to CD-ReWritable media or archive valuable
information for future reference. CDs are recognized as the most reliable, long-lasting
medium to store data. Plus, unlike other media used for backup or archiving, the information
stored on a CD is instantly accessible.
Distribute and Transfer Data: Send multimedia presentations and catalogs with highresolution images and CD-quality sound to anyone. With Yamaha CD-ReWritable drives,
you do not have to worry about media compatibility. Any ordinary CD-ROM drive can read
the data you store on a CD-R media using a CD-ReWritable drive.
1.2.3. CD-ReWritable Drives vs. CD-Recordable Drives
All Yamaha CD-RW drives are “multi-function” or “3-in-1” drives. This means that your new
drive may be used as a CD-R drive (to write once on CD-R media), a CD-RW drive
(to rewrite up to 999 times on CD-RW media), or as a CD-ROM drive (to play audio or
computer CDs).
1.2.4. How CD-RW Drives Write and Re-Write
To write on CD-R media, CD-RW drives write data by burning tiny pits into a green, gold,
or blue dye layer. The disc is read by a head which is simply looking for the absence or
presence of reflected laser light.
To re-write on CD-RW media, CD-RW drives write data by altering the alignment of crystalline structures in the media. When the disc is read by a laser, these changes in the
crystalline structure alter the phase of the effected light. The disc can be “wiped clean”
in an erase process that realigns the crystalline elements.
Your new Yamaha 3-in-1 CD-RW drive automatically recognizes and accommodates whatever
CD media is inserted. For better clarification, please study the table on the next page:

1.2.5. About Partial CAV Writing Method
Writing to a CD-R disc is normally done using CLV (Constant Linear Velocity) method. In this
method, the disc’s rotation speed is adjusted continuously to keep a steady data transfer rate.
The data transfer rate, in the CLV method, is held constant but, because of the smaller size of the
inner circles of the disc versus the large outer circles, the disc speed is adjusted depending upon
which portion of the disc data is being recorded on (i.e. if recording on the inner edge versus the
outer edge, the disc should rotate faster to keep up with the data transfer rate - which is held
steady throughout the writing cycle.)
In contrast, the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) method keeps the disc’s rotation speed constant while adjusting the data transfer rate depending upon which portion of the disc is being
recorded. In other words, in the CAV writing method, the outer portion of the disc should
receive an increased data transfer rate compared to the inner portion. Applying the CAV
method enables a significant increase in the data transfer rates with a minimum load increase to
the drive’s mechanism.
Yamaha’s new CRW2200 Lightspeed drives use the CAV method in the inner portions of the
disc while using CLV method in the outer portions of the disc in order to enable up to 20x of
writing speed. This is called a Partial CAV method.The drive will control the disc rotation speed
to start writing at 12X speed in the inner portions, gradually accelerating up to 20X speed and
maintaining 20X speed in the outer portions.
5
1.2.6) About 10X-speed writing/rewriting of a High Speed CD-RW Disc
10X-speed writing/rewriting of a High Speed CD-RW disc is enabled with the CLV method, and
the 4X-10X Full CAV method. Commonly, writing/rewriting is enabled with the CLV Method.
When writing/rewriting with packet writing, you can also select the Full CAV method.
For more details, refer to the documentation that came with your writing software. (Make sure
that your writing software supports the Full CAV method. The supplied writing software is supported.)
When you try to open and use a file recorded on a CD-RW disc with an application, Yamaha
recommends you using the Full CAV method.
1.2.7) What is “Buffer Underrun”
CD-R/RW drives are equipped with buffer memory. this memory temporarily stores data
while a disc is being recorded. When buffer memory becomes empty (due to unexpected
interruptions or the system’s inability to keep up with the writing process), a write error
occurs. This error is known as a “buffer underrun error”.

1.2.8) Yamaha Buffer Underrun Protection
Buffer Underrun Protection is featured in Yamaha’s CRW2200 series CD-R/RW drives.
When a buffer underrun is about to occur, a buffer underrun error is prevented by temporarily suspending the writing process. Writing resumes when enough data has accumulated again in buffer memory. Buffer Underrun Protection on the CRW2200 series is
extremely accurate, resulting in seamless recording between stop and continuation points.

3.2. Rear Panel of CRW2200SXZ (SCSI)
Before beginning the short process to install your new Yamaha CD-RW 3-in-1 drive, please
take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rear panel of the drive as illustrated below:
(The layout of your actual drive may be slightly different due to ongoing improvements.)

➃
➂
➄
➀ LINE OUT jacks (L/R)
To listen to audio CDs with the CRW2200SXZ drive, connect these to the line level input
(LINE IN) of the stereo equipment with a standard stereo phono cable (sold separately).
➁ Power switch (STANDBY/ON)
Turns the power on or off.
➂ DC-IN connector
Insert the included AC adapter connector.
➃ SCSI connector
Insert the connector of the SCSI cable here.
A D-sub half-pitch 50-pin pin-type is used.
➄ Dip switch
Use to set the SCSI ID number and terminator.
3.3. Drive Settings (SCSI)
SCSI interface allows the connection of peripheral devices (both internal and external) to a
computer. Each SCSI peripheral has two SCSI connectors. By looping out of one device into
the next, it is possible to “daisy-chain” peripherals. The illustration below shows a properly
configured SCSI chain with both internal and external devices installed.
3.3.1. SCSI ID Settings
The SCSI ID number is used so that the computer will recognize a connected SCSI device.
You can assign 0 through 7 as the SCSI ID number. Usually, “7” is reserved for the SCSI
card ID number, and “0” is reserved for the first SCSI device in the chain. Use a number
between 1 and 6 for your new CD-RW drive. To set a SCSI ID number, use the switch on
the rear panel. The factory set ID number is “1”.
Important Note: If you are using other SCSI devices, be sure to use a unique ID number for each device. Be
sure to turn off the power to the drive before you set the SCSI number.
10
Important Note: If you are using Windows 95/98/ME, and the SCSI ID setting on the rear panel is the same
as the number assigned to another SCSI device, the Plug and Play component of Windows 95/98/ME will
automatically assign an unused number to your new CD-RW drive (SCAM protocol level 1).
Before connecting the CRW2200SXZ drive to the computer, you need to set up the
following using the dip switches located on the rear of the drive.
➀ SCSI ID Number
➁ Termination
Rear panel
Dip switches
1 24
ID SELECT
TERMINATOR
➀ SCSI ID Number
Each of the SCSI devices connected to the computer is identified by its own SCSI ID
number. You need to assign a number from “0” to “7” for each SCSI device.
Commonly, ID number “7” is reserved for the computer’s SCSI card itself.
Therefore, the CRW2200SXZ drive can actually be assigned an ID number from “0”
to “6.” Set the SCSI ID numbers using the three dip switches as shown below.
SCSI ID 0
SCSI ID 1
SCSI ID 2
SCSI ID 3
SCSI ID 6
SCSI ID 7
(Default)
SCSI ID 4
SCSI ID 5

Notes
• The SCSI ID number for each device on the chain must be unique. Make sure the CRW2200SXZ
drive’s SCSI ID number is not the same as that of any other device on the chain. By factory
default, the CRW2200SXZ drive is assigned ID number “1” but this can be changed.
• When setting the dip switch, move the lever completely upward or downward.
➁ Termination
Terminators prevent SCSI signals from being reflected off the last device in the
chain. The SCSI terminator dip switch should be set to ON if the CRW2200SXZ
drive is the last device on the SCSI chain. If the CRW2200SXZ drive is not the
last device on the chain, the TERMINATOR dip switch should be set to OFF.

3.4. About SCSI Controllers
This Yamaha CD-RW package does not include a SCSI host adapter. A host adapter
provides the interface between your PC and various peripheral devices. A wide range of
cards are available with various levels of performance, features and price. If you plan
to add peripherals such as scanners or external hard drives, you may want a more capable
host adapter. If, on the other hand, you plan to use the host adapter only to connect this
CD-RW, you may prefer a more economical controller. Yamaha recommends any of
Adaptec’s 2940 Series or Iwill’s 2930 Series of controller cards.
12
You can purchase SCSI controller cards from your local computer peripheral retailer or you may
contact Yamaha toll-free at 888-926-2426 to purchase a compatible SCSI controller card.
Once you have selected a SCSI host adapter card, install it in your computer following the
directions provided in the card manufacturer’s operating manual.
3.4.1. Installing a SCSI Adapter Card
1. Power down your computer and unplug it from the AC outlet.
If you proceed without doing this, you run the risk of receiving an electric
shock and/or short-circuiting and damaging components including the
CRW2200SXZ drive.
2. Remove the outer casing of the computer. If you need to remove screws in
the process, make sure you don’t lose them.
Important Note: The method for removing the casing can vary depending on the manufacturer.
Refer to the documentation that came with your computer for further details.
13
3. Ground yourself by touching your computer’s chassis or power supply unit to drain
any static charge that may have built up inside your body.
Drain any static charge
You can permanently damage equipment if you touch it while there is any
static charge in your body.
4. Locate an available slot for the SCSI adapter card and use a Phillips screwdriver to
remove the screw holding the slot’s blanking plate.

6. Attach the outer casing of the computer and any screws that were removed. Then
reconnect the computer to the electrical outlet but do not power it up yet.
15
3.4.2. SCSI Cables and Connectors
To select the proper SCSI cable, check your computer to see which connector it uses. Note
that your CD-RW drive uses an HD50 Female connector so that whatever cable you use will
need to have an HD50 Male connector on at least one end.
HD50 Connector: This connector will be found on your CD-RW drive. It is also found on
many newer SCSI controller cards and other SCSI peripherals. If the connector on you
computer looks like the one pictured below, you will need an HD50 Male to HD50 Male
(may also be called a SCSI-2 Male to SCSI-2 Male).
DB25: This connector will be found on Macintosh computers and some SCSI controller
cards used in PCs. If the connector on your computer looks like the one pictured below,
you will need a DB25 Male to HD50 Male.
Centronics 50-Pin: This connector will be found on many other external SCSI devices. If
you plan to “daisy-chain” your CD-RW drive to another peripheral device, you will need a
Centronics 50-pin to HD50 Male.
HDI-30: This small, square connector (not pictured) is used on Macintosh PowerBook computers.

not connect or disconnect any IEEE1394 devices while the CRW2200FXZ is in
• Dooperation
(especially when writing to a disc).
• If there is a slower device connected between the host computer and CRW2200FXZ drive,
the data transfer between CRW2200FXZ drive and the host computer will go slow, which
may cause failure in writing a CD.
• The IEEE1394 ports on the CRW2200FXZ 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 CRW2200FXZ drive on that bus may cause “broken communication”
between the host computer and the device directly connected to the CRW2200FXZ and
after. So, do keep all devices turned on while using them in the chain to avoid such problems.
• Check section 8 for hotplugging issues.

6. SOFTWARE
6.1) Nero - Burning ROM 5.5
With Nero – Burning ROM making CD's is really simple. There are a large variety of
options to help both the beginner and the professional – and the user has complete control over the CD-writing process all the time.
Using Nero, you can create many different types of CDs:
• Audio CD's
• Data CD's
• Mixed-mode CD's (audio and data)
• (Super)video CD's
• CD Extra
• Bootable CD's
• Hybrid CD's (for Windows and Mac)
• UDF CD's
6.2) InCD
Yamaha CD-RW recorder owners can use InCD CD-RW's to compile disks that can be
used as large data memories. You can use Windows Explorer to copy files by 'drag &
drop' onto the CD-RW, and you can store data from within any application onto the
CD-RW (and delete it again) discs. It is as if you had a floppy disk where you could
store 530 MB of data.
6.3) Nero Cover Designer
What is your own CD worth without its own individual cover? This is where Cover
Designer comes into its own. Simply start from within Nero, and the data and playlists
will be automatically transmitted from Nero to Cover Designer. It is also easy to scan,
import and edit images.
6.4) Nero Wave Editor
Wave Editor is the program to use if you want to edit audio files. By editing files nondestructively, you can check quickly whether the effect achieves the desired result. You can
improve the sound and reduce unwanted noise with the optimization methods provided.
Wave Editor is also the right choice if you want to transfer the music on your gramophone records to CDs.
6.5) Nero Toolkit
A number of small programs with different functions are provided here.
36
6.6) NeroMIX
NeroMIX is the application to use if you want to play audio files. It can reproduce audio
data, regardless of whether it is from a CD, hard disk, direct from the Internet or from an
externally connected device. In addition, visual effects can be reproduced that move to the
beat of the music and which can even create and modify themselves – providing many
hours of enjoyment.
6.7) Installation
Simply place the Nero installation CD in the CD or DVD drive or CD writer and wait until
the setup program appears. Then select the desired program and follow the instructions
on the screen. That's it!
6.8) Program Start
You can launch Nero – Burning ROM simply by clicking on the Nero symbol in the
Start -> Programs -> Ahead Nero menu. The Wizard that will lead you through the compilation and burning process will now start up.
Important Terms
Buffer Underrun Protection: New technology to prevent the buffer running empty, the socalled 'buffer underruns'. By selecting this option before you write, you will reliably prevent a situation where the burning procedure will be stopped because the flow of data to
the writer is too slow. We recommend that you always select this option.
Burning speed: When you burn a CD, the data must be transferred to the CD writer at a
particular speed (e.g. 3000 KB/s at 20x speed). If there is less data, the data transfer rate
is lower than the writing speed and Buffer Underrun Protection has not been selected, the
data flow will be interrupted and the burning process will be disrupted.
Image file: The files to be written are read first and then stored on the hard drive as an
image file. The image file itself is then used for burning.
The advantage with this is that the image file can be used repeatedly and the writing
process is quicker, should you possess a high-speed CD or DVD-ROM drive.
The drawback: the image file takes up to 800 MB of hard disk memory
Direct copying ('on-the-fly'): The files to be copied are written on the target CD immediately.
The benefit is that you can write really quickly should you possess a high-speed CD or
DVD-ROM as a (reading) drive. The downside – a buffer underrun can easier occur if
Buffer Underrun Protection has not been selected.
37
6.9) Other Software
There may be other, promotional software supplied in your new Yamaha 3-in-1 CD-RW
drive package. If so, please follow instructions on the software discs and/or screen
prompts (directions) to install the additional software.
7. MAKING CDs
7.1) Creating a CD
Making CD's is really simple, regardless of the source of the files (CD-ROM or hard disk)
or whether they are audio files or data.
7.2) Creating an Audio CD
After it has been written on, an audio CD is automatically terminated, i.e. it is not possible
to add more audio tracks.
Note: If you want to be able to play your CD's reliably on all types of equipment, you should only burn your
audio data onto CD-R media. CD-RW media are not yet supported by many types of players.
Audio CD's can be made in two different ways. The audio data to be written on the CD is
available either
• on one (or more) CD's or
• is already stored on the hard disk.
38
1. Start Nero, the Wizard will open automatically. Select the 'Compile a new CD' option.
Click on 'Next' and highlight 'Audio CD' in the next dialog.
2. Click on 'Next' and exit the Wizard in the next dialog by clicking on 'Finish'. The compilation and browser windows will appear.
3. In the browser window, select the desired drive and 'drag' the audio tracks (one after
the other) into the compilation window. Depending on the type of drive and the length of
the tracks, it can take between a couple of seconds and a few minutes until the audio data
is stored on your hard disk.
39
4. Once all the audio tracks have been put together, click on the 'Burn' button. The CD can
now be written on immediately ('Burn' option) or a test can first be conducted ('Test and
burn' option). Click on 'Burn' and the option will become available. That's it!
Note: If the audio data are of '.wav', '.mp3', '.vqf' or '.aiff' format, the files will be automatically converted
into the CD-DA format before burning, one with which CD-players are able to read audio CD's.
Distribution Discs
Copyrights
Warranty
When writing important data or
preparing data for distribution to
others, make sure that the disc can
be read properly before writing
duplicates.
When writing to CD-R/RW, make
sure that you are not infringing
any copyrights. It is illegal to copy
audio CDs for non-personal use.
When backing up software, please
make sure that you are not infringing any software copyrights for
that product.
Yamaha and suppliers accept no
liability for the loss of any data or
any problems caused as a result.
As a precaution, it is recommended that the discs are tested after
they have been written to.
Furthermore, under no circumstances does Yamaha and suppliers guarantee the reliability of the
discs.
7.3) Creating a Data CD
Unlike audio CD's, which can only be completely recorded 'in one go', you can record a
number of sessions on one data CD (so-called multi-session CD's). In other words, data
can be either recorded on a new CD or can be recorded as a new session on an existing
CD.
1. Start Nero, launch the Wizard, and select the 'Compile a new CD' option. Click on 'Next'
and highlight 'Data CD' in the next dialog.
40
2. Click on 'Next' and then, in the next dialog, specify whether you want to create a new
CD or continue an existing session. Then exit the Wizard by clicking on 'Finish'. The compilation and browser windows will appear.
3. In the browser window, select the desired drive and (one after the other) 'drag' the files
and/or directories that you wish to write into the compilation window.
4. Once all the data has been put together, click on the 'Burn' button. The CD can now be
written on immediately ('Write' option) or a test can first be conducted ('test and burn'
option). Click on 'Burn' and the option will become available. That's it!
41
7.4) Creating an Image File
An image file contains all the stored data that is to be burnt onto a CD.
One advantage is that an image file can be written onto CDs repeatedly, without having to
compile the data again each time. Because an image file takes up to 800 MB, it is a good
idea to check first to see how much memory is still free. You can create image files from
all data formats.
1. Start Nero and 'drag' the data, tracks and/or directories from the browser window into
the compilation window.
2. Click on the 'Burn' button and select the check box 'Create Image', then click on the
'Burn' button.
42
3. Give a name to the image file you wish to store and click on 'Save'.
7.5) Loading an Image File
1. Start Nero, launch the Wizard, select the 'Compile a new CD' option and then click on
the 'Next' button.
2. Select the 'Other CD formats' option and click on 'Next'.
3. Select the 'Create a CD from an image file' option and click on 'Next'.
4. In the next dialog, click on the 'Finish' button to exit the Wizard. Highlight the image
file (.nrg) and click on the 'Open' button.
5. Disable the 'Create Image' check box (if it has been selected) and click on the 'Burn'
button.
7.6) Copying a CD
If the CD that you wish to copy has a standardized CD format (and you are not breaking
any copyright laws) you can make a backup copy of a CD.
1. Start Nero, launch the Wizard, select the 'Copy a CD' option and then click on the
'Next' button.
43
2. Select the drive where the original CD is located and click on 'Next'.
3. Click on 'Burn' to start copying the CD.
7.7) Continuing a Multi-session CD
1. Start Nero, launch the Wizard, select the 'Compile a new CD' option and then click on
the 'Next' button.
2. In the next dialog, highlight 'Data CD' and click on 'Next'. Now select the 'Continue an
existing data CD (multi-session)' option and click on 'Next'.
44
3. Highlight a track and click on 'OK' (normally you would use the last track selected,
which is highlighted).
4. Exit the Wizard in the next dialog by clicking on 'Finish'. The compilation and browser
windows will appear.
5. In the browser window, select the desired drive and (one after the other) 'drag' the files
and/or directories that you wish to write into the compilation window.
6. Once all the data has been put together, click on the 'Burn' button. The CD can now be
written on immediately ('Burn' option) or a test can first be conducted ('Test and burn'
option). Click on 'Burn', and the option will become available. That's it!
7.8) Working with InCD
InCD only functions with rewritable media (CD-RW's). InCD formats a CD-RW in such a
way that it can be used like a large floppy disk, i.e. files can be added by 'drag & drop'
with the Windows Explorer, or deleted. Similarly, it is possible to save files from any application, for instance from 'Word'.
45
InCD starts automatically when the computer is booted, and the corresponding symbol
appears in the Windows task bar.
There is a UDF-formatted CD in the drive.
There is no CD (or no UDF-formatted CD-RW) in the drive.
Formatting a CD-RW: With the right-hand mouse button, click on the InCD icon in the
Windows task bar and select 'Format'. Follow the instructions in the dialog and select the
CD-RW recorder and formatting method. Start formatting by clicking on the 'Finish' button.
Ejecting a CD-RW: Media formatted with InCD can no longer be ejected using the button
on the CD-RW recorder but only by means of the corresponding InCD command. With the
right-hand mouse button, click on the InCD icon in the Windows task bar and select
'Eject'.
Note: Media that has been written on with InCD can be read on another Windows PC if you install the UDF
reading drivers (found on the installation CD).

drive and the SCSI card listed in Control Panel | System | Device Manager tab. The
drive will be listed when you double-click on CDROM and the SCSI card will be listed
when you double-click on SCSI controllers.
When you power up your computer, you can access the machine’s hardware BIOS settings before Windows is loaded. You can set your computer to recognize the SCSI card
and the drive in the BIOS.
Important Note: The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a small program that resides on a ROM chip on the
computer’s motherboard as well as on some expansion cards. It checks the system and its devices (such as
serial ports and hard disk controllers) before loading the operating system (OS).
47
●
Are you using the correct SCSI driver?
If the SCSI card has not been installed correctly under Windows 95/98/ME, make sure
that you have installed the most recent drivers supplied by the SCSI card manufacturer.
If the SCSI card has not been installed correctly under Windows NT, update to the
most recent ASPI drivers supplied by the manufacturer of the SCSI card or the
CD-writing software.
For more information about the latest version of any driver, please contact the respective
hardware/software manufacturers.
●
Is the SCSI adapter card recognized correctly by the operating system (OS)?
The drivers for your SCSI adapter card may be incorrect. For more details, contact the
manufacturer of your SCSI adapter card.
●
Is the drive’s SCSI ID number the same s that of another device on the SCSI chain?It
should be set to ON only if it is the last device on the SCSI chain. Otherwise it should be
set to OFF.
●
Is the termination of the SCSI card set such that internal SCSI devices can be
connected?
Please read the instructions that came with your SCSI card for details.
●
To write to CD-R/RW discs, your CD writing software must support the drive. To find out
if it does, contact the manufacturer of your CD writing software.
My FireWire CRW2200FXZ drive is not recognized by the operating system.
● Is the drive properly connected to the computer using a known-good IEEE 1394 interface
cable?
● Does
the IEEE1394 interface (bus interface) appear in the operating system’s information
window?
If not, refer to the documentation that came with the IEEE1394 interface card for
details. If the IEEE194 interface is a built-in type, read the documentation that
came with your computer. Consult the manufacturer for possible solutions.
If the operating system recognizes the IEEE1394 interface, but the CRW2200FXZ
drive is not recognized, consult the dealer where you purchased the drive for repair.
The disc tray does not come out.
● Is the drive powered up?
●
Some CD writing applications will lock the disc tray once loaded. In which case, use the
eject command from within the application. Alternatively, read the manual that came with
the application.
The drive does not operate correctly.
● Is the disc compatible with the drive?
Important Note: Even if the disc is a type compatible with the drive, some varieties can still be unreadable on it.
●
Is there dust on the disc tray or on the disc itself?
●
Is the terminator of the last device on the SCSI chain set to “ON?” Or if it has not built-in
termination, has a terminator been attached? (SCSI units only)
●
Does the computer have a sufficient power supply?
The drive has a power consumption of 11W (when reading and writing).
●
Does your computer have several different CD writing applications installed?
If you use more than one CD writing application simultaneously, the behavior of the drive
can become unpredictable.
48
The drive ejects or fails to read the disc, or the ON/DISC LED continues to blink in
orange after the disc has been loaded (meaning that the disc has not been recognized).
●
Disconnect the SCSI cable from the drive but leave the power cable connected,
then load a disc (SCSI units only).
●
You may be trying to write to an unusable disc. If the drive fails to write to a variety of
different discs, it may be faulty and you should contact your nearest Yamaha dealer.
The “Buffer Underrun”
●
If your CD writing software supports the Buffer Underrun Protection, you must activate
the Buffer underrun Protection. For more details, refer to the documentation that came
with your CD writing software.
●
For more effective writing, and to avoid causing”Buffer Underrrun,” try the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Lower the writing speed setting.
Create an image file of the CD on the computer’s hard disk.
Optimize the hard drive (Defragment the drive).
When writing, close other applications (including screen savers, etc.).
Tun hard disk power management off.
Select “Sync data transfer” for the transfer mode setting of the SCSI devices, such
as a hard drive, or a CD-ROM drive, etc.
For IDE devices, select “DMA” for the setting of transfer mode.
• Deactivate the Active Desktop (if you are using Internet Explorer 4 or later).
• Close residential software.
• Make sure the trouble does not stem from your CD writing software by referring to
the documentation that came with it.
Important Note: If there is a slower device connected between the host computer and CRW2200FXZ drive, the
data transfer between CRW2200FXZ drive and the host computer willed be slowed, which may cause a failure in
writing a CD.
Errors can occur if you knock or move the CRW2200FXZ drive while it is writing to dixc.
Unstable Operations
●
Do you have several kinds of CD writing software installed to the same system? Such
as situation may cause a 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 in a motion perpendicular to the center of the disc.
Be careful not to scratch it.
49
Other Symptoms
Your CD writing software does not recognize the CRW2200FXZ drive.
●
That the software you are using may not support the drive. Consult the software
manufacturer for the compatability with the CRW2200FXZ dirve.
No sound of CD-DA (audio CD) disc is audible
●
Check that the LINE OUT jacks (L/R) of the CRW2200FXZ drive is connected correctly to
the sound card or powered speakers.
●
For users with Windows Me, no sound is udible from headphones connected to the
headphone jack of the CRW2200FXZ drive or from powered speakers connected to the
LINE OUT jacks (L/R) on the rear panel of the CRW2200FXZ drive. Make sure settings
are as shown below. (When you are using Windows Media Player 7.0 with Windows
Me, the above symptom is known to exist because the default setting is set to ON for
“Digital playback.”)
1 The “Properties” setting of the CRW2200FXZ drive.
1 Open the “YAMAHA CRW2200E Properties” window and click on the “Properties”
tab.
2 Uncheck the “Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.” check box.
1 The “Properties” setting of the CRW2200FXZ drive.
1 Start “Windows Media Player.”
2 Click “Tools” on the Menu and click on “Options” to open the “Options” window,
then click on the “CD Audio” tab.
3 Uncheck the “Digital playback” check box.
50
Important Note: When using packet writing on a CD-RW disc, the actual data capacity is 100MB less than that
stated on the cover of the disc. The difference in capacity is dependent on the writing mode.
Do I need a special SCSI-3 cable to connect my new CRW2200SXZ to my PC?
●
No. The Yamaha SCSI-3 drives are SCSI-3 devices which mean that they support the
SCSI-3 command set. They do not, however, use SCSI-3 connectors.Refer to page15 to
lear more about SCSI cables and connectors. Bear in mind CRW2200SXZ is capable of
transfer rates of up to 20 Megabytes per second and can operate at their peak performance
using standard SCSI-2, 50-pin connectors.
Errors occur when backing up at 8x or higher speeds from a separate CD-ROM drive to the
new Yamaha drive.
●
A possible reason is that the CD-ROM drive is not suitable. Please use a high-speed
CD-ROM drive. However, for various possible reasons, you may still encounter errors
even if you are using a 32X or 42X speed CD-ROM drive. Therefore, before writing
directly at 6X or faster speed, you should check that it is possible to do so by choosing
to test before writing
I cannot read a CD-RW disc in my new Yamaha CRW2200 series drive?
●
Please read the table in section 1.2.5) on page 5 of this Quick Start Guide.
I cannot read a CD-RW disc recorded by my CRW2200 series drive in another CD-RW drive?
●
Check to see if the “High Speed” logo is displayed on the other CD-RW drive. Please
read the table in section 1.2.5.) on page 5 of this Quick Start Guide.
How do I use a CD-RW disc?
●
InCD only functions with rewritable media (CD-RW's). InCD formats a CD-RW in such
a way that it can be used like a large floppy disk, i.e. files can be added by 'drag &
drop' with the Windows Explorer, or deleted. Similarly, it is possible to save files from
any application, for instance from 'Word'.process takes about 1.5 minutes.
InCD starts automatically when the computer is booted, and the corresponding symbol
appears in the Windows task bar.
There is a UDF-formatted CD in the drive.
There is no CD (or no UDF-formatted CD-RW) in the drive.
Formatting a CD-RW: With the right-hand mouse button, click on the InCD icon in the
Windows task bar and select 'Format'. Follow the instructions in the dialog and select the
CD-RW recorder and formatting method. Start formatting by clicking on the 'Finish' button.
Ejecting a CD-RW: Media formatted with InCD can no longer be ejected using the button
on the CD-RW recorder but only by means of the corresponding InCD command. With the
right-hand mouse button, click on the InCD icon in the Windows task bar and select
'Eject'.
51
When I copy data or music, why can’t my CD-ROM drive or CD players see the
information or play the music?
●
It might be because you are using a CD-RW disc. Most older CD-ROM drives
and CD players do not recognize the rewriteable media, so they won’t be able to
read the information.
What should I do if I get a gray screen on start-up with my new MAC Tower (Blue) G3?
●
See details below for work-around.
Try starting up the computer with the power OFF on the Yamaha drive. When the
computer is totally up, turn ON the Yamaha drive and use ADAPTEC’S SCSI Probe 5.1
(download SCSI Probe at http://www.adaptec.com/support/overview/macintosh.html)
to mount the drive to the OS. Then open Toast to make CDs.
If you still can’t get your computer to start up, go to your SCSI card manufacture web
site and download the current BIOS flash utility and the current firmware from Yamaha.
Install the updates and restart the computer with the Yamaha drive turned OFF until the
computer is totally up.
No sound is audible when playing back CD-DA (audio CD) dics.
●
Check that the line out (L/R) connector of the drive is connected correctly to
your sound card or amplified speakers.
Windows used to see my CRW2200FXZ, but now it doesn’t. How do I get it back?
●
Make sure that the drive is on before you connect it to the PC. If it still won’t mount, do
this “RESET” procedure below.
1.) While the drive is ON and connected to the PC, turn it off
2.) Wait for 15 seconds, then disconnect the firewire cable
3.) Apply the power back to the drive
4.) Wait for 15 seconds, and now reconnect the firewire cable to the drive.
My CRW2200FXZ/SXZ is noisy when the disc spins up, is this normal?
●
Yes. Like many of the fast CD-ROMs, the CRW2200FXZ/SXZ uses the CAV (Constant
Angular Velocity) method to achieve high constant disc rotation speed to increase the
data transfer rate. The drive can get very noisy when spinning up a new disc, which is
much louder than the usual levels of disc operation.
I do not seem to be able to rip audio CDs at 40x. How can I reach the maximum 40x
audio ripping speed?
●
It is important to understand that your new CRW2200 series CD-RW recorder could
achieve the 40x maximum ripping speed via CAV (Constant Angular Velocity - see page
6 of the Quick Start Guide for details), which is increasingly becoming common in most
top performing CD-ROM and CD-RW recorders today. What it means is that audio
ripping in the most inner portion of the disc starts at about 16x and progresses further
until reaching 40x at the outer portion of the CD. Hence, one should calculate an
estimated time.
52
For example, if you try to calculate an average rip speed for this CAV-equipped recorder,
depending on system configurations and the quality of the audio disc used, you will be
able to reach an average speed somewhere in the 30x neighborhood (which, in practice,
is very fast) allowing you to rip a full disc in about 3 minutes. But, if you would like to
measure the maximum rip speed achieved, you will notice that reaching 40x will happen
towards the very end of the disc.
Using CRW2200FXZ (IEEE1394 model) on PCs running Windows 98 Second Edition:
●
Yamaha recommends updating the IEEE 1394 device driver on Windows 98
Second Edition (SE) to optimize the operation of your new Yamaha CRW2200FXZ.
IEEE 1394 products are “hotpluggable” which means that you could plug or
un-plug your new drive while the computer is on. However, this function is not
supported on standard Windows 98 Second Edition systems. After updating the
IEEE 1394 drivers for your Windows 98 SE, this function will become available.
Moreover, this update is designed to improve overall performance of IEEE 1394
products. To update the driver, you must run "Windows 98 Second Edition 1394
Storage Supplement" from Microsoft.
Note that, if you have another IEEE products attached to your system or if you
have installed any other application utilizing IEEE 1394 interface, except the
software that came with your new CRW2200FXZ, please confirm the compatibility
of "Windows 98 Second Edition 1394 Storage Supplement" with the respective
hardware or software in use by contacting the manufacturer of the device or
software. Note that Yamaha is not responsible for any problems that might
result from performing the update.
●
How to Update Windows 98 SE IEEE 1394 device driver.
Before you begin, please confirm that you are running Windows 98 SE. To do so,
open the Control Panel > System > General tab and confirm the system that is displayed on general tab. Also, find out whether CRW2200FXZ is connected to the
IEEE 1394 Interface on computer and that it is set up correctly. To do that please
refer to your new drive's Quick Start Guide.
To update the IEEE 1394 driver, click on the Start button, then click on Settings
and select Windows Update and then select Product Updates from the menu
displayed. Choose "Windows 98 Second Edition 1394 Storage Supplement" from
the selection bar. Download the update by following instruction on Microsoft
web site. Refer to the URL below if you run into difficulties:

9. APPENDIX
9.1. Writing Modes
9.1.1. Disc-at-Once (DAO)
This mode is used when writing a complete disc in a single pass without pausing. Data
cannot be added later, even if the full capacity of the blank disc has not been used.
Example: General CD-ROM

Lead-out
The lead-in and lead-out areas signify the beginning and end points of a
session. They are not part of the data but contain information about the
session itself. Basically, a session consists of a lead-in, data, and a lead-out.
9.1.2. 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-at-Once mode is
sometimes referred to as Multisession.

Only the first session of a multisession disc can be played back on a conventional
audio CD player. Single session discs can be played back completely.
54
9.1.3. Session-at-Once (SAO)
As a writing method that combines the advantages of the above-mentioned “Disc-atOnce” 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. The audio
tracks will be recorded in the first session and the data will be recorded in the second.

9.1.4. 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.

Packet
Same as writing to floppy or hard disk
Discs must be formatted before they can be used for packet writing. With CDRW, 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.
55
9.2. About the Firmware
The “firmware” is a small piece of software built into the CRW2200SXZ and CRW2200FXZ
drive, and is used to control its basic operation. Since it resides in flash memory, it can
be overwritten and updated.
