Introduction
Features of the CRW2200SX Drive
High speed writing/reading
The CRW2200SX drive supports up to 20X-speed writing of CD-R discs,*1 and up
to 10X-speed writing/rewriting of CD-RW discs.*2 Furthermore, the drive supports
data reading and digital audio data extraction at up to 40X speed.
SafeBurn™ (Enhanced write stability technology)
Generous 8MB of buffer memory
Because of the large data storage area, stable disc writing is possible even at fast
speeds.
Buffer Underrun Protection
When data transfer from the host PC is interrupted, Buffer Underrun Protection is
activated to keep precious CD-R discs from going to waste. (→P. 3)
Optimum Write Speed Control
Before writing to a CD-R, the CRW2200SX drive checks the disc’s capability and
automatically selects the optimum writing speed*3 for greater reliability. The speed
you set is the maximum writing speed.
Reliable writing
Yamaha’s proprietary Pure-Phase Laser System (patent applied for)
This technology reduces phase interference of the laser beam, so that it projects
accurately onto the disc. Jitter value, an important measure of recording quality, has
been improved 25% compared with Yamaha models not using this technology.
Running OPC (Optimum Power Control)
Running OPC automatically adjusts the output of the laser according to the
characteristics of the disc being used. Running OPC provides greatly enhanced
recording reliability for various manufacturer’s discs.
High-fidelity digital audio
The CRW2200SX drive supports extraction of digital audio data at up to 40X speed,
as well as the recording of digital sound with complete fidelity even when writing at
20X speed.

Introduction
CD TEXT support
Information such as the song name or artist name can be recorded on Audio CDs
using CD creation software. The text data on the created disc can be displayed on a
CD player that is compatible with the CD TEXT format.
*1 16X- or 20X-speed writing is enabled with the Partial CAV method. (→P. 7)
*2 10X-speed writing/rewriting is enabled with the CLV method and the 4X-10X Full CAV method. (→P. 8)
*3 The optimal writing speed automatically selected will be between 8X speed and the maximum speed designated
for that disc. If the disc is rated at lower than 8X speed writing, you need to designate the most suitable writing
speed manually.

Introduction
Buffer Underrun Defined
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 writing error occurs. This error is known as a “buffer
underrun error.”

A Buffer Underrun Error will permanently ruin the disc.
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.

Yamaha Buffer Underrun Protection ensures error-free results.
Test-writing for Buffer Underrun
You can run a check for the likely occurence of Buffer Underrun by Test-writing a CD-RW
disc. The occurrence of a Buffer Underrun depends on your computer system and the CD-R/
RW drive.
Most writing software includes test-writing functions to check the likely occurrence of
Buffer Underrun before actually writing the disc.
Buffer Underrun Protection is set to ON by default. Test-writing is not available in this
setting. To use test-writing with your computer system, the Buffer Underrun Protection
should be set to OFF. (For more details, refer to the documentation that came with your CD
writing software.)

Before Use
Supported Discs
The CRW2200SX drive can write to discs that carry the following logos:
CD-R discs*1
The CRW2200SX drive can write to these discs at 1X, 2X, 4X, 8X, 12X, 16X,
or 20X speed. These discs can be played back in a CD-ROM drive or a CD
player.
Notes
• 16X- or 20X-speed writing is enabled with Partial CAV method. (→P. 7)
• For 8X or faster writing, use CD-R discs that match their respective writing
speeds.
CD-RW discs*2
There are two types of CD-RW discs: those that support write/rewrite speeds
of 1X, 2X, and 4X, and those that support only 2X. The CRW2200SX drive
can write/rewrite at 2X or 4X speed on the first type of disc, and at 2X on the
second type of disc. These discs can be read/played on a device (e.g., CDROM drive) that supports “CD-RW.”
High Speed CD-RW discs*3
These discs allow writing/rewriting at 4X to 10X speeds. The CRW2200SX
drive can write/rewrite these discs at 4X, 8X, or 10X speed. 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.”
Note
10X-speed writing/rewriting is enabled with the CLV method, and the 4X-10X
Full CAV method. (→P. 8)
• 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.

Before Use
About the Orange Book
The Orange Book standard defines how all recordable discs (including CD-R and CD-RW) are
written. Part 2 of the Orange Book standard relates to CD-R discs, and Part 3 to CD-RW discs.
The standard was named after the color of the book’s cover.
About CD-ROMs
A CD-ROM disc is a compact disc containing high-density read-only data. It has
many applications, including the playback of music and video, the archiving of
data, as well as on-line documentation. The following are descriptions of each
CD-ROM format:
CD-DA: Up to 79 minutes of stereo audio is written in 16-bit resolution at a
sampling rate of 44.1 kHz for a 79 minute disc.
Data CD: Up to 700 megabytes of computer data is stored in standard ISO9660
format for a 700 MB disc.
Video CD: These hold movies in which video and audio data has been
compressed using MPEG-1 technology.
About Partial CAV (Constant Angular Velocity)
Writing to a CD-R disc is normally done using the CLV (Constant Linear
Velocity) method. In this method, the disc rotation speed is adjusted so as to
keep a constant data transfer rate at any portion of the disc. In other words, the
disc rotation speed will vary in CLV writing.
In contrast, the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) method uses a constant disc
rotation speed for all portions of the disc so that the data transfer rate will vary.
Because the CAV method has the advantage of largely increasing the data
transfer rate with a minimum load to the drive’s mechanism (compared to CLV’s
rotation speed adjustment), many current CD-ROM drives use the CAV method.
CD formats define the constant linear density of written data (data should be
written onto the disc at a constant pitch) so that the amount of recorded data per
disc rotation will increase as the writing point moves from the inner to the outer.
In other words, in CAV writing the outer portion has an increased data transfer
rate.
The CRW2200SX drive uses the CAV method in the inner portions as well as
the CLV method in the outer portions (Partial CAV) in order to enable up to
20X-speed writing. 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.
7
Before Use
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
(→P. 29), you can also select the Full CAV method. For more details, refer to the
documentation that came with your CD writing software. (Make sure that your
CD writing software supports the Full CAV method.) For direct editing of a file
on a CD-RW disc, the Full CAV method is recommended.
Serial Number
Once you have taken the CRW2200SX drive out of its packaging, you should
immediately note down the serial number found at the bottom of the drive with the

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 CRW2200SX 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.

Setup Procedures
Notes
• The SCSI ID number for each device on the chain must be unique. Make sure the CRW2200SX
drive’s SCSI ID number is not the same as that of any other device on the chain. By factory
default, the CRW2200SX 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 CRW2200SX
drive is the last device on the SCSI chain. If the CRW2200SX drive is not the
last device on the chain, the TERMINATOR dip switch should be set to OFF.

● Has the disc been placed on the disc tray correctly?
If not, place the disc properly and close the disc 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 discs (audio CD, CD-ROM, blank CD-R disc, etc.)?
If the drive does not accept a specific disc, the disc itself must be the problem.
Check for scratches, warping, or other reasons. If the drive does not accept any
disc, consult your nearest Yamaha dealer for repair.
The drive does not operate correctly.
● Is the disc compatible with the CRW2200SX drive? (→P. 32)
Even if the disc is of a type compatible with the CRW2200SX drive, some
varieties of discs may still be unreadable on it. However, blank discs cannot be
played.
● 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.
● For Macintosh users
If extension files supporting the drive are not installed, the disc cannot be
mounted or read.
Extension files are included in the CD writing software.

● Is the terminator of the last device in the SCSI chain set to ON, or, if it has no
built-in termination, has a terminator been attached? (→P. 13)
● Does your computer have several different CD writing software installed?
If you use two or more CD writing software simultaneously, the behavior of the
drive can become unpredictable.
25
Troubleshooting
The drive ejects or fails to read the disc, or the LED on the front panel remains
lit in orange after the disc has been loaded (meaning that the disc has not been
recognized). (→P. 31)
● Shut down the computer. Then disconnect the SCSI cable from the drive but
leave the AC adapter connected. Now try loading the disc.
● There may be problems with the disc itself. If the drive fails to recognize a variety
of discs including audio CDs, CD-ROMs, and blank CD-R/RW discs (the LED
on the front panel remains lit in orange after a disc has been inserted), you should
contact your nearest Yamaha dealer.
No sound of CD-DA (audio CD) disc is audible.
● Check that the LINE OUT jacks (L/R) of the CRW2200SX drive is connected
correctly to the sound card or amplified speakers. (→P. 10)
● For users with Windows Me, no sound is audible from headphones connected to
the headphone jack of the CRW2200SX drive or from powered speakers
connected to the LINE OUT jacks (L/R) on the rear panel of the CRW2200SX
drive. Make sure settings are as shown below.

Notes on Packet Writing
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
