* The recording time are estimates and actual
recording time may differ.
* The audio and video quality is getting poorer as
the recording time becomes longer.
* Each time [REC SPEED] is press, allowed
recording time will be displayed.
Note
• This recorder cannot record on CD-RW or
CD-R discs.
• DVD-RW/R and CD-RW/R discs recorded on a
personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder
may not be played back if the disc is damaged or
dirty or if there is dirt of condensation on the
player’s lens.
• If you record on a disc using a personal computer,
there are cases in which it may not be played back
because of the settings of the application software
used to create the disc, even if it is recorded in a
compatible format. (Check with the software publisher for more detailed information.)
• Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit cannot
record additionally using other DVD recorders.
• A DVD-RW disc formatted in Video mode with this
unit cannot be used on other DVD recorders.
• Since the recording is made by the variable bit rate
(VBR) method, the actual remaining time for recording may be a little bit shorter than the remaining
time displayed on the OSD, depending on the picture you are recording.

Getting started
What is “CPRM”?
This is a format used to record copy-once programs. By recording coded data on the area of
DVD discs that ordinary writing software cannot write, it prevents copy-once programs from
being recorded repeatedly on different media.
This unit is CPRM compatible, which means
that you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but then you cannot make a copy of
those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be
made on DVD-RW discs formatted in VR
mode, and CPRM recordings can only be played
back on DVD players that are compatible with
CPRM.
After recording, you must finalize the disc in order
to play on other units. (Refer to page 40.)
Connections
You cannot record copy-protected discs or tapes
using this unit. Copy-protected material includes
DVD-Video discs and some satellite broadcasts.
If copy-protected material is encountered during a
recording, recording will be paused or stop automatically and an error message will be displayed
onscreen.
Material that is “copy-once only” can only be
recorded using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with
CPRM (see below).
When recording a TV broadcast or through an
external input, you can display copy control information on screen.
