Cautions on batteries
• Use R6P (AA) batteries in the remote control unit.
• The batteries should be replaced with new ones
after approximately one year, though this depends
on the frequency with which the remote control
unit is used.
• Even if the batteries are less than a year old,
replace them with new ones if the remote control
unit no longer operates even from a short distance
from the main unit.
• The included battery is only for verifying operation.
Replace it with a new battery as soon as possible.
• When inserting new batteries, wait about two
minutes after removing the old batteries before
inserting the new ones.
• Be sure to set the batteries in the proper “<” and
“>” directions, as indicated by the marks in the
remote control unit’s battery compartment.
• Remove the batteries when not using the remote
control unit for long periods of time.
• To avoid explosions and fluid leakage:
• Do not use one new battery with one old one.
• Do not use two different types of batteries.
• Do not short-circuit, disassemble, heat or dispose
of batteries in flames.
• If the battery fluid should leak, wipe all the fluid off
the battery compartment, then insert new batteries.
Press to switch group playback,
program setting/playback and
direct playback. Normally this is
set to the direct search mode.

• Point the remote control unit at the remote sensor as
shown on the diagram when operating it.
• When the DMD-M31 is connected in a system with the
D-M31 series, the remote control signals for all the
system components are received at the remote sensor
of the CD receiver (UD-M31/M51).
NOTES:
• The remote control unit may not operate if the
remote sensor is exposed to direct sunlight or strong
artificial light, or if there is an obstacle between it and
the remote sensor.
• The remote control unit can be used from a straight
distance of about 7 meters, but this distance will be
shorter if the there is an obstacle in the way or if the
remote control unit is not pointed directly at the remote
sensor.
• Use the remote control unit within a range of 30° to the
left and right of the remote sensor.
• Do not press buttons on the main unit and on the
remote control unit at the same time. Doing so will
result in malfunction.
7 NORMAL PLAYBACK
6 ABOUT MINIDISCS
2 MiniDiscs are compact in size and offer a maximum
playback/recording time of 80 minutes in the normal
mode and up to 320 minutes in the MDLP mode (longplay mode).
There are two types of MiniDiscs: those for playback
only, and those for recording and playback.
Recording on discs
MiniDiscs include a section in which the audio signals are
recorded and a section in which such data as track
numbers and track titles are recorded.
1. Starting playback
First try playing the tracks in order.

To avoid accidentally erasing the recording, open the tab so
that the hole is exposed. (See the diagram below.) When
this is done, “Protected” is displayed if you attempt to
record, erase or otherwise edit the disc, and the recording
is protected. To record or erase the disc, set the tab back

2 The TOC
With MiniDiscs, after the audio signals are recorded,
data used for checking the tracks (TOC — Table of
Contents) is also recorded on the disc. This TOC data
is used when playing the disc. In addition, editing is
performed by rewriting the TOC data.
The TOC is recorded in the following cases:
• When recording is stopped.
• When the MD is ejected.
• When the power button is pressed setting the unit to
the standby mode.
• When the 2 (stop) button is pressed in the stop mode.
When TOC writing starts, the “
” indicator flashes.
Do not shake the main unit or unplug the power supply
cord while the TOC is being written. If the data is not
recorded properly, it will not be possible to play the disc.

to worry about dirt and scratches. However, dirty or
warped cartridges may cause malfunction. Be careful
of the following to ensure long-lasting, high quality
sound:
• Do not touch the disc surface directly.
• Do not open the shutter by hand.
• Do not place MiniDiscs in dusty, dirty or humid places.
• Do not place MiniDiscs in places exposed to direct

• When recording on an already recorded disc, recording automatically starts from the end of the section last recorded.
When doing so, pay attention to the remaining time.
• To clear the entire content of the disc and record from the beginning, first erase the entire disc. (For instructions on
erasing the entire disc, refer to “ 13 Editing — (1) Erasing all tracks” on page 22.)
• To record on a disc, make sure the accidental erasure prevention tab is closed and the hole is covered.
• Use of the CD synchronized recording function (page 29) and the Synchronized recording function (page 29) will be
convenient when there is a system connection with the D-M31 Series.
• When recording without a system connection, the insertion of a blank (i.e., unrecorded) disc or a no-track disc (i.e., a
disc with only the disc name recorded) will result in the unit automatically entering the record pause mode which will
make analog recording Step 7 and digital recording Step 6 unnecessary. (The Auto Rec Pause function.)
The Auto Rec Pause function will also be activated when the power is switched on while one of these discs is in the

NOTES:
• When performing digital recording of CDs or MiniDiscs, the track numbers are recorded automatically. (Depending
on the recorded content on the CD or MiniDisc and on the type of CD player, the track numbers may differ from
those on the original CD or MiniDisc.)
• When recording on CDs or MiniDiscs, track numbers may be incremented by 1. If this happens, erase the
unnecessary track numbers. (See pages 21~23.)
• When recording DATs digitally, track numbers are automatically added when soundless sections are detected.
• Use analog recording to record sources that cannot be recorded digitally.
• During digital recording from CDs or MiniDiscs, the track number may not change if the same track is
programmed twice in a row or if the single track repeat mode is set.
• Monaural recording is not possible on this recorder.
• It is not possible to make digital recordings of MiniDiscs which have already been recorded digitally. This unit
includes a serial copy management system (SCMS). This system limits reproduction of digital signals on digital
audio devices to “one generation”. Use analog recording to record MiniDiscs originally recorded digitally.

NOTES:
• “LP:” serves as an indicator notifying you that the track cannot be played on players that are not MDLP
compatible. “LP:” is not displayed when the track is played on an MDLP compatible player.
• When the LP stamp function is set to “On”, the “LP:” stamp is recorded as part of the track name, so the
number of characters that can be input per MD decreases. In addition, if the track is split using the divide function,
the “LP:” stamp is also added to the second of the split tracks.
2 A group function is a function operating a new function that performs group management of tracks recorded on an
MD.
2 Use of the MDLP (MD Long Play) format support on this unit allows stereo recording that is two times or four times
as long as the regular recording time. (This is MDLP recording.) Although it is now possible to record more tracks
than in the past, finding the track when it comes time to play is a difficult job. To this end, the recorded tracks have
been divided into groups so that playback and searches can be performed easily.
2 The group functions of this unit provide operations such as those described below.
1. Creation of groups
• Continuous, multiple tracks that have been stored on the MD disc are registered as a group and the group is
created.
• A maximum of 99 groups can be registered to one MD with this unit.
• Modification of the group registration can be performed after storage.
2. Playing of desired groups
• 1Group Mode : a function for playing one group.
• Group Program : a function for programmed play of registered groups.
3. Changing the tracks within a group and cancellation of groups
• The tracks registered to a group can be deleted, divided, combined, and moved.
• Groups can be canceled and deleted.
4. Adding and changing group titles
• A group name can be added to a registered group.
• The group name of a registered group can be changed.
• This unit allows a total of 100 characters to be entered for a group name.
NOTES:
2 Editing with a unit that is not equipped with group functions
Do not use a unit that is not equipped with group functions to delete single tracks, move tracks, or perform other
editing on a disc on which groups are registered.
2 Display of group information with a unit that is not equipped with group functions
Group information is actually written to a disc name information storage area. It is for this reason that, when the
disc title is displayed with a unit that is not equipped with group functions, displays such as the following will
appear, but this is not a fault.
0; Disc Name // 1-5; Group Name 1 // 6-9; Group Name 2 //...
2 Limitations of this unit's group functions
A maximum of 99 groups can be handled by this unit.
A total of 100 characters can be entered for a group name.
The groups of an MD disc that exceeds these limitations, or groups without track number registration will not be
recognized as groups.
When this unit is used for editing, information that exceeds the limitations of this unit will be deleted.

17 SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
The recording method used on MiniDisc (MD) systems is different from conventional recording methods. Because of this,
there are several system limitations.
Note that the following are not malfunctions.
1. Track number limitations
• Up to 255 tracks can be recorded on blank discs or discs with no tracks on them when the tracks are recorded in
order starting from track 1. If a disc has been edited repeatedly, however, it may not be possible to record 255
tracks on the disc.
2. Recording limitations
• If 255 tracks are already recorded on the disc, no further recording is possible, even if the recorded time is less
than the maximum recordable time.
• Recording is performed in units of about 2 seconds. About 2 seconds of disc space is used even if the section is
less than 2 seconds long. Thus, the actual recordable time becomes shorter.
• If there are scratches on the disc, recording is not possible in the scratched sections, and the recordable time
decreases accordingly.
(“Defect” is displayed during recording and the number of tracks on the MiniDisc is automatically increased.)
• When digitally recording CDs, depending on the recording on the CD blank sections of several seconds may be
created and the number of tracks may differ from the number on the original CD.
• When the analog A.T.M. function is on and track numbers are added automatically, the track numbers may not be
added properly, depending on the original recording.
• In some cases, the remaining time may not decrease when short tracks are erased. This is because sections of 12
seconds and less are ignored when displaying the remaining time on the MD.
3. Editing limitations
30
• In some cases it is not possible to combine short tracks created through editing.
• There may be breaks in the sound during manual search on MiniDiscs which have been recorded or edited repeatedly.
