Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall

and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.

recorder for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the recorder from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord (mains lead), grasp the
plug itself; never pull the cord.
On placement
• Place the recorder in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent heat
build-up in the recorder.
• Do not place the recorder on a soft
surface such as a rug that might

inclined position. It is designed to
be operated in a horizontal
position only.
• Keep the recorder and discs away
from equipment with strong
magnets, such as microwave
ovens, or large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
recorder.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do

Erasing and Editing
You can utilize disc capacity by erasing Video
mode or original titles. The effect differs
depending on the disc type and location of the title,
as follows.
Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc and title types. Before you edit, check
these types and select an available option.
Disc type
To open up disc space
DVD+RW
Erase the last title on the disc. You
can erase and overwrite titles other
than the last one; however, the
display will not show the resulting
capacity increase. Erased titles are
shown as deleted in the Title List
menu.
DVD-RW
(VR mode)
Erase original titles anywhere on
the disc.
b Notes
• You may lose edited contents if you remove the disc
while editing.
• Finish editing and recording before finalising. No more
editing or recording can be made on a finalised disc.
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
DVD-RW

For Video mode titles on DVD+RWs/DVD-RWs
(Video mode)/DVD+Rs/ DVD-Rs, and original
titles on DVD-RWs (VR mode), the recorder edits
actual recordings on the disc. You cannot undo
any edits you make, and the original contents will
be consequently lost.
z Hint
When using a DVD-RW (VR mode), you can keep the
original contents by editing a Playlist (see “Edits for
Playlist titles” below).
DVD+R/
DVD-R
You cannot increase the disc
capacity, as they are nonrewritable.
b Note
For DVD+RWs and DVD-RWs (VR mode), the disc’s
available capacity may not display correctly. The
recorder displays only the available capacity after the last
title on the disc.
Edits for Playlist titles
-RWVR
For DVD-RWs (VR mode), you can edit a Playlist
while retaining original titles (actual recordings on
the disc). A Playlist is a group of Playlist titles
created from the original title for editing purposes.
When you create a Playlist, only the control
information necessary for playback, such as the
playback order, is stored on the disc. Since the
original titles are left unaltered, Playlist titles can
be re-edited.
Example: You have recorded the final few
matches of a football tournament on a DVD-RW
(VR mode). You want to create a digest with the
goal scenes and other highlights, but you also want
to keep the original recording.
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com Sherwood Manuals
54
In this case, you can select a title or chapter and
create a Playlist title. You can even rearrange the
scene order within the Playlist title (page 61).
z Hint
For DVD-RW (VR mode), you can display the
disc’s Playlist titles in Title List (Playlist), or the
original titles in Title List (Original). Press TITLE
LIST repeatedly to switch the two Title List
menus.
Erasing and Editing Titles
This section explains the basic edit functions
common to Video mode titles, original titles, and
Playlist titles.
Note that editing on Video mode and original titles
is irreversible as they are the actual recordings on
the disc. If you want to edit a DVD-RW (VR
mode) while retaining the original contents, create
and edit a Playlist (page 60).

DV Dubbing
Before DV Dubbing
This section explains dubbing with a digital video
camera via the DV IN jack on the front panel. If
you want to dub by way of the LINE IN jacks, see
“Recording From Connected Equipment” (page
43).
To record from the DV IN jack
The DV IN jack on this recorder conforms to the
i.LINK standard. You can connect any other
equipment that has an i.LINK (DV) jack, and
record digital signals.
Follow the instructions in “Connecting a Digital
Video Camera to the DV IN Jack,” and then move
on to the section on dubbing. For more
information about i.LINK, see “About i.LINK”
(page 86).
z Hint
If you plan to do additional editing on a disc after the
initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW
(VR mode).
Connecting a Digital Video
Camera to the DV IN Jack
You can connect a digital video camera to the DV
IN jack on the recorder to record or edit from a
DV/Digital8 format tape. Operation is
straightforward because the recorder will fast
forward and rewind the tape for you – you do not
need to operate your digital video camera. Do the
following to start using the “DV Edit” functions of
this recorder.
See also the instruction manual supplied with the
digital video camera before connecting.
b Notes
• The DV IN jack is for input only. It will not output
signals.
• You cannot use the DV IN jack when:
– your digital video camera does not work with this
recorder. Connect the camera to the LINE IN jack
and follow the instructions of “Recording From
Connected Equipment” (page 43).
– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not
connect a MICRO MV format digital video camera
even if it has an i.LINK jack.
– the images on the tape contain copy protection
signals, which limit recording.
• If you want to play the disc on other DVD equipment,
finalise the disc (page 35).
• The recorder does not support HDV mode.

• If you record from a DV/Digital8 format tape with a
sound track that is recorded in multiple sampling
frequencies (48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 32 kHz), no sound or
an unnatural sound will be output when playing back
the sampling frequency switch point on the disc.
• The recorded picture may be momentarily affected if
the picture size of the source image changes, or if there
is nothing recorded on the tape.
• Noise may occur when you switch the audio sampling
mode (e.g.48 kHz/16 bits t 32 kHz/12 bits).
• The video or sound may drop out during the recording
of start/stop points on the tape.
• If there is a blank space for one second or more on the

Notes about the discs
Notes About This Recorder
On operation
• If the recorder is brought directly from a cold to
a warm location, or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense on the lenses
inside the recorder. Should this occur, the
recorder may not operate properly. In this case,
if the recorder is on, leave it on (if it is off, leave
it off) for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the recorder, take out any discs
to avoid damaging the disc.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a
section with very low level inputs or no audio
signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged
when a peak level section is played.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or
benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may
cause the recorder to malfunction.
• To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its
edge. Do not touch the surface. Dust,
fingerprints, or scratches on the disc may cause
it to malfunction.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as the temperature may
rise considerably inside the car.
• After playing, store the disc in its case.
• Clean the disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the
disc from the centre out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not use the following discs.
– A disc that has a non-standard shape (e.g.,
card, heart).
– A disc with a label or sticker on it.
– A disc that has cellophane tape or sticker
adhesive on it.
On replacement of parts
In the event that this unit is repaired, repaired parts
may be collected for reuse or recycling purposes.
