Basics of the CDR-HD1500
Understanding the basics will set you in the right direction before starting recording.
HDD Structure
Data recorded onto the HDD can be explained as follows.
■ Track and Group
Data is stored in two ways: Track and Group.
Track: Song data as its name implies. When you record song data, or
Tracks, they will be stored in a Group called “Disc.”
Group: There are three types: Disc, Album and Bookmark. All
contain Tracks.
A song can also be called a Track; A Group contains more than one
track.
■ Group Type
There are three types: Disc, Album and Bookmark.
Disc: Contains recorded Tracks (up to 99 Tracks). Up to 999 Disc
groups can be recorded on an HDD.
Album: A Group or a play list, made up of any combination of Tracks
on the HDD. The data in an Album is a “shortcut” to data held in a
Disc. If the Disc data is deleted, the Album data will also be removed.
Bookmark: A temporary Group of the Tracks you want to play
and/or to include in an Album. You can create more than one Album,
but as its name implies, you can hold only one Bookmark Group at a
time.
Album and Bookmark groups can help you arrange Tracks on the
HDD for playback of your favorite songs and copy them to a CD.

Recording onto the HDD and Creating Original CDs
This section explains how to create your own CDs by recording onto the HDD from an external
device.
There are three steps for this process:
Recording onto Hard Disk from an External Device
The following explanation uses LP recording as an example.
1
Connect the CDR-HD1500 to the turntable/amplifier as shown
in the illustration.
You can monitor the recorded sound on the amplifier by connecting
the LINE OUT jack on the CDR-HD1500 to an available input
jack on the amplifier. Also, you can monitor the recorded sound by
connecting headphones to the Headphone jack of the CDR-HD1500.

You cannot record LPs by directly
connecting the turntable to the
CDR-HD1500 without first
routing through an amplifier with a
PHONO input. If no such amplifier
is available, you will need a
“phono equalizer” to process the
signal to be recorded instead.
Phono equalizers are commonly
sold at audio hardware shops.

problematic since a pianissimo
section may be recognized as the
beginning of the next song. Other
sections, for the opposite reason,
may not receive track markers
correctly. You can adjust the
settings of Synchro Setup should
you experience difficulty with
automatic detection. If two tracks
are recognized as a single track, or
if a single track is recognized as
more than one, you can change this

Editing Recorded Tracks
You can solve any issues at the recording stage by editing and correcting recorded tracks. You can also
create your own Albums using editing functions, and create original CDs from Album/Disc groups.
Editing functions can be divided into the following three groups:
• Track Edit: Edits and corrects recorded tracks.
• Album Edit: Edits and creates an Album group to produce an original CD.
• Disc Edit: Edits a Disc group to produce an original CD.
Editing consists of the following two steps:
1. Editing and correcting recorded tracks > Track Edit
2. Editing to produce an original CD > Album Edit/Disc Edit
NOTE
The Undo function cancels the
last edit operation, and reverts
to the original status. For more
information, see page 70 in the
Owner’s Manual.
1. Editing and correcting recorded tracks
You can correct any issues at the recording stage using the Track Edit
function (p. 18).
The following is a possible scenario that requires editing:
1 Track 2 becomes blank because of an unintentional press of the TRACK NO.
WRITE button.
2 A 10-second silent portion is inserted at the beginning of track 3 because
recording was initiated too early.
3 Two tracks are accommodated in track 4 because of a failure in automatic

Copying HDD Tracks to CD-R/RWs
You can copy tracks to CD-R/RWs by copying tracks from Disc, Album or Bookmark groups.
Copying Recorded Tracks on the HDD to Music CD-R/RWs/
Finalizing Them
1
Set a music CD-R/RW onto the disc tray.
You need a blank “CD-R/CD-RW for music” for recording. You can
also use a partially-recorded (but not yet finalized) “CD-R/CD-RW
for music.”
“CD” appears in the bottom right side of the display. “Reading”
appears on the display, and which indicates that the Music CD is
being read by the device. After completion, the display changes as
illustrated below.
If you insert a new CD-R/CD-RW for Music:
NOTE
You may need to adjust the track
numbers of an Album so as not to
exceed the CD-R/RW’s recordable
time.
NOTE
Only music CD-R/RWs can
be used on the CDR-HD1500.
If you insert a CD-R/RW for
computer use (data CD), “Not
Audio” or “Data Track” will
appear in the display, followed by
“Unrecordable.”
For more information, see page 78
in the Owner’s Manual.

NOTE
Audio Master Quality Recording is a high quality recording mode used
to create an audio CD in the quality of the original. By minimizing the
jitter that subtly degrades audio quality during playback, Audio Master
Quality Recording achieves sound close to the original source. Set
A.M.Q.R. by pressing the A.M.Q.R. button 2 in CD-R copy standby
mode. The A.M.Q.R mark indicator appears in the display.
If you use the A.M.Q.R. function, the original data on the HDD will
disappear from the HDD and “move” onto the CD-R. This is called
“Digital Move.”
NOTE
26
“REC” lights up in the display, and the HDD mark starts blinking.
CD-R copy standby mode is now engaged.
The first press of the COPY button 1 selects HDD recording from
the internal CD-R, and the second press will select CD-R recording
from HDD.
■ About Audio Master Quality Recording (A.M.Q.R.)
Pressing the Stop button 7 in this
step aborts the operation and exits
the copy standby mode.
By using A.M.Q.R., Actual
recordable time will be shorter
than that printed on the CDR/RWs. Recordable time is
approximately 63 minutes on a
74-minute CD, and 68 minutes on
an 80-minute CD. This is because
meta-information like TOC (table
of contents) is also recorded.
Press the COPY button 1 twice.
3
If necessary, set the CD-R recording mode.
■ Setting the CD-R recording mode
You can select one of the following three modes:
All Synchro: copies all tracks to CD-R by synchronizing with the song
playback on the source HDD.
Full Auto: in addition to the operation done in Auto Synchro,
automatically finalizes the CD.
Multi Synchro*: copies only specified tracks to CD by synchronizing
with the song playback.
Select All Synchro, here.
1. Press the MODE button 4 during CD-R copy standby mode.
2. Press the Up/Down buttons 5 to display All Synchro.
3. Press the ENTER button 6 to select the mode.
NOTE
You can select other options when
recording a CD, such as digital/
analog copy methods, copy volume
level, and its copy speed. Getting
the message “Can’t Copy” when
you try to copy digitally recorded
data indicates that the data is
protected and cannot be copied
digitally according to SCMS
standards. In this case, you need to
change the copy method.
For information on SCMS, see
page 32.
* You can designate the number of tracks with Multi Synchro mode.
4
Press the Up/Down buttons 5 to select the Disc, Album or
Bookmark group you want to copy to CD.
5
Press the Playback button 8 to start recording.
The display shows the progress of the copy process.
“Wait” will momentarily appear in the display, and then the copy
operation will finish.
6
You can add more tracks by repeating steps 2-5 above, and
complete your CD.
7
(Set the CD you want to finalize in the disc tray, and) press
the FINALIZE button 3.
“Finalize OK?” appears in the display.
8
Press the Playback button 8 to start finalization.
“Finalizing” appears in the display and finalization is engaged.
When finalization is complete, the TOC mark appears in the display.
You can now play the CD on other CD players.
NOTE
Depending on CD condition,
“Wait” may appear, indicating that
the OPC* adjust function is active.
This takes about 10 seconds.
* Optimum Power Control
NOTE
In step 5, you cannot play back
the recorded CD on another CD
player. To make the disc playable
on other CD players, proceed to
step 6 to finalize the CD.
NOTE
Track(s) can only be recorded
to CD as a group. If you want
to record several tracks, use the
Bookmark function to bunch tracks
together to form a group, which
you can then record.
NOTE
If you select the Full Auto copy
mode, the CD will automatically
be finalized after recording. You
cannot add further tracks to a
finalized CD.
27
■ About Finalization
Making the CD you have created playable on other CD players requires it to be
‘finalized.’ A TOC (table of contents) is written on the CD during this finalization
process.
You cannot add further tracks to a finalized CD regardless of any recordable
space remaining on the CD-R.

Glossary
■ AAC
■ OPC
An audio compression system conforming to the MPEG
(Moving Picture Experts Group) movie standard, offering
good quality at a higher compression ratio than MP3
compression.
Abbreviation for ‘Optimum Power Control.’ The laser power
necessary used to write data varies depending on the CD-R/RW
selected. OPC allows the CDR-HD1500 to automatically adjust
laser power according to the CD-R/RW you use.
■ CD TEXT
■ PCM
Text information recorded onto a CD, such as title, artist
name, lyrics, etc. You need to use a CD player/CD-ROM
drive corresponding to CD TEXT format.
Abbreviation for ‘Pulse Code Modulation,’ which is an analogdigital converter system to change analog audio data to digital.
The PCM system is employed for music CDs (CD-DA).
■ Coaxial/Optical Digital Jacks
■ RS-232C
The digital input/output jacks. Any data input/output through
these jacks is free from degradation since the data sent
remains in the digital domain.
Coaxial/Optical connectors and cables differ physically, but
their function is the same.
A serial transmission connector standard to allow a PC to
connect to peripheral devices such as a printer, monitor,
scanner, etc. A null modem (cross wire RS-232C) cable is
required to connect your CDR-HD1500 to the PC.
■ Digital Move
■ S Video/Composite Video Signals
Moves digital data on the HDD to a CD. The digital data
is deleted from the source HDD, or “moved.” This makes
it possible to copy between two generations, from CD to
HDD, and HDD to CD-R/RW, which is otherwise prohibited
by SCMS.
S Video signals are transmitted with brightness (Y) signals
and chrominance signals separated. Composite video
signals, on the other hand, are transmitted with both signals
combined. Because its brightness and chrominance signals
are carried separately, S Video produces clearer images than
Composite video.
■ Emphasis
■ SCMS
A recording mode used to improve audio quality, which
boosts high frequencies during recording, and then reduces
them proportionately on playback, resulting in decreased
hiss.
Abbreviation for ‘Serial Copy Management System,’ which
prevents unlimited digital copies of commercial CDs,
allowing for ‘first generation’ copies only.
■ Format
Allows recording media like CD to be used on a specific
device, by conforming to the data writing system of the
device.
Before using an HDD, you will need to format it with your
CDR-HD1500.
■ Master and Slave
The main start-up disk for PC is called “Master,” while subdisks to be controlled are called “Slaves.”
The HDD connected to the CDR-HD1500 MUST be set to
“Slave.”
■ OSD (On Screen Display)
Shows the groups and/or tracks stored on the CDR-HD1500
on an externally-connected monitor for easier viewing.
For more information, see page 27 in the Owner’s Manual.
32
■ Sampling Frequency
To convert analog audio signals to digital, analog data
requires to be “digitized” periodically. This “digitization” is
called “sampling” and its frequency - the number of digital
‘bits’ per second - is called the “sampling frequency,” which
is measured in ‘Hertz’ (or simply ‘Hz’).
■ TOC
Acronym for ‘Table Of Contents,’ which contains a list of
the recorded tracks, session information, and CD-TEXT.
By loading the table of contents, a CD player can display a
CD’s playback time, etc., and access target tracks faster.
■ Track Marker
A separator, which separates two consecutive songs. A
player such as the CDR-HD1500 recognizes the song start
point by finding the track marker, which is also used for
Track Search and Intro Scan functions. You can create a
track marker on this unit either automatically or manually.
