2 CAUTIONS DURING USE
• During track selection, during search and when the recorder
sustains a strong impact, the disc’s rotational speed
changes greatly, causing a small noise to be emitted. This is
not a malfunction of the recorder.
• If the CD recorder is operated while an FM or AM broadcast
is being received, there may be noise in the FM or AM
reception. Please switch the power to the CD recorder off at
such times.
• The DN-C550R has a broad dynamic range. Please exercise
caution when turning up the volume on the amplifier in
cases when the playback volume is low. If the volume is
turned up too high, it could damage the speakers.
• Placing this recorder or its connection cords near a TV or
other audio device could cause a humming sound to be
emitted. If this occurs, relocate the recorder or reroute the
connection cords.
• Be sure to remove the disc from the recorder before moving
it. The disc could be damaged if left in the recorder while it
is being moved.
• Do not place any object in the tray in the position where the
disc is loaded, or open and close the tray with anything
inside. Foreign objects in the tray could damage the play
mechanism.
• Do not move the recorder from a cold place to a warm place
suddenly. If the recorder is cold when brought into a warm
room, condensation could form, preventing proper operation
of the recorder. If condensation does form on the recorder
when it is brought into a warm room, wait at least 30
minutes before use.

✽ Recording will not be possible with discs that do not bear
the aforementioned marks.
CD-R Discs
• CD-R discs incorporate a pigment layer for recording.
When exposed to the recording laser, a change in form
occurs at the boundary of this layer and the plastic layer
resulting in the recording of the signal. The recorded
information is maintained until the end of the life of the
disc.
• After recording, finalized discs can be played on ordinary
CD players.
2 CD-RW Discs
• CD-RW discs incorporate a phase change layer. The
recording process causes this layer to change from a
crystal (reflective) condition to an amorphous (noncrystal) condition.
• Recorded information can be erased from CD-RW discs.
Deletion can take the form of deleting all of the disc
tracks or only the specified tracks working back from the
last track of the disc.
• Finalized CD-RW discs can be played on CD players
designed for use with CD-RW discs as well as on CD
recorders.

4 DISC HANDLING AND PRECAUTIONS
Track Numbers: Auto Track Function
Disc Handling
★ Recording in the Synchro-recording mode (e.g., disc Synchro-recording, track Synchro-recording, and auto finalization recording)
results in the track numbers being automatically associated. The manner in which the track numbers are associated will differ as
follows for digital recording and for analog recording depending on the conditions.
2
Recording from a digital input
• When performing digital recording of a CD, track numbers are
updated when the first sound is detected after the track switches.
• When making a digital recording from a MD, a track number that is
the same as the original track number will automatically be
associated.
• When recording from a DAT, track numbers are given when track
switching is detected using the start IDs.
• When recording from a satellite broadcasts or other digital
equipment, the detection of a blank portion of about 3 seconds or
longer, the same as when making recordings with an analog input,
will result in the operation of the auto track function and the
automatic association of the track number.
• The track number might not switch correctly when there is a lot of
noise in the blank portion between tracks.
• The track number might change when the signal level is very low
within the track.

The included remote control unit (RC-278) can be used to operate the DN-C550R from a distance.
Names and Functions of Remote Control Unit Buttons
2 Buttons not explained here function in the same way as the corresponding buttons on the main unit.
2 Buttons marked “✽” function regardless of the function selector switch.
Inserting the batteries
✽
q Remove the remote control unit’s back lid.
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.
w Insert the two R6P (AA) batteries in the battery
compartment, in the direction indicated by the marks inside
the compartment.
e Put the back lid back on.

NOTES:
• Digital copying may not be possible due to SCMS restrictions if “SCMS ENA” is set at “Copy management” in the setup
mode. In this case, copying is automatically performed at normal speed and using analog signals. (See page 6.)
• Analog signal copying is always performed in the normal speed mode.
• If when the copying mode is set the recordable time on the CD-R/RW is shorter than the time of the CD source you are
trying to copy, “CD-R Short” is displayed and both the CD and CD-R units are set to the stop mode. If this happens,
check the disc’s recordable time. (However, when recording track numbers 21 or higher from a source CD containing
over 20 tracks, “CD-R Short” may not be displayed even if the source time you want to record is longer than the
recordable time on the CD-R/RW.)
• If the disc name has already been input on the disc on which you are recording, only the track names are copied.
• For some CDs, the text cannot be copied because of copyright protection. In this case “Text Protect” is
displayed.
• Do not turn off the power or unplug the power cord while “Now PMA Rec” is displayed after recording is completed.
Doing so may render the disc unusable.
