REC E.O.M. tally
The “Relay Red Mode” is set when anything but “OFF” is selected for “Preset RelayRec” 19).
When a disc is loaded, the REC monitor mode is set automatically.
Once recording on the first DN-M991R (DN-M991R-1) starts and the disc’s remaining recording time reaches the time specified with the
presettings, an REC E.O.M. tally is output and recording starts on DN-M991R-2.
Thus, it is possible to record continuously on multiple DN-M991R’s.
NOTE: The REC E.O.M. tally is output even if an error occurs on the recording component and the component stops.
2. SERIAL REMOTE
When using this unit connected to a controller or personal computer, connect the remote connector (RS-232C/RS-422A) to the controller using a
9-pin D-sub cable.
(1) When using the serial remote with a bus connection.
q Set the preset “Player ID” to “0 to 15”. (For the operation, see Page 13.)

3 ABOUT MINIDISCS
2
MiniDiscs allow a maximum of 74 minutes (stereo) of recording and
playback in a compact size.
There are two types of MiniDiscs: those for playback only, and those
for recording and playback.
Playback only MiniDiscs
• These discs are for playback only. Commercially
available music MDs are of this type.
• These are laser discs, like regular compact discs.
• Tracks on such discs cannot be edited.
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.
Section in which track
numbers and track titles
are recorded (TOC)
2
Recordable MiniDiscs
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.
When TOC writing starts, the “ TOC ” indicator flashes. Do not
shake the main unit, press the main unit’s power button or unplug
the power cord while the TOC is being written. If the data is not
recorded properly, it will not be possible to play the disc.
• These are magneto-optical discs on which both
recording and playback are possible. Recording
is performed through magnetic modulation.
• Re-recording is also possible.
Accidental erasure prevention tabs
These tabs protect recordable MiniDiscs from accidental erasure.
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 to its original position (with the hole covered).
Section in which audio
signals are recorded
2
Hole exposed
•
•
•
•
Handling MiniDiscs
MiniDiscs are housed in cartridges, so there is no need 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 sunlight or high
temperatures.
Cleaning
Use a dry cloth to gently wipe dirt or dust off the cartridge. Do not
apply excessive force.

• Turn on the power. To record from the analog input, it is
recommended to turn on the power at least 5 minutes before
starting to record. This eliminates fluctuations of the A/D
converter DC offset, reduces the amount of DC offset at the
recording start position, in the middle of the recording and at
the recording end position, and keeps the DC offset constant.
DC offset hinders the auto cue function for detecting the point
where the sound starts at low levels and the auto track
increment function which detects soundless sections.
• Load a recordable disc. There are 60-minute and 74-minute
recordable discs. For a description of recordable discs, see the
section “Method of Recording on Discs” below. It is not
possible to record on discs which are already recorded and
have little free space left or on playback only discs.

(10) Pre-UTOC Function
• Presettings must be set. (Refer to Page 15.)
This function protects the recording should the power supply be
cut off. The UTOC is written directly after recording starts.
(The pre-UTOC is written.)
Normally the UTOC is written after recording is completed, so if
the power supply should be cut off during the recording or directly
after the recording is finished, the recording will not be registered
on the disc. To prevent this, the pre-UTOC (*1) is registered on
the disc directly after recording starts. Once recording is
completed normally, the actual UTOC (*2) is written. If the power
should be cut before the actual UTOC is written, the disc can be
played according to the pre-UTOC. This way you never
accidentally lose recordings that cannot be made over again.

interrupted in track 03 on the above diagram to divide the track,
then use the erase function to erase track 04.

8 EDITING FUNCTIONS
(1) Editing Functions
There are nine editing functions possible on MDs, as described
below. Here we describe these functions briefly.
i Disc name/Track name function
Disc names or track names can be stored on recorded discs.
The disc names and track names can be called out on the
display using the display function.
q Cue erase function (erasing cue signals)
Cue signals (external control signals) recorded on the disc can
be erased without affecting the tracks.
o Undo functions (for undoing the editing)
Even after editing is completed, the editing can be undone as
long as the UTOC has not yet been written.
There are three types of undo functions:
1) UNDO: For undoing the last editing operation.
2) REDO: For resetting the editing undone with the undo
function.
3) FIRST: For undoing all the editing operations.
w Track erase function (for erasing specific tracks)
An entire track, from beginning to end, can be erased
instantaneously simply by operating buttons. Unlike tapes,
there is no need to record over, erase, or cut the tape.

10 RESETTING THE MICROPROCESSOR
• A microprocessor controls disc drive unit, operation panel unit and the display.
• If for some reason the microprocessor should malfunction and the unit becomes inoperable, press the SELECT knob and the STANDBY/CUE
button at the same time to reset the microprocessor.
• When the microprocessor is reset, operation is restored to the same status as when the POWER switch is first turned on.
11 HANDLING CARTRIDGES
Discs are stored inside cartridges, so they can be handled easily without worrying about dust or fingerprints. Be careful of the following in order to
keep recordings in optimum condition.
(1) Cautions on Handling
• Keep cartridges away from magnets and sources of strong
magnetic forces. (Only for recordable discs)
• Put cartridges in their cases when carrying them.
• Do not apply labels other than the ones included when the
discs are purchased.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe any dirt off the surface of the
cartridge.
• Do not open the shutter.
Forcing the shutter open could break it.
If the shutter is opened, dirt or dust may get inside and
fingerprints may get on the disc.
• Do not bend, heat or throw cartridges.
• Water droplets may form on the surface if cartridges are moved
suddenly from outside or any cold place to a warm place. If this
happens, wait awhile before using them.
38
(2) Cautions on Storing
• Always remove cartridges from the set after recording or playing
them.
• Do not put cartridges in the following places:
• Places exposed to direct sunlight.
• Hot places.
• Humid or dusty places.

ENGLISH
13 SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
(1) Track Number Limits
• Up to 255 tracks can be recorded when recording the tracks
successively starting from the first track on blank or no-track
discs. In the following cases, however, the number of tracks
that can be recorded decreases:
When editing has been performed.
When there are scratches on the disc and tracks have been
re-recorded.
• When a track with a track name is divided, both of the divided
tracks are given the same name. However, if the number of
characters writeable on the disc is near the limit, the second
track may only have part of the track name.
• When two tracks with track names are combined, the name of
the second track is erased.
(5) Other Limits
(2) Recording Time Limits
• Recording is performed in units of approximately 2 seconds.
Sections of less than 2 seconds still take up 2 seconds worth of
space on the disc, so this decreases the actual recordable time.
• Scratched sections of discs are automatically eliminated from
the recording time.
• Recording is no longer possible once the maximum number of
tracks is reached, even if they take up less than the maximum
recordable time. To record on such discs, first erase unneeded
tracks. When this is done, it is not possible to record for longer
than the time of the tracks that have been erased.
• The remaining time on the disc may not increase when short
tracks (less than approximately 8 seconds) are erased.
• If there are many emphasis data on/off signals or other similar
signals in a track, they are treated as divisions between tracks,
so recording will not be possible regardless of the recording
time and number of tracks.
• Track incrementing may not be possible if it is conducted
(automatically or manually) consecutively within less than 2
seconds.
(3) Editing Function Limits
• It may not be possible to combine a short track with another
track.
• Tracks containing cue points cannot be divided or combined.
(4) Title Function Limits
• There are limits to the number of characters that can be used in
disc and track names and to the total number of characters
used for both. When writing names, the cursor will only move
by the maximum number of writeable spaces. (after this no
more characters can be input.)
Track names:
Up to 100 characters
Disc names:
Up to 100 characters
Total:
Up to 1700 characters
• The number of characters that can be used in track names
decreases when the following functions are used:
Cue point function:
Using one point decreases the
number of characters that can be
used by 10.
Play speed function: Changing the play speed decreases
the number of characters that can be
used by 6.
CAUTION:
Because cue points are stored on the disc as name inputs, it
may not be possible to input names if many cue points are set
on discs with many tracks, and if many names are used it may
not be possible to store cue points.
40
• In the program play mode, the record mode is not set even
when the REC button is pressed.
If the REC button is pressed, “Now Program!” is displayed for
approximately 1 second, then turns off.
• In the program play mode, the editing mode is not set even
when the MODE button is pressed.
If the MODE button is pressed, “Now Program!” is displayed
for approximately 1 second, then turns off.
• In the editing mode and during hot start loading, the program
play mode is not set even when the PROGRAM ON/OFF
button is pressed.
• If the REC button is pressed while hot start data is loaded,
“Now H Start!” is displayed for 5 seconds. If the REC button is
pressed while “Now H Start!” is displayed, the recording pause
mode is set. (The hot start data is cleared.)
