DV40 main features
• Using a DVD-RAM disk as a recording media, you can directly record or play back audio
data. For recording, the Verify Write recording method, with which data is always verified,
is applied, allowing the highly reliable recording.
• The most popular "UDF format" is used for the DVD-RAM disk format. Audio data recorded
to a DVD-RAM disk is stored as an "SDII" or "BWF" file in an appropriate directory ("sd2f"
for an SDII file, "bwff" for a BWF file). Therefore, two kinds of audio files can share a single
disk.
• The "TAPE mode" is available, in which audio data currently being recorded is never lost
even if the unit is accidentally shut down by the power failure, etc. A very useful mode for
live recording, etc.
• Three track modes are available; mono track, stereo (2 tracks), and multitrack (4 tracks).
• The supporting sampling frequencies are 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz
and 192 kHz. In addition, the 0.1 % pull-up/pull-down function is available.
Note: You cannot record audio data of 88.2 kHz/4-track mode, 96 kHz/4-track mode, 176.4
kHz and 192 kHz.
• Non-destructive editing (copy, paste, insert, cut and erase) for track data is possible.
• Two recording modes, "NEW FILE mode" and "INSERT mode", are available. In the "INSERT
mode", you can undo recording to go back to the desired take by selecting the date/time
when the take is executed (multiple undo function).
• Equipped with four XLR analog inputs (24 bit/192 kHz A/D) and four sets of XLR and 1/4inch phone analog outputs (24 bit/192 kHz AD).
• Equipped with two sets of digital inputs/outputs (AES/EBU).
• Equipped with the WORD IN and VIDEO IN connectors, allowing synchronization to a word
or video signal.
• Equipped with a 15-pin remote connector which conforms to the Sony 9-pin protocol,
allowing the unit to be controlled by an editor.
• The chase mode function allows chase-sync to external LTC.
• Built in a time code generator which supports "24H RUN", "REC RUN", "FREE RUN" and "EXT
RUN" modes.
• Supports all kinds of time code frame rates, including "23.97" for tele-cine conversion.
• The "List play" function allows continuous playback of multiple audio files in order of file
number or LTC start time.
• The comprehensive locate function allows you to locate to any of various edit points and
memory locate points.
• Precision analog scrub using a jog dial is possible.
• A PS/2 keyboard can be used for file name/label name editing.
• You can transfer an audio file on TCP/IP between the DV40 and a personal computer by
using the ETHER card as an FTP server.
• You can record a blank space or slate tone manually, or automatically by setting the
desired time range in the Setup menu.
• The file management on a VGA monitor, a waveform editing using a PS/2 keyboard,
playback of a DVD Audio disc, etc. are planned to be available by version-up or adding an
option in the future.

Flashing
You can format the disk by the following procedure in the next page.
1-4
Formatting a DVD-RAM disk
To make a DVD-RAM disk usable with the DV40, format the disk by the “UDF format”.
Two format modes, “Normal” and “Tape”, are available with this unit. Use either format
according to the situation.
<About UDF format>
The DV40 formats a disk in the UDF “R1.50” format. It can read a disk formatted in the “R1.50” or “R2.0*”
format using a personal computer without any difficulty. Note that MAC OS 9.1 supports the “R1.50” format but
does not support the “R2.0*” format. Therefore, a Macintosh computer running on MAC OS 9.1 cannot read a
disk formatted in the “R2.0*” format using a Windows 98 computer. To ensure the compatibility among the
DV40 and computers, we recommend to format a disk in the “R1.5” format if you have a Windows 98 computer.
Normal Mode
Tape Mode
Normally, format a disk by selecting the format mode
to Normal. No audio file is automatically created when
formatting the disk in the Normal mode ("No Audio
Files!" is shown after formatting is completed).
On a "Normal format" disk, a "Normal mode" audio
file ("BWF" or "SDII") is automatically created when
executing recording in the NEW FILE mode.
Or you can also create "Normal mode" audio files using the file select function before recording. Up to 200
audio files can be created.
Two “Tape mode” audio files (“BWF” or “SDII”) of approximately 2 GB each are automatically created on a
disk when formatting the disk in the Tape mode.
Like an analog tape, a “Tape mode” audio file has the
fixed available space, and can playback recorded data
even if the system unexpectedly shuts down during
recording and the system data is destroyed. Therefore, a “Tape mode” audio file is suitable for live recording or preserving recorded data for a long period
of time.
A disk formatted in the Tape mode reserves the “Normal mode” area (approx. 0.7GB) in addition to the “Tape
mode” area (2GB + 2GB = 4GB). In the Normal mode area, you can create “Normal mode” audio files (“BWF” or
“SDII”). See “About audio files on a formatted disk” on page 1-7 for details.
<Tips for using a disk formatted in the Tape mode effectively>
The following shows tips for using a disk formatted in the Tape mode effectively.
• If a 2GB “Tape mode” file is too large for you to handle, we recommended to create a “Normal mode” file and
copy & paste the necessary data on the “Tape mode” file to it. This is allows you to handle data, originally
recorded on the “Tape mode” file, on a small file.
• If the 0.7GB “Normal mode” area on a “Tape mode” file is too small, delete one of the “Tape mode” files and
optimize the disk. This increases the “Normal mode” area to 2.7GB.
<Notes for formatting a disk in the Tape mode>
When a disk is formatted in the Tape mode, an audio file is automatically created. Therefore, before formatting,
you must set the AUDIO FILE, TR MODE and SAMPLING FREQ switches on the front panel appropriately. Note that
you cannot change the settings after formatting.)
When formatting a disk in the Normal mode, you do not need to set these switches. However, you must set them
appropriately when making recording in the NEW FILE mode or creating a new audio file using the file select
function.
1. While "Format" with flashing "?" is shown on the display, press the [ENTER/YES] key.
The display changes to show "Format Disk DVD" (in which "DVD" is flashing).
Flashing
2. Press the [ENTER/YES] key again.
The display changes to show "Label [DV40-DVD" (in which "D" of "DV40" is flashing).
This shows the label name of the disk can be edited and "DV40-DVD" is the tentative name.
See the following Tips for details about how to enter a desired label name. Of course, you may use
the tentative name when formatting. (You can also rename the tentative name in the Utility mode
described later.)
Flashing
1-5
Tips: How to enter a desired label name
Press the [MARGIN RESET/CLR] key repeatedly until the tentative name currently shown is erased.
By using the Jog dial (or using the appropriate numeric key), you can enter the desired character at the
editing point (flashing point). You can move the editing point by pressing [SKIP/CURSOR] I<</>>I key after
entering a character.
3. After entering a volume name, press the [ENTER/YES] key.
The display changes to show "Format Md?" with flashing "Norm".
You can select the format mode between "Norm" (Normal) and "Tape" using the jog dial.
Flashing
4. Select the format mode and press the [ENTER/YES] key.
If you select "Norm", the display shows "If enter key is pushed, will start formatting and delete DVD area data.
Are you sure?". If you are sure, proceed to the next step.
Flashing
If you select "Normal", go to the next step after the message above is shown.
When selecting "Tape", select "New" or "Used" using the jog dial, and then press the [ENTER/YES] key.
Go to the next step after the same message as above (shown when selecting “Norm”) is shown.
<Note>
• When formatting a used disk in the Tape mode, select "Used". If you select "New", the existing
data may not be erased, with the result that a noise may generated when playing back the disk
or a recording error may occur when a new recording is made.
• If you format a disk in the Tape mode with "Disk Type" set to "used", it takes some time for
formatting because the audio data area is also formatted. The display counts down the
unformatted area.
Because each of two “Tape mode” audio files reserves approximately 2GB of recording space,
the countdown of REMAIN starts from approximately 4GB.
5. Press the [ENTER/YES] key.
If you set the disk type to "New", regardless of the format mode ("Norm" or "Tape"), the formatting
is completed quickly and "Fmt Completed!" is shown, followed by the screens as below depending on
the formatting mode.

About audio files on a formatted disk
As described earlier, two format modes, Normal and Tape, are available with this unit, and in result, there
are two audio file types; "Normal mode" file and "Tape mode" file.
In short, a "Normal mode" file is a typical disk recorder file that can be edited comprehensively, while
a "Tape mode" file is more straightforward and you may regard it as a tape-like file.
The following describes detail information about disks formatted in Normal and Tape modes.
•A disk formatted in the "Normal" format mode
As described earlier in “Formatting a DVD-RAM disk”, the display shows “No Audio Files!” when formatted in the “Normal” format mode, showing that no audio file is created on the disk.

To create a “Normal mode” audio file on a disk formatted in the “Normal” format mode, perform
recording in the NEW FILE mode or use the file select function.
Performing recording in the NEW FILE mode creates an audio file automatically, while the file select
function allows to create an audio file before preforming recording.
You can create audio files of two formats, BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) and SDII (Sound Designer II),
decided by the setting of the [AUDIO FILE] switch on the front panel.
A created file is stored in either of two directories, “bwff” for BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) and “sd2f”
for SDII (Sound Designer II) files.
You can create up to 200 audio files on a disk formatted in the “Normal” mode.

<Notes>
On a disk formatted in the “Normal” mode, the maximum recording space for each audio file is
approximately 2.0GB (the maximum recording time differs depending on the track mode, Fs and bit
length). If a file exceeds the maximum recording space during recording, the unit automatically
stops recording, while showing “File Size Over!” on the display.
Up to 200 audio files can be created on a disk, however, if the available space on the disk is short, the
number of audio files are limited.
For example, if there are two audio files each of which occupies 2.0GB disk space, the remaining
space is approximately 0.7GB.
If you create another audio file which occupies 0.7GB, you cannot create an audio file anymore. If
you try to make recording in the NEW FILE mode or to create an audio file using the file select
function, “Disk Full!” is shown on the display and the operation is rejected.
1-7
•A disk formatted in the "Tape" format mode
Two “Tape mode” audio files (“BWF” or “SDII”) of approximately 2 GB size are created on a disk formatted
in the “Tape” format mode.
A created file are stored in either of two directories, “bwff” for BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) and “sd2f”
(Sound Designer II) files, according to the [AUDIO FILE], [TR MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switch settings.
The two “Tape mode” audio files are more tape-like, so you may regard as if there were two analog tapes
on a disk. If an accident, such as a sudden power failure or shutdown of the unit, may happens during
recording, data on a “Tape mode” audio file recorded before the accident happens will survive (while,
in the same situation, all data on a “Normal mode” audio file will be lost).

<About the time display>
After completing formatting, the time of an audio file is shown in the LTC mode with one-hour offset to ABS 0
(LTC 01H: 00M: 00S: 00F). You can switch it to the ABS mode by pressing the [DISP TIME] key as many times as
required.
On a disk formatted in the “Tape” mode, two 2GB “Tape mode” files are automatically created, and no
more “Tape mode” audio file can be created.
Note that you can make recording to a “Tape mode” audio file only in the INSERT mode.
You can use the approximately 0.7GB remaining area on a disk formatted in the Tape mode as the
“Normal mode” area, to create “Normal mode” audio files (“BWF” or “SDII”). “Normal mode” audio files
are stored in the appropriate directories as shown in the figure below.
<Note>
When first time creating a “Normal mode” audio file in the “Normal mode” area (of approximately 0.7GB size) on
a disk formatted in the Tape mode, use the file select function (See 4-12 for details).
However, if any “Normal mode” audio file created is selected, you can create a new audio file by making recording in the NEW FILE mode.

About REMAIN display
You can check the remaining (recordable) time/space by selecting the appropriate display using the
[DISP TIME] key. The unit can show the remaining time and space that can be used for "Normal mode"
files, regardless of whether the disk is formatted in the "Normal" or "Tape" mode.
• If a disk is formatted in the Normal mode
1. While a disk is stopped and the display shows "No Audio Files!", press the [DISP TIME] key three
times.
The display shows the "FreeArea" screen, in which the recordable space (in MB) and time (in hours/minutes/
seconds) for files with the current [TRACK MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switch settings are shown.
The screen example on the right below shows the recordable time and space when the disk is formatted with the
[TR MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switch settings to "MONO" and "44.1 kHz/24 bit" respectively.

• If a disk is formatted in the Tape mode
1. While the "Tape mode" audio file is selected, press the [DISP TIME] key three times.
The display shows the “FreeArea” screen, as with a disk formatted in the Normal mode. In this screen, the
recordable space (in MB) and time (in hours/minutes/seconds) for “Normal mode” files, with the same track mode
and sampling frequency/bit length settings as when the disk is formatted, are shown. In other words, the
recordable space shown here is the value calculated by subtracting 4.0 GB from all recordable space of the disk.
The screen example on the right below shows the values when the disk is formatted by setting the [TR MODE] and
[SAMPLING FREQ] switches to “MONO” and “48kHz/24bit” respectively.
The recording time in mono is 47 minutes 30 seconds, while the available space is 0.4 GB.
Note that, with a disk formatted in the Tape mode, if you change the settings of the [TR MODE] and [SAMPLING
FREQ] switches, the values on the display may not be changed.

<Tips>
The recordable space of each “Tape mode” file is fixed to approximately 2.0 GB, which is not included in the Free
Area, as shown above. You can see the maximum recordable time of the “Tape mode” audio file by following the
operation below.
• While a disk is stopped, press the [F FWD] key while holding down the [STOP] key.
The current position moves to the end of the “tape”, and the maximum recordable time of a “Tape mode” file, with
the track mode and sampling frequency/bit length selected by the [TR MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switches
when formatted, is shown on the display.
You can calculate the remaining time of a “tape mode” file by subtracting the elapsed time from the maximum
recordable time.

Reformatting/optimizing a disk
This chapter describes how to reformat a formatted disk and optimize a disk.
Reformatting a DVD-RAM disk
The following describes how to reformat a used disk, while chapter 1 describes how to format
a new disk. We assume that a used DVD-RAM disk is inserted in the tray and stopped.
<Note for reformatting a disk in the Tape mode>
Before reformatting a used disk in the Tape mode, set the [AUDIO FILE], [SAMPLING FREQ] and [TR
MODE] switches on the front panel appropriately, which determine the behavior of the newly created "Tape mode" file.
<Note>
Memory point data still remain after reformatting a disk.
Therefore, if you do not need the old memory point data, delete them using the delete function.
See "Chapter 6: Editing/storing time data" for details about how to delete memory point data.
<Note>
• Before reformatting, make sure that the DVD-RAM disk is not write-protected.
• If you use an used DVD-RAM disk, we recommended to format the disk by a computer first, then
format it by the DV40.
1. While stopped, press the [SHIFT] key to turn on the indicator.
2. Press the [SETUP] key.
The unit enters the Utility mode and the display shows a setting menu.
The first time the unit enters the Utility mode after turning on the unit, the "Rec Protect?" menu is
shown. Otherwise, the previously used setting menu is shown.

When using the numeric keys, the editing point (flashing point) moves by pressing any of the
numeric keys after entering a character. When using the jog dial, you can move the editing point
by using the [SKIP/CURSOR] ([|<<] and [>>|]) keys.
5. Press the [ENTER/YES] key again.
The display changes to show "Format Md?" with flashing "Norm". You can select the format mode
between "Norm" (Normal) and "Tape" using the jog dial.

If you select “Normal”, go to the next step after the message above is shown.
When selecting “Tape”, select “New” or “Used” using the jog dial, and then press the [ENTER/YES] key.
Go to the next step after the same message as above (shown when selecting “Norm”) is shown.
<Note>
When a used disk previously formatted in the Tape mode is reformatted in the Tape mode by
selecting "New" for the disk type, the "Tape mode" file data is not erased (while "Normal mode" files
are erased).
Therefore, if you record a new material to the old "Tape mode" file, new and old materials may
exist together.
To erase all sound data when reformatting a disk in the Tape mode, make sure to select "Used" for
the disk type.
Tips: Special usage of "New"
In general, "New" for the disk type is selected when formatting a new DVD-RAM disk.
However, there is a special case. If you cannot playback a recorded "Tape mode" file for any
reason, reformat the disk in the Tape mode by selecting "New" for the disk type.
Audio data on the "Tape mode" file still remains after reformatting and can be played back correctly.
<Note>
All the "Normal mode" files on the disk are erased.

Chapter 4
Audio recording/playback
This chapter describes the basic audio recording/playback (for both analog and digital),
mute recording, slate tone recording, cueing by the jog/shuttle mode, etc.
• About the expression for audio files in this manual
As described in chapter 1, there are two types of audio file; "Normal mode" audio file and "Tape mode" audio
file. "Tape mode" audio file is rather special and can be created only when formatting. The following descriptions are mainly associated with a "Normal mode" audio file, therefore, a "Normal mode audio file" is sometimes referred to as "audio file" in this manual.
About the NEW FILE and INSERT mode
There are two recording modes; NEW FILE and INSERT modes.
• NEW FILE mode:
When performing recording in the NEW FILE mode, a new audio file is created automatically. The
recording is made from the beginning (ABS 0) of the new file, even if there is another audio file on the
disk.
• INSERT mode
By recording to an existing file in the INSERT mode, you can replace the current audio data with new
one or add new audio data to the current one. When recording to a “Tape mode” audio file, always use
the INSERT mode.
Recording/playback capabilities depending on the recording conditions (Fs/Bit/Track)
The table below shows the recording and playback capabilities depending on the recording conditions
(Fs, Bit length and the number of tracks) and the DVD-RAM disk capacity.

Recording an analog source in the NEW FILE mode
When performing recording in the NEW FILE mode, an audio file is newly created automatically and the recording is made from the beginning (ABS 0) of the new file. Note that you
cannot record to a "Tape mode" file or an existing "Normal mode" file in the NEW FILE mode.
In the following description, we assume that we are going to record an analog audio source in
stereo to a DVD-RAM disk just after formatted in the Normal mode.
<Note>
The first time you make recording to a disk just after formatted, the maximum recording size of
the audio file to be created is 2GB (the maximum recording time depends on the track mode and
Fs/bit settings). If the recording size exceeds 2GB during recording, the DV40 automatically stops
recording.
Preparation
Connection to external devices
1. Connect the external source outputs to the [TR 1] and [TR 2] connectors of the [ANALOG INPUT
BALANCED] section of the unit.
The connectors used varies depending on the track mode setting.
2. Select the Input level switches appropriately according to the source output level.
3. Connect a pair of monitor speakers with built-in amplifiers or an amplifier/speaker system to the [TR
1] and [TR 2] connectors of the [ANALOG OUTPUT] section of the unit.
Use either of BAL or UNBAL connectors according to the inputs of the monitor device.

controls to adjust the input levels of tracks 1 and 2.
See "Tips" below for details about the input level adjustment.
Even though you press the [INPUT MON] key to turn off the indicator after adjusting levels, the
monitor source automatically switches to the input source during recording.
From the "Auto EE MD?" menu in the Setup mode to "On" (which is defaulted to "Off"), you can set the
condition in which the input source can be monitored automatically. See "Chapter 15: Setup mode".
Tips: [BYPASS] switch
By setting the [BYPASS] switches beside the INPUT LEVEL controls to "ON", the INPUT LEVEL
controls are disabled.

Recording
1. Press the [RECORD] key.
"New File!" appears for a short time on the display and the unit starts recording on the newly created
file with the file format set in the procedure described in the previous "Preparation for recording".
A tentative title of the newly created audio file is automatically created and registered. The tentative
title contains date/time information. In the following example, the tentative title shows that the
recording started at 18H: 30M: 00S on 24th, December, 2001. The date/time is based on the internal
clock, which should be adjusted before using the unit. (See "Setting the internal clock" in Chapter 1
for details about how to set internal clock.)
You can edit the tentative title using the "Edit File Name?" menu in the Utility mode.

Tips: File number for a newly created file
Audio files automatically created are internally counted independently by "BWF" and "SDII" files.
For example, if you make recordings twice to a disk on which no audio file is available by setting the [AUDIO
FILE] switch to "BWF", two "BWF" files are created, whose file numbers are "001" and "002". Then if you make
a recording to this disk by setting the [AUDIO FILE] switch to "SDII", the file number of the newly created file
is "001". In result, two BWF files and one SDII file are created. A new file number is one greater than the
number of existing files of the same file format.
2. After recording, press the [STOP] key to stop the unit.
See the next page for details about how to playback a recorded audio file.
Tips: Recording level adjustment of analog audio signals
Each level meter on the display holds peak value of the corresponding input signal (see the display example
below).
The peak hold time is initially set to 3 seconds, however, you can select the time among from 0 to 9 seconds
in 1 second steps and infinity using the "Peak Hold?" menu in the Setup mode. See "Chapter 15: Setup mode"
for details.
You can also check the margin between the allowable maximum input level (= 0 dB) and the actual loudest
level. The margin value (in dB) is updated each time when the loudest signal is fed to the unit.
So you can use the margin display function instead of setting the peak hold time to infinity. You can reset the
current margin value by pressing the [MARGIN RESET/CLR] key.
Using the [DISP LEVEL] key, you can choose what is shown on the display among the margin level, track level
and time.

• Set the recording level with the [INPUT MON]
indicator lit.
• Adjust the recording level using the [INPUT
LEVEL] control so that the "OL" indicator does
not light at the loudest part of the signal (i.e.
the margin value is larger than 00.0 dB).
If the input signal is too high, it clips at the
full scale level.
Playback of recorded audio
To check the recorded audio file after recording, follow the procedure below.
1. While holding down the [STOP] key, press the [REWIND] key.
The unit immediately locates to the beginning of the audio file.
2. Press the [PLAY] key to start playback from the beginning of the audio file.
3. Monitor the playback audio via headphones or a monitor system.
If the analog outputs are connected to a mixing console, adjust the monitor level using the control of
the console. When the playback position reaches to the end of the audio file, the unit automatically
stops.
Tips:
After the audio file is recorded in the NEW FILE mode, you can overwrite the file or make recording following
the end of the file. See page 4-7 for details about the INSERT mode.
You can create an audio file before recording.
As explained earlier, when making recording in the NEW FILE mode, a new audio file is created on the
disk. Therefore, each time you make recording in the NEW FILE mode, the number of audio files increases by one. However, you can create a new audio file before making recording regardless of whether
"No Audio Files!" is shown or any audio file is already created. Note that you can only make recording to
the existing file in the INSERT mode described later. To create an audio files before making recording,
follow the procedure below.
1. Set the [AUDIO FILE], [TR MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switches to the desired positions.
<Note>
A new file will be created with the appropriate audio file format, track mode and sampling frequency/bit
length combination according to the switch settings.
2. Press the [FILE SEL] key.
• When "No Audio Files!" is shown (i.e. there is no audio file on the disk), pressing the key brings up
"New File?" with flashing "001" on the display.

3. Press the [ENTER/YES] key.
A new file is created and selected. The display shows the tentative title of the newly created file with
"LTC" time. You can make recording in the INSERT mode to an audio file created before recording.
You can also give a desired file title to the created file, or delete unnecessary files.
See "Chapter 9: Audio file management" for details.
<Note>
If you create a new audio file when one or more audio files are available, the file number is counted independently by "BWF" and "SDII" files. For example, if you create an "SDII" file to a disk on which three "BWF" audio
files are available, the file number of the created "SDII" file is "001".
Therefore, when selecting a desired audio file from among more than one file, you must set the [AUDIO FILE]
switch appropriately. See "Selecting a desired file on a disk" on page 4-9 for details.
4-6
Recording an analog source in the INSERT mode
In the INSERT mode, recording is made to an existing audio file. You can overwrite the file from the
beginning or in the middle of the file, as well as make recording following the end of the file.
In the following description, as with the earlier description in “Recording an analog source in the NEW FILE
mode”, we assume that we are going to record an external stereo analog audio source from the [ANALOG
INPUT - TR1] and [ANALOG INPUT - 2] connectors to a DVD-RAM disk loaded in the tray.
We also assume to perform recording from the end point of the current audio file.
Tips:
In the INSERT mode, recording is made to an existing audio file. Therefore, set the [AUDIO FILE], [TR
MODE] and [SAMPLING FREQ] switches to the appropriate positions that match the audio file.
If you set any of these switches inappropriately, the switch position name flashes on the display for
warning.

<Notes for performing the multiple-undo function>
• You cannot undo recording on a "Tape mode" audio file.
• The ending date/time of each take is memorized based on the internal clock, therefore, it is important to
adjust the date/time of the internal clock correctly.
• The unit keeps all takes on the disk in order to make the multiple-undo function for all takes of the current
audio file possible, therefore, the remaining disk space gets smaller each time you record another take.
To release the unnecessary take history (= undo file), use the “Release Undo File?” menu in the Utility mode.
See “Chapter 16: Utility mode” for details.
1. Press the [UNDO] key.
The display changes to show "Select History?", as below.

Selecting a desired file on a disk
When there is more than one audio file (regardless of "BWF" or "SDII") on a disk, you can select a desired
file using the file select function, or using the [SKIP/CURSOR] [I<<]/[>>I] keys if the “skip mode” menu is set
to “File”.
The following describes how to select an audio file using the file select function. See "Chapter 9: Audio file
management" for details about how to select an audio file in the skip mode.
The following assumes that there are five "BWF" and three "SDII" files on the disk.
Tips:
When setting a disk that contains both "BWF" and "SDII" audio files, the "001" file of the type ("BWF" and/or
"SDII") set by the AUDIO FILE switch is selected.
• To select a file of the same file type
Follow the procedure below.
1. Press the [FILE SEL] key while stopped.
The current file number starts flashing.
2. Rotate the jog dial to select a desired file number, and press the [ENTER/YES] key.
You can select from among files of the same file type. For example, if "001" of the five "BWF" files is
currently selected, you can select among "001" through "005", as well as flashing "New File?" which
appears by rotating the jog dial fully clockwise. As explained earlier, "New File?" should be selected
when you create a new audio file.
After selecting the desired file number, pressing the [ENTER/YES] key switches the current audio file
to the selected one, and the display shows the beginning of the file.
• To select a file of the different file type
Follow the procedure below.
1. Set the [AUDIO FILE] switch to the desired position.
For example, if you want to select an "SDII" file when a "BWF" file is currently selected, set the [AUDIO
FILE] switch to "SDII".
In the "FORMAT" section on the display, "BWF" is lit while "SDII" flashes.
2. Press the [FILE SEL] key while stopped.
The current file number starts flashing.
3. Rotate the jog dial to select a desired file number, and press the [ENTER/YES] key.
You can select from among files of the selected file type in step 1 above. For example, if selecting from
among "SDII" files, you can select among "001" through "003", as well as flashing "New File?" which
appears by rotating the jog dial fully clockwise. As explained earlier, "New File?" should be selected
when you create a new audio file.
After selecting the desired file number, pressing the [ENTER/YES] key switches the current audio file
to the selected one, and the display shows the beginning of the file.
<Note>
When selecting an audio file, the track mode or Fs/bit shown on the display may flashes. This shows that the
position of the [TR MODE] or [SAMPLING FREQ] switch does not match the selected file. In such a case, set the
switch appropriately to match the file.
Tips:
See "Chapter 9: Audio file management" for details about how to create, select, delete an audio file or how to edit
a file name.
4-9
Recording to a "Tape mode" audio file in the INSERT mode
You can record to a "Tape mode" audio file only in the INSERT mode.
If an accident may happens, such as a sudden power failure or shutdown of the unit, recorded data on
a "Tape mode" audio file will survive. Therefore, it will be suitable for live recording or preserving data
for a long period of time.
<Note>
• When formatting a disk in the Tape mode, two "Tape mode" audio files are created automatically.
Unlike a "Normal mode" audio file, you cannot create more than one "Tape mode" audio file on a disk.
however, note that you can create "Normal mode" audio files on a disk formatted in the Tape mode. (See the
next page.)
• You cannot undo a recording to a "Tape mode" file. If you press the [UNDO] key, "History File Non" is shown
on the display and the key operation is ineffective.
• When "Rec Protect" menu in the Utility mode is set to "ON", you cannot make recording. See "Chapter 16:
Utility mode" for details about how to release the protection.
•
You can record up to 2-GB audio data to a “Tape mode” audio file. The recorder automatically stops when it
elapses the maximum recording time. You can check the maximum recording time by pressing the [F FWD]
key while holding down the [STOP] key.
You can record to a "Tape mode" audio file when either one of the displays below is shown.
The recording procedure is same as described in "Recording an analog source in the INSERT mode" on page
4-7.

Creating a "Normal mode" audio file on a disk formatted in the Tape mode
Two "Tape mode" audio files of approximately 2.0GB size are created on a disk formatted in the Tape
mode, spending 4GB disk space. Therefore, in the remaining 0.7GB space, you can create "Normal mode"
audio files.
1. While a "Tape mode" audio file is selected, press the [FILE SEL] key.
The current "Tape mode" file number flashes.
2. Rotate the [JOG] dial to show "New File?" with the flashing file number.
Depending on whether you change the [AUDIO FILE] switch setting or not before pressing the [FILE
SEL] key, the file number shown is different.
The following assumes that the current "Tape mode" file is "BWF".
• When the [AUDIO FILE] switch is not changed (set to "BWF"):
"003" is shown, because a new "Normal mode" file is the third "BWF" file on the disk.

Tips:
If more than one “Normal mode” audio file is created on a disk formatted in the Tape mode and any “Normal
mode” audio file is currently selected, you can make recording in either the “NEW FILE” or “INSERT mode”.
• To select a desired audio file in the disk formatted in the Tape mode
Follow the same procedure as describe in "Selecting a desired file on a disk" on page 4-9.
<Note>
When loading a disk formatted in the Tape mode to the disk tray, the “001” audio file with the same type as
[AUDIO FILE] switch setting (BWF or SDII) is selected.
For example, if you load a disk which contains both “Tape mode” BWF and “Normal mode” SDII files, with the
[AUDIO FILE] switch set to “SDII”, the latter is selected.
4-11
Recording a digital source in the NEW FILE mode
The following describes how to record a digital source in the NEW FILE mode.
In the same way as recording an analog source, you can record a digital source in the NEW FILE mode to
a disk formatted in the Normal mode.
We assume that we are going to record a digital audio source in stereo.
<Note>
The first time you make recording to a disk just after formatted, the maximum recording size of
the audio file to be created is 2GB (the maximum recording time depends on the track mode and
Fs/bit settings). If the recording size exceeds 2GB during recording, the DV40 automatically stops
recording.
Preparation
Connection to external devices
1. Connect the external digital source outputs to the [TR2-1] of the [DIGITAL INPUT] section of the unit.
Channels L and R of the source are assigned to tracks 1 and 2 of the unit respectively.
The digital input signal format (AES/EBU or S/P DIF) is automatically recognized.
<Note>
When receiving a stereo digital signal with 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz Fs, connect channels L and R of the source
to [TR2-1] and [TR4-3] of the [DIGITAL INPUT] section respectively.
2. Connect a pair of monitor speakers with built-in amplifiers or an amplifier/speaker system to the [TR
1] and [TR 2] connectors of the [ANALOG OUTPUT] section of the unit.
3. If you want to lock the unit to a word or video signal, feed an appropriate external clock signal to the
[WORD IN] or [VIDEO IN].

Chapter 5
Time code recording
This chapter describes how to record time code generated by the internal time code
generator or external time code.
Time code recording
The unit can be referenced to SMPTE/EBU time code. SMPTE time code is applied to countries
adopting the NTSC television system, while EBU time code is applied to countries adopting the
PAL/SECAM system.
Selecting the recording mode
Two methods are available for recording time code.
• Recording time code together with audio simultaneously
When recording audio and time code while creating a new file:
Use the [NEW FILE] mode.
When recording new time code to an existing file:
Use the [INSERT] mode to record both audio and time code simultaneously.
Selecting source time code
Two time code sources to be recorded are available.
• Time code generated by the internal time code generator.
• External time code received from the [TIME CODE INPUT] connector.
<Note>
Actually, the DV40 records only the starting time of time code in the dedicated area and does not
stripe it throughout a track. Therefore, recording time code does not consume the recording
space of a disk.
<Notes about recordable time code value>
Normally you can stripe any time code values in 24 hours to a file.
However, with a high-sampling “SDII” file, the recordable time code values are limited.
5-2
Recording time code generated by the internal time code generator
You can record time code generated by the internal time code generator together with audio
simultaneously.
This section describes settings and operations for time code recording. See "Chapter 4: Audio recording/playback" for details about settings and operations for audio recording.
The following description assumes that one of the [AUDIO RDY] key indicators ([NEW FILE] or
[INSERT]) is lit.

1. Set the [FRAME RATE] switch appropriately according to time code to be recorded.
2. Set the [TC GEN MODE] switch appropriately according to the situation.
24H RUN
Time code starts from the current time of the internal clock of the unit.
REC RUN
When recording time code to a new file, the generator records time code from the value
which continues to the last time code value of the previous audio file.
FREE RUN
Runs the internal generator by the free run mode, and records the current internal generator
time as the start time.
EXT RUN
The external time code value is recorded as the start time.
<Note>
Unlike time code striped on an audio or video tape, time code on a disk is not striped from the
beginning to the end. Only the offset between the ABS time and time code at the recording
start point is recorded.
Therefore, if you record a discontinuous time code value in the middle, the unit cannot recognize it. Also, the user bit when time code starts recording is valid throughout the time code, so
the unit cannot handle the user bit that changes in the middle.
3. Press the [TC RDY] key to arm the time code track.
The TC RDY indicator is lit while "TC RDY" is shown on the display.
4. After pressing the [SHIFT] key to make the SHIFT mode active, press the [CHASE/(TC SETUP)] key to
enter the TC SETUP mode, then preset the internal time code generator time if necessary.
See page 5-6 for details about how to preset the internal time code generator time.
5-3
Recording external time code
You can record time code together with audio while synchronizing the unit to external time
code generated by an external generator or striped on a video/audio tape, etc.
This section describes settings and operations for time code recording. See "Chapter 4: Audio
recording/playback" for details about settings and operations for audio recording.
The following description assumes that one of the [AUDIO RDY] key indicators ([NEW FILE] or
[INSERT]) is lit.

You can trim the value in sub-frame unit between "-59s **f 99sf" and "+59s **f 99sf" (in which ** is
one smaller than the frame rate number).
After trimming the value, do not forget the next step!
4. After trimming the value, press the [ENTER/YES] key.
The trimmed value is set and the display returns to show "Trim?".
5. To exit the TC Setup mode, press the [EXIT/NO] key (or the [STOP] key).
• Editing the LTC start time
You can set the LTC start time at the "ABS 0" (beginning of an audio file) position to a desired
value. The start time of time code recorded with the [TC READY] key set to ON can be edited
later. If you record time code with the [TC READY] key set to OFF, “01H 00M 00S 00F 00SF”
(default) is recorded as the start time.
Tips:
The unit records only the LTC start time. It generates and outputs time code in reference to the start time.
In a BWF file, the start time is stored in "Time Reference" in "Broadcast Audio Extension Chunk", while, in a SDII file,
it is stored in "Time Stamp" in "Region List Resource Spec".
Therefore, if you want to use this LTC by the Digidesign Pro Tools, make the User Time Code valid after importing the audio file.
1. Use the jog dial (or [SKIP/CURSOR] [|<<] / [>>|] keys) to select "Edit LTC Start?".
The current LTC time is shown.
2. Press the [ENTER/YES] key.
The subframe value of the LTC starts flashing, showing that it now can be edited.

pressing the [CHASE] key), it stops chasing and runs freely, ignoring the incoming time code.
The unit rechases the incoming time code if it runs out of sync to the time code.
Frame Sync
In this mode, after the unit locks to the incoming time code, it continues to monitor the
incoming time code and control the speed to keep locking to the incoming time code by using
the small amount of vari speed which is inaudible.
The unit rechases the incoming time code if it runs out of sync to the time code.
1. Use the jog dial (or [SKIP/CURSOR] [|<<] / [>>|] keys) to select "Chase MD?".

Storing time data
This chapter explains how to store time data to location memories for the
track editing or locate functions.
Location memory keys
6 location memory keys are used to store location data for the track editing (for copy, paste,
insert, erase, etc.) and locate functions.
The location memory keys include four "edit point keys" and two "locate point keys".
The table below shows their names and usage of the corresponding location memories.

[CUE POINT] key
• CUE points 01 through 99 for location
[MEMORY] key
• MEMORY points 00 through 99 for location (MEMORY
points 01 through 03 are assigned for the specific time
data.)
Tips:
The CUE points can be used only for the current audio file, while the edit points and MEMORY
points are common to all audio files.
When turning off the power, the CUE and MEMORY point data do not disappear, while the edit
point data are cleared and reset to the initial value (00H 00M 00S 00F 00SF).
Tips:
See "Chapter 7: Locate functions" for details about comprehensive locate functions using location memories.
6-2
Storing a time to an edit point memory
The following describes how to store a time to an edit point memory required for track editing. There are two methods for enter a time; "on the fly" and "numerical entry".
<Notes>
• If you want to store a time based on LTC instead of ABS time, select the displayed time to LTC using the
[DISP TIME] key in advance.
• Edit point memories can be used by all audio files, however, turning off the power clears all the
memories and resets them to the initial value (00H 00M 00S 00F 00SF).
• Capturing a time "on the fly"
During playback, you can capture a time at the desired point "on the fly" and store it to an edit point
memory.
1. Press the [PLAY] key to start playback.
2. Press the [STORE] key at the point you want to capture the time.
The time data at the point when pressing the key is held and the display shows something like the example
below. To store the time to any of the edit point memories, ignore the display and go to step 3.
"CUE" or "MEMORY" is lit.

subframe digit flashes. In this condition, you can edit the MEMORY
value before storing the data. Use the [SKIP/CURSOR] |<</
Flashing
>>| keys to move the flashing digit and use the jog dial to
enter the value. (Or you can directly enter the time data using the numeric keys.)
To store edited data, press the [STORE] key again, followed by a desired edit point key.
3. Press a desired edit point key ([SOURCE IN], [SOURCE OUT], [DEST IN] or [DEST OUT]).
The time data held is stored to the appropriate edit point memory. The display returns to the previous screen
and the unit resumes playback.
<Note>
You must always set an IN point earlier than the corresponding OUT point. (i.e. SOURCE IN < SOURCE
OUT, DEST IN < DEST OUT)
4. To store another edit point time, repeat steps 2 and 3 above.
5. After completing data entry, press the [STOP] key to stop playback.
Tips:
To check the edit point time stored, press the desired edit point key while stopped. The time data is
shown on the display.
The edit point memories are used for the audio data editing (such as copy, paste, insert, erase and cut)
and the direct locate function. See "Chapter 10: Editing track data" for details.

• Storing a time to an edit point using the numeric keys
You can recall and edit an edit point time and store the edited time.
1. While stopped, press a desired edit point key.
The display shows the appropriate edit point time.
You can now edit the time.
The following example shows the display after pressing the [SOURCE IN] key, in which the subframe value
is flashing, showing that it can be edited.

Tips:
If you press an edit point key whose corresponding memory does not hold data, "00H 00M 00S 00SF" is
shown. You can enter the desired time from this condition and store it to the edit point memory.
2. Enter the desired time.
There are two methods for time entry as below.
• Use the |<</>>| keys to move the flashing (edit) point, and use the jog dial to enter a value.
If the value of the edit point overruns or underruns, the value of the left digit increments or decrements respectively.
• Use the numeric keys to enter a time directly.
Each number is entered from the right digit, which moves left as additional digits are entered.
For example, to enter "00H 12M 15S 00F 00SF", press 0 -> 0 -> 1 -> 2 -> 1 -> 5 -> 0 -> 0 -> 0 -> 0.
<Note>
You must always set an IN point earlier than the corresponding OUT point. (i.e. SOURCE IN <
SOURCE OUT, DEST IN < DEST OUT)
Tips:
If you enter an inappropriate value to one of these digits, the unit automatically calculates and set
the proper time.
For example, if you enter "00H 12M 75S 00F 00SF", the stored time value is "00H 13M 15S 00S
00SF".
3. Press the [STORE] key.
"Select Memories?" is shown on the display, as in step 2 on the previous page.
Ignore the display and go to the next step.
4. Press a desired edit point key.
The edited time data is stored to the appropriate memory.
6-4
Storing a time to a locate point memory (CUE/MEMORY)
Using the [CUE POINT] or [MEMORY] key, you can store a desired point time to a locate point
memory, and use it to locate there later. You can also give desired names to them or clear the
data.
In the same way as with edit point memories, there are two methods for storing a time data to
a locate point memory; "on the fly" and "numerical entry".
<Notes>
• If you want to store a locate point based on LTC instead of ABS time, select the displayed time to LTC
using the [DISP TIME] key in advance.
• 99 CUE point memories (01 through 99) are available in the CUE bank.
The CUE point memories can be used only for the current audio file.
• 99 MEMORY points (01 through 99) are available in the MEMORY bank, however, you can freely store
a desired time to MEMORY points 04 through 99. MEMORY points 01 through 03 are reserved for the
specific points as below and data are automatically stored.
MEMORY 01: Last Play Memory
The last playback start time is automatically stored. This memory is overwritten each time playback
starts.
MEMORY 02: Last Record In
The last recording start time is automatically stored. This memory is overwritten each time recording
starts.
MEMORY 03: Last Record Out
The last recording end time is automatically stored. This memory is overwritten each time recording
ends.
The MEMORY point data are stored to the flash ROM in the unit, therefore, you can use the MEMORY
data with any audio files on any disks.
Tips:
If you change the current audio file to another one and store a time to a new MEMORY point, the MEMORY
point numbers used in the previous file(s) cannot be used, as shown below. However, All the MEMORY
points can be used with any audio files.

Audio File 003
In the diagram above, MEMORY points 04 through 07 were stored when Audio File 001 was selected.
However, you can use MEMORY points 04 through 11 with Audio File 001.
However, only the MEMORY points within the recorded area are effective, so MEMORY points 07 and 10
are not effective with Audio File 003.
If you select Audio File 003 and check MEMORY 07 or 10, "--H--M--S--F--SF" is shown.
MEMORY point data are not cleared when reformatting a disk. To clear unnecessary MEMORY point, see
"Clearing a CUE or MEMORY point".
As shown in the above drawings, if you have stored MEMORY point data on more than one audio file, the
MEMORY points are not always numbered in order of ABS time.
In the above example, the MEMORY points in order of ABS time are; MEMORY 08 -> 04 -> 09 -> 05 -> 11
-> 06 -> 12 -> 10 -> 07 .

Audio file management
This chapter describes the management of audio files.
Creating a new audio file
Regardless of whether a disk is formatted in the Normal or Tape mode, you can newly create
only a "Normal mode" audio file by using the file select function.
<Note>
To record to an audio file created by the file select function, use the INSERT mode.
• Creating a new file on a disk just after formatted in the Normal mode
In the following procedure, we assume that a disk just after formatted is loaded and the
display shows "No Audio Files!".
1. Select a desired audio file format between "BWF" and "SDII" using the [AUDIO FILE] switch.
2. Select a desired track mode using the [TR MODE] switch.
3. Select a desired sampling frequency/bit length combination using the [SAMPLING FREQ] switch.
4. Press the [FILE SEL] key.
"New FIle?" appears with flashing "001", showing that audio file "001" is newly created.

• Creating a new file on a disk just after formatted in the Tape mode
You can create more than one "Normal mode" audio file (of the "BWF" or "SDII" format) on a
disk formatted in the Tape mode.
In the following procedure, we assume that a disk just after formatted in the Tape mode is
loaded and a "Tape mode" audio file of the "BWF" format is selected.
<Note>
"Normal mode" audio files are created in the remaining area of a disk after two "Tape mode" audio files
(occupying approximately 2 GB per each file) are created when the disk is formatted in the Tape mode.
Therefore, approximately 0.7 GB space can be used by "Normal mode" audio files.
1. Select a desired audio file format between "BWF" and "SDII" using the [AUDIO FILE] switch.
2. Select a desired track mode using the [TR MODE] switch.
3. Select a desired sampling frequency/bit length combination using the [SAMPLING FREQ] switch.
4. Press the [FILE SEL] key.
"New FIle?" appears with flashing "001" or "003", depending on the [AUDIO FILE] switch selection in step 1
above.
If you select "SDII", "001" flashes because this will be the first "SDII" file in the "sd2f" directory.
If you select "BWF", "003" flashes because this will be the third "BWF" file in the "bwff" directory (two "Tape
mode" BWF files are already created).

5. Press the [ENTER/YES] key.
A "Normal mode" audio file is created and the display shows the tentative file name, as well as the "ABS 0"
time (the beginning of the file). The tentative name begins by "S" or "B" which shows the file format ("S"
for "SDII" and "B" for "BWF") selected by the [AUDIO FILE] switch in step 1 above, followed by the time and
date when the file is created.
A tentative name can be edited. See "Editing a file name" described later.
If you create another audio file, regardless of whether the currently selected audio file is "Tape mode" or
"Normal mode", carry out steps 1 through 4 above and then use the jog dial to show "New File?", followed
by pressing the [ENTER/YES] key.
Tips:
The file number of a newly created
"Normal mode" audio file depends
on the format of the two "Tape
mode" audio files.
If you create a "Normal mode" audio file of the same format as the
"Tape mode" audio files, "003" is assigned to the file number.
If you create a "Normal mode" audio file of the different format from
the "Tape mode" audio files, "001" is
assigned to the file number.

Selecting an audio file
You can select an audio file by using the file select or skip function.
Tips:
By using the "File Sort?" menu in the Setup mode, you can sort audio files by name or date, allowing file
selection easier. See "Chapter 15: Setup mode" for details.
• Selecting a file using the file select function
The following assumes that three "BWF" and two "SDII" files are created on a disk and the "BWF
001" file is currently selected.
1. Select a desired audio file format between "BWF" and "SDII" using the [AUDIO FILE] switch.
If you select "SDII", "SDII" is lit instead of "BWF" in the FORMAT information area on the display.
2. Press the [FILE SEL] key.

Tips:
By pressing the [FILE SEL] key after pressing the [SHIFT] key (to turn on the indicator), you can select
audio files from among both the file directories ("bwff" and "sd2f").
• Selecting a file using the skip function
You can select an audio file using the [SKIP/CURSOR] ([|<<] / [>>|]) keys by setting the "Skip
Mode?" menu in the Setup mode to "File". "File" is the initial setting, therefore, as long as you
keep this setting, you can carry out the file selection using the skip function.
If the "Skip Mode?" menu is set to "CUE" or "MEM", change the option to "File".
See "Chapter 15: Setup mode" for details about how to set the "Skip Mode?" menu.
<Note>
Using the skip function, you can select an audio file among those in the same directory ("bwff" or "sd2f").
1. While stopped, press the [SKIP/CURSOR] [|<<] or [>>|] key.
Pressing the [|<<] key skips to the beginning of the previous audio file, while pressing the [>>|] key skips to
the beginning of the next audio file.
You can skip to the beginning of a desired file by pressing [|<<] or [>>|] key repeatedly as many times as
required.

Tips: File extension
Generally, each file has a file extension; ".wav" for a "BWF" file, or ".sd2" for a "SDII" file.
When editing the name of a "BWF" file, if you enter a name without the file extension, ".wav" is automatically added.
".sd2" is not automatically added to the name of a "SDII".
Note that the display only shows up to 16 characters, therefore, if an edited name has 17 or more
characters, only the first 16 characters are shown.
5. Enter a desired name.
You can enter characters by two ways as below.
• Use the jog dial to enter a character at the flashing point. You can move the flashing point to the
right using the [SKIP/CURSOR] [>>|] key.
• Use the numeric keys at the flashing point. When pressing another numeric key, the flashing point
moves to the right.
6. After you finish entering the desired name, press the [ENTER/YES] key.

The audio file is deleted. The display shows "Completed!" momentarily, followed by the ABS 0 point (the
beginning) of the next audio file.
Tips: Restoring a deleted file
A deleted file still remains on the disk as a hidden file, therefore, you can restore a deleted file.
See "Restoring a deleted audio file" on the next page.
When selecting an audio file using the file select function, the deleted file is shown on the display as
"<<Hidden File>>". The display example below shows that audio file 008 which has been deleted still
remains on the disk as a hidden file.
PGM
NEXT
<Note>
If you optimize the disk when any deleted audio file is hidden, the hidden audio file is completely
deleted from the disk and you cannot restore the file anymore.
If you select the completely deleted file using the file select function, "<<Deleted File>>" is shown,
instead of "<<Hidden File>>", indicating that the file is completely deleted.
Tips:
If you delete all the (two) "Tape mode" audio files on a disk formatted in the Tape mode and then
optimize the disk, the disk becomes equivalent to the one formatted in the "Normal" mode.

LIST PLAY function
This chapter describes the list play function, by which you can play back
more than one recorded audio file continuously.
LIST PLAY function
The LIST PLAY function allows to link multiple audio files recorded by the same condition
(e.g. TR MODE, Fs, AUDIO FILE) and reproduce the files continuously while maintaining TC
continuity. There are two LIST PLAY modes; One is the “LTC_Link” and the other the “SongLink”
available on DV40.
LTC_Link
In the “LTC_Link” mode, based on the recorded LTC Start Time in each file, multiple files are linked and
reproduced continuously. This mode should be used when the LTC address has to be matched in conjunction with other equipment such as a video camera.
SongLink
The “SongLink” mode links audio files in the file number ascending order (e.g. file No.1 -> file No.2 -> file
No.3 ...). LTC Start Time will be set according to the one recorded in the first link file (default setting: 01h
00m 00s 00f) and the LTC will be jammed regardless of recorded LTC Start Time in the following linked
files. This mode is convenient when reproducing multiple audio files continuously.
<CAUTION 1>
In order to link multiple audio files recorded on DV40, each SW setting, audio file format (BWF or SDII),
sampling frequency, resolution (quantization bits) and track mode (mono, stereo or multi) must be the
same in all the files to be kinked.
<CAUTION 2>
The message “<<Silent Area>>” indicating no audio to be reproduced exists will be displayed on the DV40
FL display when in the following condition.
• If there is an overlapping LTC address between the files in the LTC_Link mode, <<Silent Area>> is
displayed while reproducing the overlapped latter file.
• There are hidden files (deleted files) in the LTC_Link mode.
• When the last linked file finishes reproducing.
Presume that the following six files (including deleted File No.5) recorded by the same condition (Fs,
resolution, etc.) exist on the DVD-RAM disk.

In the LTC_Link mode, there is a gap of LTC address (01h00m30s00f ~ 01h01m00s00f) between the File No.
001 and 002. Although LTC is continuously output in this section, <<Silent Area>> is displayed.
There is an overlapping LTC address between the File No. 002 and 003. Since a smaller File No. has a
priority, File No. 002 is reproduced and File No. 003 will not be reproduced. Thus, <<Silent Area>> is
displayed from 01h01m30s00f ~ 01h02m30s00f.
<<Silent Area>> is also displayed in the deleted File No. 005 LTC section (01h02m30s00f ~ 01h03m00s00f).
In the SongLink mode, DV40 just simply links the File No. 001 ~ 004 and 006 regardless of LTC START
address setting on the File No. 002 ~ 004 and 006. Then, it reproduces each file continuously.
In both Link modes, DV40 keeps on playing and outputting LTC even after reproducing the last link file is
completed. In this section, <<Silent Area>> is displayed.
Refer to the following explanation to turn on the LIST PLAY mode.

FTP Server Function
This chapter describes the FTP server function using the ETHER card
mounted on the DV40.
FTP Server Function
Working as a FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server, DV40 can send and receive BWF and SDII
files to and from a client PC using TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol).
When sending and receiving data, a FTP client application is required.
<Notes>
• Audio file can be transferred only while the DV40 is stopped (however, it is possible to log in only
while the DV40 is running).
• Set the [CONTROL] switch on the DV40 front panel to "REMOTE" when using the FTP function. If
the [CONTROL] switch is set to "LOCAL", the FTP function does not work (however, you can log in
even if the switch is set to "LOCAL").
• While transferring audio file data, the display shows "TCP CONNECTED" and all key operations are
disabled. To interrupt the data transfer, send the "abort" command from the FTP client or alter
the [CONTROL] switch on the DV40 front panel to "LOCAL".
• When the DV40 is in the initial condition, you can log in even if you do not enter the login name
and password.
To control logging in, enter the desired login name and password in the TCP/IP Setup menu.
See "Chapter 15: Setup mode" for details about how to set them.
Connection
When connecting DV40 to a client PC, a “Category 5” cable which complies to 10BASE-T and
100BASE-TX must be used. If DV40 is directly connected to a client PC, a cross cable must be
used. In the case DV40 is connected to a client PC via hub, a straight cable must be used.
When DV40 recognizes a client PC, the “LINK” LED on the DV40 rear panel is lit solid.

take number which automatically increments. The
default file name and starting take number can be
set in the "DefaultFileName?" menu and are effective
only when setting "F.Name MD?" to "TAKE".
If you create a new audio file, the DV40 gives a file
name starting by the specified file name, followed
by the take number and ended by the file extension. Each time recording in the NEW FILE mode is
made, a new audio file with an incremented take
number is created.

Selecting On or Off of the resume function
Editing a Volume Label
This menu selects On or Off of the resume function.
If it is set to On, the file that was selected when turning off the power last time is selected when starting
up the unit.
The “Volume Label” is name which is used to identify a disk. It is normally named when formatting a
disk. As mentioned in the DV40 owner’s manual
page 1-5, the default name of Volume Label to be
attached to the DVD-RAM disk is “DV40-DVD”.
This menu allows you to edit the volume label of a
DVD-RAM disk and rename it.
This menu is global and the setting is maintained
after you turn off the power.
1. Select the first level of the "Resume?" menu, and press
the [ENTER/YES] key.
This menu is global and the setting is maintained
after you turn off the power.
The current option (On or Off) flashes. You can now
select the desired one.
Tips:
By entering a volume label in the following format, the unit can recognize it as a Reel number.
If you set the "TC UBIT Sel?" menu in the TC Setup
mode to "SRNo" (Scene number/Reel number),
you can output the Reel number in the lower
three digits of the User Bits.
Flashing
Example: ******-XXX
******:
XXX:
Flashing
2. Use the jog dial to select On or Off and press the
[ENTER/YES] key.
The setting is completed and the display returns to show
the first level.
“On”
The file that was selected when turning off the power last time is selected
when turning on the unit.
“Off” (default)
The "01" file in the "bwff" or "sd2f"
directory is selected when turning
on the unit.
Volume name
a three-digit numeral between 000
through 999. It must end with a Null
character. The unit recognizes a
three-digit ASCII BCD that follows to
"-" as a Reel number.
A Windows 98/NT computer supports up to 10
characters for a volume label, while a Macintosh
computer supports up to 27 characters and UDF
format supports up to 127 characters.
To maintain the compatibility among computers, we recommend to set a volume label within
10 characters.
<Note>
You can also set a Reel number in the "Set SCENE
& REEL?" menu described later.
Therefore, if you edit a Volume label with the format above so that the unit can recognize it as a
Reel number, the Reel number is automatically
rewritten.
Tips:
You can also use the [SKIP/CURSOR] |<</>>| keys to
select an option, instead of the jog dial.
<CAUTION>
• Due to the limitation of the number of
alphanumeric characters used for VOLUME
LABEL recognized on Windows OS, using up to
10 alphanumeric characters including the 3-digit
REEL NUMBER are recommended.
<Note>
When turning on the power, if the setting of the [AUDIO FILE], [TR MODE] or [SAMPLING FREQ] switch does
not match the selected audio file, the currently selected option flashes in the "FORMAT", "BIT" or "FS"
section on the display.
In such a case, set the corresponding switch to the
appropriate position.
• The REEL NUMBER XXX is just a character string.
Please remember that it does not roll over to
the next digit or roll back to the previous digit.

When formatting the DVD-RAM disk, renaming the
VOLUME LABEL with 3-dogit number (e.g. DV40005) from the default name (DV40-DVD) is possible, so that the 3-digit number can be recognized
as a REEL NUMBER which allows to output as a TC
UBIT information.
