Please read before using
Before using the internal CD-R/RW drive of the MR-8HD/CD (or an external CD-R/RW
drive), read the following.
Usable discs
Only discs with any of the following logos can be used with the internal CD-R/RW drive of the
MR-8HD/CD (or an external CD-R/RW drive connected to the MR-8HD/CD [USB HOST] port).
<CD-R disc>
Recordable
You can make additional recording to a CD-R disc until it is finalized if it is brand
new and still has enough recordable area (additional recording is possible only in
the "Track at once" mode).
<CD-RW disc>
ReWritable
You can make additional recording to a CD-RW disc until it is finalized if it is brand
new and still has enough recordable area (additional recording is possible only in
the "Track at once" mode).
<CD disc>
You can view TOC information of a disc with this logo (such as a commercially
available CD) but you cannot make recording.
<Note>: Using the internal CD-R/RW drive of the MR-8HD/CD (or an external CD-R/RW drive
connected to the MR-8HD/CD [USB HOST] port), you cannot play back CD-DA discs you created
(or commercially available audio CDs).
Handling of CD-R/RW discs
•
Handle a disc with care by holding them by the rim or
by a finger through the center hole, rather than
touching the surface. Do not get fingerprints, dust,
scratch, etc. on the signal side.
•
Do not affix any labels or stickers to the label side of
the disc. Do not make a scratch on the label side.
A scratch may make recording or playback
impossible. Do not write on the label side of a disc
with a hard pen such as a ballpoint pen and a pencil.
Only use a soft pen.
•
Do not use a curved or cracked disc, which may cause
malfunction of the drive.
•
If dust or fingerprint is attached to the signal side, wipe
the disc gently with a soft dry cloth or a cloth with
ethyl alcohol from the center towards the outside edge.
Do not wipe it from the outside towards the center.

MR-8HD/CD Supplementary manual
Track data which can be recorded to a CD-R/RW disc
You can record a stereo WAV file converted from two mono files on tracks 7 and 8 (final
mixed-down files) to a CD-R/RW disc in the CD-DA format. Mixed-down files on tracks 7
and 8 can be created by in either of the following track bouncing methods.
(1) Bouncing tracks 1 through 6 to tracks 7/8 of the same song.
(2) Bouncing tracks 1 through 8 to tracks 7/8 of the new song.
See pages 63 through 74 of the MR-8HD/CD owner's manual for details about track
bouncing. See pages 90 and 91 of the MR-8HD/CD owner's manual for details about how
to convert files on tracks 7 and 8 to a stereo WAV file.
On the MR-8HD/CD, a stereo WAV file converted from track 7/8 data is stored to the "2
MIX" folder in the Song folder of the original
song (see the illustration on the left). Also see
page 93 of the MR-8HD/CD owner's manual.
Song
2 MIX
#####001.wav
*********.wav
#####002.wav
#####003.wav
When creating an audio CD using the internal
CD-R/RW drive (or an external CD-R/RW
drive), only stereo WAV files in the "2 MIX"
folder can be burned to a CD-R/RW disc in the
CD-DA format. Therefore, you must load the
song in which one or more desired stereo WAV
files are stored.
Before creating an audio CD, read the <Note>
on the next page.
#####008.wav
<Hint!>: Before creating an audio CD, you can check a stereo WAV file in the "2 MIX"
folder by playing back in the "2 MIX file playback" mode (see page 5 for details), as well
as can set CUE points for track division. If you make an audio CD from a stereo WAV file
which contains more than one song (such as a file of "live" recording), you can divide the
file into tracks by setting a CUE to the beginning of each song. In this case, select the
burning mode to "Disk at once" when creating an audio CD (for details about how to set
a CUE, see "Stereo WAV file playback" from the next page).
<Note>: To play back a stereo WAV file or create an audio CD, you must load the song in which the
bounced track data on tracks 7/8 has been converted to the stereo WAV file (see the example
below).
<Example>: If five songs (01 through 05) are recorded on the hard disk and the stereo WAV
file to be burned to a CD-R/RW disc is stored in the "2 MIX" folder of Song 03;
Load Song 03 before starting the operation.
To load the desired song, use the "Select Song" menu item in the "Song" menu of the MENU
mode. See page 98 of the MR-8HD/CD owner's manual for details about the "Select Song"
menu item.

About "Track at once" and "Disk at once"
The MR-8HD/CD provides two burning modes for creating an audio CD in the CD-DA format.
"Track at once"
The unit burns a stereo WAV file to a CD-R/RW disc as a track. You can burn an additional
track at a later time until the disc is finalized. Each time you burn a file, a TOC is created.
Approximately two-second silence is automatically inserted between tracks.
"Disk at once"
The unit burns a stereo WAV file and automatically finalizes the disc. You cannot burn an
additional data. As described earlier in "2 MIX file playback mode", when one or more CUE
points are set to the stereo WAV file, file data is divided into tracks at the CUE points.
In this mode, no mute space is created between tracks. (Note that if the stereo WAV file
does not have any CUE point, it is burned as a single track.)
The following is assumed that a song which has a stereo WAV file in the "2 MIX folder" is loaded.
1)
Set a blank CD-R/RW disc to the CD-R/RW drive.
2)
While the unit is stopped, press the

MR-8HD/CD Supplementary manual
Viewing the TOC information after finalizing
The following assumes that a disc automatically finalized after "Disk at once" writing or a disc
finalized after "Track at once" writing is ejected from the internal CD-R/RW drive, while the
display shows the CD-RW menu screen where "CD Finalize " is highlighted.
1)
Close the ejected disc tray of the CD-R/RW
drive.
<Note>: When you burn multiple stereo WAV
files by "Track at once" and finalized or you burn
a stereo WAV file with multiple CUE points by
"Disk at once", the Track list screen looks like
the one below (the remaining time is shown as
"0h 00m 00s", of course).
Push the front of the disc tray gently by hand.
The finalized disc is loaded.
Confirm that the "CD Finalize " is highlighted
on the screen.
<Note>: When you close the tray, the drive
starts reading the disc and the access indicator starts flashing. Therefore, do not carry out
the next operation until the drive stops accessing and the access indicator gets unlit.
2)
<Note>: You can also view the TOC of a commercially available audio CD, as with an audio
CD you create using the MR-8HD/CD. (Note
that some commercially available audio CDs
may not show the TOC information.)
Use the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select
"CD TOC " and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob.
To do this, set an audio CD to the CD-R/RW
drive and carry out the same operation as described above using the "CD-RW" menu in the
MENU mode.
Note that you can view only the playing time of
each track. You cannot view track titles.
The display shows "Please Wait...", followed by
the TOC information, as with "Viewing the TOC
information before finalizing".
However, in this case, the remaining time is
shown as "0h 00m 00s", which means no more
track can be recorded to this finalized disc.
3)
After checking the TOC information, use the
[STOP] key to exit the MENU mode.
The display returns to the Home screen.

Importing track data on a CD-DA disc
You can import (copy) track data on a CD-DA (audio CD) disc (including a commercially
available audio CD) to a stereo track pair (1/2, 3/4, 5/6 or 7/8) of the currently loaded
song. When importing track data, data is converted to a pair of mono WAV files.
In the following description, it is assumed that a CD-DA disc is set to the internal CD-R/
RW drive and the song of the import destination is loaded.
<Note>: You can import track data on a CD-DA disc only to the internal CD-R/RW drive.

Important! CD-R/RW drives which can be connected to the MR-8HD/CD
You can connect the MR-8HD/CD [USB HOST] port to any CD-R/RW drive which has a [USB]
port and can be powered by AC main or batteries. The MR-8HD/CD does not provide USB bus
power facility (which allows supplying power to an external device from the unit), therefore,
you cannot connect a CD-R/RW drive which only can be powered by USB connection.
Also note that the models which can be used with the MR-8HD/CD may change. Check the
update information of the currently available CD-R/RW drives from Fostex website (http://
www.fostex.com) before purchasing a drive unit.
About "Track at once" and "Disk at once"
The MR-8HD/CD provides two burning modes for creating an audio CD in the CD-DA format.
"Track at once"
The unit burns a stereo WAV file to a CD-R/RW disc as a track. You can burn an additional
track at a later time until the disc is finalized. Each time you burn a file, a TOC is created.
Approximately two-second silence is automatically inserted between tracks.
"Disk at once"
The unit burns a stereo WAV file and automatically finalizes the disc. You cannot burn an
additional data. As described earlier in "2 MIX file playback mode", when one or more CUE
points are set to the stereo WAV file, file data is divided into tracks at the CUE points.
In this mode, no mute space is created between tracks. (Note that if the stereo WAV file
does not have any CUE point, it is burned as a single track.)
In the procedure described below, it is assumed that the following preparations are made.
• Both the MR-8HD/CD and the CD-R/RW drive are powered, while a CD-R/RW disc is set to the CD-R/
RW drive .
• The song which has the stereo WAV file to be burned is loaded.

Viewing the TOC information
You can view the TOC information of a burned disc both before finalizing and after
finalizing (for a disc burned by "Disk at once", you can view the TOC only after finalizing,
of course). It is recommended to check the remaining time (the recordable time left) from
the TOC information whenever you write an additional stereo WAV file in the "Track at
once" mode.
<TOC>: TOC stands for Table of Contents. TOC lists number of CD tracks, their starting
locations, playing time of each track on the disc, etc.
Viewing the TOC information before finalizing (only for a disc burned by "Track at once")
The following assumes that a disc contains a track burned by "Track at once" and has not yet
been finalized, while "CD Burn " is highlighted on the USB HOST screen.
1)
2)
Use the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select
"CD TOC " and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob.
The display shows "Please Wait...", followed by
the track number and playing time, as well as
the disc remaining time.
After viewing TOC, use the [MENU/ENTER] knob
to select " Back" and press the
[MENU/ENTER] knob.
The display returns to the screen where
"CD TOC " is highlighted.
To burn an additional track by "Track at once"
after viewing the TOC information, select “CD
Burn ” and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob, then
select a desired stereo WAV file, as described
earlier (see page 24).
To finalize the disc after viewing the TOC information, select "CD Finalize " and press the
[MENU/ENTER] knob (see page 24).
<Note>: The following shows the screen example when you burn multiple WAV files by
“Track at once”. You can check the playing time
of each track as well as the disc remaining time.

Viewing the TOC information after finalizing
The following assumes that a disc automatically finalized after "Disk at once" writing or a disc
finalized after "Track at once" writing is ejected from an external CD-R/RW drive, while the
display shows the CD-RW menu screen where "CD Finalize " is highlighted.
1)
Close the ejected disc tray of the CD-R/RW
drive.
<Note>: When you burn multiple stereo WAV
files by "Track at once" and finalized or you burn
a stereo WAV file with multiple CUE points by
"Disk at once", the Track list screen looks like
the one below (the remaining time is shown as
"0h 00m 00s", of course).
Push the front of the disc tray gently by hand.
The finalized disc is loaded.
Confirm that the "CD Finalize " is highlighted
on the screen.
<Note>: When you close the tray, the drive
starts reading the disc and the access indicator starts flashing. Therefore, do not carry out
the next operation until the drive stops accessing and the access indicator gets unlit.
2)
<Note>: You can also view the TOC of a commercially available audio CD, as with an audio
CD you create using the MR-8HD/CD. (Note
that some commercially available audio CDs
may not show the TOC information.)
Use the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select
"CD TOC " and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob.
The display shows "Please Wait...", followed by
the TOC information, as with "Viewing the TOC
information before finalizing".
To do this, set an audio CD to the CD-R/RW
drive and carry out the same operation as described above using the "USB HOST" menu in
the MENU mode.
Note that you can view only the playing time of
each track. You cannot view track titles.
However, in this case, the remaining time is
shown as "0h 00m 00s", which means no more
tracks can be recorded to this finalized disc.
3)
After checking the TOC information, use the
[STOP] key to exit the MENU mode.
The display returns to the Home screen.
