● In Video mode, even before finalizing, it is impossible to perform
editing operations other than changing the disc name and/or title
names and deleting programs and/or titles.
● After finalizing, it is impossible to perform editing operations.
● This unit can recognize up to 9 hierarchies including directories
and files.
Also, it can recognize up to 250 files in each group, and up to 99
groups on a disc.
NOTES:
● Video CD/SVCD discs that support Playback Control (PBC)
The contents of a disc are recorded into several hierarchies, and
played back according to the instructions on the screen while
navigating through the hierarchies. It is also possible to playback
recorded tracks consecutively without activating the PBC function
even when playing a PBC-compatible disc. (A pg. 26)
● Regarding the contents recorded on discs
Some files may not be played back depending on the file types
and other factors.

Disc tray
Place the disc on the disc tray with the label side facing up. Since
disc size changes depending on the disc to be played back, be
sure to correctly align the disc with the grooves for its size. If the
disc is not in its groove, it may be scratched or otherwise damaged.
To insert an 8 cm disc, place it according to the inner groove.
DVD-RAM discs contained in cartridges
Double-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the grooves
on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert with the side
you wish to play back or record facing down. If you insert the disc
with ASide AB facing down, programs are recorded on the side A.
Single-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the grooves
on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert with the label
side facing up.
DISC INFORMATION
Care And Handling Of Discs
How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do not
touch the surface of the disc.
Since discs are made of
plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped, the
images and sound will not be
picked up correctly, and such a
disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any adhesives
on its surface.
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched or dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that a
DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirty when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs
If there are fingerprints or other dirt adhering
to a disc, wipe with a soft dry cloth, moving
from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a cloth
moistened with water. Never use record
cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any anti-static
agents.
CAUTION:
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images may
be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not be up
to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the malfunction
of the unit.

Recording Mode
MPEG2 format is used as recording format. As a guide for picture
quality, the AbpsB unit is used to represent how much data can be
recorded per second. The larger this value is, the better the picture
quality becomes but more capacity is required for the recording.
Select XP or SP for programs where quick movement occurs, such
as sports programs, and LP or EP for talk shows, etc. with
relatively less movement.
The recording modes for a 4.7 GB disc are set as follows:
EN
A: 1st
B: 2nd
C: 3rd
D: 4th
E: 5th
When the same program is recorded in SP mode instead of in
AFR125B, the 5th program cannot be recorded.
Blank

B: 2nd
C: 3rd
D: 4th

NOTES:
● The maximum recording time of FR (JUST) mode is the same as
the recording time of FR480 mode. When dubbing a long
program in FR (JUST) mode on a disc whose remaining time is
short, it is recommended to check the disc remaining time in
FR480 mode to see if the remaining time is enough for the
program.
● In order to ensure that the recording fits on the disc, this feature
may leave a slight non-recorded section at the end of the disc.
● There may be some noise and sound disturbance at the point on
