MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies certain ISO/MPEG regulations.
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio
Layer 3) format. However, the discs must be
recorded according to ISO9660 Level 1, Level 2,
or Joliet format for the recorder to recognize the
tracks. You can also play discs recorded in Multi
Session.
See the instructions supplied with the CD-R/CDRW drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
z Hints
• Playback stops when all the MP3 audio tracks within
the album are played.
• Since a disc with many trees takes longer to start
playback, it is recommended that you create albums
with no more than two trees.
Notes
• The recorder may not be able to play some DATA CDs
created in the Packet Write format.
• The recorder will play any data with the extension
“.MP3,” even if they are not in MP3 format. Playing
this data may generate a loud noise which could
damage your speaker system.
• The recorder does not conform to audio tracks in
MP3PRO format.
• The recorder can recognize up to a total number of 999
albums and tracks in a DATA CD. The recorder may
not recognize some discs depending on the recording
device used for recording or the disc condition.
• The recorder can play MP3 audio tracks recorded in the
following sampling frequencies: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz,
48 kHz.
• Only the letters in the alphabet and numbers can be
used for album or track names.
• ID3 tags cannot be displayed.

About JPEG image files
JPEG is image compression technology.
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) recorded in JPEG format. However,
the discs must be recorded according to ISO9660
Level 1, Level 2, or Joliet format for the recorder
to recognize the files.
You can also play discs recorded in Multi Session.
See the instructions supplied with the CD-R/
CD-RW drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
z Hints
• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front of the

with no more than two trees.
Notes
• The recorder can only play files with the extension
“.JPG.”
• The recorder can recognize up to a total number of 999
folders and files in a disc. The recorder may not
recognize some discs depending on the recording
device used for recording or the disc condition.
• Depending on the disc or the size of image files,
playback may take some time to start.
• The image size that the recorder can display is limited
to 8192 × 7680 pixels.
• Progressive and lossless compression JPEG image files

Erasing and Editing
You can utilize disc capacity by erasing Video
mode or original titles. The effect differs
depending on the disc type and location of the title,
as follows.
Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc and title types. Before you edit, check
these types and select an available option.
Disc type
To open up disc space
DVD+RW
Erase the last title on the disc. You
can erase and overwrite titles other
than the last one; however, the
display will not show the resulting
capacity increase. Erased titles are
shown as deleted in the Title List
menu.
DVD-RW
(VR mode)
Erase original titles anywhere on
the disc.
Notes
• You may lose edited contents if you remove the disc
while editing.
• Finish editing and recording before finalizing. No more
editing or recording can be made on a finalized disc.
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
+RW
-RWVR -RWVideo
+R
DVD+R/

You cannot increase the disc
capacity, as they are nonrewritable.
-R
For Video mode titles on DVD+RWs/DVD-RWs
(Video mode)/DVD+Rs/ DVD-Rs, and original
titles on DVD-RWs (VR mode), the recorder edits
actual recordings on the disc. You cannot undo
any edits you make, and the original contents will
be consequently lost.
z Hint
When using a DVD-RW (VR mode), you can keep the
original contents by editing a Playlist (see “Edits for
Playlist titles” below).
Note
Erasing and Editing
Edits for Video mode titles/original
titles
DVD-RW
Erase the last title on the disc.
(Video mode)
For DVD+RWs and DVD-RWs (VR mode), the disc’s
available capacity may not display correctly. The
recorder displays only the available capacity after the last
title on the disc.
Edits for Playlist titles
-RWVR
For DVD-RWs (VR mode), you can edit a Playlist
while retaining original titles (actual recordings on
the disc). A Playlist is a group of Playlist titles
created from the original title for editing purposes.
When you create a Playlist, only the control
information necessary for playback, such as the
playback order, is stored on the disc. Since the
original titles are left unaltered, Playlist titles can
be re-edited.
Example: You have recorded the final few
matches of a football tournament on a DVD-RW
(VR mode). You want to create a digest with the
goal scenes and other highlights, but you also want
to keep the original recording.
,continued
59
In this case, you can select a title or chapter and
create a Playlist title. You can even rearrange the
scene order within the Playlist title (page 65).
z Hint
For DVD-RW (VR mode), you can display the
disc’s Playlist titles in Title List (Playlist), or the
original titles in Title List (Original). Press TITLE
LIST repeatedly to switch the two Title List
menus.

DV Dubbing
Before DV Dubbing
This section explains dubbing with a digital video
camera via the DV IN jack on the front panel. If
you want to dub by way of the LINE IN jacks, see
“Recording From Connected Equipment” (page
45).
To record from the DV IN jack
The DV IN jack on this recorder conforms to the
i.LINK standard. You can connect any other
equipment that has an i.LINK (DV) jack, and
record digital signals.
Follow the instructions in “Connecting a Digital
Video Camera to the DV IN Jack,” and then move
on to the section on dubbing. For more
information about i.LINK, see “About i.LINK”
(page 85).
z Hint
If you plan to do additional editing on a disc after the
initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW
(VR mode).
Connecting a Digital Video
Camera to the DV IN Jack
You can connect a digital video camera to the DV
IN jack on the recorder to record or edit from a
DV/Digital8 format tape. Operation is
straightforward because the recorder will fast
forward and rewind the tape for you – you do not
need to operate your digital video camera. Do the
following to start using the “DV Edit” functions of
this recorder.
See also the instruction manual supplied with the
digital video camera before connecting.
Notes
• The DV IN jack is for input only. It will not output
signals.
• You cannot use the DV IN jack when:
– your digital video camera does not work with this
recorder. Connect the camera to the LINE IN jack
and follow the instructions of “Recording From
Connected Equipment” (page 45).
– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not
connect a MICRO MV format digital video camera
even if it has an i.LINK jack.
– the images on the tape contain copy protection
signals, which limit recording.
• If you want to play the disc on other DVD equipment,
finalize the disc (page 35).

tray. Then press and hold x (stop) on the
recorder for five seconds.
, You are playing a disc recorded in a colour
system that is different from your TV.

Additional Information
,
Re-connect all connecting cords securely.
The connecting cords are damaged.
Check the connection to your TV (page 13).
Switch the input selector on your TV (such as to
“VCR”) so that the signal from the recorder
appears on the TV screen.
If you connect the recorder to your TV via the
LINE 1-TV jack, set the VIDEO OUT SELECT
switch on the rear panel to “RGB” (page 14).
If you connect the recorder to your TV via only
the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks, set the
VIDEO OUT SELECT switch on the rear panel
to “COMPONENT” (page 14).

, A timer recording started, which changed the
channels.
, If the picture output signal from your recorder
passes through your VCR to get to your TV, or if
you are connected to a combination TV/VIDEO
player, the copy-protection signal applied to
some DVD programmes could affect picture
quality. If you still experience this problem even
when you connect your recorder directly to your
TV, try connecting your recorder to your TV’s S
VIDEO input.

About i.LINK
The DV IN jack on this recorder is an i.LINKcompliant DV IN jack. This section describes the
i.LINK standard and its features.
What is i.LINK?
Note
Normally, only one piece of equipment can be connected
to this recorder by the i.LINK cable (DV connecting
cable). When connecting this recorder to i.LINKcompatible equipment having two or more i.LINK jacks
(DV jacks), see the instruction manual of the equipment
to be connected.
About the name “i.LINK”
i.LINK is a more familiar term for IEEE 1394 data
transport bus proposed by SONY, and is a
trademark approved by many corporations.
IEEE 1394 is an international standard
standardized by the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers.
i.LINK’s maximum baud rate varies according to
the equipment. Three maximum baud rates are
defined:
S100 (approx. 100 Mbps*)
S200 (approx. 200 Mbps)
S400 (approx. 400 Mbps)
The baud rate is listed under “Specifications” in
the instruction manual of each equipment. It is
also indicated near the i.LINK jack on some
equipment.
The maximum baud rate of equipment on which it
is not indicated such as this unit is “S100.”
When units are connected to equipment having a
different maximum baud rate, the baud rate
sometimes differs from the indicated baud rate.
*What is Mbps?
Mbps stands for megabits per second, or the amount of
data that can be sent or received in one second. For
example, a baud rate of 100 Mbps means that 100
megabits of data can be sent in one second.
i.LINK functions on this recorder
For details on how to dub when this recorder is
connected to other video equipment having DV
jacks, see page 66.
The DV jack on this recorder can only input DVCSD signals. It cannot output signals. The DV jack
will not accept MICRO MV signals from
equipment such as a MICRO MV digital video
camera with an i.LINK jack.
For further precautions, see the notes on page 66.
For details on precautions when connecting this
recorder, also see the instruction manuals for the
equipment to be connected.
Additional Information
i.LINK is a digital serial interface for handling
digital video, digital audio and other data in two
directions between equipment having the i.LINK
jack, and for controlling other equipment.
i.LINK-compatible pieces of equipment can be
connected by a single i.LINK cable. Possible
applications are operations and data transactions
with various digital AV equipment. When two or
more i.LINK-compatible equipment are
connected to this recorder in a daisy chain,
operations and data transactions are possible with
not only the equipment that this recorder is
connected to but also with other devices via the
directly connected equipment.
Note, however, that the method of operation
sometimes varies according to the characteristics
and specifications of the equipment to be
connected, and that operations and data
transactions are sometimes not possible on some
connected equipment.

Required i.LINK cable
Use the Sony i.LINK 4-pin-to-4-pin cable (during
DV dubbing).

Glossary
Album (page 53)
A unit in which to store MP3 audio tracks on a
DATA CD. (Album is an exclusive definition for
this recorder.)
Chapter (page 52)
Sections of a picture or a music feature that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several
chapters. Depending on the disc, no chapters may
be recorded.
Copy protection signals (page 38)
Copy restriction set by copyright owners, etc.
These signals are included in some software or TV
programmes and restrict recording on this
recorder.
Dolby Digital (page 74)
Digital audio compression technology developed
by Dolby Laboratories. This technology conforms
to multi-channel surround sound. The rear channel
is stereo and there is a discrete subwoofer channel
in this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theater surround sound
systems.
Good channel separation is realized because all of
the channel data is recorded discretely, and little
deterioration occurs because all channel data
processing is digital.
DTS (page 74)
Digital audio compression technology by Digital
Theater Systems, Inc. This technology conforms
to multi-channel surround sound. The rear channel
is stereo and there is a discrete subwoofer channel
in this format. DTS provides the same discrete
channels of high quality digital audio.
Good channel separation is realized because all of
the channel data is recorded discretely, and little
deterioration occurs because all channel data
processing is digital.

DVD+R (page 8)
A DVD+R (read “plus R”) is a recordable disc that
is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can
be recorded only once to a DVD+R, and will have
the same format as a DVD VIDEO.
DVD-R (page 8)
A DVD-R is a recordable disc that is the same size
as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can be recorded only
once to a DVD-R, and will have the same format
as a DVD VIDEO.
DVD+RW (page 8)
A DVD+RW (read “plus RW”) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
DVD-RW (page 8)
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The DVDRW has two different modes: VR mode and Video
mode. DVDs created in Video mode have the
same format as a DVD VIDEO, while discs
created in VR (Video Recording) mode allow the
contents to be programmed or edited.
DVD VIDEO (page 10)
A disc that contains up to eight hours of moving
pictures on a disc the same diameter as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), which is 7
times that of a CD. The data capacity of a doublelayer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a singlelayer and double-sided DVD is 9.4 GB, and
double-layer and double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, which
is a worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 (average) of its original size. The DVD
also uses a variable rate coding technology that
changes the data to be allocated according to the
status of the picture. Audio information is
recorded in a multi-channel format, such as Dolby
Digital, allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such as
the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided on the DVD.
File (page 57)
Track (page 52)
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD. (File is
an exclusive definition for this recorder.) A single
file consist of a single image.
Sections of a picture or a music feature on a
VIDEO CD, CD, or DATA CD (the length of a
song). (Track is an exclusive definition for this
recorder.)
Folder (page 57)
A unit in which to store JPEG image files on a
DATA CD. (Folder is an exclusive definition for
this recorder.)
Interlace format (page 73)
Interlace format shows every other line of an
image as a single “field” and is the standard
method for displaying images on television. The
even number field shows the even numbered lines
of an image, and the odd numbered field shows the
odd numbered lines of an image.
MPEG Audio (page 75)
International standard coding system used to
compress audio digital signals authorized by ISO/
IEC. MPEG 2, used on DVDs, conforms to up to
7.1-channel surround.
Titles actually recorded on a DVD-RW (VR
mode). Erasing original titles frees up disc space.
Playlist (page 59)
Playback information created from the actual
recordings on a DVD-RW (VR mode). A Playlist
leaves the original titles as they are, and contains
only the information needed to control playback.
A Playlist title takes up very little disc space.
Additional Information
Original (page 59)
Progressive format (page 73)
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately
shows every other line of an image (field) to create
one frame, the Progressive format shows the entire
image at once as a single frame. This means that
while the Interlace format can show 25-30 frames/
50-60 fields in one second, the Progressive format
can show 50/60 frames in one second. The overall
picture quality increases and still images, text, and
horizontal lines appear sharper.
Title (page 52)
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.
