Automatic conversion of digital sampling rates
during recording
A built-in sampling rate converter automatically
converts the sampling frequency of various digital
sources to the 44.1 kHz sampling rate of your MD deck.
This allows you to record sources such as 32- and 48-
kHz DAT or satellite broadcasts, as well as compact
discs and other MDs.
Notes |
* If “Din Unlock” or “Cannot Copy” appears in the display,
recording through the digital connector is not possible.
In this case, record the program source through the LINE |
(ANALOG) IN jacks with INPUT set to ANALOG. ~~
* When recording through the DICITAL IN connector, you...
cannot adjust the recording level. |

Notes on Recording
If “Protected” appears in the display
The MD is record-protected. Close the slot to record on the
disc (see “To protect an MD against accidental erasure” on
page 7). |
If “Din Unlock” flashes in the display .
* The digital program source is not connected as you set
with INPUT in Step 4 on page 6.
To continue, connect the program source properly.
* The program source is not on.
Turn on the program source.
Depending on source being recorded, track numbers are
marked in following ways:
* When recording from a CD or MD with INPUT at
DIGITAL and the source connected through DIGITAL IN:
The deck automatically marks track numbers in the same
sequence as the original. If, however, a track is repeated
two or more times (e.g. by single-track repeat play) or two
or more tracks with the same track number (e.g. from
ditferent MDs or CDs) are played, the track or tracks are
recorded as part of a single, continuous track with a single
track number.
If the source is an MD, track numbers may not be marked
for tracks of less than 4 seconds.
When recording from source connected through LINE
(ANALOG) IN with INPUT at ANALOG, and “LEVEL-
SYNC” does not light up (see “Marking Track Numbers
While Recording” on page 12) or when recording from
DAT or satellite broadcasts connected through DIGITAL
IN with INPUT at DIGITAL:
The source will be recorded as a single track. You can
divide the track afterwards using the Divide Function (see
“Dividing Recorded Tracks” on page 24) or mark track
numbers during recording by using the Track Marking
Function on page 12.
If "LEVEL-SYNC" appears in the display, the deck
automatically marks track numbers when recording
analog source or digital recording of DAT or satellite
broadcasts (see “Marking track numbers automatically”
on page 12).
* When recording from DAT or satellite broadcasts with
INPUT at DIGITAL, the deck automatically marks a track
number whenever the sampling frequency of the input
signal changes.
When “TOC” flashes in the display
The deck is currently updating the Table Of Contents (TOC).
Do not move the deck or pull out the AC power cord.
Changes to an MD made through recording are saved only
when you update the TOC by ejecting the MD or changing
the deck to standby by pressing POWER.
The MD deck uses the SCMS (Serial Copy Management **
System on page 33)
MDs recorded through digital input connector cannot be
copied onto other MDs or DAT tapes through the digital
output connector.
When recording digital signals that have been emphasized
(in the higher frequencies) a
The signal is automatically de-emphasized (with attenuation
proportional to the degree of emphasis) and the level of the
de-emphasized signal is indicated on the peak level meters.
When the deck is recording or in recording pause, digital
signals input through DIGITAL IN are output to DIGITAL
OUT with the same sampling rate.
To change the digital input signal to another sampling rate
for output (without recording it to an MD), use Input
Monitor Function (see page 10).

2 Seconds of Prestored Audio
Data (Time Machine Recording)
When recording from an FM or satellite broadcast, the
first few seconds of material are often lost due to the
time it takes you to ascertain the contents and press the
record button. To prevent the loss of this material, the
Time Machine Recording Function constantly stores 2
seconds of the most recent audio data in a buffer
memory so that when you begin recording the
program source, the recording actually begins with the
2 seconds of audio data stored in the buffer memory in
advance, as shown in the illustration below:

Notes on Editing BE
You can edit the recorded tracks after recording, using
the following functions:
* Erase Function allows you to erase recorded tracks
simply by specifying the corresponding track
number.
* Divide Function allows you to divide tracks at
specified points so that you can quickly locate those
points afterwards, using the AMS function.
Combine Function allows you to combine two
consecutive tracks into one.
Move Function allows you to change the order of
tracks by moving a specific track to a track position
you want,
Title Function allows you to create titles for your
recorded MDs and tracks.
If “Protected” appears in the display
The deck could not edit because the record-protect slot on
the MD is open. Edit after closing the slot.
When “TOC” flashes in the display
Do not move the deck or pull out the AC power cord. After
editing, “TOC” lights continuously until you eject the MD or
turn off the power. “TOC” flashes while the deck is

Erasing a single track
You can erase a track simply by specifying the
respective track number. When you erase a track, the
total number of tracks on the MD decreases by one and
all tracks following the erased one are renumbered.
Since erasing merely updates the TOC, there is no need
to record over material.
e To avoid confusion when erasing multiple tracks, you
should proceed in order of high to low track number to
prevent the renumbering of tracks that have not been
erased yet.

Display Messages
The following table explains the various messages that
appear in the display.
Message Meaning
Blank Disc A new (blank) or erased MD has been
inserted.
Cannot Copy An attempt was made to make a second
copy from a digitally dubbed MD (see
page 33).
Cannot EDIT An attempt was made to edit the MD
during Program or Shuffle Play.
Disc Error The MD is scratched or missing a TOC.
Erase all tracks on a new recordable MD
before use (see “Erasing all tracks on an
MD” on page 23).
Disc Full The MDis full (see “System Limitations”
on this page).
Impossible An attempt was made to combine tracks
while playing back the first track.
Name Full The titling capacity of the MD has reached
its limit (about 1,700 characters).
NO DISC There is no MD in the deck.
No Track The inserted MD has a disc title but no
tracks.
Protected The inserted MD is record-protected.
Retry The first recording attempt failed due to a
disturbance or scratch on the MD, and a
second attempt is being made.
Retry Error Due to vibrations to the deck or scratches
on the MD, several recording attempts
were made but with no success.
Sorry An attempt was made to combine tracks
that cannot be combined.
STANDBY The contents recorded by timer have
(flashing) disappeared over time and are not be
available for saving to disc, or Program
Play could not be activated since the
program has disappeared over time.
System Limitations
The recording system in your MiniDisc deck is
radically different from those used in cassette and DAT
decks and is characterized by the limitations described
below. Note, however, that these limitations are due to
the inherent nature of the MD recording system itself
and not to mechanical causes.
“Disc Full” lights up even before the MD has reached the
maximum recording time (60 or 74 minutes)
When 255 tracks have been recorded on the MD, “Disc Full”
lights up regardless of the total recorded time. More than
255 tracks cannot be recorded on the MD. To continue
recording, erase unnecessary tracks or use another
recordable MD.
"Disc Full” lights up before the maximum number of
tracks is reached
Fluctuations in emphasis within tracks are sometimes
interpreted as track intervals, incrementing the track count
and causing “Disc Full” to light up.
The remaining recording time does not increase even
after erasing numerous short tracks
Tracks under 12 seconds in length are not counted and so
erasing them may not lead to an increase in the recording
time.
Some tracks cannot be combined with others
Track combination may become impossible when tracks are
edited.
The total recorded time and the remaining time on the
MD may not total the maximum recording time (60 or
74 minutes)
Recording is done in minimum units of 2 seconds each, no
matter how short the material. The contents recorded may
thus be shorter than the maximum recording capacity. Disc
space may also be further reduced by scratches. |
Tracks created through editing may exhibit sound dropout
during search operations. .
Track numbers are not recorded correctly
Incorrect assignment or recording of track numbers may
result (1) when CD tracks are divided into several smaller
tracks during digital recording, or (2) while recording certain
CDs with the "LEVEL-SYNC” indication on (i.e., the
automatic track marking function on).
= ен о = пенек
"TOC Reading” appears for a long time
If the inserted recordable MD is brand new, “TOC Reading”
appears in the display longer than for MDs that have been
used.
Limitations when recording over an existing track
* The correct remaining recording time may not be
displayed.
¢ You may find it impossible to record over a track if that
track has been recorded over several times already. If this
happens, erase the track using the Erase Function (see
page 22).
* The remaining recording time may be shortened out of
proportion to the total recorded time.
Recording over a track to eliminate noise is not
recommended since this may shorten the duration of the
track.
* You may find it impossible to label a track while recording
over it.
The correct recarded/playing time may not be displayed
during playback of monaural-format MDs.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following difficulties while
using the deck, use this troubleshooting guide to help you
remedy the problem. Should any problem persist, consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
The deck does not operate or operates poorly.
=p The MD may be damaged (“Disc Error” appears).
Take the MD out and insert it again. It “Disc Error”
remains, replace the MD.
The deck does not play back.
wp Moisture has formed inside the deck. Take the MD
out and leave the deck in a warm place for several
hours until the moisture evaporates.
=P The deck is not on. Press POWER to turn the deck
on.
=p The MD is inserted in the wrong direction. Slide the
MD into the disc compartment with the label side up
and the arrow pointing towards the opening until
the deck grips it.
> The MD may not be recorded (the music calendar
does not appear). Replace the disc with one that has
been recorded.
Additional Information
The deck does not record. >» . Cm
=p The MD is record-protected (“Protected” appears). -
Close the record-protect slot (see page 7).
=P The deck is not connected properly to the sound
source. Make connections properly to the sound
source.
> The recording level is not adjusted properly (in case
of input through LINE (ANALOG) IN). Turn REC
LEVEL to adjust the recording level properly (see
page 11).
=P A premastered MD is inserted. Replace it with a
recordable MD.
=p There is not enough time left on the MD. Replace it
with another recordable MD with fewer recorded
tracks, or erase unnecessary tracks.
=p There has been a power failure or the AC power
cord has been disconnected during recording. Data
recorded to that point may be lost. Repeat the
recording procedure.
The deck does not work during synchro-recoding.
=p The currently selected CD player type (CD player or
video CD player) does not match the CD player
being used. Reset the CD plaver type (see page 14).
The sound has a lot of static.
= Strong magnetism from a television or a similar
device is interfering with operations. Move the deck
away from the source of strong magnetism.
Note
If the deck does not operate properly even after you've
attempted the prescribed remedies, turn off the power, then
reinsert the plug into the power outlet.

2 You can record the digital input signal of a digital satellite
broadcast onto a DAT tape or recordable MD via the
digital input jack on the DAT or MD deck which is capable
of handling a sampling frequeny of 32 kHz or 48 kHz.
You can then record the contents of this recorded DAT
tape or MD (first-generation) onto another DAT tape or
recordable MD via digital input jack on the DAT or MD
deck to create a second-generation digital copy.
Subsequent recording from the second-generation copy
onto another recordable DAT tape or MD is possible only
through the analog input jack on the DAT or MD deck.
Note, however, that on some BS tuners, second-generation
digital copying may not be possible.
