Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the recorder
and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.
On power sources
• Operate the recorder only on
120 V AC, 60 Hz.
• The recorder is not disconnected
from the AC power source as long
as it is connected to the wall outlet,
even if the recorder itself has been
turned off.
• Install this system so that the
power cord can be unplugged from
the wall socket immediately in the
event of trouble.
• If you are not going to use the
recorder for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the recorder from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself;
never pull the cord.
On placement
• Place the recorder in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the
recorder.
• If the recorder is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location, or
is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the recorder and
cause damage to the video head,
tape, and the optical block. Should
this occur, the recorder may not
operate properly. When you first
install the recorder, or when you
move it from a cold to a warm
location, remove the disc and tape
and leave the recorder turned on
for about three hours before
operating the recorder.
• Do not place the recorder on a soft
surface such as a rug that might
block the ventilation holes.
• Do not place the recorder in a
confined space such as a bookshelf
or similar unit.
• Do not place the recorder in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place the recorder in an
inclined position. It is designed to
be operated in a horizontal
position only.
• Keep the recorder, discs, and
cassettes away from equipment
with strong magnets, such as
microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
recorder.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do
not place objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, on the
apparatus.
• When you move the recorder, take
out any discs. If you do not, the
disc may be damaged.
On recording
• Contents of the recording cannot
be compensated for if the
recording or playback is not made
due to a malfunction of the
recorder, disc, etc.
• Make trial recordings before
making the actual recording.
Copyrights
• Television programs, films, video
tapes, discs, and other materials
may be copyrighted. Unauthorized
recording of such material may be
contrary to the provisions of the
copyright laws. Also, use of this
recorder with cable television
transmission may require
authorization from the cable
television transmitter and/or
program owner.
• This product incorporates
copyright protection technology
that is protected by U.S. patents
and other intellectual property
rights. Use of this copyright
protection technology must be
authorized by Macrovision, and is
intended for home and other
limited viewing uses only unless
otherwise authorized by
Macrovision. Reverse engineering
or disassembly is prohibited.
Copy guard function
Since the recorder has a copy guard
function, programs received through
an external tuner (not supplied) may
contain copy protection signals
(copy guard function) and as such
may not be recordable, depending
on the type of signal.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This recorder is capable
of holding a still video image or
on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If
you leave the still video image or
on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period
of time you risk permanent
damage to your television screen.
Plasma display panels and
projection televisions are
especially susceptible to this.
If you have any questions or
problems concerning your recorder,
please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.

settings of the recorder.
Notes
• Plug cords securely to prevent unwanted noise.
• See the instructions supplied with the components to be
connected.
• You cannot connect this recorder to a TV that does not
have a video input jack.
• Be sure to disconnect the power cord of each
component before connecting. Do not connect the
power cord until you reach “Connecting the Power

Step 1: Unpacking
Check that you have the following items:
• Audio/video cord
(phono plug × 3 y phono plug × 3) (1)
• Remote commander (remote) (1)
• Set top box controller (1)
• Size AA (R6) batteries (2)
Step 2: Connecting the
Cable Box/Satellite
Receiver (Tuner)
This recorder does not include a TV tuner.
To record TV programs on this recorder, you need
to connect the recorder to a tuner that has audio/
video output jacks.
If you have been using your VCR connected to an

to record TV programs.
You cannot record on this recorder if you have:
– a cable box or satellite receiver without audio/
video outputs.
– cable with no cable box.
– antenna only (no cable TV).
In the cases above, contact your cable service or
satellite service company to see if they can
provide you with a compatible cable box or
satellite receiver.
Using the cable box/satellite
receiver control function
This function allows the recorder to control a
cable box or satellite receiver via the supplied set
top box controller. You can also use the recorder’s
remote control to change channels on the cable
box/satellite receiver whenever the cable box/
satellite receiver and the recorder are turned on.
To use the cable box/satellite receiver control
function, you need to:
– Check the brand code of your cable box/satellite
receiver. See “Cable Box/Satellite Receiver
Brand Code” (page 121).
– Connect the set top box controller (page 13).
– Set the brand code number and the recorder’s
input that is connected to the cable box/satellite
receiver (page 23).
After setting up the cable box/satellite receiver
control, check that the recorder can correctly
control the cable box or satellite receiver
(page 26).

Note on playback operations of DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs
Some playback operations of DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs may be intentionally set by software
producers. Since this recorder plays DVD
VIDEOs/VIDEO CDs according to the disc
contents the software producers designed, some
playback features may not be available. Also, see
the instructions supplied with the DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs.
Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side with
digital audio material on the other side.
However, since the audio material side does not
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard,
playback on this product is not guaranteed.
Region code (DVD VIDEO only)
Your recorder has a region code printed on the rear
of the unit and will only play DVD VIDEOs
(playback only) labeled with identical region
codes. This system is used to protect copyrights.
DVD VIDEOs labeled ALL will also play on this
recorder.
If you try to play any other DVD VIDEO, a
message will appear on the TV screen to indicate
that the disc is not playable. Depending on the
DVD VIDEO, no region code indication may be
labeled even though playing the DVD VIDEO is
prohibited by area restrictions.
Note on DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/DVDRs, or CD-RWs/CD-Rs recorded on other
equipment
Some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/DVDRs, or CD-RWs/CD-Rs cannot be played on this
recorder due to the recording quality or physical
condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the
recording device and authoring software. The disc
will not play if it has not been correctly finalized.
For more information, see the operating
instructions for the recording device.
Notes
• You cannot mix VR mode and Video mode on the same
DVD-RW or DVD-R. To change the DVD-RW’s
format, reformat the disc (page 67). Note that a disc’s
contents will be erased after reformatting.
• You cannot shorten the time required for recording
even with high-speed discs. Also, you cannot record on
the disc if the disc is not 1x speed compatible.
• It is recommended that you use discs with “For Video”
printed on their packaging.
• You cannot add new recordings to DVD-RWs (Video
mode), DVD+Rs, or DVD-Rs (Video mode) recorded
on other equipment.
• You may not be able to further record on a DVD+RW
recorded on other equipment. Note that recording on
such discs may cause the recorder to rewrite the DVD
menu.
• If the disc contains PC data unrecognizable by this
recorder, the data may be erased.

Notes on playing DTS soundtracks on a CD
When playing DTS-encoded CDs, excessive noise
will be heard from the analog stereo jacks. To
avoid possible damage to the audio system, the
consumer should take proper precautions when
the analog stereo jacks of the recorder are
connected to an amplification system. To enjoy
DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an external
5.1-channel decoder system must be connected to
the digital jack of the recorder.
Notes on playing DVDs with a DTS soundtrack
Notes
• If you pause playback of a CD, or DATA CD/DATA
DVD containing MP3 audio tracks, playback will not
start until you press H PLAY or X PAUSE.
• Sound will be interrupted during Scan Audio
(page 38).
DTS audio signals are output only through the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (COAXIAL or
OPTICAL)/HDMI OUT jack.
When you play a DVD with DTS soundtracks, set
“Digital Out” – “DTS” to “On” of “Audio” in the
“Setup” display (page 98).
If you connect the recorder to audio equipment
without a DTS decoder, do not set “DTS” to “On”
in “Audio” setup. A loud noise (or no sound) may
come out from the speakers, which might disturb
your ears or cause damage to the speakers.

Recording mode and recording time
DVD Recording
The following table is an approximate guide for
the recording time on a single DVD (4.7 GB).
Before Recording
Recording mode
Before you start recording…
HQ (High quality)
• This recorder can record on various disc types.
Select the disc type according to your needs
(page 30).
• Check that the disc has enough available space
for the recording (page 44). For DVD+RWs or
DVD-RWs, you can free up disc space by
erasing titles (page 57).
• Check that the recorder is connected to a tuner
such as a cable box or satellite receiver
(page 12). See also the tuner’s instruction
manual.
z Hint
To play a disc recorded with this recorder on other
equipment, finalize the disc (page 88).
Notes
• Timer recordings will start with or without the recorder
turned on. The recorder automatically turns off after a
recording has finished.
• This recorder records at ×1 speed.
Recording mode
Like the SP or EP recording mode of VCRs, this
recorder has eight different recording modes.
Select a recording mode according to the time and
picture quality you need. For example, if picture
quality is your top priority, select “HQ” (high
quality). If recording time is your priority, “SLP”
can be a possible choice.
Press REC MODE repeatedly to switch the
recording modes.
I want to record with the
best possible picture
quality, so I’ll select HQ.

z Hint
The approximate recording time for DVD+R DL
(Double Layer) discs is as follows:
HQ: 1 hour 48 minutes
HSP: 2 hours 42 minutes
SP: 3 hours 37 minutes
LSP: 4 hours 31 minutes
ESP: 5 hours 25 minutes
LP: 7 hours 14 minutes
EP: 10 hours 51 minutes
SLP: 14 hours 28 minutes
Notes
• When in a recording mode other than HQ, the recorder
compresses the audio/video data before recording.
Since the compression rate needs to decrease for fastmoving images or if picture noise is present, recorded
data size increases, and available recording time
becomes shorter. When recording such pictures, a
recording mode offering longer recording time is
recommended.
• Situations below may cause inaccuracies with the
recording time.
– Recording fast-moving or images containing picture
noise.
– Recording a program with poor reception, or a
program or video source of low picture quality
– Recording on a disc that has already been edited
– Recording only a still picture or just sound
• Since the recording mode for recorded titles is
calculated after sampling the recorded data during
playback, it may be displayed differently from the
mode you selected when recording. However, the
actual recording itself is correctly made in the selected
mode.

Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc types. Before you edit, check the disc
type in the front panel display, and select the
option available for your disc (page 30).
Notes
• You may lose the edited contents if you remove the disc
or a timer recording starts while editing.
• You cannot edit recordings on DVD-RWs (Video
mode), DVD+Rs, or DVD-Rs (Video mode) recorded
on other DVD equipment.

-RVideo
You can perform simple edits. Since Video mode
titles are actual recordings on the disc, you cannot
undo any edits you make. The edit functions
available for Video mode titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 60).
– Erasing a title (page 57).
– Setting protection against erasure (DVD+RWs
only) (page 57).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase)
(DVD+RWs only) (page 58).
– Dividing a title (DVD+RWs only) (page 59).
Notes
• Once the disc is finalized, you cannot edit or record on
the disc (except for DVD+RWs).
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
-RWVR
You can enjoy advanced edit functions. First you
have two options for a DVD-RW (VR mode) and
DVD-R (VR mode): editing either the original
recording (called the “original”), or the playback
information created from the original (called a
“Playlist”). Since each is different in nature and
offers different merits, read the following and
select the one that better suits your needs.
To edit original titles
Edits made to the original titles are final. If you
plan to retain an unaltered original recording,
create and edit a Playlist (see below). The edit
functions available for original titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 60).
– Erasing a title (page 57).
– Erasing a chapter (page 58).
– Setting protection against erasure (page 57).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 58).
– Dividing a title (page 59).
To create and edit Playlist titles
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.
If you erase an original title used in a Playlist, that
Playlist is also erased.
Example: You have recorded the final few
matches of a soccer 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.
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com Sherwood Manuals
56
-RVR
In this case, you can compile highlight scenes as a
Playlist title. You can even rearrange the scene
order within the Playlist title. See “Editing a
Playlist” on page 63.
The advanced edit functions available for Playlist
titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 60).
– Erasing a title (page 57).
– Erasing a chapter (page 58).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 58).
– Editing a Playlist scene (page 63).
– Dividing a title (page 59).
– Combining titles (page 64).

initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW
(VR mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Note that erasing
unwanted scenes does not free up disc space for DVD-Rs
(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/D8 format tape. Operation is straightforward
because the DVD 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/D8 Edit”
functions of this recorder.
See the instruction manual supplied with the
digital video camera as well 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 Another
VCR or Similar Device” on page 54.
– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not
connect a MICROMV format digital video camera
even if it has an i.LINK jack.
– the images on the tape contain copy protection
signals, which limit recording.

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?
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.
Note
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 90.
The DV jack on this recorder can only input DVCSD signals. It cannot output signals. The DV jack
will not accept MICROMV signals from

Glossary
DVD-RW (page 30)
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.
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.
Copy protection signals (page 47)
DVD+R (page 30)
Copy restriction set by copyright owners, etc.
These signals are included in some software or TV
programs and restrict recording on this recorder.
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.
Chapter (page 40)
Dolby Digital (page 98)
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 98)
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+RW (page 30)
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-R (page 30)
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. The DVD-R 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 33)
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.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
(page 16)
HDMI is an interface that supports both video and
audio on a single digital connection. The HDMI
connection carries standard to high definition
video signals and multi-channel audio signals to
AV components such as HDMI equipped TVs, in
digital form without degradation.
The HDMI specification supports HDCP (Highbandwidth Digital Contents Protection), a copy
protection technology that incorporates coding
technology for digital video signals.
Track (page 40)
Sections of a music feature on a CD (the length of
a song).
Interlace format
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.
Original (page 56)
Titles actually recorded on a DVD-RW (VR
mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Erasing original
titles frees up disc space on DVD-RWs.
Playlist (page 56)
Playback information created from the actual
recordings on a DVD-RW (VR mode) or DVD-R
(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.
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 30 frames/60
fields in one second, the Progressive format can
show 60 frames in one second. The overall picture
quality increases and still images, text, and
horizontal lines appear sharper.
Additional Information
Progressive format (page 97)
Title (page 40)
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.

Conexión de la grabadora
Notas
• Enchufe los cables firmemente para prevenir
perturbaciones no deseadas.
• Consulte las instrucciones suministradas con los
componentes que va a conectar.
• No es posible conectar la grabadora a un televisor que
no disponga de toma de entrada de video.
• Asegúrese de desconectar el cable de alimentación de
cada componente antes de realizar las conexiones. No
conecte el cable de alimentación hasta haber llegado al
apartado “Conexión del cable de alimentación” en la
página 8.

elementos:
• Cable de audio/video
(clavija fono × 3 y clavija fono × 3) (1)
• Mando a distancia (1)
• Controlador del decodificador (1)
• Pilas de tamaño AA (R6) (2)
Paso 2: Conexión del
decodificador de cable/
receptor vía satélite
(sintonizador)
Utilización de la función de control
del decodificador de cable/receptor
vía satélite
Conexiones y ajustes
Siga los pasos del 1 al 6 para conectar y realizar
los ajustes de la grabadora.
No es posible grabar en esta grabadora si tiene:
– un decodificador de cable o un receptor vía
satélite sin salidas de audio/video.
– cable sin decodificador de cable.
– sólo antena (sin cable de televisión).
En los casos mencionados anteriormente, póngase
en contacto con la empresa suministradora para
consultar si podrían proporcionarle un
decodificador de cable o un receptor vía satélite
compatible.
Esta función permite que la grabadora controle el
decodificador de cable o el receptor vía satélite
mediante el controlador del decodificador
suministrado. También es posible utilizar el
mando a distancia de la grabadora para cambiar
canales en el decodificador de cable/receptor vía
satélite, siempre que ambos estén encendidos.
Para utilizar la función de control del
decodificador de cable/receptor vía satélite, es
necesario:
– comprobar el código de marca del decodificador
de cable/receptor vía satélite. Consulte “Cable
Box/Satellite Receiver Brand Code” en el
manual de instrucciones en inglés (página 121).
– conectar el controlador del decodificador
(página 4).
– ajustar el número del código de marca y la
entrada de la grabadora que está conectada al
decodificador de cable/receptor vía satélite
(página 9).
Una vez configurado el control del decodificador
de cable/receptor vía satélite, compruebe que la
grabadora controla correctamente el dispositivo
en cuestión (página 11).
Esta grabadora no incluye un sintonizador de
televisión.
Para grabar programas de televisión con este
dispositivo, es necesario conectarlo a un
sintonizador que tenga tomas de salida de audio/
video.
Si ha estado utilizando la videograbadora
conectada a una antena, conecte esta grabadora a
la videograbadora mediante un cable de audio/
video. De este modo, podrá grabar programas de
televisión.

El tiempo de grabación aproximado para los discos

continuación:
HQ: 1 hora y 48 minutos
HSP: 2 horas y 42 minutos
SP: 3 horas y 37 minutos

Grabación de DVD
Esta grabadora dispone de ocho modos de
grabación distintos, al igual que los modos de
grabación SP o EP de las videograbadoras.
Seleccione el modo de grabación en función del
tiempo y la calidad de imagen deseada. Por
ejemplo, si la calidad de la imagen es su principal
prioridad, seleccione el modo “HQ” (alta calidad).
Si su principal prioridad es el tiempo de grabación,
el modo “SLP” puede ser su alternativa.
HSP
SP (Modo estándar)
Notas
• En modos de grabación distintos a HQ, la grabadora
comprime los datos de audio/video antes de la
grabación. Dado que las escenas de movimientos
rápidos o la existencia de ruido en la imagen requieren
que las tasas de compresión disminuyan, el tamaño de
los datos grabados aumenta y el tiempo de grabación
disponible se acorta. En la grabación de estas
imágenes, se recomienda un modo de grabación que
proporcione un tiempo de grabación más largo.
• Los siguientes casos pueden producir inexactitudes en
el tiempo de grabación.
– Grabación de imágenes con ruido de imagen o
escenas de movimiento rápido.
– Grabación de un programa con recepción defectuosa,
o una fuente de programa o video con imagen de baja
calidad
– Grabación en un disco ya editado
– Grabación de imágenes fijas o sonido únicamente
• Debido a que el modo de grabación de títulos grabados
se calcula después del muestreo de datos grabados
durante la reproducción, es posible que se muestre
diferente del modo que seleccionó durante la
grabación. Sin embargo, la grabación real se realizó
correctamente en el modo seleccionado.
