Introduction
Features of the CRW2200IX Drive
High speed writing/reading
The CRW2200IX drive supports up to 20X-speed writing of CD-R discs,*1 and up to
10X-speed writing/rewriting of CD-RW discs.*2 Furthermore, the drive supports data
reading and digital audio data extraction at up to 40X speed.
Easy setup
Implementation of an IEEE1394 interface (also known as FireWire or i.LINK)
eliminates the need for drive configurations (device ID, termination, etc.). You can
connect and start using the drive whenever you wish without restarting your
computer.
SafeBurn™ (Enhanced write stability technology)
Generous 8MB of buffer memory
Because of the large data storage area, stable disc writing is possible even at fast
speeds.
Buffer Underrun Protection
When data transfer from the host PC is interrupted, Buffer Underrun Protection is
activated to keep precious CD-R discs from going to waste. (→P. 3)
Optimum Write Speed Control
Before writing to a CD-R, the CRW2200IX drive checks the disc’s capability and
automatically selects the optimum writing speed*3 for greater reliability. The speed
you set is the maximum writing speed.
Reliable writing
Yamaha’s proprietary Pure-Phase Laser System (patent applied for)
This technology reduces phase interference of the laser beam, so that it projects
accurately onto the disc. Jitter value, an important measure of recording quality, has
been improved 25% compared with Yamaha models not using this technology.
Running OPC (Optimum Power Control)
Running OPC automatically adjusts the output of the laser according to the
characteristics of the disc being used. Running OPC provides greatly enhanced
recording reliability for various manufacturer’s discs.

Introduction
High-fidelity digital audio
The CRW2200IX drive supports extraction of digital audio data at up to 40X speed,
as well as the recording of digital sound with complete fidelity even when writing at
20X speed.
CD TEXT support
Information such as the song name or artist name can be recorded on Audio CDs
using CD creation software. The text data on the created disc can be displayed on a
CD player that is compatible with the CD TEXT format.
*1 16X- or 20X-speed writing is enabled with the Partial CAV method. (→P. 7)
*2 10X-speed writing/rewriting is enabled with the CLV method and the 4X-10X Full CAV method. (→P. 8)
*3 The optimal writing speed automatically selected will be between 8X speed and the maximum speed designated
for that disc. If the disc is rated at lower than 8X speed writing, you need to designate the most suitable writing
speed manually.
About IEEE1394
IEEE1394 is an industry standard approved by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers). The serial interface has a broad bandwidth and is fast
enough to transfer large amounts of digital video and audio data bi-directionally
between electronic devices including computer peripherals. Also known as
FireWire and i.LINK, the IEEE1394 interface allows units to transfer data or
various controls over a single IEEE1394 interface cable. Unlike legacy serial
interfaces such as RS-232C, IEEE1394 allows for daisy-chaining devices (serial
connection) with data transfer possible between any two devices on the chain.
IEEE1394 also supports a tree (parallel) connection of devices. In addition to
this flexibility, IEEE1394 also eliminates the need for complicated settings such
as device ID and termination as found with SCSI (Small Computer System
Interface) type interfaces. As of this writing, IEEE1394 supports three different
data transfer rates: 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps, and 400 Mbps.

Introduction
Buffer Underrun Defined
CD-R/RW drives are equipped with buffer memory. This memory temporarily
stores data while a disc is being recorded. When buffer memory becomes empty
(due to unexpected interruptions or the system’s inability to keep up with the
writing process), a writing error occurs. This error is known as a “buffer
underrun error.”

A Buffer Underrun Error will permanently ruin the disc.
Yamaha Buffer Underrun Protection
Buffer Underrun Protection is featured in Yamaha’s CRW2200 series CD-R/
RW drives. When a buffer underrun is about to occur, a buffer underrun error is
prevented by temporarily suspending the writing process. Writing resumes when
enough data has accumulated again in buffer memory. Buffer Underrun
Protection on the CRW2200 series is extremely accurate, resulting in seamless
recording between stop and continuation points.

If data transfer is
interrupted...
Once data transfer
resumes normally...
and buffer memory is
about to empty...

Yamaha Buffer Underrun Protection ensures error-free results.
Test-writing for Buffer Underrun
You can run a check for the likely occurence of Buffer Underrun by Test-writing a CD-RW
disc. The occurrence of a Buffer Underrun depends on your computer system.
Most writing software includes test-writing functions to check the likely occurrence of
Buffer Underrun before actually writing the disc.
Buffer Underrun Protection is set to ON by default. Test-writing is not available in this
setting. To use test-writing with your computer system, the Buffer Underrun Protection
should be set to OFF.

CD-R discs*1
The CRW2200IX drive can write to these discs at 1X, 2X, 4X, 8X, 12X, 16X,
or 20X speed. These discs can be played back in a CD-ROM drive or a CD
player.
Notes
• 16X- or 20X-speed writing is enabled with Partial CAV method. (→P. 7)
• For 8X or faster writing, use CD-R discs that match their respective writing
speeds.
CD-RW discs*2
There are two types of CD-RW discs: those that support write/rewrite speeds
of 1X, 2X, and 4X, and those that support only 2X. The CRW2200IX drive
can write/rewrite at 2X or 4X speed on the first type of disc, and at 2X on the
second type of disc. These discs can be read/played on a device (e.g., CDROM drive) that supports “CD-RW.”
High Speed CD-RW discs*3
These discs allow writing/rewriting at 4X to 10X speeds. The CRW2200IX
drive can write/rewrite these discs at 4X, 8X, or 10X speed. These discs can be
read/played by a CD-RW drive that bears the High Speed CD-RW logo, or by
a device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) that supports “CD-RW.”
Note
10X-speed writing/rewriting is enabled with the CLV method, and the 4X-10X
Full CAV method. (→P. 8)
• In order to write, erase, or read these discs using a CD-R/RW

Before Use
About the Orange Book
The Orange Book standard defines how all recordable discs (including CD-R and CD-RW) are
written. Part 2 of the Orange Book standard relates to CD-R discs, and Part 3 to CD-RW discs.
The standard was named after the color of the book’s cover.
About CD-ROMs
A CD-ROM disc is a compact disc containing high-density read-only data. It has
many applications, including the playback of music and video, the archiving of
data, as well as on-line documentation. The following are descriptions of each
CD-ROM format:
CD-DA: Up to 79 minutes of stereo audio is written in 16-bit resolution at a
sampling rate of 44.1 kHz for a 79 minute disc.
Data CD: Up to 700 megabytes of computer data is stored in standard ISO9660
format for a 700 MB disc.
Video CD: These hold movies in which video and audio data has been
compressed using MPEG-1 technology.
About Partial CAV (Constant Angular Velocity)
Writing to a CD-R disc is normally done using the CLV (Constant Linear
Velocity) method. In this method, the disc rotation speed is adjusted so as to
keep a constant data transfer rate at any portion of the disc. In other words, the
disc rotation speed will vary in CLV writing.
In contrast, the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) method uses a constant disc
rotation speed for all portions of the disc so that the data transfer rate will vary.
Because the CAV method has the advantage of largely increasing the data
transfer rate with a minimum load to the drive’s mechanism (compared to CLV’s
rotation speed adjustment), many current CD-ROM drives use the CAV method.
CD formats define the constant linear density of written data (data should be
written onto the disc at a constant pitch) so that the amount of recorded data per
disc rotation will increase as the writing point moves from the inner to the outer.
In other words, in CAV writing, the outer portion has an increased data transfer
rate.
The CRW2200IX drive uses the CAV method in the inner portions as well as
the CLV method in the outer portions (Partial CAV) in order to enable up to
20X-speed writing. The drive will control the disc rotation speed to start writing
at 12X speed in the inner portions, gradually accelerating up to 20X speed and
maintaining 20X speed in the outer portions.

Before Use
About 10X-speed writing/rewriting of a High Speed CD-RW disc
10X-speed writing/rewriting of a High Speed CD-RW disc is enabled with the
CLV method, and the 4X-10X Full CAV method. Commonly, writing/rewriting
is enabled with the CLV method. When writing/rewriting with packet writing
(→P. 31), you can also select the Full CAV method. For more details, refer to the
documentation that came with your CD writing software. (Make sure that your
CD writing software supports the Full CAV method.) For direct editing of a file
on a CD-RW disc, the Full CAV method is recommended.
Serial Number
Once you have taken the CRW2200IX drive out of its packaging, you should
immediately note down the serial number found at the bottom of the drive with the
bar code. You may need to refer to this number when requesting Customer Support
services. In the box below the following diagram, write down the 10-character serial
number (consisting of 3 letters followed by 7 digits).

Notes on Connecting IEEE1394 Devices
Remember the following notes when connecting the CRW2200IX drive to the host
computer along with other IEEE1394 devices.
● For optimum performance when writing a CD, connect the CRW2200IX drive
directly or solely to the host computer.
● Do not connect or disconnect any IEEE1394 devices while the CRW2200IX
drive is in operation (especially when writing to a disc).
● If there is a slower device connected between the host computer and the
CRW2200IX drive, the data transfer between the CRW2200IX drive and the
host computer will be slowed, which may cause a failure in writing a CD.
● The IEEE1394 ports on the CRW2200IX drive have 6-pin connectors, but do not
supply power (IEEE1394 bus power).
● Do not turn off the CRW2200IX drive while its IEEE1394-connected computer
is turned on. Otherwise, it may cause malfunctions on your computer or other
IEEE1394 devices connected together, depending on the specifications of the
IEEE1394 interface card (host adapter) or the writing software you are using on
the computer.
● Avoid creating a looped connection that sends data output from a device back to
the same device. The illustration below shows an example of such a loop (at the
host computer).

cannot be added later, even if the full capacity of the blank disc has not been used.

Note
The lead-in and lead-out areas signify the beginning and end points of a session. They are not part
of the data but contain information about the session itself. Basically, a session consists of a leadin, data, and a lead-out.
Track-at-Once (TAO)
This mode is used when writing data to a disc one track at a time. More tracks can be
added later if there is enough space left on the disc. This is why Track-at-Once mode
is sometimes referred to as Multisession.

Appendix
Session-at-Once (SAO)
As a writing method that combines the advantages of the above-mentioned “Disc-atOnce” and “Track-at-Once,” you can combine multiple tracks into one session and
write them, and then add additional data.
For example, this is the writing method used to create a CD EXTRA format CD. The
music tracks will be recorded in the first session, and the data will be recorded in the
second session.

Packet Writing
This mode is used when writing to a track of a disc using small blocks of data called
“packets,” in a manner similar to a floppy disk. This mode is useful when making
small incremental backups of data. You will need to use software that specifically
supports packet writing.

Same as writing to floppy or hard disk
Notes on Packet Writing
• Discs must be formatted before they can be used for packet writing. With CD-RW, erased data
can be overwritten until the disc is completely full.
• When using packet writing on a CD-RW disc, the actual data capacity is 100 MB less than that
stated on the cover of the disc. The difference in capacity is dependent on the writing mode.
• With CD-R, the space used by the erased data cannot be reused and is “masked” so that it is no
longer visible. This can be done up to 100 times.
