Overview (Continued)
About DVD-R and DVD-RW disc
Is editing a DVD like editing a video tape?
How are DVD-R and DVD-RW discs different?
The essential difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW
is that DVD-R is a record-once medium, while DVD-RW
is a re-recordable/erasable medium. You can re-record/
erase a DVD-RW disc approximately 1,000 times.
No. When you edit a video tape you need one video
deck to play the original tape and another to record the
edits. With DVD, you edit by making a ‘Playlist’ of what
to play and when to play it. On playback, the recorder
plays the disc according to the Playlist.
Can I play my recordable discs in a regular DVD
player?
Generally, DVD-R discs and DVD-RW discs recorded in
Video mode are playable in a regular DVD player, but
they must be ‘finalized’ first. This process fixes the contents of the disc to make them readable to other DVD
players as DVD-Video discs.
DVD-RW discs recorded in VR (Video Recording) mode
are playable in some players.
About word ‘Original’ and ‘Playlist’
This indicates a product feature that is capable of playing DVD-RW discs recorded with
Video Recording format.
What are ‘recording modes’?
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 5 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP, MLP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
Video mode recording
• 5 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP, MLP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
ote
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs that was
approved by the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore
experience problems playing recordable DVD discs in
some players. Symptoms include video artifacts, audio
and/or video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this recorder in other players.

Throughout this manual, you will often see the words
Original and Playlist to refer to the actual content and
the edited version.
• Original: content refers to what’s actually recorded on
the disc.
• Playlist: content refers to the edited version of the
disc — how the Original content is to be played.
About DVD+R and DVD+RW disc
How are DVD+R and DVD+RW discs different?
The essential difference between DVD+R and DVD+RW
is that DVD+R is a record-once medium, while
DVD+RW is a re-recordable/erasable medium. You can
re-record/ erase a DVD+RW disc approximately 1,000
times.
DVD+RW mode recording
• 5 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP, MLP)
• Playable on regular DVD players
• The edited contents is playable on regular DVD players only after finalizing
• Recordings can be edited the title/chapter
DVD+R mode recording
• 5 different picture quality/recording time settings available (XP, SP, LP, EP, MLP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Any edited contents are not be compatible on regular
DVD players. (Hide, chapter combine, added chapter
mark, etc.)
• Limited title/chapter editing features
DVD +R (Double Layer)
Double layer recording technology offers two recordable
layers on a single DVD disc, providing nearly double the
capacity of 4.7GB single layer DVDs. The greatest, most
valuable benefit of double layer recording technology is
increased capacity. Storage space is nearly doubled
with double layer DVD+R media, allowing consumers to
burn up to 8.5GB of video on a single DVD+R disc.
Overview (Continued)
About DVD recording
otes
• This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or
CD-RW discs.
• Our company takes no responsibility for recording failure due to power cuts, defective discs, or damage to
the recorder.
• Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can affect
playback and/or recording performance. Please take
proper care of your discs.
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play various kinds of DVD discs: prerecorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW, DVD-R,
DVD-RAM, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format
for DVD-R discs is always “Video format”—the same as
pre-recorded DVD-Video discs. This means that once
finalized, you can play a DVD-R in a regular DVD player.
By default, the DVD-RW disc format is Video format,
though you can change this to Video Recording format,
if required. (Reinitializing the disc will erase the contents
of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc format.
If the disc format is Video Recording format, then the
recording mode is VR mode; if the disc format is Video
mode, then the recording mode is Video mode (except
for DVD-Video, which is not recordable, and so does not
have a recording mode).
Within the recording modes (which are fixed for the
whole disc) are the record settings. These can be
changed as required for each recording and determine
the picture quality and how much space the recording
will take up on the disc.
• The recording times shown are not exact because the
recorder uses variable bit-rate video compression.
This means that the exact recording time will depend
on the material being recorded.
• When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception is
poor or the picture contains interference, the recording times may be shorter.
• If you record still pictures or audio only, the recording
time may be longer.
• The displayed times for recording and time remaining
may not always add up to exactly the length of the
disc.
• The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
• If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change the
recording format (Video mode or VR mode) before
you record anything on the disc. See page 25
(Initialize) for how to do this.
• When using a DVD-R disc, you can keep recording
until the disc is full, or until you finalize the disc.
Before you start a recording session, check the
amount of recording time left on the disc.
• When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode, recording
time available will only increase if you erase the last
title recorded on the disc.
• The Erase Title option in the Title List-Original menu
only hides the title, it does not actually erase the title
from the disc and increase the recording time available (except for the last recorded title on a DVD-RW
disc in Video mode).
• The overwrite recording is available with DVD+RW
disc.
• Even though the recordable time of MLP mode with
DVD+R DL discs is about 11 hours which is similar to
single layer discs, it is because the resolution of
DVD+R DL disc is higher than that of single layer
discs.

Notes for recording
Overview (Continued)
Recording TV audio channels
Remote Control Operation Range
This recorder can record either NICAM or regular audio.
If the NICAM setting (page 21) is set to Auto, then if the
broadcast is NICAM, you can record the NICAM audio.
If the broadcast is non-NICAM, the regular audio is
always recorded.
Point the remote control at the remote sensor and press
the buttons.
Restrictions on video recording
• You cannot record copy-protected video using this
recorder. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Video
discs and some satellite broadcasts. If copy-protected
material is encountered during a recording, recording
will pause or stop automatically and an error message
will be displayed on-screen.
• Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be recorded
using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with CPRM (see
below).
• NTSC format signals from the analog or the DV inputs
is not recorded correctly with this recorder.
• Video signals in SECAM format (from the built-in TV
tuner or from the analog inputs) are recorded in PAL
format.
What is ‘CPRM’?
CPRM is a copy protection system (with scramble system) only allowing the recording of ‘copy once’ broadcast programs. CPRM stands for Content Protection for
Recordable Media.
This recorder is CPRM compatible, which means that

About WMA(Window Media Audio)
A WMA file is a Microsoft audio compression
Technology file.
WMA(Windows Media Audio) offers double the
audio.compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this recorder
is limited as follows:
1. CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660” and
“JOLIET”.
2. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files. We recommend that you use
“Easy-CD Creator”, which creates an ISO 9660 or
JOLIET file system.
3. Total number of files and folders on the disc should
be less than 1999.
This Recorder requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 or WMA files) that require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to ensure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/WMA files and
music from the Internet. Our company has no right
to grant such permission. Permission should always
be sought from the copyright owner.

Notes on JPEG Recordings
Depending on the size and number of the JPEG files,
it may take several minutes to read the contents of
the media. If you don’t see an on-screen display after
several minutes, some of the files are too big —
reduce the resolution of the JPEG files to less than 4
mega pixels and burn another disc.
The total number of files and folders are free but the
total number of files on the folder should be less than
1999.
Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording formats or the condition of the discs.
When you are using software such as “Easy CD
Creator” to burn JPEG files on a CD-R, ensure that all
selected files have the “.jpg” extension before copying
them into the CD layout.
If the files have “.jpe” extensions, please rename them
as “.jpg” files.
File names without the “.jpg” extension
cannot be read by this recorder, even though the files
are shown as JPEG image files in Windows
Explorer®.
Progressive and lossless compression JPEG image
files are not supported.

Title and Chapter Editing
Edits you make to the Original content changes the
actual content of the disc. For example, if you delete a
title or chapter from the Original content (Title or
Chapter), that title or chapter is deleted from the disc,
freeing up extra recording time.
When you edit the Playlist, on the other hand, you are
not changing the content of the disc. For example, when
you delete a title from the Playlist, you are just telling
the recorder not to play that title; nothing is actually
deleted from the disc.
Adding Chapter Markers
Titles, Chapters and Parts
ote
Chapter markers are inserted at regular intervals automatically. You can change this interval from the Initial
Setup menu (see Auto Chapter on page 25).
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or more
chapters. When you insert a title into the Playlist, all the
chapters within that title also appear. In other words,
chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as chapters on a
DVD-Video disc do. Parts are sections of Original or
Playlist titles. From the Original and Playlist menu you
can add or delete parts. Adding a chapter or title to the
Playlist creates a new title made up of a section (ie.,
chapter) of an Original title. Deleting a part removes
part of a title from the Original or Playlist menu.
Caution
• When editing using the Delete, Add and Move functions, the start and end frames may not be exactly as
set in the start and end point display.

pause between edits. This is not a malfunction.

• When the Recorder is moved from a cold place to a
warm place.
• Keep the Recorder plugged into an AC power outlet
with POWER On. This will help prevent condensation.
• Under extremely humid conditions.
• When condensation has occurred, wait a few hours
for the Recorder to dry before using it.
