Notes:
recording equipment or the CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) disc itself, some
played on the unit.
Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the labeled side or the recorded side) of a disc.
Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heart-shaped or octagonal). Doing so may result in malfunctions.
Depending on the recording software & the finalization, some recorded discs (CD-R/RW or DVD±R/RW) may
not be playable.
DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and CD-R/RW discs recorded using a personal computer or a DVD or CD Recorder
may not play if the disc is damaged or dirty, or if there is dirt or condensation on the Recorder's lens.
If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a compatible format, there are cases
in which it may not play because of the settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check
with the software publisher for more detailed information.)
This recorder requires discs and 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) and these require certain preexisting conditions (see above) to ensure compatible playback.
Customers should 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.

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

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 20 (Initialize) for how to do this.
When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can keep
recording until the disc is full, or until you finalize the
