Notes:
Depending on the conditions of the recording equipment or the CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) disc itself, some
CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) discs cannot be 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

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.

About DVD recording
Notes:
This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or
CD-RW discs.
Our company takes no responsibility for recording
failure due to power outages, 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:
pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs.
The disc format for DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW discs
is always “Video format”—the same as pre-recorded
DVD-Video discs. This means that once finalized, you
can play a DVD-R, DVD+R, or DVD+RW in a regular
DVD player.
By default, the DVD-RW disc format is Video format,
though you can change this to Video Recording (VR)
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.
Notes for recording
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 19
(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
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 Delete 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).
Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute
the Menu-making operation to update the new title
and editing when removing the disc from the recorder
or when turning off the recorder.
Recording time and picture quality
There are four preset recording quality modes:
XP – Highest quality setting, gives about 1 hour
of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
SP – Default quality, sufficient for most applications,
gives about 2 hours of recording time on a DVD
(4.7GB).
LP – Slightly lower video quality, gives about 4
hours of recording time on a DVD disc (4.7GB).
EP – Low video quality, gives about 6 hours of
recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
MLP – The longest recording time with the lowest
video quality, gives about 11 hours of recording time
on a DVD (4.7GB).
Recording
Recording
Notes:
You may see a fragmented picture or distorted
subtitle when playing back the contents recorded in
EP and MLP mode.
If you fully record a recordable DVD disc in MLP
mode with only one title, the recordable time is
limited to 10 hours.
29
Restrictions on copying
Some video material is copy-once protected: If you
want to record copy-once protected material to DVD,
you must use a VR mode DVD-RW disc compatible
with CPRM Ver. 1.1.
NTSC format signals from the analog input are 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.
Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be recorded
using DVD-RW disc in VR mode with CPRM (see
below).

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
you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but
you cannot then make a copy of those recordings.
CPRM recordings can only be made on DVD-RW
discs formatted in VR mode, and CPRM recordings
can only be played on players that are specifically
compatible with CPRM.

Title List and Chapter List Menu
Overview
Using the Title List menu you can edit video content.
The editing features available in the Title List menu
depend on whether you are editing video on DVD,
and whether you’re editing Original content, or a
Playlist.
There are two ways to edit VR mode DVD-RW discs.
You can directly edit the Original content of the disc,
or you can create and edit a Playlist. The Playlist
doesn’t actually change any of the content on the
disc, but just controls how the content is played back.
1. Press MENU/LIST to display the Title List menu.
Playback should be stopped when you do this.
You can also access it using HOME menu,
select [Movie] option then select [DISC] option
and press ENTER.
When selecting titles, use the v / V buttons to
display the previous/next page if there are more
than six titles.
If you are editing a VR mode disc, press
MENU/LIST to switch between Original and
Playlist menu.

VR Mode: Original and Playlist
Editing
Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you insert a disc’s 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.
During Playlist playback, you may notice a
momentary pause between edits. This is not a
malfunction.
Is editing a DVD like editing a video
tape?
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.
Adding Chapter Markers
-RWVR
+RW
+R
You can create chapters within a title by inserting

During recording or playing back, at the point you
want to start a new chapter, press CHP ADD.
A chapter marker icon appears on the TV screen.
