WIRING: This DVD Recorder is supplied with a BSI 1363
approved 13 amp mains plug, fused at 5 amp. When replacing the fuse always use a 5 amp BS 1362, BSI or ASTA
approved type. Never use this plug with the fuse cover omitted. To obtain a replacement fuse cover contact your dealer.
If the type of plug supplied is not suitable for the mains sockets in your home, then the plug should be removed and a suitable type fitted. Please refer to the wiring instructions below:
WARNING: A mains plug removed from the mains lead of this
DVD Recorder must be destroyed. A mains plug with bared
wires is hazardous if inserted in a mains socket.
Do not connect either wire to the earth pin, marked with the
letter E or with the earth symbol
or coloured green or
green and yellow.
If any other plug is fitted, use a 5 amp fuse, either in the plug,
or at the distribution board.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following codes:
BLUE: NEUTRAL, BROWN: LIVE
As the colours of the
wires in the mains lead of this DVD & HDD Recorder may not
correspond with the coloured marking identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: The wire which is
coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire which is
coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter L or coloured red.

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.)

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.

Generally, DVD-R, DVD+R 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

Note :
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.
Is

DVD like
editing
a

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

DVD
By default, the DVD-RW disc format is
(VR) format, though you can change this to Video 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 them

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.
