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.

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.
