How to use the DVD Recorder-VCR
This unit can record on the following types of discs.
If you want to repeatedly record on the same disc or you want
to edit the disc after recording, select a rewritable DVD-RW
or DVD-RAM type disc. If you want to save a recording
without any changes, choose a non-rewritable DVD-R.
Step 2. Format the disc to start recording
Unlike a VCR, the recorder automatically starts formatting when an unused disc is inserted.
This is required for the preparation of recording on a disc.
Using a DVD-RAM
This type of disc can be formatted in DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode). You can edit
recorded images and create a playlist in a specific sequence according to your requirements.
Using a DVD-RW
This type of disc can be formatted in either DVD-Video format (Video mode) or DVD-Video
Recording format (VR mode). For an unused disc, a message that asks whether to format in VR
Mode or not is displayed. You can play a video mode disc on various DVD components. AVR
mode disc allows more varied editing.
Using a DVD-R
This type of disc can be formatted in DVD Video format. After formatting is complete, you can
record on the disc. You can play this type of disc on various DVD components only when they
have been finalised.
Note
• You can only use one format on a DVD-RW.
• You can change the DVD-RW format to another format. It should be
noted that the data of the disc may be lost when changing formats.
Step 3. Recording
There are two different recording methods: Direct Recording and Timer Recording. Timer
recording is classified as recording type : Once, Daily or Weekly or recording mode : XP (high
quality mode), SP (standard quality mode), LP (long recording mode), and EP (extended mode)
according to the recording mode.
Step 4. Playing
You can select the title you want to play in a displayed menu and then immediately start
playback. ADVD consists of sections, called titles, and sub sections, called chapters.
During recording, a title is created between two points where you start and stop recording,
DVD-RW/DVD-R discs(in Video mode) can automatically create chapters according to the
recording mode when finalised.
Step 5. Editing a recorded disc
Editing on discs is easier than conventional video tapes. The recorder supports many different
edit functions, possible only with DVDs.
With a simple and easy edit menu, you can operate various edit functions, such as delete,
copy, rename, lock, etc., on a recorded title.
Creating a playlist (DVD-RAM/DVD-RW in VR mode)
With this recorder, you can create a new playlist on the same disc and edit it without the
change of the original recording.
Step 6. Finalising & Playing on other DVD components
To play your DVD on other DVD components, finalising may be necessary. First, finish all
editing and recording operations, then finalise the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in VR Mode
Although finalising is generally unnecessary when playing the disc on a VR Mode compatible
component, a finalised disc should be used for playback on that type of component.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video Mode
The disc should be finalised first to enable playback on anything other than this recorder. No
more editing or recording can be made on the disc once it has been finalised.
To enable recording on the disc again, Disc should be unfinalised.
When using a DVD-R disc
You should finalise the disc to play it on a component other than this recorder. You cannot edit
or record on the disc once it has been finalised.
