Step 1
Select the disc type
Step 3
Recording
There are two different recording methods: Direct
Recording and Timer Recording. Timer recording is
classified as a Date : Once, Daily or Weekly
Recording mode : XP (high quality mode), SP
(standard quality mode), LP (long recording mode),
and EP (extended mode).
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 4
Step 2
Format the disc to start recording
Playing
You can select the title you want to play in a
displayed menu and then immediately start playback.
A DVD 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.
Chapters will be created automatically when you
finalise recording on DVD-RW/-R discs in V mode.
The chapter’s length (interval between chapters)
varies according to the recording mode.
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 DVDVideo format (V 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 V mode disc on various DVD
components. A VR 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.
You can only use either the VR or V mode
Note
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/-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.
on a DVD-RW, but not both at the same
time.
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 6
Finalising & Playing on
other DVD components
Unpacking
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.
When using a DVD-RW disc in V 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.
