Some useful information about MDs and CDs
Types of MDs
Glossary of terms
Analog
This is the method that phonographic records and cassettes use to
handle sound signals.
Shutter
Prerecorded MDs
These discs are for
playback only.
Recording MDs
Apart from the time limitations, it is
possible to record up to 254 tracks on an
MD.
Recording on MDs
MDs are different to tapes
MDs give you control over how tracks are recorded and editing functions
allow you to change the contents of an MD after recording.
Unlike cassettes, you do not need to find an empty space to start
recording as all recordings start from the first available space. When the
MD fills up, you can use the editing functions to erase unneeded tracks.
You cannot record over tracks.
Limitations on digital recording
The serial copy management system (SCMS) prevents unlimited
recording of digital material.
Clear, relatively intact, digital recordings can be made when recording a
CD in this unit. So to protect the rights of the producer of the original
material, it is not possible to make a further recording from that MD to
another MD.
Analog recordings are unlimited by this system.
CD
MD
MD
Digital
This is the usual method used by MDs and CDs to carry and record
sound signals. Digital recording can be of very high quality.
Editing
This refers to any post-recording changes made to the MD.
Marking
This is the act of adding track marks. It can be done automatically when
recording, or it can be done manually during recording or after recording
with the editing functions (DIVIDE).
Before use
Sound Cruise
TOC
Table of contents. Information stored on the MD about the tracks and
times.
Track marks
These marks separate tracks. There can be up 254 marks on one MD.
They can be inserted automatically or manually during recording, and
they can be added (DIVIDE) or removed (COMBINE) with the editing
functions after recording.
UTOC
User table of contents. This is information the user can edit, such as text
and track positions.
The message “UTOC Writing” appears on the display after recording and
editing.
Care and storage
Label MDs only as recommended. Extra labels and exposed adhesive
can cause malfunctions.
Do not open the shutter, and close it immediately if it accidentally opens.
Never touch the disc inside the MD cartridge.
Keep your MDs out of direct sunlight, humid and dusty places, and away
from the direct heat of heating appliances.
CD selection and care
(Long Play)
Advances in digital technology have now made it possible to record two
to four times the amount of stereo material on an MD.
Now you can record a maximum of 160 minutes of audio on an
80-minute MD using LP2 recording mode and 320 minutes using LP4
recording mode.
SP: Standard recording mode
LP2: Double the amount of material.
LP4: Four times amount of material.
The three modes can be used on the same MD.

Playing CD-R and CD-RW
This unit can play CD-DA (digital audio) format audio CD-R and CD-RW
that have been finalized upon completion of recording.
It may not be able to play some CD-R or CD-RW due to the condition of
the recording.
Finalizing is a process that enables CD-R/CD-RW players to play
audio CD-R and CD-RW.
Move the switch to open the write protect hole. Close the hole when you
want to record or edit the MD again.

Limitations on high-speed recording
This unit uses a copy management system to limit the use of high-speed
recording to protect the rights of the producers of music software.
¡ Some discs cannot be recorded at four times normal speed. CD-RW
are recorded a two times normal speed.
¡ You cannot use high-speed recording with program play, repeat play,
or random play.
¡ You cannot adjust the recording level when using high-speed
recording.
¡ Depending on the condition of the CD, some skipping of sound or
noise will be recorded to the MD. These problems can be relieved in
some cases by carefully cleaning the CD and then recording it at
normal speed.
¡ Depending on the signal level on a CD, some tracks will take longer to
record than others, even if they are the same length.
RQT5975
Recording operations
You cannot use high-speed recording to record the same track
twice within 74 minutes of starting recording.
¡ Even if you stop recording part way through, you cannot start
recording the same track again.
¡ If, for example, you complete recording in 20 minutes, you must wait a
further 54 minutes before using high-speed recording to record the
track again. You can record the track at normal speed.
26
You can record up to 50 tracks.
¡ If you finish recording 50 tracks within 74 minutes, you cannot start
recording the fifty-first track until 74 minutes have passed since you
started recording the first track.
¡ When you finish recording the 50th track, the message “PLEASE
WAIT KK min” (“KK” is the number of minutes) appears on the
display for a few seconds. “UTOC Writing” then flashes on the display
and recording ends.
¡ If you try to start recording before the waiting period is up, “PLEASE

¡ Tracks can only be grouped in sequence (e.g., 1,2,3,4,5).
Tracks separated by other tracks cannot be grouped, so, for example,
you cannot group tracks 3, 7, and 9.
¡ A group can be made from one track.
¡ A single track cannot be put into more than one group.
¡ Groups are not ordered in the order you create them. They are
ordered by track numbers.
¡ If you create groups with this unit and then edit on a unit that is
incompatible with group functions, the group information may be
rendered unusable.
¡ The disc title may not be displayed correctly on a unit that is
incompatible with group functions.
¡ After using editing functions (\ pages 32 to 35) on a disc with groups,
the UTOC is refreshed to maintain consistent group information.
