Notes on MP3/WMA Recordings
About MP3
yy An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using
the MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme.We
call files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3
files”.
yy The recorder can not read an MP3 file that has a
file extension other than “.mp3”.
About WMA(Window Media Audio)
yy WMA(Windows Media Audio) offers double the
audio.compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this recorder
is limited as follows:
,,Note
If the icon displays in the Photo menu, it
means you cannot see those JPEG files.
4. Use a/d/s/w to select a file, then press
ENTER (b).
The options appear on the left side of the menu.
1. CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660” and
“JOLIET”.
2. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files.We recommend that you use
“Easy-CD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 or
JOLIET file system.
3. Total number of files and folders on the disc
should be less than 1999.
This Recorder requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve
optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are
automatically set to these standards. There are
many different types of recordable disc formats
(including CD-R containing MP3 or WMA files) that
require certain pre-existing conditions (see above)
to insure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/WMA files and
music from the Internet. Our company has no right
to grant such permission. Permission should always
be sought from the copyright owner.

Notes on JPEG Recordings
yy Depending on the size and number of the JPEG
files, it may take several minutes to read the
contents of the media. If you don’t see an onscreen display after several minutes, some of the
files are too big — reduce the resolution of the
JPEG files to less than 4 mega pixels and burn
another disc.
yy The total number of files and folders are free but
the total number of files on the folder should be
less than 1999.
yy Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording formats or the condition of the discs.
yy When you are using software such as “Easy CD
Creator” to burn JPEG files on a CD-R, ensure that
all selected files have the “.jpg” extension before
copying them into the CD layout.
yy If the files have “.jpe” extensions, please rename
them as “.jpg” files.
Operating
Use s/w while viewing a picture to flip the picture
clockwise or counterclockwise.
yy File names without the “.jpg” extension cannot be

Notes for DVD recording
yy This Recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
yy Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can
affect playback and/or recording performance.
Please take proper care of your discs.
yy The company does not hold any responsibility
to compensate the contents which should have
been recorded, and any losses or damages (e.g.
losses of business profit, or business intermission)
that may arise from malfunction of this recorder
(not recording/editing as intended).
yy Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
yy When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will
execute the Menu-making operation to update
the new title and editing when removing the
disc from the recorder.
yy The recordable time is limited to 12 hours for a
title.
yy If the unit detects the copy-protected signal
while recording, the recording will be paused
temporarily until the signal switchs to recordable
signal.
Recording time and picture quality
There are five preset recording quality modes:
[XP] – Highest quality setting, gives about 1
hour of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
yy When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception
is poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
[SP] – Default quality, sufficient for most
applications, gives about 2 hours of recording
time on a DVD (4.7GB).
yy The unit cannot record the DTV caption on the
recordable DVD disc.
[LP] – Slightly lower video quality, gives about
4 hour of recording time on a DVD disc (4.7GB).
yy If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
yy The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
yy The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
yy If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change
the recording format (Video mode or VR mode)
before you record anything on the disc. See page
26 (Initialize) for how to do this.
yy When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can
keep recording until the disc is full, or until you
finalize the disc. Before you start a recording
session, check the amount of recording time left
on the disc.
yy When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode,
recording time available will only increase if you
erase the last title recorded on the disc.
[EP] – Low video quality, gives about 6 hour of
recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
[MLP] – The longest recording time with the
lowest video quality, gives you about 14 hours
of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
,,Note
You may see a fragmented picture during
playing back the contents recorded in EP or
MLP mode.

Operating
yy The recording times shown are not exact
because the recorder uses variable bit-rate
video compression. This means that the exact
recording time will depend on the material
being recorded.
yy The Delete Title option in the Title List (Original)
menu only hides the title, it does not actually
erase the title from the disc and increase the
recording time available (except for the last
recorded title on a DVD-RW disc in Video mode).

VR Mode: Original and Playlist
Editing
Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you add a disc’s title into the
Playlist, all the chapters within that title also added.
In other words, chapters in the Playlist behave
exactly as chapters on original content. 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.

Move functions, the start and end frames
may not be exactly as set in the start and

Is editing a DVD like editing a video
tape?
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 the disc according to the Playlist.

Throughout this manual, you will often see the
words Original and Playlist to refer to the actual
