CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/±RW) discs cannot be played on the unit.
Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the labeled side or the recorded side) of a disc.
Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heart-shaped or octagonal). Doing so may result in malfunctions.

The recording mode is closely related to the disc

then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc

time will depend on the material being recorded.
When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception is
poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
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 25
(Initialize) for how to do this.
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.
