To use the DVD-RAM media created in other formats, a device driver, reading software and so on are required. The usable formats may differ depending on the combination of Windows version used and software. Note that writing on the DVD-RAM media is not possible using this drive.

10.2 CD-R/RW writing speed

The drive can write to commercially-available CD-R or CD-RW media.

With the CD-R media, the content once written cannot be erased.

(It can be erased in a pseudo manner, however, available write space will not increase.)

With the CD-RW media, available write space will increase by erasing the written contents, resetting the media back to the original unwritten state or erasing a file written using packet writing. (Erasure of about 1,000 times is possible.) There are two media standards (specifications) in the CD-RW media; the standard called Multi

Speed that supports 1X to 4X write speed, and the other called

High Speed that supports 4X to 10X write speed.

Supported write speed is generally indicated on the package and so on for the CD-R/RW media. Write within a scope of supported speed of the media used.

10. Media 135

T

Writing speeds for the CD-R media

– 24X speed at the maximum (Zone CLV)

– 16X speed at the maximum (Zone CLV)

– 10X speed (CLV)

– 4X speed (CLV)

T

Writing speeds for the CD-RW media

– Multi Speed (1 to 4X speed) media:

4X speed (CLV)

– High Speed (4 to 10X speed) media:

4X speed (CLV)

10X speed (CLV)

T

Writing speed is fixed in the CLV format. In the Zone CLV format

(ZCLV), the speed changes gradually from the lowest at the beginning to the maximum speed. The write speed in the Zone

CLV format indicates the maximum speed.

T

The logo shown below is on the media or package of the High

Speed CD-RW media (CD-RW media supporting 4X to 10X speed write).

C a u t i o n

When using this drive with the USB1.1 interface, set the writing speed to 4X speed for writing because of its limited data transfer rate. When the drive is set to a speed faster than 4X, it may take more time because of write error prevention processing.

136 10. Media

10.3 Supported media

An actual list of media recommended by TEAC can be found at TEACs web site under www.teac.de/support. Please select the menu "CD-

Medias".

T

The drive does not support CD-R media for more than 80 minutes.

T

When a Zone CLV write is performed, concentric patterns may appear on the recorded surface due to the change of writing speed depending on the media used.

C a u t i o n

Even when using media of which write operation has been confirmed, normal write operation may not be performed due to variations of the product lot etc., or a read using other CD-ROM drives or CD players cannot be performed due to the deterioration of the write quality of the CD-R/RW media. It is recommended that you check the contents of data after writing to a CD-R/RW media.
