About DVD recording
This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or

failure due to power outages, defective discs, or

Disc types and recording formats, modes,
This recorder can play five different kinds of DVD
discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format
for DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW discs is always “Video
format”—the same as pre-recorded DVD-Video discs.
This means that once finalized, you can play a
DVD-R, DVD+R, or DVD+RW in a regular DVD
By default, the DVD-RW disc format is Video
Recording (VR) format, though you can change this to
Video format, if required. (Reinitializing the disc will
erase the contents of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc
format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc
format is Video mode, then the recording mode is
Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not
recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
Within the recording modes (which are fixed for them
whole disc) are the record settings. These can be
changed as required for each recording and
determine the picture quality and how much space the
recording will take up on the disc.
About HDD recording
Recording to the internal hard disk drive (HDD) is
basically similar to recording to a VR mode DVD-RW
disc. You have the full choice of recording quality
options, including the manual mode, and of course
you can record, erase and re-record as many times as
you like. The capacity of the hard disk drive means
that you can store many hours of video on it, even in
the higher quality recording modes. To help you
organize the contents, the HDD is divided into ten
genre. You can name and use these genres as you
like—for example, you might have a genre for movies,
another for TV shows, and one for camcorder
