Copy from Hard Disk to recordable DVD
– It is not possible to record the TV
programmes or the scheduled timer
programmes directly to a
recordable DVD. You can only
record it to the HDD and then copy
to a recordable DVD.
– Copy protected (Copy-Once or
Copy-Never) movies and DVD Videos
cannot be copied to the HDD.
You can copy a recorded title from the
HDD (hard disk drive) to a recordable
The time required for copying from HDD
to a recordable DVD depends on the
recording mode of the HDD recordings.
It is not possible to change the recording
mode for the copying process. It is
therefore important that you choose the
appropriate recording mode when you
set up the recording to the HDD.
The copying process is done at a higher
speed than the recording. The maximum
copying speed is up to 2x. You cannot
shorten the time required for recording
even with high-speed discs.
Hours of recordings can
be stored in an empty
4.7GB recordable DVD
The following information will be stored
on the disc :
– Recording mode
– Title/name of recording
– Date and time of recording
– Index picture of title
TIPS: Ensure that there is suffi cient space available on the recordable DVD before recording.
You have to fi nalise the DVD±R before it can be played on other players, see page 72.

discs can be used with this recorder:
DVD±RW (DVD Rewritable)
– Discs that are re-writable can be used
for multiple recordings once existing data
DVD±R (DVD Recordable)
– Discs can only be used for a single
recording. Each new recording is always

recordings as existing recordings cannot
– Editing can be done on DVD±R discs
as long as they have not been fi nalised.
– You can also delete unwanted
recordings. However, the disc space
occupied by the deleted recordings
cannot be recovered for further
– To play a DVD±R disc on other DVD
players, it must be fi nalised (see page 72).
After this is done, no more data can be
added to the disc.

DVD+R DL (DVD+R Double Layer)
– It contains the same usage as DVD+R,
the only difference is the capacity- 8.5GB.
It offers two recordable layers on a single
DVD disc. The layers are accessible from
the same side of the disc, so recording
can occur completely uninterrupted.
