Copying a CD You can use this feature to easily copy an entire CD. Put the disc you want to copy in tray A. Put a blank disc in tray B (music or audio CD-R/ CD-RW only. The recoder does not accept standard computer CD-ROMs).
Chapter 3: Recording CDs High-Speed Dubbing You can use the high-speed dubbing feature when copying a CD or programmed tracks from disc A in order to speed up the recording time. The quality of the recording is the same as when you record at normal speed. Put the disc you want to copy in tray A.
Unfinalizing Discs (CD-RWs only) If you want to record additional tracks on a finalized CD-RW or completely erase a CD- RW that has been finalized, you’ll need to unfinalize it first. This process removes track information on the CD, including the Tables of Contents (TOC). Make sure the CD-RW disc you want to unfinalize is in tray B.
Chapter 3: Recording CDs Recording from an External Source Using CD Sync (Digital Synchronized) This is the preferred method of recording from an external source. It allows you to choose from optical or coaxial connections, depending on the output connections of the external source, and also automatically detects when a digital signal is sent to the recorder.
Recording from an External Source (Digital) Like synchronized digital recording, this method allows you to choose from optical or coaxial connections, depending on the output connections of the external source, but this method does not automatically detect when a digital signal is sent to the recorder. Put a blank disc in tray B.
Chapter 3: Recording CDs Recording from an External Source (Analog) If you don’t have the option of recording from a digital source, you may need to make an analog recording. Put a blank disc in tray B. Make sure the CD, tape, etc., is ready in the external source. Make sure the track numbering is set correctly.
Digital / Optical Recording • After digital recording (Dubbing, Make CD or recording from an external CD player) is complete, and the copied CD is finalized, it will contain copy protection information on the disc. COPY PROTECT appears when the finalized CD is inserted into tray A.
