Note on digital recording
This recorder uses the Serial Copy Management System, which allows only ﬁrst-generation digital
copies to be made from premastered software. You can only make copies from a home-recorded
disc by using the analog (line out) connections.
Premastered software such as CDs or MDs
Restrictions on the editing of tracks transferred from your computer
This unit was designed so that editing functions (i.e., adding track marks and erasing track marks)
do not function for tracks that have been transferred from your computer. This is to prevent the
loss of transfer authorization by the transferred tracks. To edit these tracks, ﬁrst transfer them into
the computer, and then edit them on the computer.
About the DSP TYPE-S for ATRAC/ATRAC3
This recorder supports DSP TYPE-S, a speciﬁcation for high-level Sony MiniDisc decks equipped
with digital signal processors (DSP). This speciﬁcation allows the recorder to produce high-quality
sound from tracks recorded in MDLP mode. Since it retains DSP TYPE-R support, the recorder
produces superior results during playback in SP (normal stereo) mode.
Suppressing the skips of the sound (G-PROTECTION)
The G-PROTECTION function was developed to provide a higher level of shock resistance than
that of existing players.
