Preparing the CRW-F1SX Drive SCSI ID 0 SCSI ID 4 SCSI ID (ID SELECT: 1) 1 (default) The SCSI ID number “7” is normally reserved for the SCSI card. Note • In the case that other SCSI device has been already connected to the computer, be sure that the CRW-F1SX drive’s SCSI ID number is different from others.
Termination A terminator prevents the reflection of SCSI signals at the ends of a SCSI chain. The terminators of the devices at the end of the SCSI chain are required to be set to ON. If the CRW-F1SX drive is not at the end of the SCSI chain, the TERMINATOR (SW 4) of the dip switch is required to be set to OFF.
Preparing the CRW-F1SX Drive 2 Connect the CRW-F1SX Drive Note Place the CRW-F1SX drive horizontally. Turn off the computer and all peripheral SCSI devices. Check that the power switch on the rear panel of the CRW- F1SX drive is turned off (STANDBY). Connect the SCSI cable to the SCSI connector of the CRW- F1SX drive.
SCSI cable • The connector of SCSI cables or SCSI interface cards varies. A SCSI cable with proper connectors for both the CRW-F1SX drive and the SCSI interface card is required.

Technical Notes Buffer Underrun Protection Function CD-R/RW drives are equipped with a buffer memory, which temporarily stores data that is being transferred. When the buffer memory becomes empty due to a delay of data transfer for any reason, a writing error happens. Such condition is defined as buffer underrun, and such an error is defined as a buffer underrun error.
Session-at-Once (SAO) This method is used to write data on a disc on a session-by-session basis. Unlike Track-at-Once described above, Session-at-Once enables you to record multiple tracks onto a disc at a time. CD EXTRA, for example, uses this method to write multiple pieces of audio data (or multiple tracks) in the first session and information required for computers in the second session.
Technical Notes CD-MRW (CD Mount Rainier ReWriting) This method is a new standard of packet writing for a CD-RW disc and supports defect control by the drive, background formatting, and disc ejecting during formatting. It enables you to use a CD-RW disc like a floppy disk. Note Formatting a CD-RW disc using CD-MRW reduces its storage capacity by about 150MB since CD-MRW itself requires exclusive disc space.
