Recordable Media Compatibility
Caring for Optical Discs
DVD+R: These discs can only be written to once.
Existing recordings can be hidden but not deleted.
So, any disc space already used by a recording
cannot be regained. DVD+R discs are required to be
"Finalized" before they will be compatible with
standard DVD Players. Once a disc is finalized, no
further recordings can be made.
DVD+RW: DVD+RW discs can be written to and
erased multiple times. Existing recordings can be
deleted and disc space regained. These discs do not
require a finalization procedure. As soon as a
recording is made, the disc will be compatible with
standard DVD Players.
We have heavily invested countless hours in
compatibility testing to ensure we deliver a product
that is compatible with most recordable media
brands. However, 100-percent compatibility with all
DVD+R or DVD+RW recordable media is not
guaranteed. Therefore, it is recommended to try
different brands and stay with one that works best.
Hold a disc by the rim or with an index finger in the
central hole. Never touch the signal surface.
Finger prints or stains on the surface of the disc may
cause signal loss.
Use a soft cloth and wipe in a radiating manner from
the center of the disc to the outer rims when cleaning
the disc surface.
Never add labels or adhesive tapes on the discs and
be careful not to scratch or damage the disc surface.
To prevent discs from becoming bent or deformed,
they should be vertically kept in the disc storage case.
To prevent damage, avoid leaving discs in your car,
where they may be subject to direct sunlight and high
Do not use any disc accessory to improve the audio
quality, disc protective solutions or lens cleaner.
These products may damage the disc surface.
