Before you start recording, note the following points:
The unit requires Digital Audio CD-R or Digital Audio CD-RW media
for recording. Computer CD-R or CD-RW discs do not work with this
unit. Only discs with the following logos can be recorded:
Once you have recorded on a CD-R disc, the data cannot be
erased from it.
You can add tracks to an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc. Once
finalized, a CD-R disc cannot be changed. Finalized CD-RW discs,
however, can be erased and re-recorded.
Due to technical restrictions of CDs, a track cannot be less than
four seconds in length, and there can be a maximum of 99 tracks
on an audio CD.
When the recording is finished, PMA WRITE and COMPLETE are
displayed for a few seconds, then the unit stops. Make sure the
unit doesn't vibrate during recording.
If the end of a disc is reached during recording, the unit will do a
fade-out over a few seconds. When the fade-out has finished, the
unit will automatically finalize the disc and stop.
When the number of tracks exceeds 99 during recording, the
unit stops recording.
The recording time of a track may slightly differ from that of
the original one.
Discs with HDCD logo will be recorded in the standard CD format.
If you record a track with the Repeat 1 function enabled, the track
number may not be incremented correctly.
ABOUT THE SERIAL COPY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This unit complies with the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS)
standard. This standard was created to restrict digital-to-digital
copying to only the first generation. The basic rules governing this
system are as follows:
1. A digital recording can be made through a digital input
connection from a digital source such as a CD, DAT or MD onto a
recordable Audio CD-R, Audio CD-RW, MD or DAT. However, second
and later generation copies cannot be recorded digitally.
2. When an analog source such as an FM broadcast is digitally
recorded by using a CD-R, CD-RW, MD or DAT, this recorded source
can be digitally recorded on another CD-R, CD-RW, MD or DAT.
However, further digital copying is prohibited.
