Finalizing Discs

The last step in making a recording is the finalization process. Unless
this step is completed, the disc will not work in other players or the
DA-5900's TRAY I. Once finalized, CD-R discs will play in virtually
any CD player. CD-RW discs will play in this unit and other CD-RW
compatible players. Check the specifications of your CD player if
you have questions about compatibility with CD-RW discs.
Once a CD-R disc has been finalized, it cannot be unfinalized.
A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized, allowing you to erase
or add songs.
Unfinalized CD-R and CD-RW discs can only be played in the
DA-5900's TRAY II. Unfinalized discs will not play in the unit's TRAY I.
To finalize a disc:
1. Load an unfinalized disc in TRAY II.
2. With playback stopped, press and hold in the FINALIZE button for
three seconds.
• Finalization will take about 60 seconds.
• If for some reason you wish to cancel the finalize process, press
STOP [
I
].
• When the operation is finished, COMPLETE will appear briefly
on the display, then the display will return to its track/time
display mode.
• During the finalization process, all buttons are disabled. Never
turn the power off or unplug the power cord.
