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-5700'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-5700'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 FINALIZE. If for some reason
you wish to cancel the finalize process, press STOP [
3. Press PLAY [
] to start finalizing.
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.
