User data recording mode
User data (files other than XDCAM AV
files) can be recorded on Professional Discs
as PC data via the USB interface. This
allows Professional Discs to be used as data
recording media, with a data storage

PFD50DLA discs are used).
Directly editing or executing the files stored
in the UserData directory may cause an

application for it.
Specifically direct execution of the
application which attempts to create a
temporary work area in the directory and
the executable file stored in the directory
must be avoided.
