DVD±R/RW) disc itself, some CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) discs cannot be
played on the unit.
Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the labelled side or the record-
ed side) of a disc.
Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heart-shaped or octagonal). Doing
so may result in malfunctions.
Depending on the recording software & the finalization, some recorded discs

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a
compatible format, there are cases in which it may not play because of the
settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check with the
software publisher for more detailed information.)
