< Once you have recorded on a CD-R disc, the data cannot be


< A recorded CD-R can be played back in a regular CD player after


< To add more recordings to a finalized CD-RW, unfinalize it. (See

page 31.)

When all available space on a CD-RW has been recorded, you can

record additional tracks by erasing previously recorded tracks.
Note that you can only erase all tracks or the last track.

< If the STOP button (H) or PLAY/PAUSE button (y/J) is pressed

within 10 seconds from the beginning of recording, the unit does
not stop recording.

< When the recording is finished, “REC” and “- ENd - ” blink for a few

seconds, and the unit then goes into stop mode. Do not apply
any shock or vibration to the unit during blinking.

< If the disc reaches the end during recording, the unit finalizes the

disc automatically and stops.

< If the disc reaches the end of the 99th track during recording, the

unit finalizes the disc automatically and stops.

< The recording time of a track may differ slightly from the original


< When a partially recorded disc is inserted, recording starts after

the last recorded track.

< The AUTO REC function automatically divides a track according

to the sound level that has been set (See page 25). Therefore it
is possible when using this function that a finished copy could
have more tracks than its original source. It would be caused by
extremely quiet part or noisy part.

< When the TRACK INCREMENT button is pressed while recording,

the recorded sound will be cut for a moment.

Do not use the TRACK INCREMENT function while the music

sound continues.

< When the disc which was recorded by this unit is played back by

some other players, a small noise may be heard at the point that
the track is divided.
