DISC INFORMATION
About Discs
Recordable/playable discs
You can use discs with the following logos for recording and
playback.
● Recording and playback may not be performed depending on
the characteristics and condition of the disc used, leading to
unsatisfactory results. Using discs manufactured by JVC is
recommended since they have been tested to be compatible
with this unit.
DVD-RAM Discs
It is only possible to use discs which conform with DVD-RAM
standard Version 2.0.
● It is impossible to record on DVD-RAM discs which do not
conform to this standard. If you use a disc formatted under a
different standard version, format it on this unit before use.
● It may not be possible to record, play back, edit or dub a
DVD-RAM disc even if it conforms to the standard if it was
recorded or edited on the devices from other manufacturers or
on a PC, or if it has far too many titles, or if there is very little
available capacity remaining on the disc.
● Some DVD-RAM discs are contained in a cartridge. This unit
cannot handle this type of disc. Remove the disc from the
cartridge (only discs with a removable cartridge); or the use of
DVD-RAM discs not contained in a cartridge is recommended.
● DVD-RAM discs recorded on this unit cannot be played back
on an incompatible DVD player.
● It is possible to record copy-once programmes of digital
broadcasts only onto 4.7/9.4 GB DVD-RAM discs (2.8 GB
DVD-RAM discs are not compatible).
DVD-R/RW Discs
It is only possible to use DVD-R discs which conform with
DVD-R standard Version 2.0, and DVD-RW discs of Version 1.0
or higher.
When a DVD-R/RW disc (Video mode) is finalised (墌 pg. 107),
it can be played back on a standard DVD player as a
DVD VIDEO disc.
When a DVD-RW disc (VR mode) is finalised (墌 pg. 107), it
can be played back on a standard DVD player compatible with
the VR mode of DVD-RW discs.
Before finalising (墌 pg. 107) —
— it is possible to record on unrecorded areas of the disc, edit
the disc title and programme titles, and delete programmes.
● It is impossible to record or edit DVD-R/RW discs recorded on
other devices even if they have not been finalised.
● It is impossible to overwrite recorded areas of DVD-R discs.
● Available recording capacity does not increase even if a
recorded programme is deleted from a DVD-R disc.
After finalising (墌 pg. 107) —
After a DVD-R/RW disc (Video mode) has been finalised, it is
possible to play back the recorded programmes (video and/or
audio) on a standard DVD video player as a DVD VIDEO disc.
● Edited titles are displayed as the “DVD menu” in video mode.
● It is impossible to record, edit or delete the data either in video
mode or in VR mode.
● Either in video mode or in VR mode, although the disc can be
played back on DVD players from other manufacturers,

Recording Medium and Format
DVD-RAM
● Recording and erasing can be performed as many times as
possible on a disc.
● Editing can be performed after recording, such as deleting
unwanted parts.
● While recording, it is possible not only to start playback of a
programme currently being recorded, but also to watch
another programme previously recorded.
DVD-RW (VR mode)
● Recording and erasing can be performed as many times as
possible on a disc.
● Editing can be performed after recording, such as deleting
unwanted parts.
DVD-RW (Video mode)
● Can be played back on other DVD players.
● New recording can be performed by erasing all the data on a
disc once played back.
DVD-R
● Can be played back on other DVD players.
● Suitable when keeping a recorded disc for a long time.
File Structure of Discs
DVD VIDEO
Typically, DVD VIDEO discs are made up of larger units called
“titles”. Each title has a number (title number) that can be used
to select desired titles. Titles are further divided into units called
“chapters”. Each chapter has a number (chapter number) that
can also be used to select desired chapters. Note that some discs
are not divided into titles and chapters.
When you record a programme on a DVD-RAM/RW (VR mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted
when recording is paused, or audio changes from monaural or
bilingual to stereo due to commercial breaks, etc. It is also
possible to insert chapter marks at desired locations during
playback. (墌 pg. 32)
When you record a programme on a DVD-R/RW (Video mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted
when recording is paused, or audio changes due to commercial
breaks, etc. It is also possible to insert chapter marks at desired
locations during either recording or playback. Once the disc has
been finalised, these chapter marks are deleted and new chapter
marks are assigned automatically approximately every 5
minutes.
● In Video mode, even before finalising, it is impossible to
perform editing operations other than changing the disc name
and/or title names and deleting programmes and/or titles.
● After finalising, it is impossible to perform editing operations.
Audio CD/Video CD
Typically, Audio CD discs are divided into separate tracks each
containing one song. Each track is assigned a number. For
example, the third track is Track 3. The same is true for Video CD
discs.
However, some discs are not divided into tracks.

DISC INFORMATION (cont.)
JPEG/MP3 Disc (CD-R/RW/ROM)
MP3/JPEG files put in directories nested in several levels on a
disc will be organized as if they were put in single level
directories (groups) by the MP3/JPEG Navigation of this unit.
(墌 pg. 76)
File structure of a disc before starting the MP3/JPEG Navigation
File structure of the disc after starting the MP3/JPEG
Navigation
Files are automatically grouped as follows and displayed on the
MP3/JPEG Navigation screen. Data is displayed in the
alphabetical order of file name. Files are grouped based on
roots.
● This unit can recognise up to 9 hierarchies including
directories and files.
Also, it can recognise up to 250 files in each group, and up to
99 groups on a disc.
NOTES:
● Video CD discs that support Playback Control (PBC)
The contents of a disc are recorded into several hierarchies,
and played back according to the instructions on the screen
while navigating through the hierarchies. It is also possible to
playback recorded tracks consecutively without activating the
PBC function even when playing a PBC-compatible disc.
(墌 pg. 34)
● Regarding the contents recorded on discs
Some files may not be played back depending on the file types
and other factors.
DVD VIDEO Marks
Sometimes marks are printed on a DVD disc and/or on its
packaging to indicate information regarding the contents and
functions of the disc. Check the marks indicating the contents
and functions of the disc. Note, however, that in some cases a
disc may not include a mark even for a function it supports.

Placing a Disc
Opening the disc tray
Press x on the unit or remote control to open the disc
tray.
● Pressing the button on the unit or on the remote control again
closes the disc tray.
● Use the buttons on the unit or on the remote control to open
and close the disc tray.
● Do not block the disc tray with your hand while it is opening
or closing as this may result in hardware failure.
● Do not place unplayable discs or any object other than a disc
on the disc tray.
● Do not press down strongly on the disc tray or place any heavy
objects on it.
Discs without cartridges
● Place the disc on the disc tray with the label side facing up.
Since disc size changes depending on the disc to be played
back, be sure to correctly align the disc with the grooves for its
size. If the disc is not in its groove, it may be scratched or
otherwise damaged. To insert an 8 cm disc, place it according
to the inner groove.
DVD-RAM discs contained in cartridges
Double-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the
grooves on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert
with the side you wish to play back or record facing down. If you
insert the disc with “Side A” facing down, programmes are
recorded on the side A.
Single-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the
grooves on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert
with the label side facing up.
Care and Handling of Discs
How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do
not touch the surface of the
disc. Since discs are made
of plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped,
the images and sound will
not be picked up correctly,
and such a disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any
adhesives on its surface.
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched and dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that
a DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirt when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs
If there are fingerprints or other dirt
adhering to a disc, wipe with a soft dry
cloth, moving from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a
cloth moistened with water. Never use
record cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any
anti-static agents.
Unit Remote control
Disc tray
CAUTION
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images
may be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not
be up to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the
malfunction of the unit.

Live Memory
Playback
This unit records pictures onto DVD-RAM discs, instead of video
tapes, then plays back the pictures recorded on the discs. This
makes it possible to achieve high-speed writing and read-out
that has not been possible with conventional VCRs, enabling
recording and playback simultaneously.
It is called “Live Memory Playback” to start playback of the
programme being recorded, with a time-lag between a recording
point and a playback point, as shown in the figure below.
Not only can this unit play back a programme previously
recorded while recording or timer recording another
programme, but the unit also allows you to play back from the
beginning of a programme while continuing to record the same
programme.

playback can continue.
● When using Live Memory Playback during timer recording,
playback continues even after the end of the recording.
