Checking what's in the
box
Thank you for buying this Pioneer product.
Before starting to set up your new CD recorder,
please check that you have received the
following supplied accessories:
• Stand A (mounting bracket)
• Stand B (table-top stand)
• Optical cord
• Warranty card
• These operating instructions
Using this manual
This manual is for the PDR-F10 CD Recorder.
It is split into two sections; the first covers
setting up, and the second, using the recorder.
Set up, which starts here, shows you how to
install and connect up the recorder to the rest
of your system.
In the second section of the manual, starting
on page 11, you'll learn how to use every
feature of the recorder, from basic playback to
finalizing a recordable CD. The final part of
the manual provides a list of display
messages, a troubleshooting page, and
technical specifications.
Using the remote control
The PDR-F10 is designed for use with the XC-
F10 CD tuner, and can be controlled directly
using the remote control supplied with the
main unit. Since there is no sensor on the
recorder, the remote must be used within the
operating range of the remote sensor on the
XC-F10. See Using the remote control in the
main operating instructions for more on this.
Hints on installation
We want you to enjoy using this unit for years
to come, so please bear in mind the following
points when choosing a suitable location for
it:
Do...
✓ Use in a well-ventilated room.
✓ Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as
a table, shelf or stereo rack.
Don’t...
✗ Use in a place exposed to high tempera-
tures or humidity, including near
radiators and other heat-generating
appliances.
✗ Place on a window sill or other place
where the player will be exposed to direct
sunlight.
✗ Use in an excessively dusty or damp
environment.
✗ Place directly on top of an amplifier, or
other component in your stereo system
that becomes hot in use.
✗ Use near a television or monitor as you
may experience interference—especially
if the television uses an indoor antenna.
✗ Use in a kitchen or other room where the
player may be exposed to smoke or steam.
✗ Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with
cloth—this may prevent proper cooling of
the unit.
✗ Place on an unstable surface, or one that
is not large enough to support all four of
the unit’s feet.

Avoiding condensation
problems
Condensation may form inside the player if it
is brought into a warm room from outside, or
if the temperature of the room rises quickly.
Although the condensation won’t damage the
player, it may temporarily impair its
performance. For this reason you should leave
it to adjust to the warmer temperature for
about an hour before switching on and using.

+ 15cm =
Maintaining your CD
recorder
To clean your CD recorder, wipe with a soft,
dry cloth. For stubborn dirt, wet a soft cloth
with a mild detergent solution made by
diluting 1 part detergent to 5 or 6 parts water,
wring well, then wipe off the dirt. Use a dry
cloth to wipe the surface dry. Do not use
volatile liquids such as benzene and thinner
which may damage the surfaces.
Moving the unit
If you need to move the unit, first switch it off
and unplug from the wall outlet. Never lift or
move the unit during playback or
recording—the disc rotates at a high speed
and may be damaged.
CD lens cleaner
The CD recorder's pickup lens should not
become dirty in normal use, but if for some
reason it should malfunction due to dirt or
dust, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized
service center. Although lens cleaners for CD
recorders are commercially available, we do
not recommend using them since some may
damage the lens.
Storing optical cable
When storing optical cable,
coil loosely as shown at
right. The cable may be
damaged if bent sharply
around corners.

About CD, CD–R and
CD–RW Discs
This unit is compatible with three different
types of compact disc:
Playback-only CDs
This unit will playback any
ordinary audio CDs carrying
the Compact Disc Digital
Audio mark shown right.
CD-Recordable discs
Recordable CDs, or CD-R,
carry the mark shown right,
and are 'write once'. This
means that once something
is recorded on the disc it is permanent—it
can't be re-recorded or erased.
CD-Rewritable discs
Rewritable CDs, or CD-RW,
carry the mark shown right.
As the name indicates, you
can erase and re-record
material on these discs so that they can be
used over and over again.
Consumer-use discs
This recorder is only compatible with special
consumer-use CD-R and CD-RW discs. These
are clearly marked For Music Use Only, For
Consumer, or For Consumer Use. Other types
of CD-R or CD-RW discs, such as those
available for computer-based CD recorders,
will not work with this recorder.
Pioneer has checked the following branded
discs for compatibility with this recorder (as of
May 2000):
• Eastman Kodak Company
• Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd.
• Hitachi Maxell, Ltd.
• Mitsui Chemicals, Inc.
• Sony Corporation
• Ritek Corporation
• Taiyo Yuden Co., Ltd.
• TDK Corporation
• Verbatim Corporation
• Pioneer Corporation
Sample discs from the following makers have
also been checked for compatibility (as of
May 2000):
• Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation*
• Ricoh Company, Ltd.*
* At the time of writing, discs branded under
these names are not available.
Note: Discs from all of the above makers
may also be sold under different brand
names.
Recording copyright material
The price of a consumer-use disc includes a
copyright fee that has been paid to the
copyright owner (in countries where the
copyright fee collection system has been
established based on their respective copyright
laws). This means that you can use these discs
to record music and other material for your
personal use. If you want to use a disc for
anything other than personal use, you must
get permission from the copyright owner
(note that copyright laws vary from country to
country; check the copyright-related laws in
your particular country for more informa-
tion).

Recording and finalizing discs
Unlike other recording media, recordable CDs
have a number of distinct states, and what
you can do with a disc depends on the current
state of the disc. The figure below shows the
three states—blank, partially recorded, and
finalized—and what’s possible (●) in each.
The process of finalization fixes the contents
of a CD-R in place for good by creating a
Table of Contents (TOC, for short) at the
beginning of the disc. This tells a CD player
exactly what's on the disc and where to find it.
Once a CD-R is finalized, further recording
and other changes become impossible. The
CD recorder and other CD players treat a
finalized disc as an ordinary playback-only
CD. (See page 21 for more information on
finalizing CD-Rs.)
CD-rewritable discs can be finalized in the
same way as CD-R discs, but even after
finalization, the disc can still be erased and
used over again. Remember that CD-RW discs
can only be played on players that are
specifically designed to play CD-RW discs:
most home CD players will not play these
discs, even after the disc has been finalized.
(See page 21 for more information on
finalizing CD-RWs.)
1 Once the CD-RW has been erased, it
becomes recordable again.
2 In general, current CD players cannot
play CD-RW discs. However, this
situation may change.

Broadcast programs, CDs, other recorded
media (cassettes, vinyl records, etc.) and
musical performances are all protected by
copyright laws. You must get permission from
the copyright owner if you sell, transfer,
distribute or lease a disc recorded from the
above mentioned sources, or if you use it as
part of a business (such as for background
music in a store).

Handling discs
When holding CDs of any type, take care not
to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the
disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the
center hole and edge. Damaged or dirty discs
can affect playback and/or recording
performance. Take care also not to scratch the
label side of the disc. Although not as fragile
as the recording side, scratches can still result
in a disc becoming unusable.
Should a disc become marked with finger-
prints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth,
wiping the disc lightly from the center to the
outside edge as shown in the diagram below.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or
a commercially available CD cleaning kit to
clean a disc more thoroughly. Never use
benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents,
including products designed for cleaning
vinyl records.
Storing discs
Although CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs are
more durable than vinyl records, you should
still take care to handle and store discs
correctly. When you're not using a disc, return
it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving
discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot
environments (including under direct
sunlight).
When labeling discs, use a felt-tip pen sold for
marking CDs. Don't glue paper or put stickers
onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen
or other sharp-tipped writing instrument.
These could all damage the disc.
For more detailed care information see the
instructions that come with discs.
Discs to avoid
CDs spin at high speed inside the recorder
during playback and recording. If you can see
that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or
otherwise damaged, don't risk using it in your
CD recorder—you could end up damaging
the unit.
This recorder is designed for use with
conventional, fully circular CDs only. Use of
shaped CDs is not recommended for this
product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising
in connection with the use of shaped CDs.
Wipe gently from the center of the disc
to the outside edge using straight
strokes. Don’t wipe in a circular motion.

Pressing 4 once takes you to the
beginning of the current track. Further presses
skip to the start of previous tracks.
You can use the track skip buttons while the
disc is paused, too. The track number changes
while the disc remains paused.
6 To stop playback, press 7.
If the disc was paused, then pause is canceled.
The display shows the number of tracks on
the disc and the total playing time when the
disc is stopped.
Tip
In step 2 above, pressing the CD-R button
closed the disc compartment and set the disc
playing. In fact, pressing this button is always
the quickest way to play a disc. If there's
already a disc in the player, then pressing the
CD-R button—even when the system is in
standby mode—will switch the system on
and start the disc playing.
Caution!
Be careful not to trap your fingers in the disc
compartment as it closes automatically.
After the disc compartment closes, the
recorder first determines the kind of disc
loaded. Next, it reads the TOC, then starts
playing the disc.
You can also use the top panel controls:
6 closes the disc compartment and starts
the disc playing.
OPEN/CLOSE closes the disc compartment
without starting playback (the disc compart-
ment closes automatically after 60 seconds).
3 To pause playback, press the
CD-R button.
To resume playback, press again.
You can also use the top panel controls:
Press 6 once to pause playback; press
again to resume.
4 To fast-reverse or fast-forward,
press and hold 1 or ¡.
Release the button to resume normal
playback.
5 To skip back or forward to
another track, press (but don't
hold) 4 or ¢.
Pressing ¢ once skips to the start of the
next track on the disc. Further presses take
you to subsequent tracks.

Digital recording restrictions
This unit has been designed exclusively for
recording and playback of audio discs—you
can’t record other CD formats, such as
computer CD-ROMs or Dolby Digital (AC-3),
though you can record DTS encoded audio
CDs and HDCD format CDs.
Almost all commercial digital source material
is protected by copyright laws. For this reason,
this recorder uses special consumer-use blank
CD-R and CD-RW discs on which a copyright
fee has already been paid. A further restriction
is SCMS (Serial Copy Management System).
This generally allows just one generation of
digital recording. In other words, you can
make a digital recording from an original
source (such as a commercial CD), but you
can’t then make further digital recordings
from that copy. You can still copy via the
analog inputs, though.
Power interruptions
Never switch off this recorder while it's
recording, or while the display shows PMA
REC (Program Memory Area Recording). If
there’s a power failure, or you accidently
disconnect the power from the wall outlet
while recording is in process, the recording
will be lost.
After recording, always remove the disc from
the recorder before switching the power off.
Failure to do this could result in you losing
some of the recorded material on the disc.
Recording CDs
This recorder is designed to let you make
extremely high quality digital recordings onto
recordable compact discs. For flexibility, you
can use either rewritable discs (CD-RW) or
write-once discs (CD-R). For more informa-
tion on the discs you can and can’t use with
this recorder, see About CD, CD-R and CD-
RW discs on page 6.
Digital and analog recording
Usually, you can make direct digital
recordings from CDs. However, for copy-
protected discs, you can switch to analog
input recording. When recording from the
radio or any other component connected to
the CD tuner, the recording is via the analog
inputs.
When making digital copies of CDs, track
numbers are copied automatically along with
the audio. With analog input recording, the
auto track number feature numbers tracks
automatically according to spaces in the
source. You can also choose to number tracks
manually during recording.
Another difference between analog and digital
input recording is recording levels. When

is set automatically. When recording CDs
digitally, you can adjust the digital recording
level.

Miscellaneous information
• The minimum recordable time is four
seconds. Even if you try and record
something shorter than this, the track that
the recorder creates will be four seconds.
• Usually, track numbers are recorded onto
the disc automatically when recording. If
you decide to switch off this feature (for
example, when you’re recording from a
satellite broadcast), be sure to input track
markers as recording is taking place—
you can’t add them after recording is
complete. See pages 26–27 for more on
manual and automatic track numbering.
• The maximum number of tracks on a disc
is 99.

Finalizing a Disc
Before you can play a CD-R on an ordinary
CD player, the disc must be finalized. Once
finalized, a CD-R disc is no longer recordable,
nor will you be able to set or clear skip IDs
(see pages 28–29 for more on these).
Finalization is not reversible for CD-Rs so be
absolutely sure that everything on the disc is
the way you want it before you start.
CD-RW discs can also be finalized, although
you can still erase the disc afterward and
reuse it, so it’s not anything like as final as it
is with a CD-R disc. Not all CD players can
play CD-RW discs even after finalization.
Caution!
Finalization takes a few minutes. During this
time never switch off the power to the unit—
the disc may become unusable as a result.

3 Use 4 or ¢ to select
FINALIZE, then press SET.
4 Press SET to start finalization.
Finalization takes about four minutes; you'll
see how long there is still to go in the display.
After finalization is complete:
• If a CD-R is loaded, the CD-R indicator
changes to CD.
• If a CD-RW is loaded, the FINALIZE
indicator lights in the display.
• None of the controls on the player or the
remote have any effect during finalization.
If, however, the recorder hasn't managed
to finalize the disc within 10 minutes, you
can abort the operation by pressing 7. If
you do this, the disc won't be playable on
an ordinary CD player.

Setting the digital
recording level
Usually when recording a CD you don't have
to set recording levels. If you’re recording a
commercially produced CD, the digital level
has already been optimized and you don’t
need to change it. If you’re making a digital
copy of a CD that was not commercially
produced and that was consistently under-
recorded, you can boost the overall level by up
to +20dB. Remember though, that any peaks
in the original recording run the risk of
distorting the copy.
It’s also possible to reduce the digital
recording volume so that you end up with a
recording that is quieter than the original. In
most cases, this is not desirable since the
recording quality will suffer very slightly.
However, if you're putting together a mix CD
(various tracks compiled from different
sources), and there is a track which stands out
as generally louder than the others (peak
volumes are usually similar, but the average
level of some recordings might be higher than
others so they sound louder), then you might
want to reduce the level of that track.
Note that this feature will not get rid of
distortion on the source material.
You can adjust the digital recording volume
while the recorder is in record-pause mode or
while it’s actually recording. Once changed,
the new digital recording level remains until
you change it again, or reset it.
1 Make sure the source is set to CD.
Press CD on the remote to switch to CD, then
stop playback.
2 Make sure that the digital input is
selected.
Pressing INPUT SEL. (top panel only)
repeatedly switches the active input:
3 If the recorder is not already in a
record mode, press REC (top
panel only).
4 Use the LEVEL + and – buttons
(top panel only) to adjust the
recording level up or down.
• The maximum adjustment possible is
between MIN and +20dB.
• The level meter is made up of seven
segments; if the last segment in either
channel lights, the level is overloading the
recorder. Reduce the recording level if this
happens.
• If you set the level at anything other than
0dB, the D.VOL indicator in the display
lights.
Note: When recording HDCD or DTS CDs,
make sure that the digital volume is set to
0.0dB.

Numbering tracks
By default, the recorder automatically numbers
tracks during recording. When you record a CD
digitally, the track numbers are copied together
with the audio. For other sources, the recorder
starts a new track when it detects more than two
seconds of silence between sounds. However,
when you select the tuner as your recording
source, automatic track numbering will switch
off and you will have to start new tracks
manually, or in time increments (see page 27).
You can switch between auto and manual track
numbering either before starting to record, or
during recording itself.
Remember: it is not possible to edit track
numbers after recording.
If you're recording digitally from CD you can
usually let the recorder number the tracks
automatically as they change on the source
material. When recording analog sources, the
recorder will start a new track if it detects more
than 2 seconds of silence. However if you’re
recording a noisy vinyl record or a classical
recording with long quiet sections, the recorder
may not always recognize the gap between
tracks. In this case, we recommend using
manual track numbering.

Skipping unwanted
tracks
After recording a CD-R disc, you may decide
that you don’t want one or more tracks. This
may be due to a simple mistake or because a
track didn’t record successfully. Although you
can’t erase those tracks, you can set what are
called skip IDs. These tell a CD player (though
not all recognize skip IDs) not to play a
particular track, but to skip to the next one on
the disc.
You can also set skip IDs on CD-RWs,
although it’s probably a less useful feature
since you can always erase the last track.
Once a skip ID is set, you can clear it, but be
careful: you can set up to 21 skip IDs per disc,
but repeatedly setting and clearing skip IDs in
different recording sessions will reduce this
number.

A third, special option, erases (re-initializes)

time during any erase process, hit eject, take
