01.

What media format does DMD-R0501 record to?
DMD-RO501 records to DVD+R/RW media only. Please check before you insert a blank media, the compatible media must have the wording of “DVD+R” or “DVD+RW” or this logo “
For more detail about media types, refer to your user’s manual

 
02. If DMD-R0501 is a DVD+R/RW recorder, can it read my recorded DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW media?
Yes, DMD-RO501 only writes to DVD+R/RW media, however it will read compatible pre-recorded DVD-R/RW media or CD-R/RW media. (NOTE: DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW require finalization before playable on other devices. So, please make sure any recordable media you attempt to play has been finalized on the original recorder)
For more detail about supported media, refer to your user’s manual
 
03. How come I can't see the setuo screen for DVD recorder on my TV?
First, please check your connections. DMD-RO501’s playback signal output is through AV-Out (Red/White/Yellow connection terminals), S-Video-Out, or Component-Out (Green/Blue/Red connection terminals) to your TV sets. Please ensure one of these three connection is used. (NOTE-1: S-Video and Component Video connection require separate Audio connection <Red/White connectors>) (NOTE-2: If your TV don’t have one of these connection available, you will need a separate RF modulator to make the connection)
Second, please change your TV to view proper input method. Most TV has buttons on the front panel and remote control that called “input” or “source” or “TV/AV” to switch between different sources to which your AV components are connected. (NOTE: If your TV has AV connection but don’t have an input selection button, it may be using channel up/down function to select sources. Try to press channel down from Ch-2 and see if source changes)
For more details, refer to your users’ manual for connection diagrams
 
04. After I inserted a blank media, how come it didn't start recording right away?
All blank media need time to prepare. The usual prepare-time varies but typically takes only a few seconds. During preparation, the DMD-RO501 is “busy” and can NOT execute any other commands that associated with disc drive such as “record”. During the disc preparation, the unit should display a message on your TV screen that reads “DVD ….. Preparing”. Once preparation is completed, it will switch to “DVD …… Ready”. If you are not sure of the status, you may press “display” button at any time to bring up this message bar.
 
05. How do I create chapters for my recordings? How do I display it like a commercial movie?
During the recording, a chapter mark is automatically inserted at a pre-set interval. This interval can be set under setup menu. However, this chapter mark is only used for skipping forward during playback. It can NOT be displayed.
On the recorded disc, each session (from the time recording starts untill a stop commend is given) is listed by Thumb Nail in the playback menu .
 
06. What are the different recording settings? And which setting should I choose?
When recording to DVD media, the standard mode is called SP (standard playback) which records about 2 hours of programs per each single layer DVD disc. For those who need to fit more program onto a single disc, there are LP (long playback or 3 hours), EP (extended playback or 4 hours) and SLP (super long playback or 6 hours) modes to choose. Each of the longer recording time mode sacrifices picture and sound quality to achieve the length of recording. User can choose any of these modes based on their needs.
To select a record mode, our EasyGuider will prompt you during recording operation, or you may change your desired mode in setup menu.
 
07. Can I take my recorded disc to other player for viewing?
Yes. However, please remember that DVD+R require finalization before it can be played back on other players, DVD+RW does NOT require finalization.
