This DVD video camera/recorder can use only the 8-cm bare discs not packed in a square cartridge, square
caddy case or round DVD holder. The discs in a square cartridge, square caddy case or round DVD holder
can be used if they are removed from the package, but take great care not to dirty or scratch the bare disc.
It is recommended that you use Hitachi Maxell HG type single-sided discs, since their compatibility with this DVD
video camera/recorder has been confirmed. When using an HG type double-sided disc, take great care with handling
it. Using a disc other than these discs may not allow the DVD video camera/recorder to deliver optimum performance.
INFORMATION ON DVD-R DISC
For optimum recording on DVD-R disc, this DVD video camera/recorder writes control data to the
disc in order to automatically make adjustments when it is inserted and ejected accompanying
recording. If the disc has no area to be written for adjustment, recording may not be possible. To
prevent this, do not insert or eject a DVD-R disc accompanying recording more than 100 times.
This DVD video camera/recorder cannot record a DVD-R in the VR mode.
NOTES ON FINALIZATION:
• Do not insert a DVD-RW (VF-mode)/DVD-R disc recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder
but not finalized, into a recordable device, such as a DVD recorder: The recorded data may be
damaged (except for devices that allow playback of a DVD-RW (VF-mode)/DVD-R disc not
finalized on this DVD video camera/recorder).
• Use only DZ-GX3300A/GX3200A/GX3100A/BX35A to record on or finalize a DVD-RW (VF-
mode)/DVD-R/+RW disc recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder but not finalized: Using
any other device could damage the data recorded on the disc.
DVD-RW or +RW discs edited and finalized on PC or those finalized on another DVD recorder may not be playable
on this DVD video camera/recorder, depending on the editing software used or recorded status of DVD-R disc.
If you insert a DVD-R disc recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder or a DVD video camera/
recorder other than DZ-GX3300A/GX3200A/GX3100A/BX35A and not finalized, the Disc Navigation
screen will automatically start, and no recording can be done on the disc nor can it be finalized.
Do not insert a DVD-R that was recorded by a DVD recorder manufactured by a company other than Hitachi,
and which has not been finalized, in this DVD video camera/recorder: Doing so will make the disc unusable.
