Other Precautions

  • To create a disc, you need a separate recording device suited to your requirements. An environment that supports a recording device is also necessary.
  • Before creating a disc, please check that the recording device is operating normally. Use discs recommended by the manufacturer of the recording device.
  • Recorded DVD-R and DVD+R cannot be overwritten.
  • Discs in poor condition, such as scratched or dirty discs, cannot be used.
  • Check that no software or drivers that may affect disc creation are installed on your Macintosh. A screensaver or other software that runs permanently may affect disc creation. When creating a DVD, we recommend that you do not launch any application software other than mono DVD.
  • Confirm that there is sufficient free space in the memory and on the hard disc.
    You may not be able to create discs successfully if the available space is small.
  • For working space to create a DVD, a free space two times the size of the disc you are creating is required on the hard disc.
  • If working folder is located in Mac OS X start up disc, extra 1GB is required.
