3 – Cassette operations—Recording tapes from the PHONO deck
TASCAM CC-222 Owner’s Manual 17
The dubbing stops when playback reaches the end of
the CD, or when the tape reaches the end of its run
(one side in the case of single-sided (u) reverse
mode, both sides in the j reverse mode), which-
ever comes first.
Note that if the tape is set to auto-reverse, and the last
item recorded on one side of a tape was not com-
pletely recorded before the tape was reversed, that
item will be automatically repeated.
Also note that when the tape automatically reverses,
eight seconds are used as non-recorded time at the
beginning of the second side (the tape is in record
mode, but the CD does not play back), again to allow
for leader tape at the start of the cassette.
The dubbing process can also be stopped manually
with the STOP key of the cassette deck or the CD
deck. All other transport keys are disabled.
Dubbing is not possible if: a cassette is not loaded, or a
CD is not loaded. It is not possible if the cassette is
write-protected, or if the CD is a recordable disc which
does not currently have any material recorded on it.
It is also not possible to enter the dubbing mode if the
tape is not in stop or record ready mode, or if the CD is
not in stop or pause mode.

at the point where the playback is to start.
