34 TASCAM CC-222 Owners Manual
6 After recording
This section deals with the actions taken after record-
ing: finalizing for CD-R and CD-RW discs, and erase
operations for CD-RW discs.
Once finalized, CD-R discs are truly finalno more
can be recorded on them. By contrast, CD-RW discs
can be unfinalized using the CC-222, that is, their
TOC can be deleted, and if there is space, further
material can be recorded on them. Even if the disc is
full, tracks can be erased following the unfinalize
process, and new material can be recorded.
Finalizing
As has been explained earlier (Finalizing on
page 8), in order for a disc to become a standard CD,
it must have a Table of Contents (TOC) written to it.
This process is known as finalizing.
An unfinalized disc can always be distinguished on
the CC-222 by the
NO TOC
indicator under the disc
type on the display being lit when the disc is inserted.
To finalize a disc:
1With the unfinalized (recordable) disc
loaded, and the unit in stop mode, press the
FINALIZE key.
The display shows Finalize OK?.
2To start the finalizing process, press the
MULTI DIAL or press the ENTER key.
If you do not want to proceed with the final-
izing process, press any other key (such as
the STOP key).
If finalization has been chosen, the display
changes. The
NO TOC
indicator goes out, and
the word TOC and the
REC
indicator flash in
the display. The unit starts counting down
from a time shown on the display (about 1
minute 10 seconds).
After finalization, a
CD-RW NO TOC
changes to
CD-RW
and a
CD-R NO TOC
changes to a
CD
.
NOTE
Although CD-R discs finalized on the CC-222 may be
replayed on ordinary CD players, remember that final-
ized CD-RW discs may not play on CD players.
Unfinalizing CD-RW discs
If a CD-RW disc has been finalized, it is possible to
erase the Table of Contents in the following way:
1With the finalized disc loaded and the unit in
stop mode, press the ERASE key.
2If the display does not show the word
Unfinalize?, turn the MULTI DIAL or
use the SKIP keys until it is displayed.
3To start the unfinalizing process, press the
MULTI DIAL control or press the ENTER key.
If you do not want to proceed with the unfi-
nalizing process, press any other key (such as
the STOP key).
If unfinalization has been chosen, the
NO TOC
indicator starts flashing in the display, and
the word ERASE also starts flashing. The
unit starts counting down from a time shown
on the display (depending on the disc and
material, this value will be between 50 sec-
onds and 1 minute 30 seconds).
After unfinalization, a
CD-RW
indicator
changes to a
CD-RW NO TOC
indicator.
Erasing
Unfinalizing (described above) is a special case of
erasing a disc. It is also possible to erase a track or
tracks, starting with the last-recorded track, a whole
disc, or to refresh a disc.
NOTE
Erase procedures are possible only on a CD-RW disc.
Even if a CD-RW disc has been finalized, selecting an
erase procedure will automatically unfinalize it prior to
erasure. The disc may then have to be re-finalized.
Remember that it is not possible to perform any erase
procedures on a CD-R disc.
