! This product is designed to play back discs that conform to the Compact Disc Digital Audio standard specifications (CD Standard). A DualDisc is a two sided disc product with a DVD recorded layer on one side and a digital audio layer on the other side. Be aware that the audio side (non-DVD side) of a DualDisc may not play on this product because it does not conform to the CD Standard.
Due to the multiple formats of discs now available, when buying pre-recorded or blank discs for use with a VAIO computer, be sure to read the notices on the disc packaging carefully to check both playback and recording compatibility with your computer's optical disc drives. Sony does NOT guarantee the compatibility of VAIO CD drives with discs that are not compliant with the official "CD" format standard (or "DVD" standard in relation to DVD drives, or "Blu-ray Disc" standard in relation to Blu-ray Disc drives). USING NON-COMPLIANT DISCS CAN CAUSE FATAL DAMAGE TO YOUR VAIO PC OR CREATE SOFTWARE CONFLICTS AND CAUSE SYSTEM HANGING. For inquiries about disc formats, contact the individual publisher of the pre-recorded disc or the manufacturer of the recordable disc.
8cm disc writing is not supported.
! To play copyright protected Blu-ray Disc media continuously, you need to update the AACS key. Note that the AACS key update requires Internet access.
As with other optical media devices, circumstances may limit compatibility or prevent Blu-ray Disc media playback. VAIO computers may not support movie playback on packaged media recorded in AVC or VC1 format at high bit rates. Region settings are required for some contents on DVDs and BD-ROM Disc media. If the region setting on the optical disc drive does not match the region coding on the disc, playback is not possible. Unless your external display is compliant with the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) standard, you cannot play or view the contents on copyright protected Blu-ray Disc media. Some contents may restrict video output to be standard definition or prohibit analog video output at all. It is strongly recommended that digital HDCPcompliant environment be implemented for optimum compatibility and viewing quality.
n 43 N
Notes on writing data to a disc
Use only Sony recommended software, which is preinstalled on your computer, to write data to a disc. Other software programs may not be fully compatible and errors may result. To make data on a disc readable on the optical disc drive, you need to close the session before you eject it. To complete this process, follow the instructions included with your software. Only use circular discs. Do not use discs in any other shape (star, heart, card, etc.), as this may damage the optical disc drive. Do not strike or shake your computer while writing data to a disc. Deactivate the screen saver and exit anti-virus software before writing data to a disc. Do not use memory-resident utility software while writing data to a disc. This may cause your computer to malfunction. Before using your software application to burn discs, make sure you exit and close all other applications. Do not place your computer into either of the power saving modes while using the preinstalled software or any disc burning software. Connect and use the AC adapter to power your computer or make sure your battery pack is at least 50% charged. Make sure you use the same disc burning software to add data to a used disc. Use of different disc burning software for additional data burning may cause a failure. For example, if you have a disc with data that you burned with the Roxio Easy Media Creator software, use the Roxio Easy Media Creator software to add more data to the same disc.
n 44 N
Notes on playing discs
To achieve optimum performance when playing discs, you should follow these recommendations. Some CD players and computers' optical disc drives may not be able to play audio CDs created with the CD-R or CD-RW media. Some DVD players and computers' optical disc drives may not be able to play DVDs created with the DVD+R DL, DVDR DL, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, or DVD-RAM media. Do not use memory-resident utility software to speed up disc access when playing a disc. This may cause your computer to malfunction. Do not place your computer into either of the power saving modes while your computer is playing a disc. Region code indicators are labeled on the DVDs to indicate in which region and on what type of player you can play the disc. If the DVD is labeled "all," this means that you can play this DVD in most regions of the world. If the region code for your residence area is different from the label on the DVD disc or on the packaging, you cannot play the disc on your computer.
