I am mostly on move for business. I carry lots of data every time and this drive is my constant partner. I was intending to buy a network storage that offers content sharing with advanced security. I love red color. I take this stylish ruby red rugged for all my travels. It is compact and quick. I cannot use the encryption feature to transfer my classified files on the corporate intranet network.

Overall a nice product. Two formats I regularly use on my computer and like to see on the screenplay are MKV and RMVB. I did my research around and until now iomega has this media player that competes with WD player. Need some space to upload my videos I got on a lot of different video cams (old and new).

While old technology, they represent cheap removable media. The Iomega Zip drive product is one we have used for many years.

Using discs

DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs are very delicate recording media. Carefully read the following cautions and observe them: Always use a brand new disc when recording important material. Be sure not to touch the recording surface of disc, or dirty or scratch it. If there is dust, scratch, dirt on disc or if it is warped, the following phenomena may occur: Block noise in playback image Momentary stop of playback image Sound interrupted during playback, or abnormal Block noise sound Blue thumbnail A l l Pr og r ams 0 01/ 006 display* (Fig. 1) Disc cannot correctly be recognised Disc cannot be RAM PLAY initialised Delay between video Fig. 1 * and audio Even if disc is normal, the above phenomena may occasionally occur. While the ACCESS/ PC indicator is lit, do not subject disc to vibrations or impact, and avoid using DVD video camera/recorder at extremely high or low temperatures, or in environment where condensation is likely to occur.
When recording images, A l l Pr ogr ams 001 / 002 the DVD video camera/ recorder may avoid the portions of disc where recording is not possible, RAM PLAY due to dust, scratches, etc. [It will pause m at (Recording one scene may produce multiple such a portion and thumbnails.) automatically restart recording (n).] This will cause recording to be interrupted for several seconds to several minutes, and multiple thumbnails will be created by one recording session as shown above. In this case, the recordable time on disc will decrease. Be careful when removing the disc since the metal of removal slot of DVD video camera/ recorder, and disc itself, may be hot.

Storing discs

When storing disc, replace it in the plastic case in which it was purchased. Be careful that no condensation occurs on disc. Do not place disc in following places: Direct sunlight for a long time Where humidity is high or in dusty place While there is heat from a heater, etc.

Note: Cards used on other devices can be used on this DVD video camera/recorder. No movie or music data recorded on card can be checked, viewed or heard on this DVD video camera/recorder. In addition, no such a data file can be displayed on this DVD video camera/recorder. Use the remaining display function to check the remaining free space on disc before use. See VERIFYING REMAINING FREE SPACE ON DISC OR CARD (CAPACITY) on page 130. Some still data recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder may not be playable on another device.
The pixel size of stills (JPEG) that can be recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder is as follows:

Although still images are recorded on DVD-RAM disc only in the FINE mode, the quality mode can be chosen when recording stills on card. (p. 93) The file size of a photo recorded on DVD-RAM disc in N status is equal to or larger than that recorded on card using the FINE quality in P. * JPEG: Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPEG is one of the photo image compression standards. It is widely used in digital still cameras since JPEG files can be used on ordinary PC. When this DVD video camera/recorder records on DVDRAM disc in N status, a JPEG photo will be recorded, along with a photo that conforms to the DVD video recording (DVD-VR) format which is used to be output to TV (see Terminology, p. 152). Only JPEG photos will be recorded on SD memory card.

The continuously recordable time of DVD video camera/recorder in the above table shows the time available when the DVD video camera/recorder is in the recording mode without using any other function after recording is started. In actual recording, the battery will discharge times faster than this reference, since the REC button and zoom are being operated, and playback is performed. Assume that the actually recordable time with a fully charged battery is between 1/2 and 1/3 of the above time, and prepare enough batteries to allow for the time you are planning to record on the DVD video camera/recorder. The continuously recordable time may be less depending on the conditions when the DVD video camera/recorder is used (if recording and recording pause are repeated at short intervals, etc.). Note that the battery discharges faster in cold places.

Creating DVD Video from DVD-RAM Disc Recorded on DVD Video Camera/Recorder
Using DVD-MovieAlbumSE and DVDfunSTUDIO, you can create a DVD video (DVD-R disc) from the images recorded on this DVD video camera/recorder, following the procedure below:
1 Insert a recorded DVD-RAM disc into the
DVD video camera/recorder, and connect the DVD video camera/recorder to the USB terminal of PC.
2 Start DVD-MovieAlbumSE, and edit the
images on DVD-RAM disc as necessary.
3 Right-click the thumbnail from which you
wish to create a DVD video on the DVDMovieAlbumSE screen, and execute Export.
4 The Program Export screen as shown
below will appear: Perform settings for export. For settings on Resolution and Audio in the Export Mode box, choose the options with Recommendations displayed. If you change the folder name in Destination Folder column, you can also change the folder in which the exported file will be stored.
Note: Choose Divide by Chapter in the Option box: Each scene of programme recorded on the DVD video camera/recorder will be saved as an independent movie file so that export can be executed at high speed. If you do not choose Divide by Chapter, movie files may be unified and re-encoded, so it may take time to export them. DVD-MovieAlbumSE may automatically reencode a movie recorded in the XTRA mode containing rapidly moving scenes, regardless of the Divide by Chapter setting, and it may take some time to export the movie file. Any disc on which scenes were combined (see page 110) on Disc Navigation of this DVD video camera/recorder is re-encoded, so it may take time to export files. Re-encoding may cause image degradation. Do not choose Simple Export in the Export Mode setting box: Choosing it may stop export midway.

Message

(1) Data error in a part of image file. Repair data now? (2) Found error in image file. Repair data now? (3) Data error in all image file. Repair all data now?
Cause & Troubleshooting
It is possible that the system cannot normally complete writing of file when power is turned off for some reason during recording or editing (deleting, dividing or combining scenes, or creating play list). Selecting YES will automatically repair the video file, but even if NO is selected, the same message will appear when the DVD video camera/recorder is turned on next time. (Do not remove the disc while the DVD video camera/recorder is recognising it: Ignoring this will deactivate the file repair function.) Follow the instructions on screen, taking note of the following cautions: Repair will normally be complete in several minutes, but it may take longer (up to one hour). Be sure to use the AC adapter/charger to power the DVD video camera/recorder when repairing data: Repair is not possible using a battery. If a battery has been attached, turn the power switch off once, connect the AC adapter/charger, and then start repairing. Data may not be repaired, depending on the timing when power was turned off. Data may not be repaired normally if data recorded on another recorder is mixed in. The repaired data may be different from the original recorded content because of partial deletion of defective portion. Since the date/time for repair is added to the repaired data (only the corrected portion for partial repair), the original date/ time information will be lost. Since all movies, and then all stills, are repaired, the order of recorded contents will be lost in case of message (2) (3) only. See *1 on page 163.

During recording

PLEASE PHOTOCOPY AND DISPLAY Used correctly, domestic batteries are a safe and dependable source of portable power. Problems can occur if they are misused or abused resulting in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or explosion. Here are some simple guidelines to safe battery use designed to eliminate any such problems.

ALWAYS

BATTERY SAFETY

GUIDELINES

Take care to fit your batteries correctly, observing the plus and minus marks on the battery and appliance. Incorrect fitting can cause leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Replace the whole set of batteries at one time, taking care not to mix old and new batteries or batteries of different types, since this can result in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Store unused batteries in their packaging and away from metal objects which may cause a short-circuit resulting in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Remove dead batteries from equipment and all batteries from equipment you know you are not going to use for a long time. Otherwise the batteries may leak and cause damage.
Never dispose of batteries in fire as this can cause them to explode. Please put dead batteries in with the normal household waste.
Never attempt to recharge ordinary batteries, either in a charger or by applying heat to them. They may leak, cause fire or even explode. There are special rechargeable batteries which are clearly marked as such.
Supervise children if they are replacing batteries themselves in order to ensure these guidelines are followed.
Remember that small button cell batteries such as used in some hearing aids, toys, games and other appliances, are easily swallowed by young children and this can be dangerous.
Keep loose button cells away from young children.
Make sure battery compartments are secure.
Seek medical advice if you believe a cell has been swallowed.

PLEASE PHOTOCOPY AND DISPLAY Used correctly, domestic batteries are a safe and dependable source of portable power. Problems can occur if they are misused or abused resulting in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or explosion. Here are some simple guidelines to safe battery use designed to eliminate any such problems.

ALWAYS

BATTERY SAFETY

GUIDELINES

Take care to fit your batteries correctly, observing the plus and minus marks on the battery and appliance. Incorrect fitting can cause leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Replace the whole set of batteries at one time, taking care not to mix old and new batteries or batteries of different types, since this can result in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Store unused batteries in their packaging and away from metal objects which may cause a short-circuit resulting in leakage or, in extreme cases, fire or even an explosion.
Remove dead batteries from equipment and all batteries from equipment you know you are not going to use for a long time. Otherwise the batteries may leak and cause damage.
Never dispose of batteries in fire as this can cause them to explode. Please put dead batteries in with the normal household waste.
Never attempt to recharge ordinary batteries, either in a charger or by applying heat to them. They may leak, cause fire or even explode. There are special rechargeable batteries which are clearly marked as such.
Supervise children if they are replacing batteries themselves in order to ensure these guidelines are followed.
Remember that small button cell batteries such as used in some hearing aids, toys, games and other appliances, are easily swallowed by young children and this can be dangerous.
Keep loose button cells away from young children.
Make sure battery compartments are secure.
Seek medical advice if you believe a cell has been swallowed.
