For details about how to install the software, refer to the documentation that came with it.
Start using the CRW8824S drive!
Use the drive to create audio CDs, to back up data on your hard disk, or for whatever purpose suits your needs.
Features of the CRW8824S Drive
CD-R/RW discs can be written/rewritten at up to 8X speed. For example, an audio CD (74 minutes/650 MB) can be created in approximately 10 minutes. Data reading at up to 24X speed is supported.
CD TEXT support
CD TEXT is a capability that adds text data to an audio CD. Information such as the song name or artist name can be recorded using writing software. The text data on the disc you create can be displayed by a CD player that is compatible with CD TEXT.
Compatibility assurance data obtained through exchange of technical data with major disc manufacturers ensures compatibility with discs from a very wide range of manufacturers. 700 MB discs are also supported.
Writing software can be used to extract digital audio data at up to 24X speed. (This data can be saved in WAVE format in a Windows environment, or in AIFF format in a Macintosh environment.) Digital sound can be recorded with complete fidelity even when writing at 8X speed.
Yamahas proprietary Pure-Phase Laser System*1 improves jitter values*2 to allow the signal to be recorded accurately. In addition, the 4 MB buffer memory and Running OPC*3 technology further enhance reliability.
*1 Pure-Phase Laser System (patent applied for) Technology that reduces phase interference of the laser beam, so that it shines accurately on the disc. *2 Jitter value An important measure of recording quality. This has been improved 25% compared with Yamaha models not using this technology. *3 Running OPC CD-R/RW discs vary by manufacturer in their recording characteristics, and the laser output required to write data differs by disc. Running OPC is technology that solves this problem by automatically adjusting the output of the laser according to the material of the disc on which data is being written.
In order to use the CRW8824S drive, your computer system will need to meet the following set of requirements.
The minimum system requirements for using the CRW8824S drive are as follows: Any fully PC/AT-compatible computer. A Pentium-class or higher CPU running at 200MHz or faster. OS: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE (Second Edition), Windows NT4.0 with Service Pack 3 or later, or Windows 2000. RAM: 32MB memory, 64MB or more recommended. A vacant 5.25-inch drive bay for mounting the drive. A spare PCI expansion slot for a SCSI card (if one hasnt been installed yet). A SCSI card to connect SCSI devices (including the CRW8824S) to your computer. Make sure it has an internal bus connector. Yamaha recommends any of Adaptecs AHA-2940-series cards (PCI slot).
The software requirements for using the CRW8824S drive are as follows: CD writing software. This software must support the CRW8824S drive for writing to CD-R or CD-RW.
For details about how to install and use the software, refer to the documentation that came with it.
When temporarily storing data on a hard disk prior to writing to CD-R/RW, you will need an extra area of 50 ~ 100MB free hard disk space. When creating an image file of the data on hard disk before writing to CD-R/RW, you will need as much hard disk space as the original data, plus an extra 50 ~ 100MB. However, this extra area is not needed when backing up directly from CD-ROM.
Data is written to disc much more reliably when writing from an image file, eliminating the likelihood of errors occurring. Furthermore, this solution is ideal when making multiple copies of discs since the original data is backed up to hard disk as an image file. 3
The CRW8824S can record discs that carry the following logos.
CD-R discs The CRW8824S can write these discs at 8X*, 6X*, 4X, and 1X speeds. These discs can be played back in a CD-ROM drive or a CD player.
* Compatible with Orange Book Part 2. * When writing at 8X or 6X speeds, please use high-speed writing capable discs.
CD-RW discs There are two types of CD-RW discs: those that support write/rewrite speeds of 4X, 2X and 1X, and those that support only 2X. The CRW8824S can write/rewrite at 4X and 2X speeds on the first type of disc and at 2X on the second type of disc. These discs can be read/played on a device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) that supports CD-RW.
* Compatible with Orange Book Part 3 Vol.1.
High Speed CD-RW discs These discs allow writing/rewriting at 4X10X speeds. The CRW8824S can write/rewrite these discs at 8X and 4X speeds. These discs can be read/played by a CD-RW drive that bears the High Speed CD-RW logo, or by a device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) that supports CD-RW.
* Compatible with Orange Book Part 3 Vol.2.
In order to write, erase, or read these discs using a CD-R/RW drive, a drive bearing the High Speed CD-RW logo must be used. When using a CD-ROM drive to read these discs, the drive must be capable of reading CD-RW discs. If these discs are used in a CD-R/RW drive not bearing the High Speed CD-RW logo, the discs may not be recognized, resulting in the computer not operating correctly or other malfunctions occurring. Refer to the page at the URL below before attempting to read these discs on a Yamaha CD-R/RW drive not bearing the High Speed CD-RW logo. URL: http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/computer/
The Orange Book standard defines how all recordable discs (including CD-R and CD-RW) are written. Part 2 of the Orange Book standard relates to CD-R discs and Part 3, to CD-RW discs. The standard was named after the color of the books pages.
A CD-ROM disc is a compact disc containing high-density read-only data. It has many applications, including the playback of music and video, the archiving of data, as well as on-line documentation. The following are descriptions of each CD-ROM format: CD-DA: Data CD: Up to 74 minutes of stereo audio is written in 16-bit resolution at a sampling rate of 44.1kHz (for a 74 minutes disc). Up to 650 megabytes of computer data is stored in standard ISO9660 format.
Video CD: These hold movies in which the video and audio data has been compressed using MPEG-1 technology.
You will need the following tools at hand when installing the CRW8824S drive.
You will need to use this when removing the cover of your computer and when mounting the drive. You may also need to temporarily remove the sound card to gain access to the CD audio connectors. In which case a small screw retaining the sound cards face plate has to be removed.
Make sure your screwdrivers head is the correct size for the screws you need to remove.
You will need these to insert or remove the plastic shunts when setting the jumper switches at the back of the CRW8824S drive.

Installing the CRW8824S Drive
You can install the CRW8824S drive in one of two possible ways: As an additional drive If the casing of your computer has a spare 5.25-inch drive bay available, such as with many tower-type designs, you can fit the CRW8824S drive in addition to the computers existing CD-ROM drive.
As a replacement drive If the casing of your computer does not have a spare 5.25-inch drive bay available, such as with many desktop-type designs, you can replace the computers existing CD-ROM drive with the CRW8824S drive.
When replacing an IDE-type CD-ROM drive with the CRW8824S drive, you will also need a SCSI adapter card and an internal SCSI flat cable. 13
Fitting the CRW8824S as an Additional Drive
1 Power down your computer and unplug it from the AC outlet.
If you proceed without doing this, you run the risk of receiving an electric shock and/or short-circuiting and damaging components including the CRW8824S drive.
2 Remove the outer casing of the computer. If you need to remove screws in
the process, make sure you dont lose them.
The method for removing the casing and fitting the drive in the drive bay can vary depending on the manufacturer. Refer to the documentation that came with your computer for further details.
Installation 3 Touch a metal part of the computers chassis or power supply unit to drain
any static charge that may have built up inside your body.
Drain any static charge
You can permanently damage equipment if you touch it while there is any static charge in your body.
4 Remove the front cover of a vacant 5.25-inch drive bay slot in the computer
and slide the drive backwards into the slot.
Do not apply excessive force when sliding the drive back into the drive bay slot. 15
Installation 5 Leave enough room behind the drive for connecting the power, SCSI and
audio cables. Then tighten the four fastening screws on the sides of the unit by hand to hold the drive in place.
About SCSI adapter card termination To connect internally-mounted SCSI devices, the SCSI adapter cards on-board internal SCSI termination must be switched ON. With most cards, this is done automatically. If your SCSI adapter card requires that you manually disable internal termination, refer to the documentation that came with it.
Installation 6 Connect one end of the 50-pin SCSI flat cable to the computers SCSI adapter
card. Align the red line of the cable with Pin 1 of the cards SCSI connector. Next, connect a free 50-pin connector on the SCSI flat cable to the back of the CRW8824S drive such that the red line on the cable is aligned with pin 1, marked SCSI INTERFACE CONNECTOR 1.

@ After the computers operating system (Windows 95/98/98SE) has loaded, open the Control Panel and double-click on the System icon. Select the Device Manager tab and double-click on CDROM. If the drive has been correctly installed, it should be listed as shown below. Similarly, double-click on SCSI controllers and the SCSI adapter card should be listed as shown below if it has been properly installed.
For more information about how to use the operating system, refer to the documentation that came with it. or mark etc. next to If there is a the icon for the CRW8824S drive or the SCSI adapter card, this means that it has not been installed correctly. When using Windows NT, you can verify by opening the Control Panel, double-clicking on SCSI Adapter and clicking the Devices tab. For Windows 2000, double-click System in the Control Panel, select the Hardware tab, and click the Device Manager button in System Properties.
* This is a screen shown in the Windows 98 environment.
# Double-click YAMAHA CRW8824S listed under CDROM (in Windows 95/98/98SE) and click the Settings tab. Check the Sync data transfer checkbox. With Sync data transfer enabled, the data transfer between your CRW8824S drive and your computer is synchronized, meaning that the maximum possible data transfer rate can be achieved.
Refer to the documentation that came with your SCSI card for further details. When using Windows NT, Sync data transfer will automatically be selected if the SCSI adapter card supports this feature. You will not need to change this setting.
$ Install the CD writing software.
Refer to the documentation that came with the CD writing software for further details. 21
Is there dust on the disc tray or on the disc itself? Is the terminator of the last device on the SCSI chain set to ON? Or if it has no built-in termination, has a terminator been attached? Does the computer have a sufficient power supply? The CRW8824S has a power consumption of 11W (when reading and writing). Does your computer have several different CD writing applications installed? If you use more than one CD writing application simultaneously, the behavior of the drive can become unpredictable.
The drive ejects or fails to read the disc, or the ON/DISC LED remains lit in orange after the disc has been loaded (meaning that the disc has not been recognized). (P. 38) Disconnect the SCSI cable from the drive but leave the power cable connected, then load a disc. There may be problems with the disc itself. If the drive fails to recognize a variety of discs including audio CDs, CD-ROMs and blank CD-R/RW discs (the ON/DISC LED remains lit in orange after any discs have been inserted), you should contact your nearest Yamaha dealer. Errors occur when backing up at 6X or 8X speed from a separate CD-ROM drive to the CRW8824S drive. A possible reason is that the CD-ROM drive is not suitable. Please use a highspeed CD-ROM drive. However, for various possible reasons, you may still encounter errors even if you are using a 32X or 42X speed CD-ROM drive. Therefore, before writing directly at 6X or faster speed, you should check that it is possible to do so by choosing to test before writing. The Buffer Underrun error message is displayed. Try the following: Lower the writing speed setting. Create an image file of the CD on the computers hard disk. Defragment the hard disk. Turn hard disk power management off. Deactivate the Active Desktop (if you are using Internet Explorer 4 or 5). Disable network access. Close other applications (including screen savers, task schedulers, etc.).
Errors can occur if you knock the CRW8824S drive while it is writing to disc. When using packet writing on a CD-RW disc, the actual data capacity is 100MB less than that stated on the cover of the disc. The difference in capacity is dependent on the writing mode.
Same as writing to floppy or hard disk
Discs must be formatted before they can be used for packet writing. With CD-RW, erased data can be overwritten until the disc is completely full. With CD-R, the space used by the erased data cannot be reused and is masked so that it is no longer visible. This can be done up to 100 times.
About the firmware
The firmware is a small piece of software built into the CRW8824S drive, and is used to control its basic operation. Since it resides in flash memory, it can be overwritten and updated. To ensure the correct operation of the CRW8824S drive, updates to the firmware will be made available. You can find information about the most recent firmware for the drive on YAMAHA CD-R/RW Drive web site. URL for YAMAHA CD-R/RW Drive web site http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/computer/ http://www.yamaha-yste.com/ (Europe) The most recent user support information, including firmware updates, can be found in the CD-R area of Yamahas web site. Please check this information regularly.
The firmware is completely unrelated to the CD writing application software.
Determining the firmware version of the CRW8824S drive (in Windows 95/98/98SE)
Go to Control Panel | System | Device Manager tab, double-click on CDROM, then double-click on YAMAHA CRW8824S.
SCSI ID number When updating the CRW8824S drives firmware, you will need to enter its SCSI ID number. You can check the number here.
