Note on playing back a AVCHD format disc recorded by AVCHD camcorder or supplied software Picture Motion Browser

You cannot playback a disc recorded with HD (high definition) image quality (AVCHD format) on DVD players/recorders as they are not compatible with the AVCHD format. Also, if you insert a disc recorded in the AVCHD format into those devices*, you may not be able to eject the disc from the device. Also, once you have inserted a disc recorded in the AVCHD format into those devices, you may not be able to playback or record on the disc with your camcorder properly.
 
* For Sony DVD players released in 1999 and 2000.

Important Note of Picture Motion Browser

The supplied software does not fully reproduce HD (high definition) image quality.
