AV Function Guidelines
AV Function relies on the media playback capacities of Smart TVs and pads. Please refer to your device manual and specifications for details.
Smart TVs and pads require USB ports with 5V and 1.4A support for playback. Playback may not function properly if the device cannot provide sufficient power via USB ports.
AV Function only supports playback and does not support data backup.
What is “AV Mode”?
Generally, a standard Optical Disk Drive (ODD) can only be used with a computer. But when you connect the SDRW-08D3S-U ODD to another USB-compatible system such as a Smart TV that supports playing videos, viewing photos and listening to music, and enable the AV mode, you can play videos, view photos, and listen to music from this ODD to your system*. *Does not support DVD-video Title Disc (commercial DVDs).
How Do I Use the “AV Mode”?
To switch from ODD mode to AV mode, eject the ODD tray and press the Eject button for one second, then the LED on the front panel lights up. To switch back to ODD mode, you can either press the Eject button again for about one second or disconnect and connect the ODD to your system. The LED on the front panel is off in ODD mode. In AV mode, you have to wait for a few minutes for the system to detect the ODD (the detection time depends on the file size and the number of files). It takes about 2.5 minutes for the system to detect an installed 4.3GB disc.
Depends on the formats that the system, such as a Smart TV, supports. Refer to the documentation that came with the system.
Quantity of supported files
Maximum 3000, supports up to five levels of directiones
Supported file capacity
Less than 4GB for a single file
CD/DVD (exclude DVD-RAM)
When the AV mode is enabled, the ODD converts ISO/UDF files in the disc to FAT32 so that the system can detect the files. The detection time depends on the file size/number of the files. On average, it takes about 30 seconds for the system to detect files on a 1GB disc.
Supported disc file format
ISO-9660 / Joliet, UDF 1.02 - 2.5
Supported media types
CD/DVDs in UDF or ISO format (excludes DVD-RAM)
In AV mode, the ODD does not support Auto-play function.
Current of USB port
To provide sufficient power to the ODD, connect the two type A connectors of the bundled Y-cable to the system to ensure that the current is above 1.4A. Insufficient power may cause the ODD to malfunction
When in AV mode, the ODD may malfunction due to incompatibility with a few systems or the system tried writing some files to a disc. If you want to burn files to a disc, please switch to ODD mode when it is connected to a notebook or PC.
