Title (EN) METHOD FOR FORMATTING AN OPTICAL DISC
(FR) PROCEDER POUR FORMATER UN DISQUE OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A device for recording information writes marks in a track on a record carrier of a re-writable type. The device records the information according to a predefined recording format like DVD for constituting a recording area containing user data preceded by a lead-in zone. The device has a formatting unit (36) for formatting the record carrier. First it is detected if the record carrier has been recorded before. If so, a size is determined of a pre­existing contiguously written area that extends from the beginning of the recording area. The formatting includes writing data on the record carrier indicating that the recording area does not contain user data. Formatting status information is provided on the record carrier indicating the size of the pre-existing contiguously written area.
(FR) Un dispositif pour enregistrer des informations inscrit des repères sur une piste d'un support d'enregistrement du type ré-inscriptible . Le dispositif enregistre les informations selon un format d'enregistrement prédéfini, comme le DVD, pour constituer une zone d'enregistrement contenant des données utilisateur précédée d'une zone d'amorce. Le dispositif possède une unité de formatage (36) permettant de formater le support d'enregistrement. Il est d'abord détecté si le support d'enregistrement a fait l'objet d'un enregistrement préalable, auquel cas on détermine la dimension d'une zone préexistante écrite de manière contiguë et s'étendant depuis le début de la zone d'enregistrement. Le formatage consiste à écrire des données sur le support d'enregistrement, ce qui indique que la zone d'enregistrement ne contient pas de données utilisateur . Le support d'enregistrement donne des informations quant à l'état du formatage, qui indiquent la dimension de la zone préexistante écrite de manière contiguë.
