Seamless Link Technology*
This ensures that buffer under run - the cause of many write and rewrite failures - is eliminated. The "Seamless Link" technology allows the driver to monitor automatically the progress of the recording. If the data in the buffer falls below a certain level, then Seamless Link stores the RecEnd address - the point in the data to which the recording has progressed - and pauses the recording until the buffer is again full. The RecEnd address is then located and the recording progresses without problems. The gap between the stop and restart point on the recording is then closed by Seamless Link.
