After inserting a CD you wish to record, but before you begin recording, go into REC SETTINGS, and make sure the Auto REC is set to OFF. Within the same menu, your recording quality can also be set to Excellent (256 kbps) or Good (128 kbps), although the former compression rate will result in a lower number of songs on the HDD, so that's a personal choice you have to determine.
Insert your CD and hit REC; a menu follows. You can either choose individual songs at this point on the screen, or press Select All, or Select None. This last choice is somewhat redundant but allows you to cancel wholesale selections. After this, press OK, and the HDD will record either your selections, or all the tracks on the CD.
