About the MDLP (MiniDisc Long Play) function.

The MDLP function has two modes.
The first mode is LP2 stereo recording (playback) under which a recording twice as long as the standard can be made on the MiniDisc.
The second mode is LP4 stereo recording (playback) under which a recording four times as long as the standard can be made on the MiniDisc.

The LP2 stereo recording (playback) mode is for long recording and playback. This mode is more suitable for recording long meetings and preparing discs to play in a car. It can record/playback in standard stereo mode. It can also record tracks in different MDLP modes on the same MiniDisc.
However, songs that have been recorded in the MDLP mode cannot be played on a set that is not MDLP-mode-compatible.
