  • Patent number: 7929830
    Abstract: In recording, reproducing, and recording/reproducing apparatuses and methods thereof, while endlessly-recording first data, desired second data can be easily stored. The present invention comprises recording means for endlessly-recording the first data in a recording medium, input means for inputting a start and end point of the second data out of the first data, and control means, when the start point and end point are designated, for controlling the recording means so as to endlessly-record the first data while avoiding a recording region for the second data. Thereby, the second data can be stored without replacing the recording medium even if the second data is endlessly-recorded. In addition, when the start point and end point of the desired second data out of the first data are designated, the start point and end point are recorded, and then the first data is endlessly-recorded based on the recorded start point and end point while avoiding the recording region for the second data.

  • Patent number: 7889971
    Abstract: In the case where an image data set stored in a recording medium of an image server or the like is linked to a Web page, an error message is prevented from being shown even if the image data set is deleted. Confirmation means confirms a storage period for the image data set. If the storage period has expired, character image generation means generates a character image data set of the same format and having the same file name as the image data set. The character image represented by the character image data set indicates deletion of the image data set. Compression means compresses the image data set and the compressed image data set is stored in another recording medium. The image data set is then deleted. When an access to the image data set is attempted, the character image data set is referred to.

  • Patent number: 7881590
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a method for reproducing contents information in an interactive optical disc device and a method for providing contents information in a contents provider server. The interactive optical disc device is connected with the contents provider server via the Internet to receive a variety of contents information provided from the contents provider server. When the sending of the contents information from the contents provider server to the interactive optical disc device is suspended or delayed due to a network connection loss on the Internet or an insufficient storage capacity of a buffer memory in the interactive optical disc device, contents information re-sent from the contents provider server and a data stream read from an interactive DVD are re-synchronized and reproduced. Therefore, a user of the interactive optical disc device can normally watch more various contents information.
