Title: Information processing unit, information processing method, program for the same, recording medium for recording the program therein, and reproducing unit

Abstract: The present invention provides an information processing unit with improved operability. A reading section (10) reads information recorded in an optical disk, and outputs a read signal. A DSP (20) detects the read signal and processes to a reproducible form. A quick return button selects at least one of the processing details for starting or stopping the information processing and for changing a reproducing position of the information. When a reproducing state changing section (120) recognizes a change instruction for changing a processing state for the information, a reproduction control section (52) changes the processing state by the DSP 20 based on the processing details selected with the quick return button. Since the processing details for starting or stopping the information processing and for changing a reproducing position are previously stored in the reproducing state changing section (120) as commonly available change instructions, operating components can be simplified with the operability of the information reproducing unit (1) substantially improved.
