Title: Recording apparatus and method for recording image data on a removable recording medium having plural partitions

Abstract: Disclosed is a recording apparatus capable of recording image data on a removable recording medium having a plurality of partitions. The apparatus includes a partition recognition unit (1001) for recognizing partitions of a loaded recording medium; a recording/playback unit (105) for selectively recording on any partition of the recording medium; a association storage unit (1003) for storing association information indicating association between a recording setting and a recording-destination partition; and a system controller (106) for specifying a data recording-destination partition based upon the association information and adopting this partition as a recording-destination partition. As a result, in a recording apparatus for recording on a removable recording medium, it is possible to readily set a recording destination in a case where a plurality of partitions exist on a single recording medium.
