Title: Image recording apparatus and control method thereof

Abstract: An image recording apparatus, for conveying a roll paper as a sheet and a cut paper as a sheet to record an image on the sheet, includes a sheet type selecting unit, a rotation amount measurement unit, a determination unit, a conveyance suspension unit, and a first conveyance restarting unit. The sheet type selecting unit allows a user to select a roll paper mode and a cut paper mode. The determination unit determines whether a conveyed sheet is the roll paper or the cut paper based on the rotation amount measured by the rotation amount measurement unit. The conveyance suspension unit suspends the sheet conveyance in response to it being determined that the conveyed sheet is different from the selected sheet type. The first conveyance restarting unit restarts a sheet conveyance by the conveyance suspended during the cut paper mode, by switching to the roll paper mode.
