Notes:
1. Customers should note that permission is required in
order to download MP3 / WMA files and music from the
Internet. ASUS has no right to grant such permission.
Permission should always be sought from the copyright
owner.
5. If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is
recorded in a compatible format, there are cases in which it
may not play because of the settings of the application
software used to create the disc. (Check with the software
publisher for more detailed information.)
2. Since the Blu-ray Disc specifications are new and
evolving, some discs may not be playable depending
on the disc type and the version.
6. This player requires discs and recordings to meet certain
technical standards in order to achieve optimal playback
quality.
3. Depending on the recording software & the
finalization, some recorded discs (CD-R/RW, DVD±R/
RW, BD-R/RE) may not be playable.
7. Depending on the conditions of the recording equipment
or the CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) disc itself, some CD-R/
RW (or DVD±R/RW) discs cannot be played on the unit.
4. BD-R/RE, DVD±R/RW and CD-R/RW discs recorded
using a personal computer or a DVD or CD Recorder
may not play if the disc is damaged or dirty, or if there is
dirt or condensation on the player’s lens.
8. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these
standards. There are many different types of recordable disc
formats (including CD-R containing MP3 or WMA files) and
these require certain pre-existing conditions to ensure
compatible playback.

This player can playback AVCHD format discs.
These discs are normally recorded and used in

DivX Plus HD was launched in 2009 and is the
brand name for the file type that DivX, Inc. has
chosen for their high definition video format. DivX
Plus HD files consist of high definition H.264/MPEG4 AVC video with surround sound Advanced Audio
Coding (AAC) audio, wrapped up in the openstandard Matroska container, identified by the .mkv
file extension. DivX Plus HD files leverage and
extend on Matroska's ability to support multiple
language tracks, subtitles, chapters, and additional
bonus content.
DivX® Plus HD Profile
DivX has defined profiles which are subsets of
MPEG-4/AVI and H264/MKV standards. Because
the grouping is a specific subset of what is in the
standards, there are certification processes for each
of the profiles that device manufacturers must
follow.
All DivX Plus HD certified devices bearing a DivX
Plus logo will adhere to the profile outlined in the
table below, as would any tools that support the
DivX profiles. DivX Plus HD devices are also tested
for compliance against the DivX HD 1080p profile
for MPEG4/AVI certification in order to maintain
backwards compatibility.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software
Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 021101301, USA
43
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute
verbatim copies of this license document, but
changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take
away your freedom to share and change it. By
contrast, the GNU General Public License is
intended to guarantee your freedom to share and
change free software--to make sure the software is
free for all its users. This General Public License
applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's
software and to any other program whose authors
commit to using it. (Some other Free Software
Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser
General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to
freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are
designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
distribute copies of free software (and charge for
this service if you wish), that you receive source
code or can get it if you want it, that you can change
the software or use pieces of it in new free
programs; and that you know you can do these
things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions
that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask
you to surrender the rights. These restrictions
translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a
program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give
the recipients all the rights that you have. You must
make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code. And you must show them these terms
so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright
the software, and (2) offer you this license which
gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or
modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want
to make certain that everyone understands that
there is no warranty for this free software. If the
software is modified by someone else and passed
on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems
introduced by others will not reflect on the original
authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly
by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger
that redistributors of a free program will individually
obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear
that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free
use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying,
distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING,
DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other
work which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder saying it may be distributed under
the terms of this General Public License. The
"Program", below, refers to any such program or
work, and a "work based on the Program" means
either the Program or any derivative work under
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the
Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with
modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
without limitation in the term "modification".) Each
licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and
modification are not covered by this License; they
are outside its scope. The act of running the
Program is not restricted, and the output from the
Program is covered only if its contents constitute a
work based on the Program (independent of having
been made by running the Program). Whether that
is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of
the Program's source code as you receive it, in any
medium, provided that you conspicuously and
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep
intact all the notices that refer to this License and to
the absence of any warranty; and give any other
recipients of the Program a copy of this License
along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of
transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer
warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the
Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work
based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these
conditions:
a. You must cause the modified files to carry
prominent notices stating that you changed
the files and the date of any change.
Appendix 44
b. You must cause any work that you distribute
or publish, that in whole or in part contains or
is derived from the Program or any part
thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no
charge to all third parties under the terms of
this License.
c. If the modified program normally reads
commands interactively when run, you must
cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to
print or display an announcement including
an appropriate copyright notice and a notice
that there is no warranty (or else, saying that
you provide a warranty) and that users may
redistribute the program under these
conditions, and telling the user how to view a
copy of this License. (Exception: if the
Program itself is interactive but does not
normally print such an announcement, your
work based on the Program is not required
to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a
whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not
derived from the Program, and can be reasonably
considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not
apply to those sections when you distribute them as
separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on
the Program, the distribution of the whole must be
on the terms of this License, whose permissions for
other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus
to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights
or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;
rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control
the distribution of derivative or collective works
based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not
based on the Program with the Program (or with a
work based on the Program) on a volume of a
storage or distribution medium does not bring the
other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a
work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or
executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
above provided that you also do one of the
following:
a. Accompany it with the complete
corresponding machine-readable source
code, which must be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
b. Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at
least three years, to give any third party, for
a charge no more than your cost of
physically performing source distribution, a
complete machine-readable copy of the
corresponding source code, to be distributed
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above
on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
c. Accompany it with the information you
received as to the offer to distribute
corresponding source code. (This alternative
is allowed only for noncommercial
distribution and only if you received the
program in object code or executable form
with such an offer, in accord with Subsection
b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred
form of the work for making modifications to it. For
an executable work, complete source code means
all the source code for all modules it contains, plus
any associated interface definition files, plus the
scripts used to control compilation and installation of
the executable. However, as a special exception,
the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source
or binary form) with the major components
(compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating
system on which the executable runs, unless that
component itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made
by offering access to copy from a designated place,
then offering equivalent access to copy the source
code from the same place counts as distribution of
the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object
code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or
distribute the Program except as expressly provided
under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,
modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void,
and will automatically terminate your rights under
this License. However, parties who have received
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not
have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since
you have not signed it. However, nothing else
grants you permission to modify or distribute the
Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.
Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program
(or any work based on the Program), you indicate
your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its
45
terms and conditions for copying, distributing or
modifying the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any
work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original
licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program
subject to these terms and conditions. You may not
impose any further restrictions on the recipients'
exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties
to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or
allegation of patent infringement or for any other
reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are
imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement
or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this
License, they do not excuse you from the conditions
of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as
a consequence you may not distribute the Program
at all. For example, if a patent license would not
permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly
through you, then the only way you could satisfy
both it and this License would be to refrain entirely
from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or
unenforceable under any particular circumstance,
the balance of the section is intended to apply and
the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to
infringe any patents or other property right claims or
to contest validity of any such claims; this section
has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of
the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many
people have made generous contributions to the
wide range of software distributed through that
system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or
she is willing to distribute software through any
other system and a licensee cannot impose that
choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear
what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of
this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is
restricted in certain countries either by patents or by
copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder
who places the Program under this License may
add an explicit geographical distribution limitation
excluding those countries, so that distribution is
permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish
revised and/or new versions of the General Public
License from time to time. Such new versions will be
similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ
in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version
number. If the Program specifies a version number
of this License which applies to it and "any later
version", you have the option of following the terms
and conditions either of that version or of any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation.
If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever
published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program
into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for
permission. For software which is copyrighted by
the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
Software Foundation; we sometimes make
exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by
the two goals of preserving the free status of all
derivatives of our free software and of promoting the
sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED
FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT
WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE
COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER
PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS"
WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY
APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY
OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED
Appendix 46
ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO
USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT
LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES
SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE
WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH
HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES.
