Before Operation
Notes Regarding Discs
With some DVDs, the player starts playback automatically after inserting the disc, whether or
not PLAYBACK CONTROL is on or off.
The image may be poor, noisy or grainy due to defects on the actual disc, and some functions as
described in this manual may not be possible on all discs.
Maintenance of Discs
Handling
When handling discs, always hold them from their edges and/or by the circle in the center.
NEVER write on the any surface of the disc for it may render the disc unreadable.
Store discs in a clean and dry environment. Storing CDs vertically will also help prevent
warping.
After use, insert CD into jacket or case to minimize wear and tear. DO NOT stack CDs on top of
one another.
Do not bend or press the disc. Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or any heat source.
Cleaning
Wipe the discs from time to time using a soft cloth. Always wipe from the center towards the
edges, NOT in circular motions.
DO NOT clean with any other cleaning solution, unless it is specifically made for disc
cleaning.
CDs revolve at very high speeds inside of players. Never attempt to play cracked or warped
CDs, since doing so may cause the disc to shatter or the player to malfunction.
Power Cord
Handle the power cord only by its plug, and do not unplug it by yanking on the cord. Touching the
cord while your hands are wet may lead to an electric shock or a short circuit.
If the cord becomes damaged or its wires become exposed, please replace the cord as soon as
possible in order to prevent an electric fire or shock. Check the power cord every few months to
ensure it is functioning properly.

BASIC RECORDING OPERATION FOR MP3+G
WHAT IS MP3+G
An MP3+G file is a karaoke-based file format that consists of two parts, an audio file in MP3 format and a
graphics file that displays on-screen lyrics. These two files combined are called an MP3+G file. An MP3+G file
will occupy about the same disc space required for a standard CD+G track.
The recording function on this player offers two applications.
1. Record your vocal performance in MP3 (CD, VCD) or MP3+G(CDG,MP3G) format and share
with your friends.
2. Transfer your existing CDG’s to MP3+G format.
RECORDING A PERFORMANCE:
With a memory card already inserted, allow the this player to play a CDG in disc mode. You
should hear audio and see graphics on your screen. (During this time, you will want to make any
special changes that you want, (echo, key change, etc…..)
Next, simply press the “record” button on the player or the remote control. The player will restart the song from the beginning with your users settings applied. There will be a record
percentage symbol in the upper left corner of the screen letting you know the recording status. Now
you can begin singing and the player will record your performance.
Now you have recorded a track and you want to hear it. With your memory card inserted, press
the PLAYBACK button on the remote. A window will open displaying all files that are on the memory
card and machine will automatically select the last file you just record for playback. The song
should begin to play displaying the recorded graphic files on the screen too if you were using
MP3+G or CDG format while recording. If you are using other format like Mp3, CD or VCD file to
record your performance, only audio(music plus vocal) will be record, but no video will be recorded.
CDG DISC RIPPING TO MP3+G FILES:
This player can also be used to transfer CDG’s to MP3+G recorded.Being that an MP3+G file
only occupies about one eighth of the required space for a CDG, this is great way to back up your
CDG’s and protect your investment. Storing files as MP3+G gives you more options with your
music. For karaoke jockeys and people that frequent karaoke venues, you can now leave your
CDGs at home and only travel with your USB flash drive.
1. In disc mode, insert the CDG disc that you would like to rip. Make your sure
your desired memory card or USB drive is also inserted.
2. Go ahead and allow the disc to play. Press DISC RIPPING button on the remote while the disc is
playing.
3. In Options, select the ripping speed between 1x (real time) and 4x. You can also select the MP3
compression rate (bigger number, better sound quality, but also bigger file size, page 10).
