• Do not write on the disc label in a heavy pen or ballpoint
pen.
Notes on CD-Rs/RWs
• You may have trouble playing back some CD-R/RW discs
recorded using CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives), either
due to their recording characteristics or dirt, fingerprints,
scratches, etc. on the disc surface.
• CD-R/RW discs are less resistant to high temperatures and
high humidity than ordinary music CD. Leaving them inside
a car for extended periods may damage and make playback
impossible.
• The unit may not successfully playback a CD-R/RW, that was
made by the combination of writing software, a CD recorder
(CD-R/RW drive) and a disc if they are incompatible with one
another.
• This player cannot play the CD-R/RW discs if the session is
not closed.
• Be sure to observe the handling instructions of CD-R/RW
discs.
• This player cannot play CD-R/RW discs which contain other
than CD-DA or MP3/WMA/AAC data (Video CD, etc.).
Notes on MP3/WMA/AAC
• The file extension for files encoded with the iTunes Apple
Lossless Encoder is “.m4a”, but such files cannot be played
on this player.

What is MP3/WMA/AAC?
MP3* (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows MediaTM
Audio) are the compression formats of digital audio. The former
is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group), and
the latter is developed by Microsoft Corporation. Using these
compression formats, you can record the contents of about
10 music CDs on a single CD media (This figures refer to data
recorded on a 650 MB CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of
128 kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz).
Notes on MP3/WMA/AAC
*MPEG Layer-3 audio coding technology licensed from
Fraunhofer.
AAC is an abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding”.
It has been defined as a standard for audio compression
technology using MPEG 2 and MPEG 4.
Note: MP3/WMA/AAC encoding and writing software is not
supplied with this unit.
Points to Remember When Making MP3/
WMA/AAC Files
Common
• High bit rate and high sampling frequency are recommended
for high quality sounds.
• Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not recommended
because playing time is not displayed properly and sound
may be skipped.
• The playback sound quality differs depending on the
encoding circumstances. For details, refer to the instructions
of your own encoding software and writing software.
MP3
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or more”
and “fixed”.
WMA
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “64 kbps or more”
and “fixed”.
• Do not set the copy protect attribute on the WMA file to
enable this unit to play back.
AAC
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or more”
and “fixed”.
• The formats and extensions for AAC data vary according to
the encoder software used.
• AAC files which can be played on this unit have the “.m4a”
extension and were encoded with Apple iTunes® version 7.
- 10 -
Caution
Never assign the “.mp3”, “.wma” or “.m4a” file
name extension to a file that is not in the MP3/
WMA/AAC format. This may not only produce
noise from the speaker damage, but also damage
your hearing.

• You are recommended to minimize the chances of making
a disc that contains both CD-DA files and MP3/WMA/AAC
files.
• If CD-DA files are on the same disc as MP3, WMA or AAC
files or the songs may not play in the intended order, or
some songs may not play at all.
• When storing MP3 data, WMA data or AAC data on the
same disc, use different folders for each data.
• Do not record files other than MP3/WMA/AAC files and
unnecessary folder on a disc.
• The name of an MP3/WMA/AAC file should be added by
rules as shown in the following descriptions and also comply
with the rules of each file system.
• The file extension “.mp3”, “.wma” or “.m4a” should be
assigned to each file depending on the file format.
• You may encounter trouble in playing MP3/WMA/AAC files or
displaying the information of MP3/WMA/AAC files recorded
with certain writing software or CD recorders.
