MP3/WMA OPERATION
Instructions for TFT control and Insert/Eject are the same for DVD and MP3
operation. Please see the DVD/Disc Video Operation section for information
about these topics.
Media and File Requirements
This player allows you to play back MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R/
RWs, DVD+R/RWs, and DVD-R/RWs. For CD-RW discs, please make sure it
is formatted using the full method and not the quick method to prevent illegal
disc operation.
Up to 1500 songs/files can be burned onto a disc for a DVD music mix. Do not
exceed this number of songs/files or disc readability problems may occur.
MP3 Format Compatibility
The file naming formats listed below are compatible with this unit:
• ISO 9660 – file name: 12 characters, file extension: 3 characters
• ISO 9660 – file name: 31 characters, file extension: 3 characters
• Joliet – 64 characters
If the file or folder name does not conform to ISO 9660 file system standards, it
may not be displayed or played back correctly. Use the following settings when
compressing audio data for your MP3 disc:
• Transfer Bit Rate: 128kbps
• Sampling Frequency: 48kHz
When recording MP3 up to the maximum disc capacity, disable additional
writing. For recording on an empty disc up to maximum disc capacity, use the
"Disc at once" setting.
MP3 Playing Order
When selected for play, files and folders (Folder Search, File Search or Folder
Select) are accessed in the order they were written by the CD writer. As a
result, the order in which they are expected to be played may not match the
order in which they are actually played. You may be able to set the order in
which MP3/WMA files are to be played by writing them onto a medium such as
a CD-R with their file names beginning with play sequence numbers such as
"01" to "99".
30
VM9224
For example, a medium with the following folder/file hierarchy is subject to
Folder Search, File Search or Folder Select, as shown below.
The VM9224 player will only recognize three folder levels and does not display
folders containing only other folders. In the example above, the unit will display
folders 3, 4, 6, and 8, but not 2 and 7 since they do not contain any tracks
directly. Folder 5 is not recognized at all since it is at the fourth level.
Inserting a USB Device or SD Card
NOTE: The USB port will recognize most USB flash memory devices and
portable hard drives (hard drives must be formatted to FAT32, NTFS is
not supported).

BLUETOOTH OPERATION
NOTE: Bluetooth operation requires optional BTM10 accessory.
About Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless radio connectivity technology that is
developed as a cable replacement for mobile phones, handheld PCs and
other devices. Bluetooth operates in 2.4 GHz frequency range and transmits
voice and data at speeds up to 1 megabit per second. Bluetooth was launched
by a special interest group (SIG) comprised of Ericsson Inc., Intel Corp., Nokia
Corp., Toshiba and IBM in 1998, and it is currently developed by nearly 2,000
companies worldwide. The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the
Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Audiovox Corporation is
under license. Other trademarks and trade names are those of their respective
owners.
NOTE: The line-of-sight distance between this unit and your cellular
phone must be 8 meters or less for sending and receiving voice and data
via Bluetooth wireless technology. However, the transmission distance
may become shorter than the estimated distance, depending on the
environment in use.
Before attempting to use the Bluetooth functions on the VM9224, you must
purchase and install the BTM10. When connected properly, the blue light
appears illuminated. Bluetooth features are only available when the BTM10 is
installed.
Please make sure your mobile phone supports Bluetooth functions (Headset
or Handsfree profiles or both). Adhere to the following guidelines for
successful operation.
• Before using Bluetooth functions, you must pair your mobile phone to the
VM9224 head unit (see “Pairing the Bluetooth System with Your Mobile
Phone and Head Unit”). To ensure the best reception for pairing and reconnection, please make sure the phone battery is fully charged before
you begin.
• Try to perform pairing within a few minutes of the phone being turned on.
• Once the unit has been paired with the phone, the unit’s model number,
“VM9224”, will be displayed on the mobile phone.
• To achieve the best performance, always keep the mobile phone within 3
meters of the head unit.
• Always keep a clear path between the mobile phone and the head unit.
Never place a metal object or any other obstacle between the mobile
phone and the head unit.

VM9224

•
Some mobile phones (like Sony Ericsson) may have a "Power Saving
Mode" option. PLEASE DO NOT use the power saving mode with the
VM9224.
Before accepting or making a call, make sure your mobile phone's
“Bluetooth function” is turned on.
To ensure the best conversation quality/performance, stay within one
meter of the BTM10 when talking.
To “disconnect” the mobile phone from the head unit, turn the Bluetooth
connectivity off on the mobile phone or touch the button.
Phone Book direct searching through the head unit is only available
if the mobile phone supports Phone Book Download. If the feature is
not supported, the head unit will display “Phone book not provided by this
phone” when an attempt is made to download a phone book.

Hands Free Profile (HFP)
To use a phone wirelessly with this unit, it is necessary to first establish a
connection using Bluetooth wireless technology. Connection is normally
established using HFP (Hands Free Profile), which gives you full control of
functions available on the telephone source. However, depending on your
phone, the connection may be made using HSP (Head Set Profile), making
some functions unavailable. This is a limitation of your phone, not the
VM9224.
Since there are a number of Bluetooth mobile phone implementations
available on the market, operations with your Bluetooth mobile phone using
this unit vary greatly.
Please refer to the instruction manual that came with your Bluetooth mobile
phone along with this manual while operating your phone with this unit.

Care and Maintenance
1. Use only a clean silicone cloth and neutral detergent to clean the front
panel or monitor. A rough cloth and non-neutral detergent (such as alcohol) may result in scratching or discoloration.
2. Do not get water or cleaning fluids on the unit.
3. If the temperature inside the player gets too hot, a protective circuit
automatically stops play of the disc. If this occurs, allow the unit to cool
before operating the player again.
4. Never insert anything other than a 5” (12 cm) compact disc into the player
as the mechanism can be damaged by foreign objects.
5. Do not attempt to use a 3” (8 cm) CD-Single disc in this unit, either with or
without an adaptor, as damage to the player and/or disc may occur. Such
damage is not covered by the Warranty on this product.
6. The CD player may not operate properly in extreme hot or cold. If such
conditions occur, allow the interior of the vehicle to reach a normal
temperature before using player.
7. When the vehicle warms up during cold weather or under damp
conditions, condensation may appear on the LCD panel. Should this
occur, the screen will not operate properly until the moisture has
evaporated.
8. We suggest you use a cleaning disc in this unit more frequently than in the
unit in your home due to the environmental conditions of the vehicle.
