Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Samsung NeXus™ – our newest digital audio player
plus XM® Satellite Radio.
NeXus, Undocked
Like any digital audio player, you can enjoy listening to your music anywhere you go. But
NeXus offers more: dock the player into a home or vehicle cradle, plug in the XM Passport
and an antenna, and access XM’s 160 channels from coast to coast, with over 80,000 hours
of entertainment each month. XM offers musical choice, variety, and discovery – worlds beyond
your own collection – plus a wide range of news, sports, talk, comedy, kids, and entertainment
channels. Hear XM live, or save XM programming on your NeXus to listen at your leisure.
We’ve also teamed up with Napster, a leading provider of online music. Imagine discovering a
new artist on XM and then, with just a few clicks of a mouse, buying high-fidelity tracks and
albums by that artist and similar artists. It’s that simple.
We also provide you with the XM+Napster program that lets you manage all your music –
XM tracks, songs you purchase from Napster, and MP3/WMA files you rip from your CDs –
on one integrated package on your Microsoft® Windows® PC.
One device, all the music you could ever hope for, and the easiest way to find the music you
want – now that’s a music experience!

Recording XM
Your NeXus enables you to record XM content for personal, non-commercial use. You may
record XM content while listening to live XM or by scheduling a recording session. You can
then listen to recorded XM content on the go. You can also personalize your XM content by

To record XM content, you must dock NeXus in its cradle, insert XM Passport, and attach the
antenna and power adapter.
Recording a Single Song
1. While you’re listening to live XM, select XM Record Record Song. Don’t worry if
you miss the beginning of the song; your NeXus captures the entire song even if you start
up to 45 seconds after the beginning of the song, as long as you’re already tuned to that
channel.
2. By selecting “Record Song,” you instruct your NeXus to stop recording at the end of
the song.
3. To stop recording immediately, press the XM button and select XM Record Stop
Recording. If you change channels, NeXus automatically stops recording.

buttons to adjust each entry. Press the XM button to accept the entry and move to the

Locking and Unlocking XM Content
ENG
ENG xm_samsung keys
When you record XM, your NeXus records over the oldest XM tracks first. This ensures that
you always hear the latest XM content. You can “lock” a song or track to prevent NeXus from
recording over it. Locked songs occupy memory on your NeXus and reduce your available
recording time. Remember that you can buy high-fidelity songs or albums from XM+Napster
that can be stored either on your NeXus or on your PC.
1. While you’re listening to a song in “My Music,” press the up or down arrow buttons to
view the list of songs.
2. Highlight the song you want to lock.
3. Select XM Edit Song Lock Song.
4. Once you’ve selected an artist, you will see a list of the artist’s songs that you have recorded.
4. The locked song is indicated with a padlock symbol to the left of the song title.
5. Select the song you want to hear using the arrow and XM buttons. Select Play to begin
playing that song.
5. To unlock a song, highlight the song in the list and select XM Edit Song Unlock Song.
6. To return to the list of artists, press XM Find Artists and select another artist as in
steps 3 and 4.
7. You can also sort your tracks by categories or by channels. WMA and MP3 songs show the
category or genre that they are assigned to using their ID3 tags, which may or may not be
the same as the XM category. WMA and MP3 songs are also assigned to a channel named
“MP3/WMA.”

that play in a certain order. You can create a “morning drive” playlist, a “workout” playlist, a
“best of” playlist, and more.
After creating a playlist, you can edit it by rearranging its entries or by removing entries.
Remember that removing a song from one playlist does not remove it from any other playlist,
and does not delete that song from NeXus.

Updating NeXus Firmware
Occasionally we make improvements to the NeXus firmware, which is the software that
makes your NeXus player work. Updating the firmware is a quick and easy process.
Remember that:
Your NeXus must be docked in its cradle with a power adapter and must be connected
to your PC. You cannot update the NeXus firmware by connecting the NeXus player
directly to your PC; you must use the USB port on the cradle.
Your PC must be connected to the Internet
Using XM+Napster
If you have installed and use XM+Napster, it automatically checks the firmware when you
connect NeXus to your PC. XM+Napster notifies you when it’s necessary to update the
firmware. Simply follow the instructions.
Don’t worry if you miss a firmware update. XM+Napster will always check whether your
NeXus needs an update or not.
