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 MEGA
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:

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".For example, a medium with the following folder/file hierarchy is subject to Folder Search, File Search or Folder
Select, as shown below.

Care and Maintenance
1. Use only a clean silicone cloth and neutral detergent to clean the front panel or monitor. A rough cloth and nonneutral 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) disc intothe 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 orunder 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.
