A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates DVD recorded material on one side with digital audio material on the other side. However, since the audio material side does not conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard, playback on this product is not guaranteed. Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies This product is designed to playback discs that conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently, various music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies are marketed by some record companies. Please be aware that among those discs, there are some that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable by this product. Remove the overwrite protection tab from side A or B to prevent accidental recording. If you want to reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken tab using adhesive tape. Side A Notes If the AUDIO IN jack is connected to the monaural output jack of a digital music player, sound may not be emitted through the right speaker of the unit. If the AUDIO IN jack is connected to the line out jack of a digital music player, distortion may occur. If the sound is distorted, connect to the headphones jack instead. If the AUDIO IN jack is connected to the headphones jack of a digital music player, increase the volume of the digital music player, and then adjust the volume of the unit. If another station is already assigned to the selected preset number, that station is replaced by the new one. CD player section The power does not turn on when the AC power cord is connected. Make sure the AC power cord is connected to the wall outlet securely. The power does not turn on during battery operation. Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
