MP3/WMA Playback
CD-R MP3/WMA file
When you record MP3 or WMA files on CD-R,
please refer to the following.
• Your MP3 or WMA files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET
format.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 or WMA files are
compatible with Microsoft's DOS and Windows, and with
Apple's Mac. This format is the most widely used.
• When naming your MP3 or WMA files, do not exceed 8
characters, and enter “.mp3, .wma” as the file
extension.
General name format of: Title.mp3. or Title.wma.
When composing your title, make sure that you use 8
characters or less, have no spaces in the name, and avoid
the use of special characters including: (.,/,\,=,+).
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 128
Kbps when recording MP3 files.
Sound quality with MP3 files basically depends on the rate
of compression/decompression you choose. Getting CD
audio sound requires an analog/digital sampling rate, that
is conversion to MP3 format, of at least 128 Kbps and up
to 160 Kbps. However, choosing higher rates, like 192
Kbps or more, only rarely give better sound quality.
Conversely, files with decompression rates below 128
Kbps will not be played properly.
• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 64Kbps
when recording WMA files.
Sound quality with WMA files basically depends on the
rate of compression/decompression you choose.
Getting CD audio sound requires an analog/digital
sampling rate, that is conversion to WMA format, of at
least 64Kbps and up to 192Kbps.
Conversely, files with decompression rates below 64Kbps
or over 192Kbps will not be played properly.
• Do not try recording copyright protected MP3 files.
Certain "secured" files are encrypted and code protected
to prevent illegal copying. These files are of the following
types: Windows MediaTM (registered trade mark of
Microsoft Inc) and SDMITM (registered trade mark of The
SDMI Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
• Important: The above recommendations cannot be taken
as a guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality. You
should note that certain technologies and methods for
MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal playback of
these files on your DVD player (degraded sound quality
and in some cases, inability of the player to read the files).
