P Notes
To play the divided message
• You need a certain amount of free space in
the memory to divide a message.
• If 99 messages have been recorded in a
folder, you cannot divide a message. In that
case, reduce the number of messages to 98 or
less by erasing unwanted messages or by
moving some of the messages to another
folder before dividing a message.
• When you divide a message with a title and
artist name, the newer part has the same title,
artist name.
• You cannot divide a message other than the
one recorded using the IC recorder (MP3 file
transferred from a computer).
• Once a message is divided, you cannot
combine divided messages using the IC
recorder. To combine the divided messages,
use the supplied application software.
• If you divide a message with an alarm
setting, the same alarm setting remains only
with the former message divided.
• You may not be able to divide a message at
the beginning or at the end of the message
because of system limitations.
• If you divide a message during A-B Repeat
playback or one message repeat playback,
the repeat setting will be cancelled.
• If more than 10 seconds have passed after
step 1, you must start the procedure again
from the beginning.

Precautions
On power
Operate the unit only on 3.0 V or 2.4 V DC.
Use two LR03 (size AAA) alkaline
batteries or two NH-AAA rechargeable
batteries.
On safety
Do not operate the unit while driving,
cycling or operating any motorized vehicle.
• Do not leave the unit in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical
shock.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the unit, remove the batteries and have the
unit checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
• Be careful not to allow water to splash on
the unit. The unit is not water-proof. In
particular, be careful in the following
situations.
– When you have the unit in your pocket
and go to the bathroom, etc.
When you bend down, the unit may
drop into the water and may get wet.
Additional Information
On handling
– When you use the unit in an
environment where the unit is exposed
to rain, snow, or humidity.

If you touch the unit with wet hands or
if you put the unit in the pocket of
sweaty clothes, the unit may get wet.
• You may feel pain in your ears if you use
the headphones when the ambient air is
very dry. This is not because of a
malfunction of the headphones, but
because of static electricity accumulated
in your body. You can reduce static
electricity by wearing non-synthetic
clothes that prevent the emergence of
static electricity.
On noise
• Noise may be heard when the unit is
placed near an AC power source, a
fluorescent lamp or a mobile phone
during recording or playback.
