• HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is an interface to enable the digital transmission of video and audio data with just a single connector.
Using HDMI, the DVD player transmits a digital video and audio signal and displays a vivid picture on a TV
having an HDMI input jack.
• HDMI connection description
- Though the player uses a HDMI cable, the player outputs only a pure digital signal to the TV.
- If TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital content protection), snow noise appears on the
screen.
• Why does Samsung use HDMI?
Analog TVs require an analog video/audio signal. However, when playing a DVD, the data transmitted to a
TV is digital. Therefore either a digital-to-analog converter (in the DVD player) or an analog-to-digital
converter (in the TV) is required. During this conversion, the picture quality is degraded due to noise and
signal loss. DVI technology is superior because it requires no D/A conversion and is a pure digital signal
from the player to your TV.
• What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a system for protecting DVD content outputted via
DVI from being copied. It provides a secure digital link between a video source (PC, DVD. etc) and a
display device (TV, projector . etc). Content is encrypted at the source device to prevent unauthorized
copies from being made.

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.
- 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.
- When naming your MP3 or WMA files, do not exceed 8
characters, and enter “.mp3, .wma” as the file
extension.
General name format : 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: (.,/,\,=,+).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- This unit can play a maximum of 3000 files and 300 folders
per disc.
