CD-R MP3/WMA discs
When playing CD-R/MP3 or WMA discs, please follow all the recommendations for CD-R above,
plus the comments below:
• 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. These two formats are the most widely used.
• When naming your MP3 or WMA files do not exceed 8 characters, and place ".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 audio CD quality 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.

Conversely, files with decompression rates below 64Kbps or over 192Kbps will not be played
properly.

mode. When a program is recorded, the starting point is given an
Index mark for easy location. However, the VHS Index Search

cassette was recorded on a VCR without VISS. If you want to index
two programs in a row, set your VCR to stop, then start recording
each program. Pause has no effect on index marks.
