• It is possible that the sound will skip if the vehicle experiences violent motion on
rough roads.
About playable discs
• An audio disc or DVD video disc bearing one of the marks below can be played.
When using DVD-R/RW (DVD-Recordable/ReWritable) and DVD+R/RW
(DVD+Recordable/ReWritable) discs, note that only those whose contents were
recorded in the video mode can be played. Discs whose contents were
recorded in the video recording (VR) mode cannot be played.
TEXT
• Discs that are compatible with Dolby Digital and bear the indication below can
be used.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories, Inc. "Dolby" and the double-D symbol are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
• It is possible that a CD-R (CD-Recordable) or CD-RW (CD-ReWritable) disc will
not play on the main unit due to the circumstances of the recording, special disc
characteristics, scratches, dirt or deterioration caused by long storage in the
vehicle. In addition, a CD-R or CD-RW disc written with CD-R, CD-RW or UDF
format that has not been finalized will not play on the main unit.
• It is possible that a DVD-R/RW (DVD-Recordable/ReWritable) or DVD+R/RW
(DVD+Recordable/ReWritable) disc will not play on the main unit due to the
circumstances of the recording, special disc characteristics, scratches, dirt or
deterioration caused by long storage in the vehicle. DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW
discs that have not been finalized will not play on the main unit. It may not be
possible to play a disc that has been recorded on a personal computer,
depending on the application setting and the environment.
• The CD-TEXT function can be used only with the CD-TEXT-compatible compact
discs available on the market. If it is used with CD-R or CD-RW discs,
characters may not be displayed normally.
• Do not use discs with transparent or semi-transparent portions within the
recording area, or C-thru discs, since they may not be accepted and ejected
properly and may not play properly.
18
Introduction
About handling discs
• Be sure to store discs in their cases and keep them out of
direct sunlight. Discs can warp and become unusable.
• Do not apply paper-based tape to either the recording
side or label side of a disc. Damage could result.
• Do not use discs on which there are cracks or large
warps. Damage could result.
• Do not touch the recorded side of a disc when handling it.
(This is the side with the rainbow-colored reflection.) The
disc may become dirty and that could cause the sound to
skip.
• Using a disc that has become dirty can scratch the disc
and cause the sound to skip. Use a commercially
available compact disc cleaner to clean a CD, wiping
lightly from the center to the edge.
About new discs
Rough Edges
Ballpoint pen
• You may notice that some brand new discs are rough
around the center hole or outside edge. Remove the
rough edges with the side of a ballpoint pen, etc. Flakes
from the rough edges may stick to the recorded surface
and interfere with playback.
19
Introduction
Before using the main unit
About rental discs
Cellophane tape
Recorded surface
• Do not use CD discs with attached cellophane tape,
rental CD discs with glue protruding from labels or discs
with the residue of peeled adhesives. Using discs with
those conditions can prevent the player from properly
opening and closing as well as cause other damage.
About specially shaped discs
• Specially-shaped or octagonal CDs, like heart-shaped
cannot be played. Do not attempt to play them, even with
an adapter, since they may damage the player.
• Please do not use a commercially available lens cleaner
because it may cause damage to the pickup of the player.
About disc accessories
• Do not use accessories (stabilizers, protective seals,
laser lens cleaners, etc.) sold for "improving sound
performance" or "protecting CDs." The changes in CD
thickness or outside dimensions made by these
accessories may cause problems in the player.
CD ring
20
• Please be sure NOT to attach any ring-shape protector (or
other accessory) to your discs. Those protectors are
commercially available and said to protect discs and to
improve sound quality (and antivibration effect), but they
can do more harm than good in regular uses. The most
common problems are Insert/Eject related problems and
"No playback" problems due to the protector ring that may
have come off in the disc mechanism.
Introduction
About TV
• When connection with the battery is cut due to changing it, changing fuses,
etc.,all preset channels will be erased.
• It may be difficult for the TV to maintain optimal reception due to variation
insignal strength or interference from other objects. The main causes of
interference are listed below.
• Visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to overhead train wires,
high-tension wires, traffic signals, neon signs, etc.
·Depending on the signal, buildings and mountains may adversely affect reception.
·Visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to radio broadcasting
or ham radio antennas.
·Signal reception will become extremely weak when driving through a tunnel.
·Signal reception will become weak when traveling at a great distance from the
broadcasting station.
·In some areas, visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to TV or
radio towers. This is due to the influence of electro-magnetic waves outside of
the reception range.
About the LCD panel

Because AUTO.P temporarily saves stations for the preset switches, stations saved
manually will remain in memory even if AUTO.P is used. By manually saving
stations that are used regularly, these manually saved stations can be restored even
after AUTO.P has been used, such as after traveling.
Touching AUTO.P while AUTO.P is being used or after AUTO.P has been used
will return the preset memories back to the condition they had before AUTO.P was

About MP3/WMA
MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer III) is a standard format for audio compression technology. By
using MP3, a file can be compressed to one-tenth the size of the original.
WMA (Windows MediaTM Audio) is the audio compression format by Microsoft. This can
compress files to a smaller size than MP3 can.

ID3tag/WMAtag
MP3 and WMA files have an "ID3tag/WMAtag" that allows input of text information so that
data such as song title and artist can be saved.
This unit supports ID3v.1.0 and ID3v.1.1 tags. Use only ASCII code to record tags, since only
ASCII code is supported by this equipment. Recording of characters not included in ASCII
code will result in display of garbled characters.
This unit supports the WMA tag (v1.20.02). Since the WMA tag supports unicode only,
please input the information with unicode characters.
Media
Compared to CD-ROM media commonly used for music discs, CD-R and CD-RW discs are
fragile in high temperature/high humidity environments and one section of the CD-R/CD-RW
may become incapable of playback. Fingerprints or scratches on the disc may prevent
playback or cause skipping during playback.
MP3/WMA
Media capable of playing MP3/WMA includes CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs.
Sections of CD-R/CD-RW may deteriorate if left inside a vehicle for long periods of time.
It is also recommended that CD-R/CD-RW discs be kept in a light-blocking case because the
discs are vulnerable to ultra-violet light.
73

Format of discs
The format of discs to be used must be as following:
• Disc format
:
CD-ROM (MODE 1), CD-ROM XA
(MODE2 Form1)
• File format
:
ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2
ROMEO system, JOLIET system
MP3/WMA files recorded in a format other than the one explained above may result in files
that cannot be played normally and in file names and folder names that do not display
properly.
Limitations in addition to standards are as follows.
• Maximum directory layers
74
:
8 layers
• Maximum characters for folder names/file names :
30 characters for MP3 (including
delimiter "." + file extension 3
characters)
15 characters for WMA (including
delimiter "." + file extension 3
characters)
• Allowable characters for folder names/file names :
A to Z, 0 to 9, _ (underscore)
• Number of files possible on a single disc
:
384
• Number of folders possible on a single disc
:
127

How to operate the MP3/WMA player
How to use the MP3/WMA player
File names
Only files with the MP3/WMA file extension ".mp3/.wma" can be recognized as MP3/WMA and
played. Be sure to save MP3/WMA files with the ".mp3/.wma" file extension.
Use half-width English capital letters to write "MP3" or "WMA" of the extension.
Multi-sessions
Multisessions are supported and CD-R/RW with recorded MP3/WMA files can be played.
When written with "Track at once", however, finalize the disc with session close or write
protect.
Playing MP3/WMA
When a disc having MP3/WMA files recorded on it is inserted into the main unit, the system
first checks all the files on the disc. If the number of files and folders is large, the check will
take some time.
While the system is checking the disc, the music that had been playing continues to play.
In order to speed up completion of the file check, it is recommended that you avoid recording
files that are not MP3/WMA files and avoid establishing unnecessary folders.
In addition, it is recommended that you record all data in a single session because a
multisession disc takes time for CD control information acquisition.
MP3/WMA playing time display
It is possible that playing time will not be correct, depending on the writing condition of the
MP3/WMA file.
* It is possible that playing time will not be correct when VBR Fast Up/Down is operated.
Display order of MP3/WMA file/folder names
Names of MP3/WMA folders and files within the same level are displayed in the following
order.
1. MP3/WMA files displayed first, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
2. Folders displayed next, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
If the ".mp3/.wma" file extension is attached to a file other than an MP3/WMA file,
that file will be mistakenly recognized by the main unit as an MP3/WMA file and
played, resulting in loud noise output that can damage the speakers. Be sure to
avoid attaching the ".mp3/.wma" file extension to files that are not MP3/WMA files.
76
Making and playing MP3/WMA files
MP3/WMA files created by recording broadcasts, records, audio recordings, video
recordings or live performances cannot be used for purposes other than personal
entertainment without permission of the copyright holder as set forth in copyright law.
Downloading from Internet MP3/WMA music sites
Converting CD music to MP3/WMA files
Prepare a computer with commercially available MP3/WMA encoding software (conversion
software). (Some encoding programs available on the Internet do not require payment.)
Music data files in MP3/WMA format can be made by inserting the music CD into the CDROM drive of the computer and following the procedures of the MP3/WMA encoding software
to compress the songs of the music CD. A 12cm music CD (having a maximum of 74
minutes of recording/650MB of data) can be compressed to 65MB (about 1/10 of the original
size).
MP3/WMA
There are many kinds of sites that distribute MP3/WMA files on the Internet, such as "pay per
download" online shopping sites, "try before you buy" listening sites and free download sites.
Follow the rules for each site (such as paying fees) and download according to site
instructions.
Writing to CD-R/CD-RW
MP3/WMA files can be recorded on CD-R/RW by using a CD-R/RW drive connected to a
computer. Record by setting the recording format of the recording software to ISO9660 level
1 or level 2 (not including extension format).
Select CD-ROM ( mode1 ) or CD-ROM XA ( mode2 ) for the disk format.
When playing back CD-R/RW
Insert a CD-R/RW disc having recorded MP3/WMA files. The system will automatically
determine whether the disc is a music CD or a CD-R/RW with MP3/WMA files and begin
playing the disc. A music CD recorded onto a CD-R/RW can also be played. However,
depending on the type of disc being used, a disc may not play.
• A fixed bit rate of 128kbps and sampling frequency of 44.1kHz is recommended
for obtaining stable audio quality at playback.
• Depending on the characteristics of a disc, CD-R and CD-RW may not be able
to read the disc.
• Because there are many types of MP3/WMA encoding software available,
including commercial and freeware programs, audio quality may deteriorate,
noise may be generated when playing starts and some recordings may not play,
depending on the condition of the encoder and the file format.
• When files other than MP3/WMA files are recorded on a disc, the system may
take some time to recognize the disc and it may not play the disc.

even after AUTO.P has been used, such as after traveling.
Touching AUTO.P while AUTO.P is operating or after it has been used will return
the preset memories to their previous settings. (The channels saved with AUTO.P
will be deleted.) The diagram below shows how to switch between AUTO.P and

Precautions in use of the remote control
• Be careful when handling the remote control, especially because it is small and
light. Dropping or striking it hard may damage it, wear out the battery or cause a
malfunction.
• Keep the remote control free of moisture, dust and water. Do not subject it to
shock.
• Do not place the remote control unit where it will get hot, such as on the
dashboard or near a heater vent. Allowing the remote control unit to overheat
may warp its case or cause other problems.
• Do not operate the remote control unit while driving because doing so could
cause an accident.
• When using the remote control, point it directly at the remote control light
receptor.
• The light receptor may not operate correctly if it is exposed to bright light such as
direct sunlight.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control unit whenever it is not to be used
for a long time.
Cleaning the remote control
• Use a dry cloth to keep the unit clean. If the remote control unit gets extremely
dirty, clean it with a cloth moistened in diluted liquid detergent. Do not use
alcohol or thinner; these compounds may damage the finish.
• In no event should benzine or thinner be used. These substances will damage
the case or finish.

Glossary
CD-R
(Compact Disc Recordable)
CD-DA
(Compact Disc Digital Audio)
CD-RW
(Compact Disc ReWritable)
This disc is the standard for recording and
playing of music data. One track is recorded with
one song, and a maximum of 74 minutes can be
used with the CD.
This disc uses a phase transformation method
that enables recording and deleting of data as
many times needed. Capacity is 700MB (80
minutes of music).
EQ (Equalizer)
This enables setting of stronger or softer playing
of sounds throughout the high to low range of the
sound. Levels can be adjusted to personal
preference, enhancing enjoyment of the music.
MP3
• "MP3" is the abbreviation for "MPEG Audio Layer
(MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3)
LPCM
(Linear PCM)
MPEG
3," which is the standard format for compression
of audio data. MP3 technology compresses
sound in the range inaudible to the human ear,
producing a file one tenth the size of the original.
This is an abbreviation for Linear Pulse Code
Modulation, a signal recording method used with
music CDs. A music CD is recorded at 44.1kHz/
16 bit, but a DVD is recorded at 48kHz/16 bit ~
96kHz/24 bit, enabling a DVD to be played with
higher sound quality than a music CD.
This is an abbreviation for Moving Picture Experts
Group and is pronounced "empeg". It is the
international standard for moving image
compression. With DVDs, this method is also
used to compress and record digital audio.
Copy Control CD
This is a CD that has controls for preventing
computers from copying and ripping (taking
audio information recorded on a compact disc
and using it as data to create a file).
UDF
This is one format for use with optical discs not
reliant on the OS. It is used with media such as
DVD and CD-RW.
(Universal Disc Format)
Track
134
This is a disc that can only be recorded once.
Recorded data cannot be deleted. There are two
types of CD-R, one having capacity of 650MB
(74 minutes of music), the same as a regular CD,
and the other having capacity of 700MB (80
minutes of music).
The single division for a song on a music CD is
called a track.
Viewing Restriction
This is a DVD video function that "Restricts
playing of discs that support viewing restrictions,
in accordance with the regulated levels of each
country." Restrictions differ by DVD video and
may completely prevent playing of the video or
may skip or insert alternate scenes for extreme
scenes.
Title
This is the largest unit for divisions of video or
songs recorded on a DVD video. Usually a single
movie is treated as a title by video software and a
single album (or song) is treated as a single title
by music software. The consecutive numbers
attached to titles are called title numbers.
Chapter
This is a unit for divisions of video or songs
recorded on a DVD video, but it is a smaller unit
than a title. A single title is made up of several
chapters, and the consecutive numbers attached
to chapters are called chapter numbers.
This is one feature of DVD video, where
viewpoints of the same scene are changed by
recording from several different angles (camera
positions), allowing the viewer to select the
preferred angle.
Multi-Language
This is one feature of DVD video, where the same
scene is recorded with several different
languages and subtitles, allowing the viewer to
select the preferred language.
Region Code
DVD players and DVD discs have a region code
that enables playing by geographic marketing
regions, and a disc cannot be played if the
number recorded on the disc is not included in
the region codes of the player. Refer to page 90
for details on region codes.
