forms on the optical parts of the player, do not
use the player for about one hour. The condensation will disappear naturally allowing normal
operation.

severe vibration may cause the sound to skip.
3. This unit uses a precision mechanism. Even in
the event that trouble arises, never open the
case, disassemble the unit, or lubricate the rotating parts.

MP3/WMA
What is MP3?
MP3 is an audio compression method and classified into audio layer 3 of MPEG standards.
This audio compression method has penetrated
into PC users and become a standard format.
This MP3 features the original audio data compression to about 10 percent of its initial size
with a high sound quality. This means that about
10 music CDs can be recorded on a CD-R disc
or CD-RW disc to allow a long listening time
without having to change CDs.
What is WMA?
WMA is the abbreviation of Windows Media Audio, an audio file format developed by Microsoft
Corporation.
Notes:
• If you play a file with DRM (Digital Rights Management) for WMA remaining ON, no audio is
output. (The WMA indicator blinks.)
• Windows Media™, and the Windows ® logo are
trademarks, or registered trademarks of Microsoft
Corporation in the United States and/or other
countries.
●To disable DRM (Digital Rights Management):
1. When using Windows Media Player 8, click

Bit rate: 8 kbps-320 kbps / VBR
2. WMA: Bit rate 48 kbps-192 kbps
● File extensions
1. Always add a file extension “.MP3” or “.WMA”
to MP3 or WMA file by using single byte letters. If you add a file extension other than
specified or forget to add the file extension ,
the file cannot be played.

DXZ845MC
2. Files without MP3/WMA data will not play.
The indication “– –:– –” appears in the play
time display if you attempt to play files without MP3/WMA data.
● Logical format (File system)
1. When writing MP3/WMA file on a CD-R disc
or CD-RW disc, please select “ISO9660 level
1, 2 or JOLIET or Romeo” as the writing software format. Normal play may not be possible
if the disc is recorded on another format.
2. The folder name and file name can be displayed as the title during MP3/WMA play but
the title must be within 128 single byte alphabetical letters and numerals (including an extension).
3. Do not affix a name to a file inside a folder
having the same name.
● Folder structure
1. A disc with a folder having more than 8 hierarchical levels will be impossible.
● Number of files or folders
1. Up to 255 files can be recognized per folder.
Up to 500 files can be played.

About the 2-ZONE function
The 2-ZONE function is a function that outputs
separate sounds from the MAIN zone and SUB
zone by simultaneously operating two sources in
the one center unit, thereby allowing plural listeners to enjoy separate music sources.
This unit can control its internal sources (radio,
CD, MP3, MC, etc.) to play back them, and further, can simultaneously play back sources from
external equipment connected via CeNET (for
instance, CD changers etc.).
The sources of the MAIN zone are played back
from the speakers of the vehicle side, and those
of the SUB zone are from the headphone systems (WH104/WH204).
Notes:
• Except AUX, the MAIN and SUB zones cannot simultaneously use sources inside this unit.
Also, external equipment connected via CeNET
cannot simultaneously be used.
• The TV mode while the 2-ZONE function is tuned
on is forced to change to “VTR playback.”
• The ISR function cannot be operated when the 2ZONE function is turned on.
• The Audio mode and ADF (Anti Distortion Filter)
function cannot be set for the sources of the SUB
zone.
Setting the 2-ZONE function
The initial setting is “OFF”.
When you have set the 2-ZONE function to “ON”
