Introduction
• Be very careful and pay full attention to safety when
operating the audio controls while driving, otherwise
accidents may occur. Also be sure to set volume so that
you can still adequately hear sounds outside the vehicle.
Improper use can contribute to occurrence of a traffic
accident.
Introduction
Before using the deck
• Never continue to use the system if it is malfunctioning in
any way. If smoke, abnormal noises or abnormal odors
are noticed, turn off the power immediately.
Immediately turn off audio in such situations.
• Exercise caution as to the temperature inside the vehicle.
The temperature inside the vehicle can increase during
hot weather. Wait for the temperature inside the vehicle to
drop before using the unit.
Damage could result.
• Do not disassemble or modify the deck.
The deck has a precisely designed structure, so consult
your retailer in the event of any unsatisfactory
performance.
15
Introduction
Before using the deck
• Do not apply excessive force to the monitor.
Damage could result.
• Do not place items such as cups or cans on top of the
monitor, and do not leave the monitor tilted down when
not in use.
Damage could result.
• Do not insert any objects other than discs into the disc
slot.
Damage could result.
• Be careful not to get fingers or other objects behind

• When removing a disc from the deck, remove it in the
horizontally level direction.
Do not pull them up forcibly or press down on them
strongly while removing them.
Improper removal can scratch the disc, cause deck noise
or result in other damage.
16
• Water droplets can form on the inside of the unit during cold or rainy weather in
the same way car windows can fog up. (This is condensation.) When this
happens, the audio can jump and playback can stop, so ventilate or dehumidify
the vehicle for a short time before operating the equipment.
• To safeguard the components of the player, the unit will automatically stop when
a malfunction occurs. If the player will not operate even when messages
displayed on the screen are followed, consult with your equipment retailer
because it is possible that the unit has been damaged.
• It is possible that the sound will skip if the vehicle experiences violent motion on
rough roads.
Introduction
About discs
About playable discs
• An audio disc or DVD video disc bearing one of the marks below can be played.
When using DVDR/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 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 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 unit due to the
circumstances of the recording, special disc characteristics, scratches, dirt or
deterioration caused by long storage in the vehicle. DVDR/RW or DVD+R/RW
discs that have not been finalized will not play on the 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.
17
Introduction
Before using the deck
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 sound
jumping.
• Using a disc that has become dirty can scratch the disc
and result in sound jumping. 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
18
• 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.
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.
Introduction
About rental discs
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
• 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
come off in the disc mechanism.
About the LCD panel
• The LCD panel can appear to be white or black when seen from certain angles.
• The screen will be difficult to read when external light such as sunlight falls on
the display.

About MP3
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.
This unit has limitations on MP3 file standards and recorded media and formats that can be
used. Be aware of the following points when recording MP3 files.
Playable MP3 file standards
• Supported standards
:
MPEG-1 Audio Layer III
• Supported sampling frequencies :
32, 44.1, 48 (kHz)
• Supported bit rate
32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128 (kbps)
:
• Supported channel modes
:
stereo, joint stereo, dual channel, monaural
MP3
* Supports VBR.
* Does not support free format.
* Bit rates vary for MPEG-1 and MPEG-2.
Use 128kbps or lower for the MP3 bit rate. If the bit rate exceeds 128kbps, there
may be sound jumping during MP3 playback.
ID3 tags
MP3 files have an "ID3 Tag" that allows input of 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 deck. Recording of characters not included in ASCII code
will result in display of garbled characters.
Media
Media capable of playing MP3 includes CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs.
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.
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.
57
How to operate the MP3 player
How to use the MP3 player
Format of discs
The format of discs to be used must be ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2. Also be sure to use
"MODE 1" for recording. Discs recorded with "MODE 2" are not supported.
MP3 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
:
8 layers
• Maximum characters for folder names/file names :
31 (including "." and 3 letter file
extension)
• Allowable characters for folder names/file names :
A to Z, 0 to 9, _ (underscore)
• Number of files/folders possible on a single disc :
512
Each file that is not an MP3 file (files with extensions other than "MP3") is also counted as a
file.
Configuration example for CD supporting MP3
F1
Folder1
001.MP3
002.MP3

Folder301
F302
Folder302
F512
Folder512
Each file that is not an MP3 file
(example: 004.TXT) is also counted as
a file.
• A total of 1023 files and folders can be recorded on a single disc.
58
File names
Only files with the MP3 file extension ".mp3" can be recognized as MP3 and played. Be sure
to save MP3 files with the ".mp3" file extension.
Use half-width English capital letters to write "MP" of the extension.
Multi-sessions
Multisessions are supported and CD-R/RW with recorded MP3 files can be played. When
written with "Track at once", however, finalize the disc with session close or write protect.
Playing MP3
When a disc having MP3 files recorded on it is inserted into the deck, 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.
In order to speed up completion of the file check, it is recommended that you avoid recording
files that are not MP3 files and avoid establishing unnecessary folders.
MP3
While the system is checking the disc, the music that had been playing continues to play.
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.
When MP3 is being played, navigation operation will become slower. This is not a
malfunction of the system.
MP3 playing time display
It is possible that playing time will not be correct, depending on the writing condition of the
MP3 file.
* It is possible that playing time will not be correct when VBR Fast Up/Down is operated.
Display order of MP3 file/folder names
Names of MP3 folders and files within the same level are displayed in the following order.
1. MP3 files displayed first, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
2. Folders displayed next, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
If the ".mp3" file extension is attached to a file other than an MP3 file, that file will
be mistakenly recognized by the unit as an MP3 file and played, resulting in loud
noise output that can damage the speakers. Be sure to avoid attaching the ".mp3"
file extension to files that are not MP3 files.
59
How to operate the MP3 player
How to use the MP3 player
Making and playing MP3 files
MP3 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 music sites
There are many kinds of sites that distribute MP3 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.
Converting CD music to MP3 files
Prepare a computer with commercially available MP3 encoding software (conversion
software). (Some encoding programs available on the Internet do not require payment.)
Music data files in MP3 format can be made by inserting the music CD into the CD-ROM
drive of the computer and following the procedures of the MP3 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).
Writing to CD-R/CD-RW
MP3 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 (mode 1) for the disc format. Discs recorded with CD-ROM xA (mode 2)
cannot be played on this deck.
When playing back CD-R/RW
Insert a CD-R/RW disc having recorded MP3 files. The system will automatically determine
whether the disc is a music CD or a CD-R/RW with MP3 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 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 files are recorded on a disc, the system may take
some time to recognize the disc and it may not play the disc.

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
110
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 68
for details on region codes.
