iPAQ Personal Mini-CD Player PM-1

Part Number 258650-001
Setting Up Your Player
Thanks for buying a Compaq iPAQ Personal Mini-CD Player PM-1, and welcome to the world of digital
audio.
What is Digital Audio?
Digital audio is a way of compressing recorded sound so that it takes up much less storage space. A
song is reduced to about 1/10 its size, allowing you to store much more music on one CD. There are
many types of digital audio formats, but MP3 is the most popular.
Why Digital Audio?
Digital CD players provide many benefits, including:
> Up to 6 hours of music on one mini-CD
> High-quality sound
> Organization and personalization of your music
> The ability to take your favorite music with you anywhere!
Is Your PC Ready for Digital Audio?
If you have a multimedia PC with a CD-RW or DVD-RW drive, you are probably ready to create CDs.
To use the MusicMatch Jukebox software included on the Installation CD with your PM-1, we
recommend the following computer requirements.
> 233 MHz processor
> Microsoft Windows 95 (with service pack 1), Windows NT 4.0 (with service pack 4),
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP
> 100 MB free hard drive space
> CD-RW or DVD-RW drive
> 64 MB RAM

Installing the Batteries
Your iPAQ Personal Mini-CD Player PM-1 is equipped with rechargeable batteries. You have the option
of listening to your favorite music on battery power or plugging the PM-1 into a standard electrical
outlet.
Note: Before using the PM-1 for the first time, the Ni-MH batteries should be charged for 8 hours.
To install the batteries, just follow these simple steps:
1. Slide the release lever on the side of the PM-1 to the open position to open the PM-1 cover and
access the battery compartment.
2. Push back the tab on the side of the battery compartment cover and lift up to remove it.
3. Place the rechargeable batteries that came with your PM-1 into the battery compartment according
to the diagram inside the compartment.
WARNING: Do not mix rechargeable batteries with non-rechargeable batteries.
COMPAQ IPAQ PM-1

Charging the Batteries
The battery icon on the display screen shows the amount of charge held by the batteries (when the PM-1
is not plugged into an AC electrical outlet). The battery icon is divided into three segments that indicate
the approximate power capacity of the batteries. Replace or recharge the batteries when the battery icon
goes blank.
To charge (or recharge) the batteries that came with your PM-1, plug the PM-1 into a standard electrical
outlet while the batteries are in the battery compartment. Do not charge the batteries for more than 8
hours because it will reduce the life of the batteries.
Using the Power Supply Adapter
Before using the power supply adapter, make sure your local voltage corresponds to the adapter’s
voltage. Only use the supplied adapter because other types of adapters may damage the player.
To connect the power supply adapter, plug the large two-pronged end into a standard electrical outlet
and plug the single-pronged end into the DC 3V socket on the player.
Note: Always disconnect the power supply adapter when you are not using it unless you are recharging the batteries.

When the player is finished reading the TOC, playback begins automatically. “MP3” is displayed on the
remote control’s LCD if the loaded disc contains MP3 files. “CD” and “CDA” are displayed if the
loaded disc is in a CD-DA format.
