About Bit Rates

In OpenMG Jukebox, the bit rate for recording an audio CD can be chosen from among 132 kbps/105 kbps/66 kbps. The sound quality and available recording time after the conversion will be different depending on the selected bit rate. A

Higher value makes the sound quality better, but the size of the recorded data file will be bigger thus shortening the total Check-Out time available on your CLIÉ handheld.

Likewise, a lower value means lower sound quality, but lengthens the total

Check-Out time available on your CLIÉ handheld.

When you use an optional 128 MB MG Memory Stick media, you can record for approximately the following length of time:

• When you record at 132 kbps: approx. 120 min.

• When you record at 105 kbps: approx. 160 min.

• When you record at 66 kbps: approx. 240 min.

Importing songs via EMD

What is an Electronic Music Distribution (EMD) service?

EMD stands for Electronic Music Distribution, which is a generic name for services that distribute digital audio content via the Internet or other kinds of networks.

Notes on Memory Stick media

What is Memory Stick media?

Memory Stick media is a new compact, portable and versatile

Integrated Circuit recording medium with a data capacity that exceeds that of a floppy disk. The Memory Stick media is specially designed for exchanging and sharing digital data among Memory Stick media compatible products. Because it is removable, a Memory Stick media can also be used for external data storage.

Types of Memory Stick media

There are two types of Memory Stick media:

– MagicGate Memory Stick media (hereinafter referred to as MG

Memory Stick) (color: white) that is equipped with “MagicGate” copyright protection technology.

– Memory Stick media (color: purple) that is not equipped with

“MagicGate” copyright protection technology.

To play ATRAC 3 format audio files that are recorded or converted by

OpenMG Jukebox software on your CLIÉ handheld, you have to use a

MagicGate Memory Stick media. Be sure to use MG Memory Stick media with the logo.

When you play MP3 format audio files, you can use the standard

Memory Stick media.

For playback of ATRAC 3 and/ or MP3 format audio files

For playback of MP3 format audio files

Note

Your CLIÉ handheld supports Memory Stick media with a capacity of up to

128 MB.

48

What is “MagicGate”?

“MagicGate” is a copyright protection technology for the MG Memory Stick media and compliant products, such as your CLIÉ handheld. Authentication ensures that protected content is transferred only between compliant devices and an MG Memory Stick media, and that protected content is recorded and transferred in an encrypted format to prevent unauthorized copying or playback.

Notes on use

To avoid damaging data, do not:

• remove the Memory Stick media or unplug the AC power adaptor during reading or writing of data.

• use the Memory Stick media in a location subject to static electricity or electric noise.

TOC reading time depends on the number of songs

When you start Audio Player, the application starts reading the TOC information including the song name, artist name, etc., of the Memory

Stick media.

Depending on the number of songs stored in the Memory Stick media, this may take a few seconds. You cannot operate Audio Player while it is reading the TOC information; this is not malfunction.

On formatting the Memory Stick media

The Memory Stick media is shipped with a FAT format as the standard format.

To format the Memory Stick media, please use devices compatible with the Memory Stick media. For details, refer to the Operating

Instructions manual.

Note

If you format your Memory Stick media using your computer, further operation with your CLIÉ handheld is not guaranteed. Format the Memory Stick using the

CLIÉ handheld according to the procedures in the Operating Instructions manual.

Notes on using RealJukebox for Sony

Caution

When you use an external CD-ROM drive (including docking-stations)

While using RealJukebox for Sony software, do not connect/ remove the external CD-ROM drive. If you do, serious malfunction may occur. If you want to connect/remove the CD-

ROM drive, turn off your computer, then connect/remove the drive.

• Do not start both OpenMG Jukebox and RealJukebox for Sony concurrently. If you start both software, audio files on your computer or Memory Stick media may be damaged and cannot be played.

• With the RealJukebox for Sony software, you cannot move audio files that are compatible with the “Move Music” feature from

Memory Stick media. Note that if you delete audio files that are compatible with the “Move Music” feature using RealJukebox for

Sony software, these files are completely erased.

When you want to use “Move Music” feature, use OpenMG

Jukebox software. For more information of moving audio files, see

“Moving music from a MagicGate Memory Stick to your computer” of “Using music files in an external device or media” in the online

Help of OpenMG Jukebox.

If you want to transfer these files, use OpenMG Jukebox software.

50

Notes on using OpenMG Jukebox

What is “Check-In/Check-Out”?

After storing audio files on the hard disk of your computer, you can transfer them to a digital music player, such as the CLIÉ handheld, using OpenMG Jukebox.

Transferring audio files to a digital music player from your computer is called “Check-Out.” Returning Checked-Out audio files to that computer is called “Check-In.”

Check-Out

Check-In

You can Check-Out the same song up to three times at any one time.

If you Check-In the song at least once, you can Check-Out the same song again.

51

Notes on using OpenMG Jukebox

On copyright protection

OpenMG technology* allows you to enjoy digital music while maintaining the copyrights of its holders. OpenMG Jukebox encrypts audio files in OpenMG format and stores them on the hard disk of your computer to prevent unauthorized distribution.

* The copyright protection technology of your CLIÉ handheld conforms to

SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative) specifications.

Your CLIÉ handheld has some restrictions on recording and playback to protect copyrights. You can Check-In audio files only to the same computer from which they were Checked-Out. They cannot be copied or Checked-In to other computers. For details, see “Restrictions on copyright protection by OpenMG” on page 58.

You can Check-In audio files only to the computer from which they were Checked-Out.

You cannot copy or move audio files to another computer.

You cannot Check-In audio files to any computer other than the computer used for Check-Out.

52

Restrictions on audio content

High quality digital audio content is widely available through music distribution services on the Internet. To protect the copyrights of its holders from unauthorized distribution, some audio content is distributed with certain restrictions on recording and playback. For example, the playback period or playback count for the data may be limited.

Differences between the HotSync operation and the

Check-In/Out procedure

The Check-In (transferring digital audio files to your computer)/Out

(transferring digital audio files to your CLIÉ handheld) procedure differs from the HotSync operation in several ways.

When you perform the HotSync operation

• Since the HotSync Manager of the Palm Desktop for CLIÉ software manages the operation, the computer recognizes your CLIÉ handheld as a Palm OS compatible handheld.

• You can perform the HotSync operation even when your CLIÉ handheld is turned off.

• The data transfer starts when you press the HotSync button on the cradle.

When you perform the Check-In/Out procedure

• Since the OpenMG Jukebox software manages the operation, the computer recognizes your CLIÉ handheld as a USB Mass storage device.

• You cannot perform the Check-In/Out procedure if your CLIÉ handheld is turned off.

• Pressing the HotSync button will stop the data transfer.

53
