General Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a Micca product.
The Micca Slim-HD is a portable 1080p Full-HD digital media player. It is capable of
playing digital videos, music and pictures stored on an internal hard drive or from
SD/SDHC flash cards and USB 2.0 compliant storage devices such as USB drives and
portable hard disk drives. The Micca Slim-HD supports a wide range of media file
formats, allowing its users to enjoy digital contents on the go or in the comfort of his or
her living room.
One Device to Store All Your Media Files
The Micca Slim-HD is ideal as the central storage for your media files. With playback
quality as good as that of a computer, you will never need to spend time copying large
files back and forth between computers. Just take the Micca Slim-HD to wherever you
may have a TV or monitor and enjoy!
Perfect For Travel
The Micca Slim-HD is your perfect travel companion. Take your media files with you on
a business trip and playback wherever you can find a TV or computer monitor, from
showing customers a product showcase video, to catching up on missed shows the
comfort of your hotel room. Take the Slim along on a road trip and you’ll never run out
of videos to play back to the kids.
Maximum Versatility
The Micca Slim-HD is also a portable hard disk drive enclosure. Simply install any
SATA 2.5-inch HDD and connect it to your computer’s USB port and read/write to it as
you please. Choose your own storage space, whether it’s a 40GB drive left over from
an upgrade, or a new 1TB drive. The Slim is only slightly larger than a regular portable
hard drive – so if you are going to carry a portable hard drive, why not carry one that
can also play back the media files stored on it.
NOTE: For best compatibility, use 5400RPM drives by Western Digital, Toshiba,
Hitachi, or Samsung.

Hard Disk Drive Installation
The Micca Slim-HD has an integrated Serial ATA hard disk drive interface that is
compatible with SATA 2.5-inch internal hard disk drives up to 9.5mm in height. Proper
hard disk drive installation is critical the player’s proper and reliable function. For best
compatibility, use 5400RPM drives by Western Digital, Toshiba, Hitachi, or Samsung.
Without a hard disk drive installed, the Micca Slim-HD can still be used
to play media files from the card reader or USB devices.
Step 1: Remove the four case screws if present and carefully pry open the bottom cover.
Step 2: Lay the 2.5-inch SATA hard drive down flat in the drive bay and slide it towards
the SATA connector to make the connection.
Step 3: Secure the 2.5-inch SATA hard drive with the two silver drive screws. Ensure
that the hard drive is centered and not pulled to either side by the screws.
Step 4: Replace the bottom cover and install the four black case screws.

Product Layout and Connections
Copyright © 2009-2012 Micca, LTD. All rights reserved.
A. Power
Only use the supplied AC power adapter to provide 5.0-5.2VDC power to the Micca
Slim-HD. Using a different power adapter may damage the player. Do not cut off power
to the device while the unit is turned on as this may cause serious damage to the hard
drive and result in data loss. Make sure that the player is in standby mode before
disconnecting power. The player consumes a small amount of power in standby and
should be disconnected from power to conserve energy if not planned to use for a while.
The blue light on the player will always be on when power is
connected. It does not indicate whether the player is on or off.
B. USB to Computer
The supplied USB cable can be used to connect the Micca Slim-HD to a computer and
function as an external hard disk drive. No additional software or drivers are needed for
the Micca Slim-HD to be recognized by the computer. Once connected, files can be
copied to and from the Micca Slim-HD as desired using the standard file management
functions of the computer’s operating system.
The Micca Slim-HD will draw power through the USB cable when
connected to the computer and does not need 5.2VDC power.
If the hard disk drive is new, it will need to be partitioned and formatted before it can be
recognized and used by the computer. For directions on how to partition and format a
new hard disk drive within Windows XP/2000, please refer to the following Microsoft
tutorial: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000
The process is very similar for Windows Vista/7. The Micca Slim-HD is able to
recognize up to 4 FAT32/NTFS partitions on the hard drive. NTFS partitions are
strongly recommended for maximum efficiency, performance, and compatibility with
large media files.
To prevent data loss and potential hard disk drive damage, do not disconnect the Micca
Slim-HD from the computer until all file copy/move/delete activities have completed and
the blue status light is solid and not blinking.
Copyright © 2009-2012 Micca, LTD. All rights reserved.
C. Analog AV Output
The Micca Slim-HD can be connected to analog TVs and display devices through its AV
Out connector. Only use the supplied 3.5mm-to-RCA cable to ensure correct signal
polarity and avoid damage to the player and TV/display. The RCA cable connectors are
color coded to match the AV input on TVs and display devices as follows:
Red
Right Audio Channel
White
Left Audio Channel
Yellow
Composite Video
The Micca Slim-HD must be set to NTSC or PAL Composite mode for the analog AV
output to function. If there is no picture or the picture is distorted after connecting the
AV Output, press the <AV> button on the remote to toggle between NTSC and PAL.
D. HDMI Output
The Micca Slim-HD can be connected to HDTVs and digital display devices through its
HDMI connector, sending both audio and video signals over one cable. Only use HDMI
cables that have been certified to be v1.3a or higher to ensure signal quality. The Micca
Slim-HD’s HDMI output resolution can be set to 720p (50/60Hz) and 1080i/p (50/60Hz).
Do not plug/unplug the HDMI output with the power connected to the
player. Doing so may damage the player.
The Micca Slim-HD must be set to a valid HDMI output mode for the HDMI connection
to output a correct signal. By default, the Slim-HD will set itself to HDMI output when
powered on if a HDMI cable is detected. If there is no picture or the picture is distorted,
press the <HDMI> button on the remote to set the player’s output mode to 720p. Other
HDMI display modes can then be set through the Setting menu.
Note: The player cannot use both the HDMI and AV output at the same time and
will automatically use HDMI if an HDMI connection is detected on power up. Turn
the “Auto Detect HDMI” setting off in the settings menu to disable this feature.

Troubleshooting
The following are some common questions and answers. If the following does not
provide the answer you are looking for, please check the FAQ section on
http://content.miccastore.com to see if any updated answers have been posted. You
may also send an email to support@miccastore.com for personalized help.
No video output, or distorted video on screen.
Most likely, the player has not been set to the correct output mode. If connected using
the AV Red/White/Yellow cable to the TV, press the <AV> button on the remote to
toggle the output mode. If connected using the HDMI output to the TV, press the <HDMI>
button on the remote to switch the player to HDMI output mode.
Not detected by computer when connected via USB cable.
Do not connect the power to the player when it is connected to a computer. Ensure that
an internal hard drive is installed in the player. If the internal hard drive is new, it must
be initialized/formatted before it will be detected by the computer (See chapter IV
section B of this manual for instructions). Try connecting the player directly to a USB
port on the computer, instead of through any USB Hubs.
If the drive beeps, it may not be getting enough power from the USB port. It is
recommended to use newer 5400RPM drives made by Western Digital, Toshiba, Hitachi,
or Samsung for best compatibility.
Player will not recognize internal hard drive when playing media files.
If the internal hard drive is new, it must be initialized/formatted before it will be detected
by the computer (See chapter IV section B of this manual for instructions). Be sure that
the drive is initialized using MBR partition table and uses NTFS file system. It is
recommended to use newer 5400RPM drives made by Western Digital, Toshiba, Hitachi,
or Samsung for best compatibility.
