• Because of their relatively low reflectance, DVD-RW discs
are more likely not to be playable on the unit than DVDR discs.
• Audio CDs which contain copy protection signals cannot
be played on the unit.
• Depending on the conditions of the recording equipment
or the CD-R/RW disc itself, some CD-R/RW discs cannot
be played on the unit.
• The unit cannot play the CD-R/RW discs that contain no

The materials for DVD discs are recorded in the PAL and
NTSC color systems.
Select the DVD recorded in the NTSC color system.
Notes on DVDs
Some playback operations of DVDs may be intentionally
fixed by software manufacturers. As this unit plays DVDs
according to disc content designed by the software
manufacturer, some playback features of the unit may not
be available, or other functions may be added.
Refer also to the instructions supplied with the DVDs.
Some DVDs made for business purposes may not be played
on the unit.
6 ENGLISH
Region code of the DVD player and DVDs
Handling the unit
This DVD player is designed and manufactured for playback
of region "1" encoded DVD software. The region code on
the labels of some DVD discs indicates which type of player
can play those discs. This unit can play only DVD discs
labeled "1" or "ALL." If you try to play any other discs, the
message "Check Regional Code" will appear on the TV
screen. Some DVD discs may not have a region code label
even though their playback is prohibited by area limits.
Disc-related terms
Title
The longest section of a picture or a musical piece on a
DVD, a movie for a picture piece on video software, or an
album for a musical piece on audio software. Each title is
assigned a title number enabling you to locate the title you
want.
The original shipping carton and packing materials come
in handy. For maximum protection, repack the unit as it
was originally packed at the factory.
When setting the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio may
be distorted during playback. In this case, position the unit
away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the unit after
removing the disc.
INTRODUCTION
When shipping the unit
To keep the surface clean
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray, near
the unit. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in contact
with the unit for a long period of time. They will leave marks
on the surface.
Handling discs
Chapter
Sections of a picture or a musical piece that are smaller
than titles.
A title is composed of several chapters. Each chapter is
assigned a chapter number, enabling you to locate the
chapter you want. Depending on the disc, no chapters may
be recorded.
Track
Sections of a musical piece on an audio CD. Each track is
assigned a track number, enabling you to locate the track
you want.
Do not touch the playback side of the disc.
Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not get
on the surface.
Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.
Cleaning the unit
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents, such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface of
the unit.
To obtain a clear picture
The DVD player is a high-tech, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or worn
down, the picture quality will be poor.
Regular inspection and maintenance are recommended
after every 1,000 hours of use. (This depends on the
operating environment.)
For details, please contact your Aiwa dealer.

there may be a considerable temperature increase inside
the car.
Notes on copyright
It is forbidden by law to copy, broadcast, show, broadcast
via cable, play in public, or rent copyright material without
permission.
This product features the copy protection function
developed by Macrovision. Copy protection signals are
recorded on some discs. When recording and playing the
pictures of these discs on a VCR, the picture noise will
appear.
This product incorporates copyright protection technology
that is protected by method claims of certain U.S. patents
and other intellectual property rights owned by Macrovision
Corporation and other rights owners. Use of this copyright
protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision
Corporation, and is intended for home and other limited
viewing uses only unless otherwise authorized by
Macrovision Corporation. Reverse engineering or
disassembly is prohibited.
8 ENGLISH
The maximum operating distance between the remote
control and the sensor of the unit is approximately 7 meters
(23 feet). If the operating range decreases, replace the
batteries with new ones.
NOTES
• When operating with the remote control, point the top of
the remote control toward the DVD player.
• If the unit is not going to be used for an extended period
of time, remove the batteries to prevent possible
electrolyte leakage.
• The remote control may not operate correctly when:
- There is an intense light, such as sunlight, in the line
of sight between the remote control and the DVD player.
- There is fluorescent lighting near the remote sensor in
the display window of the unit.
- Other remote controls are used nearby (those of a TV,
etc.).
General information on progressive scan
What is a progressive scan?
The conventional television system has 525 scan lines
making up a frame, but these are scanned in alternate
interlaced passes of the 262.5 odd scan lines and the 262.5
even scan lines (in the case of the NTSC color system).
Since its frame rate is 30 frames per second, one of these
passes, termed a field, occurs every 1/60 second. With
larger screens, since the whole screen is only refreshed
every 1/30 second, there can be noticeable flickers.
In distinction to this, a progressive scan is one where all of
the lines are scanned successively in a single pass. By
saving a field in memory, it is possible to convert an
interlaced video signal to a progressive scan, which then
allows the image to be refreshed every 1/60 second,
reducing flickers on a large screen.
Conventional interlaced scan
(525 lines)
262.5 lines
INTRODUCTION
This unit includes a progressive scan conversion circuit. This generates high-resolution progressive scan video, with a lower
flicker rate, allowing you to see the movie at its original quality.
Progressive scan
525 lines
Scan of one field (1/60 second)
Scan of whole frame (1/60 second)
Advantages of progressive scan conversion in the DVD player
Since the DVD player converts the video signal to a
progressive scan before digital-analog conversion, the total
number of conversions the signal undergoes is reduced,
compared with using a progressive scan conversion in the
television (see following figure). This reduces signal
degradation, and allows higher quality video playback.

Notes on connecting to a TV
Progressive scan connection
• If picture noise appears while playing copy-protected
DVDs, connect the unit directly to a TV. Do not connect
through a VCR, TV/VCR or AV selector.
• The unit cannot be connected to a TV which is not
equipped with a video input connector.
• Use a commercially available stereo-monaural audio cord
when connecting to a monaural TV.
• If you are connecting the unit to a TV equipped with an
S-video input connector, it is recommended that a
commercially available S-video cord be used to achieve
the best possible picture clarity.
If you are using a high-definition or "digital ready" TV that
is compatible with progressive scan signals, you can take
advantage of the unit's progressive scan output for high
quality video with less flickers. For more information on the
mechanism and features of progressive scan, see page 9.
About component video output jacks
(Y, PR/CR, PB/CB)
The component video output jacks output the different color
signals (PR/CR, PB/CB) and luminance signal (Y) separately
in order to achieve high fidelity in reproducing colors.
The descriptions of the component video input connectors
on TV sets may differ depending on the TV or monitor.
Among descriptions generally used are PR/PB/Y, CR/CB/Y
and R-Y/B-Y/Y.
PREPARATIONS
Before making connections
To use the unit's progressive scan output, you need
to:
– Use a TV that is compatible with progressive scan signals.
– Set the VIDEO OUTPUT switch on the rear of the unit to
"COMPONENT/PROGRESSIVE SCAN" before
connecting to the TV.
– Connect the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT (Y, PR/CR, PB/
CB) jacks on the unit to the component video input
connectors on the TV using commercially available video
cables.
– Set the "Progressive Scan" in the setup menu to "On"
for output of progressive scan signals.
CAUTION
DO NOT set the "Progressive Scan" in the setup menu
to "On" when connecting to a TV that is not compatible
with progressive scan signals. If you set "Progressive
Scan" to "On" in error, the picture will appear scrambled.
In this case, reset the unit by holding down s for more
than 5 seconds in stop mode. The original video output
will be restored and the picture will become visible again.

unit. Keep the cap handy. When not using the optical
connection, the dust cap should be replaced.
• Use either a commercially available optical cord or a 75ohm coaxial cord when connecting the unit to an AV
amplifier with a digital input jack. The supplied video cord
can also be used instead of a coaxial cord.
CAUTION
DO NOT select "DOLBY DIGITAL/PCM" or "Stream/PCM"
for the "Digital Audio Output" in the setup menu when
connecting to an AV receiver not equipped with a Dolby
Digital decoder or DTS decoder (with an optical or coaxial

Merely attempting to play a disc may cause a screeching
noise which could be harmful to your ears and damage
the speakers. In this case, be sure to select "PCM" for the
"Digital Audio Output".
Note on DTS-encoded discs
Set "Digital Audio Output" to "Stream/PCM" in the setup
menu, after connecting the digital output of this unit to an

Playing an MP3 Disc
Notes on MP3 discs
An MP3 file stores audio data compressed using MPEG 1,
the audio layer-3 file-coding scheme.
In this manual, we refer to what, in PC terminology, are
called "folders" and "files" as "albums" and "tracks",
respectively.
Notes on playing MP3
• The unit can play MP3 discs containing audio data
compressed using MPEG 1, the audio layer-3 file-coding
scheme and complying with ISO 9660. Note however,
that the unit may not play tracks in the order they were
recorded.
• The maximum allowable number of tracks and/or albums
in a disc is 200, including the root albums (directories).
• The maximum allowable depth of a nested album is 50,
including tracks.
• If a disc contains audio tracks and MP3 tracks, the unit
cannot play it.
• As for multi-session discs, the unit plays only the first
session.
• The unit can play only MP3 tracks which were converted
with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz and a fixed bit
rate of 128 kbps.
• The unit may not play MP3 tracks recorded using a packet
writing utility.
• The unit can play only MP3 tracks having a file extension
".mp3".
• It may take 30 seconds or more before the unit can start
playing MP3 tracks, depending on the number of
recorded tracks and the complexity of the album tree.
• If you play a non-MP3 track that has the ".mp3" file
extension, you may hear some noise.
• Digital audio signals cannot be output from the DIGITAL
OUT (OPTICAL/COAXIAL) of this unit, when playing MP3
discs. In this case, connect AUDIO OUT 1 or 2 L/R jacks
to the analog audio input jacks of the audio equipment
(see page 19).
Notes on display indications during playback
• Up to 8 characters are displayed for the name of a track.
• Characters other than uppercase letters ("A" to "Z"),
numerals ("0" to "9") and underscore ("_") may not be
displayed, or may be displayed in different characters.
• The elapsed play time may not be displayed correctly for
MP3 tracks.
• Depending on the condition of the recording equipment
or the CD-R/RW disc itself, a false track which cannot
be played on the unit may be displayed.
Notes on creating MP3 discs
• When converting audio data to MP3
Create MP3 files with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz
and a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps.
• When creating MP3 discs
Do not store more than 200 albums and/or tracks in a
disc.
• To play tracks in the order they were recorded
1. Use a writing software capable of recording MP3 tracks
(files) in numerical and alphabetical order. For details
on using the software, refer to the operating
instructions supplied with the software.
2. Use only one album. (Do not create a sub-album within
an album.)
3. Include a two or three-digit number at the beginning
of each album or track name so that the albums and
tracks are played in order.
<Example of recommended name structure>
01XXXXX.mp3
02XXXXX.mp3
03XXXXX.mp3
04XXXXX.mp3
05XXXXX.mp3
<Avoid using the following structure>
1XXXXX.mp3
5XXXXX.mp3
10XXXXX.mp3
15XXXXX.mp3
20XXXXX.mp3
(The beginning numbers determine the order, therefore
the tracks shown above will be played in the wrong
order, i.e., "1", "10", "15", "20", and "5".)
MORE FEATURES
The unit can play MP3 audio recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R
or CD-RW discs.
Before playing an MP3 disc, read the following notes.
Glossary
File extension:
A 3-character string added to a file name under the
Windows or DOS environment is called a "file extension".
A file extension is used mainly to identify types of files. The
file extension for MP3 files is ".mp3".
ISO 9660:
ISO stands for the "International Organization for
Standardization". ISO 9660 determines the file structure
for the CD-ROMs. This unit can play MP3 files recorded in
the format compliant with ISO 9660.
Nesting of folders (albums):
To organize data files stored in a PC, you can store related
files in a folder. A folder can contain other folders as well
as files. For example, folder A can contain folder B, and
folder B can contain folder C; this is called "nesting of
folders".
Session:
A session is one uninterrupted section of written data on a
disc.
A multi-session disc is a disc which has more than two
sessions.
