Operating Instructions
WARNING
DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS IN
INSERTION SLOTS OR GAPS.
Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in serious injury
or death.
DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR
ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be
performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle
in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do
so may result in an accident.
KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL
HEAR OUTSIDE NOISES WHILE DRIVING.
Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency
vehicle sirens or road warning signals (train crossings, etc.) can be
dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD
VOLUME LEVELS IN A CAR MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING
DAMAGE.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or
material property damage.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the
product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest
Alpine Service Center for repairing.
DO NOT MIX NEW BATTERIES WITH OLD BATTERIES.
INSERT WITH THE CORRECT BATTERY POLARITY.
When inserting the batteries, be sure to observe proper polarity (+
and –) as instructed. Rupture or chemical leakage from the battery
may cause fire or personal injury.
PRECAUTIONS
MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
Product Cleaning
Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of
the vehicle and cause an accident.
Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of the product. For more
severe stains, please dampen the cloth with water only. Anything
else has the chance of dissolving the paint or damaging the plastic.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
Temperature
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +60°C
(+140°F) and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your unit on.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
Moisture Condensation
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
consult a physician immediately.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING
FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
You may notice the CD playback sound wavering due to
condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player and
wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.
Maintenance
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself.
Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service
Station for servicing.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.
USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.
Use for other than its designed application may result in fire,
electric shock or other injury.

Never Attempt the Following
Correct Handling
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the
player by the automatic reloading mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power is
off.
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you will not
leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or
gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.
CORRECT
INCORRECT
CORRECT
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not
attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
“Error” will be displayed on your player if you insert a disc
incorrectly. If “Error” continues to be displayed even though the
disc has been inserted correctly, push the RESET switch with a
pointed object such as a ballpoint pen.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in
skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.
Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the
CD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe the playing surface
with a clean, soft cloth from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a
solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.
New Discs
To prevent the CD from jamming, “Error” is displayed if discs with
irregular surfaces are inserted or if discs are inserted incorrectly.
When a new disc is ejected immediately after initial loading, use
your finger to feel around the inside of the center hole and outside
edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps or irregularities, this
could inhibit proper loading of the disc. To remove the bumps, rub
the inside edge of the hole and outside edge of the disc with a
ballpoint pen or other such instrument, then insert the disc again.

Disc Accessories
There are various accessories available on the market for protecting
the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of
them will influence the thickness and/or diameter of the disc. Using
such accessories can cause the disc to be out of standard
specifications and may create operational problems. We
recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine
CD players.

What is MP3?
Producing MP3/WMA/AAC discs
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3,” is a
compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International
Standardization Organization and MPEG which is a joint activity
institution of the IEC.
MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is
capable of compressing audio data at extremely high ratios,
reducing the size of music files to as much as one-tenth their
original size. This is achieved while still maintaining near CD
quality. The MP3 format realizes such high compression ratios
by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the human
ear or masked by other sounds.
What is AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a
basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
What is WMA?
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality
sound with small file sizes.
Method for creating MP3/WMA/AAC files
Audio data is compressed using software with MP3/WMA/AAC
codecs. For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to the
user’s manual for that software.
MP3/WMA/AAC files that are playable on this device have the
file extensions.
MP3: “mp3”
WMA: “wma” (ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are supported)
AAC: “m4a”
There are many different versions of the AAC format. Confirm
that the software being used conforms to the acceptable
formats listed above. It’s possible that the format may be
unplayable even though the extension is valid.
Playback of AAC files encoded by iTunes version 7.0 or earlier is
supported.
MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CDRW using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 510 files/
folders (including Root Folders), and the maximum number of
folders is 255.
Playback may not be performed if a disc exceeds the limitations
described above.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs,
and CD-RWs.
Corresponding File Systems
This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level 1 or
Level 2.
Under the ISO9660 standard, there are some restrictions to
remember.
The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the root
directory). The number of characters for a folder/file name is
limited.
Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z (all caps),
numbers 0-9, and ‘_’ (underscore).
This device also can play back discs in Joliet, Romeo, etc., and
other standards that conform to ISO9660. However, sometimes
the file names, folder names, etc., are not displayed correctly.
Formats supported
This device supports CD-ROM XA, Mixed Mode CD, Enhanced
CD (CD-Extra) and Multi-Session.
This device cannot correctly play back discs recorded with
Track At Once or packet writing.

Order of files
Files are played back in the order that the writing software writes
them to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not be what
is expected. Verify the writing order in the software’s

Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled
(recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz,
so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The
higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the
larger the volume of data.
Encoding

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 to 5 of this manual thoroughly for
proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical
skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer
where you purchased this product to have the work done.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product
damage.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM
SECURELY.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than
designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not
securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become
loose resulting in hazards or product failure.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE
NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other
equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of
the wire and result in fire or electric shock.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat
rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and
damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use
a rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from being cut by
the metal edge of the hole.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions
so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or
electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire.
Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of
moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may
result in product failure.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING
SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
Precautions
Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other
safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER be used for
installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable
control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDA-9885. This will reduce any chance of
damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the color coded leads according to the
diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to
malfunction or damage to the vehicle’s electrical system.
• When making connections to the vehicle’s electrical system, be
aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board
computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this
unit. When connecting the CDA-9885 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDA-9885 has the
appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to
the unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your Alpine
dealer.
• The CDA-9885 uses female RCA-type jacks for connection to
other units (e.g. amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may
need an adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact your
authorized Alpine dealer for assistance.
• Be sure to connect the speaker (–) leads to the speaker (–)
terminal. Never connect left and right channel speaker cables to
each other or to the vehicle body.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
consult a physician immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER
VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR
GEARSHIFT.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN
SURROUNDING OBJECTS.
Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to
prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct or
hang up on places such as the steering wheel, gear lever, brake
pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.
