Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
consult a physician immediately.
Moisture Condensation
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.

Never Attempt the Following
Installation Location
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.
Make sure the CDE-9850Ri will not be installed in a location
subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Correct Handling
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
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.
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.
Centre Hole
INCORRECT
CORRECT
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 centre 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.

Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and never use
any special shape discs.
Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
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.

Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/
WMA data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it, whether
for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright holder is
strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by international
treaty.
What is MP3?
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 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 files
Audio data is compressed by using MP3/WMA specified
software. For details on creating MP3/WMA files, refer to the
user’s manual for that software.
MP3/WMA files that can be played back by this device have the
file extension “mp3” / “wma”. Files with no extension cannot be
played back. (WMA ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are supported)

Order of files
The unit plays the files in the order that the writing software
writes them. Therefore, the playing order may not be the same
as the order you input. The playback order of the folders and
files is as follows. However, the folder and file playback order
differs from the folder and file number indicated on the display.

Note that for sampling rates, this device’s frame display
(page 16) may not display correctly.
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA file, this device can display the title
(track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/WMA tag data.
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric
characters (up to 30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags)
and the underscore. For non-supported characters, “NO
SUPPORT” is displayed.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending
on the contents.
Producing MP3/WMA discs
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CD-RW
using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 510 files/
folders (including Root Folders). However, the maximum number
of folders is 255.
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.

MP3/WMA File
Terminology
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The
higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger
the files.
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
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into
the specified audio compression format.
Tag
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

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 and 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.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING
HOLES.
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.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING
SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
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.
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
SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space provided
below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial number or the
engraved serial number is located on the bottom of the unit.
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 INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
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.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDE-9850Ri. This will reduce any chance of damage
to the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour 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 CDE-9850Ri to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for
the intended circuit of the CDE-9850Ri 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 CDE-9850Ri 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.

Never Attempt the Following
Installation Location
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.
Make sure the CDE-9850Ri will not be installed in a location
subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Correct Handling
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
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.
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.
Centre Hole
INCORRECT
CORRECT
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 centre 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.

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

Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/
WMA data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it, whether
for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright holder is
strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by international
treaty.
What is MP3?
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 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 files
Audio data is compressed by using MP3/WMA specified
software. For details on creating MP3/WMA files, refer to the
user’s manual for that software.
MP3/WMA files that can be played back by this device have the
file extension “mp3” / “wma”. Files with no extension cannot be
played back. (WMA ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are supported)

Order of files
The unit plays the files in the order that the writing software
writes them. Therefore, the playing order may not be the same
as the order you input. The playback order of the folders and
files is as follows. However, the folder and file playback order
differs from the folder and file number indicated on the display.

Note that for sampling rates, this device’s frame display
(page 16) may not display correctly.
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA file, this device can display the title
(track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/WMA tag data.
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric
characters (up to 30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags)
and the underscore. For non-supported characters, “NO
SUPPORT” is displayed.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending
on the contents.
Producing MP3/WMA discs
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CD-RW
using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 510 files/
folders (including Root Folders). However, the maximum number
of folders is 255.
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.

MP3/WMA File
Terminology
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The
higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger
the files.
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
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into
the specified audio compression format.
Tag
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

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 and 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.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING
HOLES.
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.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING
SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
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.
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
SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space provided
below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial number or the
engraved serial number is located on the bottom of the unit.
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 INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
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.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDE-9850Ri. This will reduce any chance of damage
to the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour 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 CDE-9850Ri to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for
the intended circuit of the CDE-9850Ri 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 CDE-9850Ri 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.
