DVD-ROM Drive Information
(on selected models)
The DVD-ROM drive allows you to view and create your own CDs
and DVDs. You can purchase an optional DVD viewer software to
view DVD titles.
Regional Playback Information
Playback of DVD movie titles involves decoding MPEG2 video, digital
AC3 audio and decryption of CSS protected content. CSS (sometimes
called copy guard) is the name given to the content protection
scheme adopted by the motion picture industry to satisfy a need to
protect against unlawful content duplication.
Although the design rules imposed on CSS licensors are many, one rule
that is most relevant is playback restrictions on regionalized content. In
order to facilitate geographically staggered movie releases, DVD video
titles are released for specific geographic regions as defined in “Region
Definitions” below. Copyright laws require that all DVD movies be
limited to a particular region (usually coded to the region at which it is
sold). While DVD movie content may be released for multiple regions,
CSS design rules require that any system capable of playing CSS
encrypted content must only be capable of playing one region.
IMPORTANT! The region setting may be changed up to five times
using the viewer software, then it can only play DVD movies for the
last region setting. Changing the region code after that will require
factory resetting which is not covered by warranty. If resetting is
desired, shipping and resetting costs will be at the expense of the
user.

Internal Modem Compliancy
The ASUS Transformer Book with internal modem model complies
with JATE (Japan), FCC (US, Canada, Korea, Taiwan), and CTR21. The
internal modem has been approved in accordance with Council
Decision 98/482/EC for pan-European single terminal connection
to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). However due
to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different
countries, the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional
assurance of successful operation on every PSTN network
termination point. In the event of problems you should contact your
equipment supplier in the first instance.
Overview
On 4th August 1998 the European Council Decision regarding the
CTR 21 has been published in the Official Journal of the EC. The CTR
21 applies to all non voice terminal equipment with DTMF-dialling
which is intended to be connected to the analogue PSTN (Public
Switched Telephone Network).
CTR 21 (Common Technical Regulation) for the attachment
requirements for connection to the analogue public switched
telephone networks of terminal equipment (excluding terminal
equipment supporting the voice telephony justified case service)
in which network addressing, if provided, is by means of dual tone
multifrequency signalling.
Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the Notified Body and
the vendor: “This declaration will indicate the networks with which
the equipment is designed to work and any notified networks with
which the equipment may have inter-working difficulties”
ASUS Transformer Book E-Manual
101
Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the user: “This
declaration will indicate the networks with which the equipment
is designed to work and any notified networks with which the
equipment may have inter-working difficulties. The manufacturer
shall also associate a statement to make it clear where network
compatibility is dependent on physical and software switch settings.
It will also advise the user to contact the vendor if it is desired to use
the equipment on another network.”
Up to now the Notified Body of CETECOM issued several panEuropean approvals using CTR 21. The results are Europe’s first
modems which do not require regulatory approvals in each
individual European country.
Non-Voice Equipment
Answering machines and loud-speaking telephones can be eligible
as well as modems, fax machines, auto-dialers and alarm systems.
Equipment in which the end-to-end quality of speech is controlled
by regulations (e.g. handset telephones and in some countries also
cordless telephones) is excluded.

1 National requirements will apply only if the equipment may use
pulse dialling (manufacturers may state in the user guide that the
equipment is only intended to support DTMF signalling, which
would make any additional testing superfluous).
In The Netherlands additional testing is required for series
connection and caller ID facilities.
Federal Communications Commission Statement
This device complies with FCC Rules Part 15. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions:
•
This device may not cause harmful interference.

to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in
a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
104
ASUS Transformer Book E-Manual
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
WARNING! The use of a shielded-type power cord is required in order
to meet FCC emission limits and to prevent interference to the nearby
radio and television reception. It is essential that only the supplied
power cord be used. Use only shielded cables to connect I/O devices
to this equipment. You are cautioned that changes or modifications
not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void your authority to operate the equipment.
