class device *3
Playable files stored on a computer
• Even though listed above, some types may be
unplayable.
*1 Discs should be finalized before being played
back.
*2 For files recorded on a DVD-R/DVD-RW, the
disc should be formatted with UDF Bridge.
*3 This system may not recognize some USB
mass storage class devices. This system cannot play back a file whose data volume is more
than 2 gigabytes and a file whose data transfer
rate is more than 2 Mbps.
It is possible to play back finalized +R/+RW (DVD
Video Format only) discs. “DVD” lights on the front
display panel when a +R/+RW disc is loaded.
Some discs may not be played back because of
their disc characteristics, recording conditions, or
damage or stains on them.
Only sounds can be played back from the following
discs:
MIX-MODE CD
CD-G
CD-EXTRA
CD TEXT
This system is designed for use with the NTSC
standard.

DVD VIDEO, VCD, SVCD, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R,
DVD-RW, +R, +RW
MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, ASF, DivX, MPEG1, MPEG2
Refer to the separate volume of the operation manual for
the network function.
Region code of DVD VIDEO
DVD VIDEO players and DVD VIDEO discs have
their own Region Code numbers. This system can
play back a DVD VIDEO whose Region Code
number includes the system’s Region Code, which
is indicated on the rear panel.
Examples:
If a DVD VIDEO with an improper region code
number is loaded, “REGION CODE ERROR!”
appears on the TV screen and playback cannot
start.
• On some DVD VIDEOs, VCDs, SVCDs or DivX
files, their actual operation may be different
from what is explained in this manual. This is
due to the disc/file programming and disc/file
structure, not a malfunction of this system.
• The following discs cannot be played back:
• DVD-ROM (except for MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF/
DivX/MPEG1/MPEG2 format), DVD-RAM, CDROM, CD-I (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, SACD, etc.
• Playing back these discs will generate noise and
damage the speakers.
• Damaged discs and discs in an extraordinary
shape (other than a disc of 12 cm or 8 cm (4 3 4 ″
or 3 3 16 ″) in diameter) cannot be played back.
• JVC does not guarantee the operation and
sound quality of discs not authorized by CD-DA,
which is a CD specification.
Before playback, confirm that the disc complies
with this CD specification by checking the marks
and reading notes printed on the package.
Playable MP3/WMA/WAV/JPEG/
ASF/DivX/MPEG1/MPEG2 discs/
files
• CDs recorded in the ISO 9660 format are playable (except CDs recorded in the “packet write”
format (UDF format)).
• CDs recorded in the multi-session format are
also playable.
• Files with an extension of “.mp3”, “.wma”, “.wav”,
“.jpg”, “.jpeg”, “.asf”, “.divx”, “.div”, “.avi”, “.mpg”
or “.mpeg” (extensions with uppercase and lowercase letters mixed are also acceptable) are
playable.
• This system cannot play back DVDs recorded in
multi-session or multi-border format.
Notes on MP3/WMA/WAV/JPEG/
ASF discs/files
• A disc may not be played back, or reading it may
take a long time depending on its recording conditions or properties.
• The time needed for reading varies with the
number of groups or tracks (files) recorded on
the disc.
• If a character other than single byte English
characters is used in the file name of an MP3/
WMA/JPEG/ASF file, the track/file name will not
be displayed correctly.
• The order of tracks/groups displayed on the
MP3/WMA menu screen, and the order of files/
groups displayed on the JPEG menu screen
may be different from that of files/folders displayed on a computer monitor screen.
• In the case of MP3/WMA discs, since groups/
tracks are played back in alphabetical order, a
commercially available MP3/WMA disc may be
played back in an order different from that indicated on the label attached to the disc.
• Playing back an MP3/WMA file including a still
image may take a long time. The elapsed time is
not displayed until playing back starts. If playing
back starts, the elapsed time may not be displayed correctly.
• For an MP3/WMA file, a disc with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz and transmission rate of
128 kbps is recommended.
• This system is not compatible with MP3i or
MP3PRO.
• This system can play back a baseline JPEG file,
excluding monochromatic JPEG files.
• This system can play back JPEG data taken with
a digital camera conforming to the DCF (Design
Rule for Camera File System) standard (when a
function is applied such as the automatic rotation
function of a digital camera, data goes beyond
the DCF standard, so the image may not be displayed).
• If data has been processed, edited and restored
with computer image editing software, the data
may not be displayed.
• This system cannot play back animations such
as MOTION JPEG, still pictures (TIFF etc.) other
than JPEG, or image data with sound.
• The resolution of 640 x 480 pixels is recommended for JPEG files. If a file has been
recorded at a resolution of more than 640 x 480
pixels, display may take a long time. An image
with a resolution of more than 8 192 x 7 680 pixels cannot be displayed.
• The system supports ASF files recorded with the
maximum bit rate of 384 kbps and an audio
coder decoder of G.726.
• For a WAV file, a disc with a sampling frequency
of 44.1 kHz and a transmission rate of 16 bits is
recommended.
Notes on DVD-R/DVD-RW
• This system does not support a disc recorded in
multi-border format.
• This system does not support a disc recorded in
DVD VR format.

Confirming the connection to the computer
If “CyberLink Media Server” is not displayed
The main unit may not detect the CyberLink Media
Server for any of the following reasons.
Determine the reason by referring to A and B
shown below.
A The Ethernet cable may not be connected properly.
Possible cause:
The Ethernet cable may be of the wrong
type (a crossover cable may be used) or
may not be connected securely.
Possible solution:
Refer to “Connecting the main unit to the
router” on page 6 to check that the Ethernet cable is a straight-through cable and is
connected securely.
B You may be using a router that requires
the IP addresses to be set up manually.
Possible cause:
The router connected to the main unit may
not have a DHCP function that assigns the
IP addresses automatically. Another possibility is that the IP addresses may be
assigned manually without using the
DHCP function of the router.
Possible solution:
The IP address of the main unit must be
set up manually. Click [Cancel] to close the
display on the computer screen and exit
CyberLink Media Server. Next, assign the

(Only for DD-8 and DD-3)
• Even though listed above, some types may be
unplayable.
*1 Discs should be finalized before being played
back.
*2 For files recorded on a DVD-R/DVD-RW, the
disc should be formatted with UDF Bridge.
*3 This system may not recognize some USB
mass storage class devices. This system cannot play back a file whose data volume is more
than 2 gigabytes and a file whose data transfer
rate is more than 2 Mbps.
DVD VIDEO, VCD, SVCD, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R,
DVD-RW, +R, +RW
MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, ASF, DivX, MPEG1, MPEG2
Refer to the separate volume of the operation manual for
the network function.
Region code of DVD VIDEO
DVD VIDEO players and DVD VIDEO discs have
their own Region Code numbers. This system can
play back a DVD VIDEO whose Region Code
number includes the system’s Region Code, which
is indicated on the rear panel.
Examples:
For Australia, Central and South America
It is possible to play back finalized +R/+RW (DVD
Video Format only) discs. “DVD” lights on the front
display panel when a +R/+RW disc is loaded.
For the Middle Eastern countries
Some discs may not be played back because of
their disc characteristics, recording conditions, or
damage or stains on them.
For countries/areas other than Australia, Central and South America, or Middle Eastern
countries
Only sounds can be played back from the following
discs:
MIX-MODE CD
CD-G
CD-EXTRA
CD TEXT
This system accommodates the NTSC and PAL
systems.
If a DVD VIDEO with an improper region code
number is loaded, “REGION CODE ERROR!”
appears on the TV screen and playback cannot
start.
• On some DVD VIDEOs, VCDs, SVCDs or DivX
files, their actual operation may be different
from what is explained in this manual. This is
due to the disc/file programming and disc/file
structure, not a malfunction of this system.
49
Unplayable discs
• The following discs cannot be played back:
• DVD-ROM (except for MP3/WMA/JPEG/ASF/
DivX/MPEG1/MPEG2 format), DVD-RAM, CDROM, CD-I (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, SACD, etc.
• Playing back these discs will generate noise and
damage the speakers.
• Damaged discs and discs in an extraordinary
shape (other than a disc of 12 cm or 8 cm in
diameter) cannot be played back.
• JVC does not guarantee the operation and
sound quality of discs not authorized by CD-DA,
which is a CD specification.
Before playback, confirm that the disc complies
with this CD specification by checking the marks
and reading notes printed on the package.
Playable MP3/WMA/WAV/JPEG/
ASF/DivX/MPEG1/MPEG2 discs/
files
• CDs recorded in the ISO 9660 format are playable (except CDs recorded in the “packet write”
format (UDF format)).
• CDs recorded in the multi-session format are
also playable.
• Files with an extension of “.mp3”, “.wma”, “.wav”,
“.jpg”, “.jpeg”, “.asf”, “.divx”, “.div”, “.avi”, “.mpg”
or “.mpeg” (extensions with uppercase and lowercase letters mixed are also acceptable) are
playable.
• This system cannot play back DVDs recorded in
multi-session or multi-border format.
Notes on MP3/WMA/WAV/JPEG/
ASF discs/files
• A disc may not be played back, or reading it may
take a long time depending on its recording conditions or properties.
• The time needed for reading varies with the
number of groups or tracks (files) recorded on
the disc.
• If a character other than single byte English
characters is used in the file name of an MP3/
WMA/JPEG/ASF file, the track/file name will not
be displayed correctly.
• The order of tracks/groups displayed on the
MP3/WMA menu screen, and the order of files/
groups displayed on the JPEG menu screen
may be different from that of files/folders displayed on a computer monitor screen.
• In the case of MP3/WMA discs, since groups/
tracks are played back in alphabetical order, a
commercially available MP3/WMA disc may be
played back in an order different from that indicated on the label attached to the disc.
• Playing back an MP3/WMA file including a still
image may take a long time. The elapsed time is
not displayed until playing back starts. If playing
back starts, the elapsed time may not be displayed correctly.
• For an MP3/WMA file, a disc with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz and transmission rate of
128 kbps is recommended.
• This system is not compatible with MP3i or
MP3PRO.
• This system can play back a baseline JPEG file,
excluding monochromatic JPEG files.
• This system can play back JPEG data taken with
a digital camera conforming to the DCF (Design
Rule for Camera File System) standard (when a
function is applied such as the automatic rotation
function of a digital camera, data goes beyond
the DCF standard, so the image may not be displayed).
• If data has been processed, edited and restored
with computer image editing software, the data
may not be displayed.
• This system cannot play back animations such
as MOTION JPEG, still pictures (TIFF etc.) other
than JPEG, or image data with sound.
• The resolution of 640 x 480 pixels is recommended for JPEG files. If a file has been
recorded at a resolution of more than 640 x 480
pixels, display may take a long time. An image
with a resolution of more than 8 192 x 7 680 pixels cannot be displayed.
• The system supports ASF files recorded with the
maximum bit rate of 384 kbps and an audio
coder decoder of G.726.
• For a WAV file, a disc with a sampling frequency
of 44.1 kHz and a transmission rate of 16 bits is
recommended.
Notes on DVD-R/DVD-RW
• This system does not support a disc recorded in
multi-border format.
• This system does not support a disc recorded in
DVD VR format.

Data hierarchy
Handling discs
DVD VIDEO
A DVD VIDEO consists of “titles” and each title
may be divided into “chapters”.
Title 1
Title 2
• Do not use any non-standard shape disc (like a
heart, flower or credit card, etc.) available on the
market, because it may damage the system.
• Do not use a disc with tape, stickers, or paste on
it, because it may damage the system.
• Do not bend the disc.
Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 1 Chapter 2
VCD/SVCD/CD
A VCD/SVCD/CD consists of “tracks”.
In general, each track has its own track number.

MPEG2 files
Audio, still pictures and video are recorded as
tracks/files on a disc or a USB mass storage class
device. Tracks/files are usually grouped into a
folder. Folders can also include other folders, creating hierarchical folder layers.
This system simplifies the hierarchical construction
of files and manages folders by “groups”.

Cleaning discs
Signal surface
Wipe the disc from
the center outward
with a soft cloth.
Scratches concentrated on a certain part
cause sound dropout.
• Be sure not to use thinners, benzenes, cleaners
for analog records, or other chemical agents.
Track 1 Track 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
/File 1 /File 2
Up to 150 files
This system can recognize up to 4 000 tracks/files
on a disc. Also, the system can recognize up to
150 tracks/files per group and up to 99 groups on a
disc. Since the system ignores the tracks/files with
numbers exceeding 150 and the groups with numbers exceeding 99, these cannot be played back.
If there are any type of files other than MP3/WMA/
WAV/JPEG/ASF/DivX/MPEG1/MPEG2 files on a
disc, those files are also counted in the total file
number.

Confirming the connection to the computer
If “CyberLink Media Server” is not displayed
The main unit may not detect the CyberLink Media
Server for any of the following reasons.
Determine the reason by referring to A and B
shown below.
A The Ethernet cable may not be connected properly.
Possible cause:
The Ethernet cable may be of the wrong
type (a crossover cable may be used) or
may not be connected securely.
Possible solution:
Refer to “Connecting the main unit to the
router” on page 6 to check that the Ethernet cable is a straight-through cable and is
connected securely.
B You may be using a router that requires
the IP addresses to be set up manually.
Possible cause:
The router connected to the main unit may
not have a DHCP function that assigns the
IP addresses automatically. Another possibility is that the IP addresses may be
assigned manually without using the
DHCP function of the router.
Possible solution:
The IP address of the main unit must be
set up manually. Click [Cancel] to close the
display on the computer screen and exit
CyberLink Media Server. Next, assign the
