MP3 Mode
Getting MP3 Files Onto Your 506V:
The DXG-506V has the ability to play MP3 files. Only song files in the MP3 file
format can be played in the MP3 function. Files on CDs are usually in the
Windows Media format (.wma) or wav format and cannot be played in their
native format; they must first be converted into MP3 files. This can be
accomplished with many types of software which are available at little or no
cost.
Once the songs are in the MP3 format, they can be transferred to the MP3 folder
in the camera’s onboard memory or onto the SD card. This can be
accomplished by one of two ways: 1.) Attach the USB cable to the camera,
select “Mass Storage” and then use your PC to find the removable hard drive
( the camera / SD card). Once located, drag and drop the MP3 files into the MP3
folder. NOTE: Two removable hard drives will be visible if the camera has an SD
card inserted. 2.) The other way is to place the SD card into a card reader,
locate the MP3 folder, and drag and drop the MP3 files into the MP3 folder. The
card can then be re-inserted into the camera.
Once the files are in the MP3 folder, they can be played by rotating the mode
dial to the MP3 mode.

★Note:
1. The number of pictures you can take varies depending on the visual complexity of the
scene being photographed.
2. The minutes of music that your card can hold depends on the rate at which your
songs were recorded. The standard bit rate for MP3 recordings is 128 Kbps. The
bit rate (Kbps) is determined by the encoder software used to create your audio file.
The higher the bit rate, the better the audio quality (and the larger the file size).
3. To assure 100% SD card compatibility, we suggest using SD cards sold through
the DXG USA site. These cards have been tested and are guaranteed to be
compatible with this device. www.dxgusa.com/shop
