• The power requirements of this
unit are indicated on the AC
adapter. Check that the unit’s
operating voltage is identical
with your local power supply.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard,
do not place objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, on the
apparatus.
Installing
• Do not install the unit in an
inclined position. It is designed
to be operated in a horizontal
position only.
• Keep the unit and discs away
from equipment with strong
magnet, such as microwave
ovens, or large loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on
the unit.
Notes About the
Discs
• To keep the disc clean, handle
the disc by its edge. Do not touch
the surface.
Precautions
Road safety
Do not use the monitor unit and
headphones while driving, cycling,
or operating any motorized
vehicle. Doing so may create a
traffic hazard and is illegal in some
areas. It can also be potentially
dangerous to play your headsets at
high volume while walking,
especially at pedestrian crossings.
You should exercise extreme
caution or discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
On safety
• Do not expose the disc to direct
sunlight or heat sources such as
hot air ducts, or leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as the
temperature may rise
considerably inside the car.
• After playing, store the disc in its
case.
• Clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth. Wipe the disc from the
centre out.
• Do not use solvents such as
benzine, thinner, disc/lens
cleaners, or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• If you have printed the disc’s
label, dry the label before
playing.
Should any solid object or liquid
fall into the cabinet, unplug the
player and have it checked by
qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected
from the AC power source
(mains) as long as it is connected
to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the
player for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the player from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the
AC power cord (mains lead),
grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• Do not touch the mains lead or
the AC adaptor with wet hands.
Doing so may cause shock
hazard.
On temperature increases
Heat may build up inside the player
during charging or if it is being
used for a long time. This is not a
malfunction.
On placement
• Place the player in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a soft
surface such as a rug that might
block the ventilation holes.
• Do not place the player in a
confined space such as a
bookshelf or similar unit.
• To reduce the risk of fire, do not
cover the ventilation of the
apparatus with newspapers,
tablecloths, curtains, etc.
• Do not place the player in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, sand, moisture,
rain, or mechanical shock, or in a
car with its windows closed.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location,
or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the player. Should
this occur, the player may not
operate properly. In this case,
remove the disc and leave the
player turned on for about half an
hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the player, take
out any discs. If you do not, the
disc may be damaged.
• Keep the lens on the player clean
and do not touch it. Touching the
lens may damage the lens and
cause the player to malfunction.
Leave the disc lid closed except
when you insert or remove discs.
On Liquid Crystal Display
• Although manufactured with
high precision technology, the
LCD may occasionally display
dots of various colours. That is
not a malfunction.
• Do not wipe the LCD surface
with wet cloth. If water enters, a
malfunction may result.
• Do not place or drop any object
onto the LCD surface. Also, do
not apply pressure from hands or
elbows.
• If the player is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location,
moisture may condense over the
LCD surface. In which case,
wipe out the moisture with tissue
paper, etc., before use.
However, moisture condensation
will continue if the LCD surface
is cold. Wait until the surface
warms to room temperature.
On AC adaptor
Install this system so that the
mains lead can be unplugged
from the wall socket
immediately in the event of
trouble.
• Use the supplied AC adaptor for
this player, as other adaptors
may cause a malfunction.
• Do not confine the AC adaptor in
a closed place such as a
bookshelf or an AV cabinet.
,continued

• Do not connect the AC adaptor
to a traveler’s electric
transformer, which may generate
heat and cause a malfunction.
On battery pack
• Certain countries may regulate
disposal of the battery used to
power this product. Please
consult with your local authority.
• Because of the battery’s limited
life, its capacity gradually
deteriorates over time and
repeated use. Purchase a new one
when the battery holds about
only half the normal period.
• The battery may not be charged
to its fullest capacity when
charged for the first time, or
when it has not been used for a
long time. The capacity recovers
after being charged and
discharged several times.
• Do not leave the battery pack in
a car or direct sunlight, where
temperature goes up above
60 ºC.
• Do not expose to water.
• Avoid short-circuiting the
battery connecting jacks (A)
located on the bottom of the
player and the connecting jacks
(C) on the battery pack with
metal objects such as a necklace.
• Make sure dust or sand does not
enter the battery connecting
jacks (A) and the guide holes (B)
located on the bottom of the
player, and the connecting jacks
(C) and the guide holes (D) on
the battery pack.
• Use the supplied car adaptor for
this player, as other adaptors
may cause a malfunction.
• Do not dissemble or reverseengineer.
• Do not drop or apply shock.
• Do not touch the metal parts, as
it may cause a short and damage
the car adaptor, especially if
touched by other metal objects.
• Do not place the car adaptor in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight or
mechanical shock, or in a car
with its windows closed.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while
listening to a section with very low
level inputs or no audio signals. If
you do, the speakers may be
damaged when a peak level section
is played.
On headphones
• Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones at high
volumes. Hearing experts advice
against continuous, loud, and
extended play. If you experience a
ringing in your ears, reduce the
volume or discontinue use.
• Showing consideration for
others
Keep the volume at a moderate
level. This will allow you to hear
outside sounds and still be
considerate to the people around
you.

player. The adaptor is for a 12V car battery. Do not use it with a 24V car battery. The adaptor is
also for use with negatively grounded cars. Do not use it with cars grounded positively.

z Hint
If the car adaptor interferes with car operation, use a commercial cigarette lighter extension cord.
Notes
• Do not use the car adaptor if it has been dropped or damaged.
• Arrange the cord so as not to interfere with the driver. Also, do not place the LCD panel where the driver
can watch.
• If the picture is not clear, keep the player away from the car battery adaptor.
• Use the car battery adaptor with the car engine running. If it is used with the car engine off, the car battery
may become unusable.
• If the cigarette lighter socket is dirty with ash, etc, a bad connection may cause the plug to heat up. Always
clean well before use.
• The car battery adaptor may heat up while charging or after a long period of use. That is not a malfunction.
After using the car battery adaptor
After turning the player off, disconnect the car battery adaptor from the cigarette lighter socket.
Notes
• Do not turn off the car engine while the player is turned on. Doing so stops the power supply and may cause
damage to the player.
• Disconnect the car battery adaptor after use. Since some cars supply power to the cigarette lighter socket
even when the engine is turned off, the car battery may discharge over time.
• When disconnecting the car battery adaptor, hold the plug to pull it out.
• When listening to the car radio, disconnect the car battery adaptor from the cigarette lighter socket to avoid
noise.

About MP3 Audio Tracks
and JPEG Image Files
MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies the ISO/IEC MPEG regulations.
JPEG is image compression technology.
You can play DATA CDs/DATA DVDs that
contain MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image
files.
DATA CDs/DATA DVDs that the
player can play
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/
CD-Rs/CD-RWs) or DATA DVDs (DVDROMs/DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD-RWs/
DVD-Rs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio
Layer III) and JPEG format.
However, this player only plays DATA CDs
whose logical format is ISO 9660 Level 1 or
Joliet, and DATA DVDs of Universal Disk
Format (UDF).
Refer to the instructions supplied with the
disc drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.

CDs/DATA DVDs created in the Packet Write
format or multiple sessions.
MP3 audio track or JPEG image
file that the player can play
The player can play the following tracks and
files:
• MP3 audio tracks with the extension
“.MP3.”
• JPEG image files with the extension
“.JPEG” or “.JPG.”
• JPEG image files that conform to the DCF*
image file format.
* “Design rule for Camera File system”: Image
standards for digital cameras regulated by JEITA
(Japan Electronics and Information Technology
Industries Association).
Notes
About playback order of albums,
tracks, and files
Tracks and files within an album play in the
order of the recorded media (CD-R etc.).
z Hint
Since a disc with many trees takes longer to start
playback, it is recommended that you create albums
with no more than two trees.
Additional Information
• Change the extension to “.JPG,” for files with
“.JPE” or “.JPEG” extension.
• The player will play any data with the extension
“.MP3,” “.JPG,” or “.JPEG,” even if they are not
in MP3 or JPEG format. Playing this data may
generate a loud noise which could damage your
speaker system.
• The player does not conform to audio tracks in
mp3PRO format.
• Some JPEG files cannot be played.
• The player can display a file or track name up to
14 characters. Any characters after the 14th
character do not appear on the screen.
• Characters that are not displayable appear as “*.”
• Depending on the disc, a file or track name that is
not displayable appears as “*.”
• You cannot display correctly the CD-R/CD-RW
file names written in the UDF file system.
• When playing an MP3 audio track recorded in
VBR mode, you cannot display the bit rate
correctly.
Notes
• The player can recognize up to 299 albums
(including albums that do not contain MP3 audio
tracks and JPEG image files). The player will not
play any albums beyond the 299th album.
• The player can recognize a combined total of up
to 648 files, tracks, and albums. The player will
not play beyond the 648th file, track or album.
• Depending on the writing condition of the disc,
the total number of files, tracks, and albums
recognizable may be fewer than 648.
• The Album List displays only the currently
playing album name. Any album located on the
upper layer is displayed as “\..\.”
