¡

Do not scratch on a disc.

¡

Do not bend a disc.

¡

When not in use, keep a disc in a case.

Do not use irregularly shaped discs.

TEXT

Printed side

<Correct>

Do not use irregularly shaped discs.

<Wrong>

¡

You may have trouble playing back some CD-R/RW discs recorded using CD recorders (CD-R/RW drives), either due to their recording characteristics or dirt, fingerprints, scratches, etc. on the disc surface.

¡

CD-R/RW discs are less resistant to high temperatures and high humidity than ordinary music CDs. Leaving them inside a car for extended periods may damage and make playback impossible.

¡

Some CD-R/RWs cannot be played back successfully due to incompatibility among writing software, a CD recorder

(CD-R/RW drive) and the discs.

¡

This player cannot play the CD-R/RW discs if the session is not closed.

¡

This player cannot play the CD-R/RW discs which contain other than CD-DA data or MP3/WMA (Video CD, etc.).

¡

Be sure to observe the instructions of the CD-R/RW disc for handling it.

Recording MP3/WMA files on a CD-media

¡

You are recommended to minimize the chances of making a disc that contains both CD-DA files and MP3/WMA files.

¡

If CD-DA files are on the same disc as MP3 or WMA files, the songs may not play in the intended order, or some songs may not play at all.

¡

When storing MP3 data and WMA data on the same disc, use different folders for each data.

¡

Do not record files other than MP3/WMA files and unnecessary folder on a disc.

¡

The name of MP3/WMA file should be added by rules as shown in the following descriptions and also comply with the rules of each file system.

¡

You may encounter trouble in playing MP3/WMA files or displaying the information of MP3/WMA files recorded with certain writing software or CD recorders.

¡

The file extension “.mp3” or “.wma” should be assigned to each file depending on the file format.

¡

This unit does not have the play list function.

¡

Although Multi-session recording is supported, the use of

Disc-at-Once is recommended.

Supported file systems

ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Apple Extension to ISO 9660, Joliet,

Points to remember when making MP3/WMA files

Common

¡

High bit rate and high sampling frequency are recommended for high quality sounds.

¡

Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not recommended because playing time is not displayed properly and sound may be skipped.

¡

The playback sound quality differs depending on the encoding circumstances. For details, refer to the user manual of your own encoding software and writing software.

MP3

¡

It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or more” and “fixed”.

WMA

¡

It is recommended to set the bit rate to “64 kbps or more” and “fixed”.

¡

Do not set the copy protect attribute on the WMA file to enable this unit to play back.

Caution

Never assign the “.mp3”, or “.wma” file name extension to a file that is not in the MP3/WMA format. This may not only produce noise from the speaker damage, but also damage your hearing.
