Notes on MP3/WMA

What is MP3/WMA?

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows Media TM Audio) are the compression formats of digital audio. The former is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group), and the latter is developed by Microsoft Corporation. Using these compression formats, you can record the contents of about 10 music CDs on a single CD (This figure refers to data recorded on a 650 MB CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz).

Note:

¡ MP3/WMA encoding and CD writing software programs are not supplied with this unit.

Points to remember when making MP3/WMA files

Common

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

¡ 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 instructions 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 protection on the WMA file to enable this unit to play back.

Displayable characters

¡ Displayable length of file name/folder name: within 128 characters.

¡ Name files and folders in accordance with the standard of each file system. Refer to the instructions of writing software for details.

¡ ASCII character set and special characters in each language can be displayed.

ASCII character set

A to Z, a to z, digits 0 to 9, and the following symbols:

(space) ! ” # $ % & ’ ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ˆ _ ` { | }

~

Special characters

À Á Â Ã Å à á â ã å

Ä ä

Ò Ó Ô Õ Ö ò ó ô õ ö

Ù Ú Û Ü ù ú û ü

Note:

¡ With some software in which MP3/WMA format files have been encoded, the character information may not be displayed properly.

¡ Undisplayable characters and symbols will be converted into an asterisk ( ).

¡It is recommended that the length of the file name is less than

8 (excluding the file extension).

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.

Windows Media, and the

Windows logo are trademarks, or registered trademarks of

Microsoft Corporation in the

United States and/or other countries.

18

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

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

¡ 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.

¡ This unit does not have a 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,
