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 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.
¡ 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.
Notes on MP3/WMA (continued)
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows MediaTM
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

¡ You may have trouble playing back some CD-R/RW discs recorded on 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 can not be played back successfully thanks 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 contains other than CD-DA or MP3/WMA data.
¡ Be sure to observe the instructions of CD-R/RW disc for handling it.
