Safety Precautions︱
These usage and safety guidelines are IMPORTANT! Please follow them carefully.
General Use

Unpack the contents of the MP330 package carefully.

Ensure USB connectors are the same size and shape before connecting – never force them

Always use the Transcend-provided power adapters and cables. Using incompatible cables may
permanently damage your MP330.

Never connect the MP330 to a USB hub. USB hubs connect to multiple devices at the same time,
resulting in inadequate or unstable power supply. This may cause damage to your digital music
player. Known problems caused by connecting to a USB hub include reduced playback time, random
resets, and in the worst case, permanent damage to the player‟s firmware.

Do not allow your MP330 to get wet or come in contact with water or any other liquids

Do not use a damp/wet cloth to wipe or clean the exterior case.

Do not use or store your MP330 in any of the following environments:
o
Direct sunlight
o
Next to an air conditioner, electric heater or other heat sources
o
In a closed car that is in direct sunlight

Always unplug the player once it is fully charged. Avoid charging the player for more than 12 hours.

Do not charge in high-temperature environments or while exposed to direct sunlight.

To maintain battery health, be sure to complete at least one full discharge/charge cycle per month.
Backing Up Data

Transcend does NOT take any responsibility for data loss, or damage during operation. If you
decide to store data on your MP330 we strongly advise that you regularly backup the data to a
computer, or other storage medium.

To ensure High-Speed USB 2.0 data transfer rates when connecting to a computer, please ensure the
computer has the necessary USB drivers installed. If you are unsure how to check this, please consult
your computer or motherboard User‟s Manual for USB driver information.
Caution: Risk of Deafness

Repeated or regular use of headphones or earphones at volume levels above 80 decibels can give a
false impression that the audio level is not high enough. Users may try to progressively increase the
volume control, therefore risking a dangerous noise level for their ears.

To protect your health and your hearing, keep the volume of your MP3 player below 80 decibels and do
not use for an extended period of time. Stop use if symptoms like headaches, nausea, or hearing
disorders occur.

Your MP3 player is limited to a volume level of 100 decibels.
8

Both the MP3 player and its accompanying earphones are compliant with the French regulation
concerning musical Walkmans (24th July 1998 Order).

Before using any other earphones, confirm that their technical specifications are compatible with the
original set.
Reminders

Make sure the

If you leave the digital music player plugged into a notebook computer that is running on battery power,
switch is not enabled before turning on the player.
the player will gradually drain power from your notebook‟s battery.

Follow the procedures in the “Disconnecting from a Computer” section to properly remove your MP330
from a computer.

