Notes on MP3 discs
When the disc is inserted, the unit reads all the files on that disc.

or non-MP3 files on the disc, it may take a long time for play to
begin or for the next MP3 file to start play.
We recommend that you do not save unnecessary folders or files
other than MP3 ones in the disc to be used for MP3 listening.
A folder that does not include an MP3 file is skipped.
Maximum number of files: 255
Maximum number of folders: 150 (including the root folder)
Maximum number of folders and files in total: 300
Maximum directory levels: 8
Folder names and file names can be displayed with up to 32
characters including quotation marks.
The characters A - Z, 0 - 9, and _ can be displayed on this unit.
Other characters are displayed as “_”.
This unit conforms to Version 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 of the ID3 tag
format. When the file has the ID3 tag information, “song title”, “artist
name” and “album name” can be displayed. If the file does not have
the ID3 tag information, “NO TITLE” appears instead of song title,
“NO ARTIST” appears instead of artist name and “NO ALBUM”
appears instead of album name. The ID3 tag information can be
displayed with up to 30 characters.
The characters may not be displayed correctly according to the
character code.
When naming, be sure to add the file extension “mp3” to the file
name.
