Music recording is not possible.
! Is the audio cable well inserted into the LINE IN socket

The battery runs out faster.
! The built-in battery is dead. You need to replace it (see

The operation is unstable whilst the PC and the unit are

! Is the USB mass storage driver (on the setup CDROM) installed?
The unit does not play 12 hours although it is specified
in the operation manual.
! 12 hours of playback is based on MP3 files encoded at
a bit rate of 128 kbps. Power consumption is minimised
under this condition since the unit accesses the hard
disk only once every 28 minutes. Higher bit rate increases the access and power consumption leading to
less playback time.
In audio data information playback mode, I cannot find
a specific song which can be found under file browsing
mode.
! The SHARP Music Manager will build the audio data information database right after the audio data are transferred into the unit. If you stop transferring in before the
completion of file transferring, the SHARP Music Manager won't build the audio data information database
which is required under audio data information playback mode. Please click "Update Music Info" icon to
