Create Your Own ATRAC CDs
In addition to the usual audio CDs, you can play an original CD, called “ATRAC CD,” that you
create with the supplied software, SonicStage. Using SonicStage, about 30 audio CDs* can be
recorded on one CD-R or CD-RW.
The following is a quick overview of how you listen to music on your ATRAC CD.
Install SonicStage on your computer.
SonicStage is software that takes music downloaded
from audio CDs on your computer and creates original
CDs. It can be installed from the supplied CD-ROM.
ATRAC CD
Create an ATRAC CD.
After selecting your favorite songs from music stored on
your computer, record them on a CD-R/CD-RW using
SonicStage.
Audio CDs,
MP3 files
Listen to them with this CD player.
You can take lots of songs wherever you go on your
original CD.
Please see the supplied “Installation/Operating Guide”
for how to install SonicStage and how to create ATRAC CDs.
* When the total playing time of one CD (album) is estimated at 60
minutes and you are recording on a 700 MB CD-R/CD-RW at 48 kbps
in ATRAC3plus format.

Music discs encoded with copyright
protection technologies
This product is designed to play back
discs that conform to the Compact Disc
(CD) standard. Recently, various music
discs encoded with copyright protection
technologies are marketed by some record
companies. Please be aware that among those
discs, there are some that do not conform to
the CD standard and may not be playable by
this product.
Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side
with digital audio material on the other side.
However, since the audio material side does
not conform to the Compact Disc (CD)
standard, playback on this product is not
guaranteed.
Difference in File structures of ATRAC CDs
and MP3 CDs
ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs consist of
"files" and "groups." A "file" is equivalent
to a "track" of an audio CD. A "group"
is a bundle of files and is equivalent to an
"album."
For MP3 CDs, this CD player recognizes an
MP3 folder as a "group" so that ATRAC CDs
and MP3 CDs can be operated in the same
way.
The usable number of groups and files
• Maximum number of groups: 256
• Maximum number of files: 999
Playing order of ATRAC CDs and MP3 CDs
For ATRAC CDs, files are played in the order
selected in SonicStage.
For MP3 CDs, the playing order may differ
depending on the method used to record MP3
files on the disc. A "play list" which contains
an MP3 file playing order can also be played.
In the following example, files are played in
order of  to .
6
MP3
Group
File
(Maximum directory levels: 8)
Notes
• If ATRAC3plus files and MP3 files are recorded
on the same CD, this CD player plays the
ATRAC3plus files first.
• The playback capability of this CD player may
vary depending on the quality of the disc and the
condition of the recording device.
• Acceptable characters are A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9,
and _ (underscore).
• On a disc that has ATRAC3plus/MP3 files, do
not save files in other formats and do not make
unnecessary folders.
About ATRAC CDs
• CD-Rs/CD-RWs recorded in the ATRAC3plus
format cannot be played on your computer.
About MP3 CDs
• Be sure to add the file extension "mp3" to the file
name. However, if you add the extension "mp3"
to a file other than an MP3 file, the player will not
be able to recognize the file properly.
• To compress a source in an MP3 file, we
recommend setting the compression parameters to
"44.1 kHz," "128 kbps," and "Constant Bit Rate."
• To record up to the maximum capacity, set the
writing software to "halting of writing."
• To record up to the maximum capacity at one time
on media that has nothing recorded on it, set the
writing software to "Disc at Once."
Precautions
On safety
• Should any solid objects or liquid fall into
the CD player, unplug it and have it checked
by qualified personnel before operating it
any further.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN
3 V (external power input) jack.
On the CD player
• Keep the lens on the CD player clean and
do not touch it. If you do so, the lens may
be damaged and the CD player will not
operate properly.
• Do not put any heavy object on top of the
CD player. The CD player and the CD may
be damaged.
• Do not leave the CD player in a location
near heat sources, or in a place subject
to direct sunlight, excessive dust or sand,
moisture, rain, mechanical shock, unleveled
surface, or in a car with its windows closed.
• If the CD player causes interference to the
radio or television reception, turn off the
CD player or move it away from the radio
or television.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart,
square, star) cannot be played on this CD
player. Attempting to do so may damage
the CD player. Do not use such discs.
On headphones/earphones
Road safety
Do not use headphones/earphones while
driving, cycling, or operating any motorized
vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and
is illegal in some areas. It can also be
potentially dangerous to play your headsets
at high volume while walking, especially at
pedestrian crossings. You should exercise
extreme caution or discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones/earphones at high
volume. Hearing experts advise against
continuous, loud and extended play. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce
volume or discontinue use.
Consideration for others
Keep the volume at a moderate level. This
will allow you to hear outside sounds and to
be considerate to the people around you.
On handling CDs
• To keep the CD clean, handle it by its edge.
Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or tape onto the CD.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or
heat sources such as hot air ducts. Do not
leave the CD in a car parked under direct
sunlight.
