of the adapter.
– Strong vibrations
– Strong magnetic fields
– Sand
Protect the adapter from sand in sandy locations such as the beach.
Sand may cause the adapter to malfunction or damage it
irreparably.
On use
• Do not drop the adapter or subject it to strong physical shocks.
• Keep the adapter away from TV sets, AM radio receivers, radio
tuners and other sources of radio interference.
• Prevent the connector of the adapter (or the cord) from contacting
any metal objects which may cause a short circuit.

On cleaning
• Clean the adapter with a soft dry cloth or tissue paper. If the adapter
is badly soiled, moisten a soft cloth with a mild detergent solution,
wring it out well, and use it to wipe the adapter. Wipe off any
remaining moisture with a soft, dry cloth.
• Do not use any type of solvent, such as alcohol, thinner, or benzine.
Use of such solvents may cause deformation of the adapter case or
damage to the finish.
• When using a chemical cleaning cloth, follow the instructions
included with the cloth.
• Use of volatile sprays, such as insect spray, or leaving the adapter on
a rubber or vinyl product may cause deformation of the adapter case,
or the coating to peal off.
On moisture condensation
If the adapter is brought directly from a cold to a warm location,
moisture may condense inside the adapter. Use of the adapter in such a
condition may cause a fire or malfunction within the adapter. When
moisture has condensed, allow the adapter to sit at least an hour
before using it.
Troubleshooting
Playback
• Buttons on the Audio Adapter do not work.
Slide the HOLD switch on the Audio Adapter to OFF.
Unless you turn off your CLIÉ handheld while Audio Player for
Adapter is running, pressing a button on the Audio Adapter
does not start the CLIÉ handheld.
Charge the built-in battery in the CLIÉ handheld sufficiently.
• I hear some skips and noise during playback.
Check the MP3 format. For the MP3 formats available for
playback, see “What you can do with the Audio Player” in the
online manual of Audio Player for Adapter.
• I cannot start up Audio Player for Adapter or cannot play back audio
sound files.
Disconnect and connect the connector several times.
Charge the built-in battery in the CLIÉ handheld sufficiently.
• I cannot hear the sound of movie files by gMovie.
Charge the built-in battery in the CLIÉ handheld sufficiently.
24
Connection with your computer
• Connection abruptly drops.
Connect the AC power adapter to the cradle.
Check the cradle or USB cable and your computer for
appropriate connection.
Attach the cradle or USB cable firmly to your CLIÉ handheld.
• I cannot transfer as many music pieces as expected. (Available
recording time is not long enough.)
The Memory Stick media contains data other than audio files.
This decreases the memory capacity that you can use for music
transferring. Copy the data in the Memory Stick media to your
computer, for example, to increase the capacity.
• I see the drive but not its contents on my computer after I connect my
CLIÉ handheld to my computer.
Insert the Memory Stick media into your CLIÉ handheld first,
and then connect it to your computer.
• I don’t see the removable media on my computer during Transfer
mode.
Exit the Transfer mode after making sure that the power of your
CLIÉ handheld is ON, and then retry music transferring.
• The operation of my CLIÉ handheld is unstable while it is connected
to my computer.
If the cradle or the connection USB cable is connected to your
computer via a USB hub or USB extension cable, the operation is
not guaranteed. Connect the cradle or the connection USB cable
directly to your computer.
• A warning window for device removal appears on the desktop.
Click [OK] and proceed.
Do not tap “Stop” or remove your CLIÉ handheld from the
cradle during Transfer mode.
25
Others
• I hear no operation sounds from my CLIÉ handheld.
You hear no operation sounds (clicking sounds) from your CLIÉ
handheld while Audio Player for Adapter or gMovie is running.
However, you do hear warning and error sounds from your
CLIÉ handheld.
• I cannot insert the Memory Stick media.
Insert it in an appropriate direction.
• HotSync screen appears on your CLIÉ handheld when pressing the
buttons of Audio Adapter.
Charge the built-in battery in the CLIÉ handheld.
• Error display appears while using Audio Player for Adapter or
gMovie application software.
When the battery power is low, these software applications may
not run in order to protect the contents in the memory. Fully
recharge the battery on your CLIÉ handheld and start it up
again.
• The remaining power indication in the screen of Audio Player for
Adapter is different from the one in the home screen (main menu) on
your CLIÉ handheld.
This is not malfunction.
• I cannot use the Memory Stick media that I used with other devices
before.
If the Memory Stick media is formatted with your computer,
copy necessary data into your computer. Then, follow the
instructions in the operation instructions of your CLIÉ handheld
to format the media.
• I cannot use the Audio Adapter for a while after I insert the Memory
Stick media.
If the Memory Stick with many music pieces recorded is inserted,
no operations may be allowed. This is not a malfunction. Wait
until the name of the music piece appears on the Audio Player
window or the Memory Stick indicator turns off.
