Additional Information
Precautions
• If your car has been parked in direct sunlight,
allow the unit to cool off before operating it.
• Power aerial will extend automatically while the
unit is operating.
Moisture condensation
On a rainy day or in a very damp area, moisture
condensation may occur inside the lenses and
display of the unit. Should this occur, the unit will
not operate properly. In such a case, remove the disc
and wait for about an hour until the moisture has
evaporated.
To maintain high sound quality
Be careful not to splash juice or other soft drinks
onto the unit or discs.
Notes on discs
• To keep a disc clean, do not touch its surface.
Handle the disc by its edge.
• Keep your discs in their cases or disc magazines
when not in use.
• Do not subject discs to heat/high temperature.
Avoid leaving them in a parked car or on a
dashboard/rear tray.
• Do not attach labels, or use discs with sticky ink/
residue. Such discs may stop spinning when used,
causing a malfunction, or may ruin the disc.
• Before playing, clean the discs
with a commercially available
cleaning cloth. Wipe each disc
from the centre out. Do not use
solvents such as benzine,
thinner, commercially available
cleaners, or antistatic spray
intended for analogue discs.
Notes on CD-R/CD-RW discs
• Some CD-Rs/CD-RWs (depending on the
equipment used for its recording or the condition
of the disc) may not play on this unit.
• You cannot play a CD-R/a CD-RW that is not
finalized.
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.
About MP3/WMA files
• Do not use any discs with labels or stickers
attached.
The following malfunctions may result from using
such discs:
– Inability to eject a disc (due to a label or sticker
peeling off and jamming the eject mechanism).
– Inability to read audio data correctly (e.g.,
playback skipping, or no playback) due to heat
shrinking of a sticker or label causing a disc to
warp.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart,
square, star) cannot be played on this unit.
Attempting to do so may damage the unit. Do not
use such discs.
• You cannot play 8 cm CDs.
MP3, which stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3, is a
music file compression format standard. It
compresses audio CD data to approximately 1/10 of
its original size.
WMA, which stands for Windows Media Audio, is
another music file compression format standard. It
compresses audio CD data to approximately 1/22*
of its original size.
* only for 64 kbps
• The unit is compatible with the ISO 9660 level 1/
level 2 format, Joliet/Romeo in the expansion
format, and Multi Session.
• The maximum number of:
– folders (albums): 150 (including root and empty
folders).
– MP3/WMA files (tracks) and folders contained
in a disc: 300 (if a folder/file names contain
many characters, this number may become less
than 300).
– displayable characters for a folder/file name is
32 (Joliet), or 64 (Romeo).

ATRAC CD
ATRAC CD is recorded audio CD data which is
compressed to ATRAC3 or ATRAC3plus format
using authorized software, such as SonicStage 2.0 or
later, or SonicStage Simple Burner.
• The maximum number of:
– folders (groups): 255
– files (tracks): 999
• The characters for a folder/file name and text
information written by SonicStage is displayed.
For details on ATRAC CD, see the SonicStage or

Note
Be sure to create the ATRAC CD using authorized
software, such as SonicStage 2.0 or later, or
SonicStage Simple Burner 1.0 or 1.1.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your unit that are not covered in this manual, consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes
• When naming an MP3/WMA file, be sure to add the
file expansion “.mp3” / “.wma” to the file name.
• During playback of a VBR (variable bit rate) MP3/
WMA file or fast-forward/reverse, elapsed playing
time may not display accurately.
• When the disc is recorded in Multi Session, only the
first track of the first session format is recognized
and played (any other format is skipped). The
priority of the format is CD-DA, ATRAC CD and
MP3/WMA.
– When the first track is a CD-DA, only CD-DA of the
first session is played.
– When the first track is not a CD-DA, an ATRAC CD
or MP3/WMA session is played. If the disc has no
data in any of these formats, “NO MUSIC” is
displayed.
Maintenance
Replacing the lithium battery of the
card remote commander
Under normal conditions, the battery will last
approximately 1 year. (The service life may be
shorter, depending on the conditions of use.)
When the battery becomes weak, the range of the
card remote commander becomes shorter. Replace
the battery with a new CR2025 lithium battery. Use
of any other battery may present a risk of fire or
explosion.
+ side up
Notes on MP3
• Be sure to finalize the disc before using on the unit.
• If you play a high-bit-rate MP3, such as 320 kbps,
sound may be intermittent.
Notes on WMA
• Files made with lossless compression are not
playable.
• Files protected by copyright are not playable.
About ATRAC CD
ATRAC3plus format
