*1
ISO9660 Format
The most common international standard for the
logical format of files and folders on a CD-ROM.
There are several specification levels. In Level 1, file
names must be in the 8.3 format (no more than eight
characters in the name, no more than three characters
in the extension “.MP3” or “.JPG”) and in capital
letters. Folder names can be no longer than eight
characters. There can be no more than eight nested
folder levels. Level 2 specifications allow file names
and folder names up to 31 characters long. Each
folder can have up to 8 trees.
For Joliet in the expansion format (file and folder
names can have up to 64 characters) make sure of the
contents of the writing software, etc.
*2 Multi
Session
This is a recording method that enables adding of
data using the Track-At-Once method. Conventional
CDs begin at a CD control area called the Lead-in
and end at an area called Lead-out. A Multi Session
CD is a CD having multiple sessions, with each
segment from Lead-in to Lead-out regarded as a
single session.
CD-Extra: This format records audio (audio CD
data) on the tracks in session 1 and data on the tracks
in session 2.

Notes on discs
• This system can play CD-R/CD-RW discs
edited by the user. However, note that
playback of some discs may not be possible
depending on the recording device used for
recording or the disc condition.
• Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may
not be played back because of scratches, dirt,
recording condition or the driver’s
characteristics.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs that have not been
correctly finalized (processing to allow play
by a normal CD player) cannot be played.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in multisession that have not ended by “closing the
session” are not supported.
• The system may be unable to play MP3/JPEG
format files that do not have the extender
“.MP3,” “.JPG,” or “.JPEG.”
• Attempting to play non-MP3/JPEG format
files that have the extender “.MP3,” “.JPG,”
or “.JPEG” may result in noise or
malfunction. Playback is possible up to 8
levels.
• With formats other than ISO9660 level 1 and
2, folder names or file names may not be
displayed correctly.
• The following discs take a longer time to start
playback:
– a disc recorded with a complicated tree
structure.
– a disc recorded in Multi Session.
– a disc to which data can be added (nonfinalized disc).
• Some CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs or DVDRWs (in video mode) (DVD-RWs created in
video mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO) cannot be played on this system
depending upon the recording quality or
physical condition of the disc, or the
characteristics of the recording device.
Furthermore, the disc will not play if it has not
been correctly finalized. For more
information, see the operating instructions for
the recording device.
• A disc recorded in packet write format cannot
be played.

search
Press RDS on the unit repeatedly so that “INFO PTY”

press x.
Tip
The standby mode for INFO Search will not be
cancelled even if the unit is turned off.
Note on PTY & INFO Search
If TRAFFIC is selected, the unit searches for a station
which regularly broadcasts traffic announcements.
Therefore, a detected station may not be currently
broadcasting traffic announcements. You will,
however, be able to hear the announcements in a while.
PTY & INFO Search do not function under the
following conditions:
– FM stations are not preset.
– The signals of the station broadcasting the desired
PTY are weak.
– FM RDS stations cannot be received.
INFO Search
Clock-time (CT)
The unit can leap to a station which has just
started broadcasting your desired PTY. In INFO
Search, the unit is in standby mode until the
desired PTY begins. As soon as it begins, the
unit “leaps to” another station with the PTY and
returns to the previously tuned station when it
ends. INFO Search makes the function above
possible with the help of INFO which gives the
receivers a cross reference to other stations. You
need to preset every available station in advance
since the unit searches only the preset
stations.(See “Auto Preset.”)
You can automatically set and update the clock
on the hour every hour just by tuning in an RDS
station since RDS stations transmit clock
signals.

Troubleshooting
75GB
In case color irregularity is observed
on a nearby TV screen
Additional Information
Precautions
On operating voltage
If color irregularity is observed…
Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply.
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to 30
minutes.
On safety
If color irregularity is observed
again…
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the power cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is;
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight.
• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
On heat buildup
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not a malfunction.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup in the system.
• If you continuously use this system at a high volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
• To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the
ventilation hole for the cooling fan.
76GB
With the magnetically shielded type of speaker system,
the speakers can be installed near a TV set. However,
color irregularity may still be observed on the TV
screen depending on your TV set type.
Place the speakers farther away from the TV set.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This system is capable of holding a still
video image or on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If you leave a still
video image or on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period of time you risk
permanent damage to your television screen.
Projection televisions are especially susceptible to
this.
On operation
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD
player. Should this occur, the system will not operate
properly. Remove the disc and leave the system
turned on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Aiwa dealer.
Notes on discs
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
• Do not use a disc with a stabilizing ring. This may
cause a malfunction to the system.
• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky
substances on the label side of the disc or that uses a
special ink for the label, there is a chance that the disc
or label may become attached to parts inside this unit.
If this occurs, it may not be possible to remove the
disc, and may also cause this unit to malfunction. Be
sure to check that the label side of the disc is not
sticky before using.
The following types of disc should not be used:
– Rental or used discs with attached seals where the
glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the
seal on the disc is tacky.
– Discs that have labels printed using a special ink
that feels sticky when touched.
• 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.
When using a tape longer than
90 minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use. Be
sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape. Use a
separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning
cassette.
Demagnetising the tape heads
Demagnetise the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours of
use with a separately sold demagnetising cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetising
cassette.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as thinner, benzene or alcohol.
To save a tape permanently
Break off the
cassette tab
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.
Before placing a cassette in the tape
deck
Additional Information
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may
get entangled in parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.

• Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
Glossary
Album
Section of a music piece on a data CD
containing MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image
files.
Auto Pause
An automatical pauses according to the signal
encorded on the disc while playing a VIDEO
CD. If the CD player does not resume play for a
long time, press nN to resume play
manually.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD. A title is
composed of several chapters.
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theatres is more
advanced than Dolby Pro Logic Surround. In
this format, the surround speakers output stereo
sound with an expanded frequency range and a
sub woofer channel for deep bass is
independently provided. This format is also
called “5.1” because the sub woofer channel is
counted as 0.1 channel (since it functions only
when a deep bass effect is needed). All six
channels in this format are recorded separately
to realize superior channel separation.
Furthermore, since all the signals are processed
digitally, less signal degradation occurs.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-band width
output channels from two-channel sources. This
is done using an advanced, high-purity matrix
surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without
adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.
• Dolby Pro Logic II Music
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music
recordings, and provides a wide and deep sound
space.
DTS
Digital audio compression technology that the
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This
technology conforms to 5.1-channel surround.
The rear channel is stereo and there is discrete
sub woofer channel in this format. DTS provides
the same 5.1 discrete channels of high quality
digital audio. The good channel separation is
realized because the all channel data is recorded
discrete and processed in digital.
DVD
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of moving
pictures even though its diameter is the same as
a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD, at 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), is 7 times
that of a CD. Furthermore, the data capacity of a
dual-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a
single-layer and double-sided DVD 9.4 GB, and
a dual-layer and double-sided DVD 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, a
worldwide standards of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 of its original size. The DVD also
uses the variable rate coding technology that
changes the data to be allocated according to the
status of the picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby Digital as
well as in PCM, allowing you to enjoy more
realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such
as the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided with the DVD.
Additional Information
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Pro Logic Surround produces four
channels from two-channel sound. Compared
with the former Dolby Surround system, Dolby
Pro Logic Surround reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds
more precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby
Pro Logic Surround, you should have one pair of
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programes encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced soundfield
directionality that approaches the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound.
File
Section of a picture on a data CD containing
JPEG image files.

81GB
Film based software, Video based
software
DVDs can be classified as Film based or Video
based software. Film based DVDs contain the
same images (24 frames per second) that are
shown at movie theatres. Video based DVDs,
such as television dramas or sit-coms, displays
images at 30 frames (or 60 fields) per second.
ID3 TAG
ID3 TAG determines the data format for the text
to be added to an MP3 file, mainly used to
indicate a track title or an artist’s name, etc.
Index (CD) / Video Index (VIDEO CD)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO CD
or a CD. Depending on the disc, no indexes may
be recorded.
Menu Playback
Playback using the menu screens recorded on
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions. You can enjoy
simple interactive software using the menu
playback function.
Multi-angle function
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video
camera, for a scene are recorded on some DVDs.
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a
picture are recorded on some DVDs.
Parental Control
A function of the DVD to limit playback of the
disc by the age of the users according to the
limitation level in each country/region. The
limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, playback is completely prohibited,
violent scenes are skipped or replaced with other
scenes, etc.
82GB
Playback Control (PBC)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0)
to control playback. By using menu screens
recorded on VIDEO CDs with PBC functions,
you can enjoy playing simple interactive
programs, programs with search functions, and
so on.
This system conforms to Ver. 1.1 and Ver. 2.0 of
VIDEO CD standards. You can enjoy two kinds
of playback depending on the disc type.
VIDEO CDs without PBC functions
(Ver. 1.1 discs)
Enjoy video playback (moving pictures) as well
as music.
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions
(Ver. 2.0 discs)
Play interactive software using menu screens
displayed on the TV screen (PBC Playback), in
addition to the video playback functions of Ver.
1.1 discs. Moreover, you can play highresolution still pictures, if they are included on
the disc.
Progressive format
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately
shows every other line of an image (field) to
create one frame, the Progressive format shows
the entire image at once as a single frame. This
means that while the Interlace format can show
30 frames (60 fields) in one second, the
Progressive format can show 60 frames in one
second. The overall picture quality increases and
still images, text, and horizontal lines appear
sharper. This player is compatible with 525
progressive format.
Region Code
This system is used to protect copyrights. A
region number is allocated on each DVD system
or DVD disc according to the sales region. Each
region code is shown on the system as well as on
the disc packaging. The system can play the
discs that match its region code. The system can
also play discs with the “ ALL ” mark. Even when
the region code is not shown on the DVD, the
region limit may still be activated.
Scene
VIDEO CD
On a VIDEO CD with PBC functions (page 20),
the menu screens, moving pictures, and still
pictures are divided into sections called
“scenes.” Each scene is assigned a scene number
enabling you to locate the scene you want.
A compact disc that contains moving pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of
the worldwide standards for digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/140 of its original size. Consequently, a
12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes
of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio data.
Sounds outside the range of human hearing are
compressed while the sounds we can hear are
not compressed. VIDEO CDs can hold 6 times
the audio information of conventional audio
CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only moving
pictures and sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution
still pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
Title
The longest sections of a picture or a music
piece on a DVD; a movie, etc., for a picture
piece on video software; or an album, etc., for a
music piece on audio software. Each title is
assigned a title number enabling you to locate
the title you want.
Track
Sections of a picture or a music piece on a CD,
VIDEO CD or MP3. Each track is assigned a
track number enabling you to locate the track
you want.
