Aerial storage
When the aerial is in the vertical position it can be collapsed and then pushed
partly into the aerial stud for storage (see the right hand illustration above).
For best reception the aerial should be restored to the vertical orientation
and fully extended.

Battery operation
1. Slide the battery cover catch in the direction of the arrow. Open the
battery cover.
2. Fit six LR14 (C size) batteries into the spaces in the compartment.
Take care to ensure all batteries are inserted with the correct polarity
as shown on the outside of the battery compartment. Replace the
battery cover.
3. Reduced power, distortion and a 'stutturing' sound are all signs that
the batteries may need replacing. If the unit is not to be used for a
prolonged period of time, remove the batteries to avoid damage by
battery leakage.
We would recommend for economy that the ZoomBox 3 is used on
the mains whenever possible with battery operation for occasional or
stand-by use only.
IMPORTANT: The batteries should not be exposed to excessive heat
such as sunshine, fire or the like. After use, disposable batteries should
if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre. On no account
should batteries be disposed of by incineration.
Mains operation
1. Place your CD player on a flat surface.
2. Plug the mains lead into the Socket located on the left hand side of
your cd player ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
3. Plug the other end of the mains lead into a wall socket and switch on
the wall socket.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting the
radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the radio must
remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains, the mains plug should be removed from the mains
socket outlet completely.
4. The On Indicator will light when the unit is switched on.

Your CD player will play stereo broadcasts in stereo so long as the received
signal is of adequate strength. However, as a stereo signal becomes weaker
the audio signal will become poorer. It may be preferable to force the radio
to play the station in mono in order to reduce the level of audio noise.

Compact discs
Use only Digital Audio CDs which have the
symbol.
Never write on a CD or attach any sticker to the CD. Always hold the CD
at the edge and store it in its box after use with the label facing up.
To remove dust and dirt, breathe on the CD and wipe it with a soft, lint free
cloth in a straight line from the centre towards the edge.
Cleaning agents may damage the CD.
Do not expose the CD to rain, moisture, sand or to excessive heat. (e.g
from heating equipment or in motor cars parked in the sun).
CD-R/CD-RW discs
Your CD player can playback CD-DA format audio CD-R/CD-RW discs
that have been finalised* upon completion of recording.
Your CD player may fail to playback some CD-R/CD-RW discs due to poor
recording and wide variation in quality of the CD-R/CD-RW disc.
*Finalising enables a CD-R/CD-RW disc to playback on audio players
such as your ZoomBox 3.

WARNING
MP3 / WMA CD Mode
CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT means that the laser's construction makes
it inherently safe so that the legally prescribed maximum permissible
radiation values can never be exceeded.
The ZoomBox 3 is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3
/ WMA files.
Caution: Using any equipment or devices other than those described and
specified in these operating instructions, or tampering with the unit in any
way, can result in dangerous exposure to radiation.
In MP3 / WMA mode the terms “album” and “file” are very important.
“Album” typically corresponds to a folder on a PC, “File” to a PC or a
CD-DA track. The device reads MP3 or WMA files with a maximum
of 255 files per album or folder. An MP3 / WMA CD may not contain
more than a combined total of 999 files and folders. MP3 and WMA files
must be created with an audio sample rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal
for files created from CD audio content). Folders may be nested but to
a maximum of 8 levels. Folder and file names should be less than 30
characters (longer names are possible but reduce the above maximum
limits). ID3 tags for title / artist / album should be less than 30 characters
(longer tags are possible, but are truncated when displayed). Within any
one folder, files or folders written earlier will have higher priority than
those written later. Within any one folder, files have higher priority than
nested folders. The priority of folders when playing is based on the level
in the directory tree. The higher level the higher priority.
When burning CD-R and CD-RW discs with audio files, various problems
may arise which could lead to interference in playback. This can be
caused by faulty software or hardware settings or by the CD being used.
Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD
burner or software manufacturer or look for relevant information, for
example on the internet. When you are making audio CDs, observe
all legal guidelines and ensure that the copyright of third parties is not
infringed.

Cautions
This section describes how to use your radio to access and playback your
audio files via Secure Digital (SD, SDHC) cards and USB memory devices.
In order to minimise the risk of damage to your radio, SD card or USB
memory device, please place the unit so that the device cannot be easily
knocked while it is inserted in the socket.
The ZoomBox 3 has been tested with a range of SD cards up to 2GB and
SDHC cards and USB memory devices up to 32GB. However there are
many different card variants available and not all cards can be guaranteed
to work in the ZoomBox 3. Memory must use the FAT or FAT 32 filing
system in order to operate in the ZoomBox 3.
Important: Your radio is designed to work with USB flash memory devices.
It is not intended to be connected to hard disk drives or any other type
of USB device.
Remove the SD card or USB memory device before carrying the unit or
if not using the SD/USB feature for a prolonged period.
Switch the unit off before removing your SD card or USB memory device.
Audio formats supported for playback are MP3 and WMA. Playback does
not support files encoded using WMA lossless, WMA voice, WMA 10
professional, nor files of any format which have DRM protection.
The SD slot is located at the front of the unit and the USB socket is located
on the right hand side of the radio.
Inserting and removing a card
To insert an SD card into your ZoomBox 3, push the card label side
upwards and gold contacts first into the SD card slot on the front of your
CD player until it clicks.
To remove the card, push the card in slightly and it will pop out allowing
removal.

Selecting SD/USB mode
1. To select the SD/USB mode slide the Function switch to 'SD' or
'USB' position.
Note: Playback control in SD/USB mode is similar to CD-MP3/WMA mode
(see pages 21-25). MP3 and WMA files are played back in the order that
they are written to the SD/USB memory device by your computer except
when random mode is used.
Note: The SD card / USB memory device should not be removed during
playback as damage or corruption of files may occur.
Note: If the unit is in the SD or USB stop mode position for more than 15
minutes it will automatically switch to the standby mode. The operation
indicator and the LCD will go off in such a case. To use the unit again
