Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the player and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the player for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the player
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface
such as a rug that might block the
ventilation holes.
• Do not place the player in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
Do not turn up the volume while listening to
a section with very low level inputs or no
audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be
damaged when a peak level section is played.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a
soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild
detergent solution. Do not use any type of
abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzine.
On cleaning discs
Do not use a commercially available cleaning
disc. It may cause a malfunction.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This player is capable of holding a
still video image or on-screen display image
on your television screen indefinitely. If
you leave the 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. Plasma
display panel televisions and projection
televisions are susceptible to this.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a cold
to a warm location, or is placed in a very
damp room, moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the player. Should this occur,
the player may not operate properly. In this
case, remove the disc and leave the player
turned on for about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the player, take out any
discs. If you don’t, the disc may be
damaged.

Notes
• The player will play any data with the extension
“.MP3”, “.JPG” or “.JPEG” even if they are not in
MP3 or JPEG format. Playing these data may
generate a loud noise which could damage your
speaker system.
• The player does not conform to audio in MP3PRO
format.
Playback order of MP3 audio
tracks or JPEG image files
The playback order of albums, MP3 audio
tracks, or JPEG image files recorded on a
DATA CD is as follows:
◆Structure of disc contents
Tree 1
Tree 2
Tree 3
Tree 4
Tree 5
ROOT
Note on the multi-session disc
If MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files are
recorded in the first session, the player will
also play MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image
files in other sessions. If audio tracks and
images in Music CD format or Video CD
format are recorded in the first session, only
the first session will be played back.
Note
The player may not be able to play some DATA
CDs created in the Packet Write format. In this case,
you cannot view the JPEG images recorded.
MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image
files that the player can play
The player can play the MP3 audio tracks or

Playing DATA CDs with
MP3 Audio Tracks and
JPEG Image Files
MP3 audio tracks and JPEG image files
recorded on DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CD-Rs/
CD-RWs) can be played on this player.
z Hints
• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front
of the track/file names when you store the tracks
(or files) in a disc, the tracks and files will be
played in that order.
• Since a disc with many trees takes longer to start
playback, it is recommended that you create
albums with no more than two trees.
• Depending on the software you use to create the
DATA CD, the playback order may differ from
the above illustration.
• The playback order above may not be applicable
if there are more than 200 albums and 300 tracks/
files in each album.
• The player can recognize up to 200 albums (the
player will count just albums, including albums
that do not contain MP3 audio tracks and JPEG
image files). The player will not play any albums
beyond the 200 album.
• The player may take longer time to playback,
when progressing to the following album or jump
to other album.
• Some type of JPEG files cannot be played.

discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theatre surround
sound systems. Good channel separation is
realized because all of the channel data are
recorded discretely and little deterioration is
realized because all channel data processing
is digital.

Dolby Laboratories developed for surround
sound. When the input signal contains a
surround component, the Pro Logic process
outputs the front, centre and rear signals. The
rear channel is monaural.
DTS (page 22, 74)
Digital audio compression technology that
Digital Theater Systems, Inc. developed. This
technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo
and there is a discrete subwoofer channel in
this format. DTS provides the same discrete
channels of high quality digital audio.
Good channel separation is realized because
all of the channel data is recorded discretely
and little deterioration is realized because all
channel data processing is digital.

DVD VIDEO (page 6)
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 is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), which is 7
times that of a CD. The data capacity of a
double-layer and single-sided DVD is 8.5
GB, a single-layer and double-sided DVD is
9.4 GB, and double-layer and double-sided
DVD is 17GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, one
of the worldwide standards of digital
compression technology. The picture data is
compressed to about 1/40 (average) of its
original size. The DVD also uses a variable
rate coding technology that changes the data
to be allocated according to the status of the
picture. Audio information is recorded in a
multi-channel format, such as Dolby Digital,
allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided with
the DVD.
DVD-RW (page 6)
DVD+RW (page 6)
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
File (page 56, 59)
A JPEG image recorded on a DATA CD
(“File” is an exclusive definition for this
player.) A single file consist of a single
image.
Film based software, Video based
software (page 71)
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 theaters.
Video based DVDs, such as television dramas
or sit-coms, displays images at 30 frames/60
fields (25 frames/50 fields) per second.
Video Index (VIDEO CD) (page 9)
A number that divides a track into sections to
easily locate the point you want on a VIDEO
CD. Depending on the disc, no index may be
recorded.
MPEG audio (page 22, 74)
International standard coding system used to
compress audio digital signals authorized by
ISO/IEC. MPEG 1 conforms to up to 2channel stereo. MPEG 2, used on DVDs,
conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Normal (Interlace) format (page 71)
Normal (Interlace) format shows every other
line of an image as a single “field” and is the
standard method for displaying images on
television. The even number field shows the
even numbered lines of an image, and the odd
numbered field shows the odd numbered lines
of an image.
Progressive format (page 71)
Compared to the Normal (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 Normal (Interlace) format can show 25 or
30 frames (50-60 fields) in one second, the
Progressive format can show 50-60 frames in
one second. The overall picture quality
increases and still images, text, and horizontal
lines appear sharper. This player is
compatible with the 525 or 625 progressive
format.

Additional Information
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable
disc that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO.
The DVD-RW has two different modes: VR
mode and Video mode. DVD-RWs created in
Video mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to be
programmed or edited.

Progressive JPEG (page 61)
Progressive JPEGs are used mostly on the
internet. They are different from other JPEGs
in that they “fade in” gradually instead of
being drawn from top to bottom when
displayed on a browser. This lets you view the
image while it is being downloaded.
Scene (page 9)
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback
control) functions, the menu screens, moving
pictures and still pictures are divided into
sections called “scenes.”
Title (page 9)
The longest section of a picture or music
feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video
software, or the entire album in audio
software.
Track (page 9)
Sections of a picture or a music feature on a
VIDEO CD, CD or DATA CD. (the length of
a song). (“Track” in DATA CD is an
exclusive definition for this player).
