CD-R MP3/WMA discs
When playing CD-R/MP3 or WMA discs, please
follow all the recommendations for CD-R above,
plus the comments below:
Your MP3 or WMA files should be ISO 9660 or
JOLIET format.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 or WMA files are
compatible with Microsoft's DOS and Windows,
and with Apple's Mac. These two formats are the
most widely used.
When naming your MP3 or WMA files do not
exceed 8 characters, and place ".mp3, .wma"
as the file extension.
General name format of: Title.mp3. or Title.wma.
When composing your title, make sure that you
use 8 characters or less, have no spaces in the
name, and avoid the use of special characters
including: (.,/,\,=,+).
Use a decompression transfer rate of at least
128Kbps when recording MP3 files.
• Up to 8 music folders can be displayed at a time.
If you have more than 8 folders on a disc, press
the † button to display them.

Use a decompression transfer rate of at least

Sound quality with WMA files basically depends
on the rate of compression/decompression you
choose. Getting audio CD quality sound requires
an analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion
to WMA format, of at least 64Kbps and up to
192Kbps. Conversely, files with decompression
rates below 64Kbps or over 192Kbps will not be
played properly.
Do not try recording copyright protected MP3
files.

Certain "securized" files are encrypted and code
protected to prevent illegal copying. These files
are of the following types: Windows MediaTM
(registered trade mark of Microsoft Inc) and
SDMITM (registered trade mark of The SDMI
Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
Important :
The above recommendations cannot be taken as
a guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality.
You should note that certain technologies and
methods for MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent
optimal playback of these files on your DVD
player (degraded sound quality and in some
cases, inability of the player to read the files).

an analog/digital sampling rate, that is conversion

192Kbps or more, only rarely give better sound

Before contacting the Samsung after-sales service, perform the following simple checks.
If you are unable to solve the problem after reading the above instructions, note:
• The model and serial number on the rear of your DVD-VCR
• The warranty information
• A clear description of the problem

Timer recording was unsuccessful
◆ Was the STANDBY/ON button pressed to activate the timer?
◆ Re-check the recording start/stop time settings.
◆ If there was a power failure or interruption during timer

provided with the head cleaning cassette. Incorrect head cleaning can
permanently damage the video heads.
If when tuning in your TV to the
DVD-VCR TV does not find the Screen

interference, it may be due to the DVD-VCR
output channel clashing with the normal
TV transmissions in your area.
To prevent this you will need to change the
DVD-VCR output channel in the following way
1. Remove the aerial input plug the socket marked (aerial symbol) on the
rear of the DVD-VCR.
2. Carry out the instructions “Tuning Your Television for the DVD-VCR” (see
page 17).
3. Carry out the instructions “Setting the DVD-VCR output Channel” (see
page 24), move the channel number several channels down from the
original setting.(example: from 60 to 69).
4. Replace the aerial plug into the socket marked (aerial symbol) on the rear
of the DVD-VCR.
5. Re-tune your TV to the DVD-VCR again by following instructions “Tuning
Your Television for the DVD-VCR” (see page 17).
6. If the problem still exists repeat steps 1 to 5 moving several more
channels away from the original setting.
