Notes on MP3 discs
Audio CD
 When a disc is loaded, the unit reads all the files on that
disc. During this time, “READ” is flashing. If there are many
folders or non-MP3 files on the disc, it may take a long
time for play to begin or for the next MP3 file to start to
play.
 We recommend that non-MP3 files or unnecessary folders
are excluded when creating MP3 discs.
 During playback, audio files other than MP3 files are
skipped even if those files are included in a folder.
 This system can only play MP3 files that have a file
extension of “.mp3”.
Note that even if the file name has the correct file
extension but the actual file was created in a different
audio format, this unit may produce noise or may
malfunction.
 MP3 PRO format is not supported.
 This unit cannot play audio files on a disc in the following
cases:
 When the total number of audio files exceeds 413.
 When the total number of folders on a single disc
exceeds 99 (including the “ROOT” folder).
 When the directory level (folder depths) exceeds 9
(including the “ROOT” folder).

 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.
Music discs encoded with copyright
protection technologies
 This product is designed to playback 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.

Do not leave the unit in a location near heat
sources, in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust or mechanical shock, or in a car
subject to the direct rays of the sun.
Do not place the unit near the appliances that
generate heat, such as lighting fixtures or heaters.
The heat from those appliances may deform the
enclosure and cause the system to malfunction.
Do not place the unit on an inclined or unstable
surface.
Do not place anything within 10 mm of the rear of
the cabinet. The ventilation openings must be
unobstructed for the unit to operate properly and
prolong the life of its components.
Since a strong magnet is used for the speakers,
keep personal credit cards using magnetic coding
or spring-wound watches away from the unit to
prevent possible damage from the magnet.
On operation
 If the unit 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 section. Should this occur, the unit will not
operate properly. In this case, remove the CD and
wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
On handling the unit
 Do not leave the CD compartment open to avoid
dust and debris contamination.
 When carrying the unit, hold it by the handle  to
prevent it from dropping.
A small humming noise is heard from the
radio.
 This is not a malfunction. You may hear a small
humming noise from the radio depending on the
status of the power supply.
 Clean the cabinet, panel and controls using 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.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your unit, consult your nearest Sony dealer.
