Basic Operations
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

guaranteed.

Notes on MP3 discs
• When the disc is inserted, the player reads all the files on that disc.
During this time, “READING” is displayed. 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 play.
We recommend that you do not save unnecessary folders or files
other than MP3 ones in the disc to be used for MP3 listening.
• A folder that does not include an MP3 file is skipped.
• Maximum number of files: 255
Maximum number of folders: 150 (including the root folder)
Maximum number of folders and files in total: 300
Maximum directory levels: 8
• Folder names and file names can be displayed with up to
16 characters including quotation marks.
• The characters A - Z, 0 - 9, and _ can be displayed on this player.
Other characters are displayed as “_”.
• This player conforms to Version 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 of the
ID3 tag format. When the file has the ID3 tag information, “song
title”, “artist name” and “album name” can be displayed and
“ID3” appears in the display. If the file does not have the ID3 tag
information, “No title” appears instead of song title, “No album”
appears instead of album name and “No artist” appears instead of
artist name. The ID3 tag information can be displayed with up to 15
characters.
• When naming, be sure to add the file extension “mp3” to the file
name.
• If you put the extension “mp3” to a file other than an MP3 file, the
player cannot recognize the file properly and will generate random
noise that could damage your speakers.
• The file name does not correspond to the ID3 tag.

harmful to the eyes, do not attempt to disassemble the
casing. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the player,
unplug the player, and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.

mechanical shock or in a car subject to the direct rays
of the sun.
• Do not place the player on an inclined or unstable
place.
• Do not place anything within 10 mm of the side of the
cabinet. The ventilation holes must be unobstructed for
the player 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 player to prevent
possible damage from the magnet.
• 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 lens inside the CD player section.
Should this occur, the player will not operate properly.
In this case, remove the CD and wait about an hour for
the moisture to evaporate.
