Chapter 4

Playing Music

You can transfer audio files from your computer and play them on the viewer. You can create playlists using the Epson

Link2 software on your computer, or using the viewer itself.

This chapter describes how to transfer and play music, and how to manage your audio files on the viewer.

WMA and WAV files are automatically converted to M4A when they are transferred. You can specify conversion

settings if necessary; see “Setting Backup and Conversion

Preferences” on page 45 for instructions.

1

Connect the AC adapter to the viewer and plug it in.

2

Turn on the viewer and your computer.

3

Use the included USB cable to connect the viewer to your computer.

Copying Music From Your Computer

First, make sure you have installed the Epson Link2 software, following the instructions in your

P-3000/P-5000

Basics

guide.

If you want to copy files from a music CD, you first need to convert the file format to MP3 or M4A using CD copying software on your computer. You can also use this software to change the song and artist names displayed on the playlist if necessary.
