Difference between ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3 and
Groups and folders
The ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3 format has a very simple structure. It consists of "files" and
"groups." A "file" is equivalent to a "track" of an audio CD. A "group" is a bundle of files and is
equivalent to an "album." A "group" has no directory-type structure (a new group cannot be
made within an existing group). This CD player is designed to recognize an MP3 file folder as a
"group" so that it can play CD-Rs/RWs recorded in both the ATRAC3plus/ATRAC3 format and
those recorded in the MP3 format with the same operation.
