    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: 511
    Maximum number of folders: 256 (including the root folder)
    Maximum number of folders and files in total: 512 Maximum directory levels: 8

Precautions

Discs that this unit CAN play

  • Audio CD
  • CD-R/CD-RW (CD-DA*/MP3 files)

Discs that this unit CANNOT play

  • CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in music CD format or MP3 format conforming to ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2 or Joliet
  • CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality, CD-R/CD-RW that has scratches or are dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW recorded with an incompatible recording device
  • CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly

Notes on discs

  • Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the CD from the center out. If there is a scratch, dirt or fingerprints on the CD, it may cause tracking error.
  • Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.
  • Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight as there can be a considerable rise in temperature inside the car.
  • Do not stick paper or sticker on the CD, nor scratch the surface of the CD.
  • After playing, store the CD in its case.

On safety

  • As the laser beam used in the CD player section is 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 unit, unplug the unit, and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.
  • Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square, star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to do so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs.

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.
  • If the unit has not been used for a long time, set it in the playback mode to warm it up for a few minutes before inserting a cassette.

Notes on cassettes

  • Break off the cassette tab from side A or B to prevent accidental recording. If you want to reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken tab with adhesive tape.
  • The use of a cassette with more than 90 minutes of play time is not recommended except for long, continuous recording or playback.

Cleaning the cabinet

  • Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with 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.
