Notes on MP3/WMA Recordings
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the ".mp3" file extension "MP3 files".
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than ".mp3".
About WMA(Window Media Audio)
A WMA file is a Microsoft audio compression
WMA(Windows Media Audio) offers double the audio
compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this DVD/CD
receiver is limited as follows:
1. Sampling Frequency / only at 44.1kHz (MP3),
32 - 44.1kHz (WMA)
2. Bit rate / within 32 - 320kbps (MP3),
32 - 128kbps (WMA)
3. CD-R physical format should be "ISO 9660"
4. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
"Direct-CD" etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files. We recommend that you use "Easy-
CD Creator", which is the default in most software.
5. A single session disc requires MP3/WMA files in the
first track. If there is no MP3/WMA file in the 1st
track, it cannot playback MP3/WMA files. If you wish
to playback MP3/WMA files, format all the data in
the disc or use a new one.
6. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate ".mp3" or ".wma" extension
e.g. "********.MP3" or "********.WMA".
7. Do not use special letters such as "/ : * ? " < > " etc.
8. Total number of files on the disc should be less than
This DVD/CD receiver requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 or WMA files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/WMA files and
music from the Internet. Our company has no right
to grant such permission. Permission should
always be sought from the copyright owner.
