When replacing the fuse, be sure to use one with an identical amperage rating. Using a fuse with a higher amperage rating may cause serious damage to the unit.

Do NOT attempt to disassemble the unit. Laser beams from the optical pickup are dangerous to the eyes.

Make sure that pins or other foreign objects do not get inside the unit; they may cause malfunctions, or create safety hazards such as electrical shock or laser beam exposure.

When your vehicle has been parked in direct sunlight resulting in a considerable rise in the temperature inside, allow the unit to cool off before operating it.

Keep the volume at a level at which you can hear outside warning sounds (horns, sirens, etc.).

Before playing an MP3

The unit can play back MP3* files recorded on CD-ROMorCD-RorCD-RW.MP3 files are played in numerical then alphabetical order. The unit starts playback from the files with a digit at the beginning of the filename.

*An MP3 file (that has the “.mp3” extension) stores audio data compressed using MPEG1, the audio layer-3file-codingscheme.

Within this section, we refer to what are called “MP3 file” and “folder” in PC terminology as “track” and “album,” respectively.

Notes on MP3

MP3 tracks must be recorded on a disc in a format compliant with ISO 9660. Note, however, that the unit may not play such tracks in the order they were recorded.

The maximum number of playable tracks is 512 if the disc was recorded in compliance with the ISO 9660 level -1standard (all names of albums and tracks must be within 12 characters).

The maximum number of playable tracks is 512 if the disc was recorded in compliance with the ISO 9660 level -2standard (all names of albums and tracks must be within 31 characters).

The maximum allowable depth of nested albums is 8, including the root album (directory).

The unit can play only tracks having a file extension “.mp3.”

If a disc contains audio tracks plus MP3 tracks, the unit only plays the audio tracks.

With multisession discs, the unit can play up to 5 sessions. You cannot play an MP3 file having the session that is not closed.

The unit may not play tracks recorded with a packet-writingutility.

When playing a track converted with a bit rate of 8 kbps or VBR (variable bit rate), Intro playback may not work properly.

A non-MP3track that has the “.mp3” file extension is not played.
