About MP3/WMA/AAC

CAUTION

Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/ WMA/AAC data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it, whether for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright holder is strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by international treaty.

What is MP3?

MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1Audio Layer 3”, is a compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International Standardization Organization and MPEG which is a joint activity institution of the IEC.

MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is capable of compressing audio data at extremely high ratios, reducing the size of music files to as much as one-tenththeir original size. This is achieved while still maintaining near CD quality. The MP3 format realizes such high compression ratios by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the human ear or masked by other sounds.

What is AAC?

AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding”, and is a basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.

What is WMA?

WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio”, is compressed audio data.

WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality sound with small file sizes.

17-EN

Method for creating MP3/WMA/AAC files

Audio data is compressed using software with MP3/WMA/AAC codecs. For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to the user’s manual for that software.

MP3/WMA/AAC files that can be played back by this device have the following file extensions:

MP3: “mp3”

WMA: “wma” (ver. 2, 7 and 8 are supported) AAC: “m4a”, “aac”

There are many different versions of the AAC format. Confirm that the software being used conforms to the acceptable formats listed above. It’s possible that the format may be unplayable even though the extension is valid. Playback of AAC files encoded by iTunes version 4.8 or earlier is supported.

Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates

This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling rates.

ID3 tags/WMA tags

This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.

If tag data is in an MP3/WMA/AAC file, this device can display the title (track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/ WMA tag data.

This device can only display single-bytealphanumeric characters (up to 30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags) and the underscore. Fornon-supportedcharacters, the display is blank.

The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending on the contents.

Producing MP3/WMA/AAC discs

MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then written to a CD-RorCD-RW(DVD-R/DVD-RW)usingCD-Rwriting software. A disc can hold up to 4,096 files/256 folders (including Root Folders). Playback may not be performed if a disc exceeds the limitations described above.

Media supported

The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs,CD-Rs,CD-RWs,DVD-RandDVD-RW.

Corresponding File Systems

This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2.

Under the ISO9660 standard, there are some restrictions to remember.

The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the root directory). The number of characters for a folder/file name is limited.

Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z(all caps), numbers0-9,and ‘_’ (underscore).

This device also can play back discs in Joliet, Romeo, etc., and other standards that conform to ISO9660. However, sometimes the file names, folder names, etc., are not displayed correctly.

Formats supported

This device supports CD-ROMXA, Mixed Mode CD, Enhanced CD(CD-Extra)andMulti-Session.

This device cannot correctly play back discs recorded with Track At Once or packet writing.

Order of files

Files are played back in the order that the writing software writes them to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not be what is expected. Verify the writing order in the software’s documentation. The playback order of the folders and files is as follows.

Terminology

Bit rate

This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the files.

Sampling rate

This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled (recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the volume of data.

Encoding

Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into the specified audio compression format.

Tag

Song information such as track title, artist names, album names, etc., written into MP3/WMA/AAC files.

Root folder

The root folder (or root directory) is found at the top of the file system. The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created automatically for all burned discs.
