Loading and Removing Discs

Note: Discs that are not currently being played may be removed during the operation of other dics. For example, you can remove Disc 2 while Disc 1 is playing. However, doing so while running a program will result in the program being erased.The CDC-3will then continue playing only the disc that was playing at the time the CD drawer was opened.

Play / Pause

To play a disc, press the PLAY / PAUSE button.To pause, press the PLAY / PAUSE button a second time during playback.To return to regular playback, press the PLAY / PAUSE button a third time. The pause symbol (two vertical bars) will light up in the upper righthand corner of the liquid crystal display if the CDC-3is in pause operation.

ALL - When selected, this mode will result in the playback of every disc currently installed in theCDC-3,beginning with whichever disc is currently selected and continuing through all discs installed. If no disc is installed in a particular tray, theCDC-3will skip that particular tray and continue onto the next one. Once all installed discs have played, theCDC-3will stop playing unless the REPEAT function is activated.

ALL INTRO - In this mode, theCDC-3will play a10-secondpreview of each track on every disc installed.

1 DISC - This mode limits playback operation to only the disc currently selected. Once that particular disc is finished, theCDC-3will stop playing. SeeRandom Play Function,Introduction Function, andRepeat Function for further information on how 1 DISC affects those functions.

1 DISC INTRO - In this mode, theCDC-3will play a10-secondpreview of each track on the disc selected.
