zWhen playing OGG files, the elapsed playing time in the display window may not be correct.

zMake sure that a OGG CD-R/CD-RWis burned that is formatted as a data disc and NOT as an audio disc.

Important

zWhen naming a MP3/WMA/OGG file, add the corresponding file name extension (.mp3,

.wma or .ogg).

zThis unit plays back files with the file name extension (.mp3, .wma or .ogg) as a MP3/ WMA/OGG file. To prevent noise and malfunctions, do not use these extensions for files other than MP3/WMA/OGG files.

zThis unit allows playback of MP3/WMA/OGG files on CD-ROM,CD-RandCD-RWdiscs. Disc recordings compatible with level 1 and level 2 of ISO9660 and with the Romeo and Joliet file system with sector format in Mode 1 or Mode

2 Form 1 can be played back. Other formats cannot be played reliably.

zIt is possible to play back multi-sessioncompatible recorded discs.

zMP3/WMA/OGG files are not compatible with packet write data transfer.

zThe maximum number of characters which can be displayed for a file name, including the extension (.mp3, .wma or .ogg), is 64, from the first character.

zWhen playing discs with MP3/WMA/OGG files and audio data (CD-DA)such asCD-EXTRAandMIXED-MODECDs, both

types can be played only by switching mode between MP3/WMA/OGG and CD-DA.

zThe folder selection sequence for playback and other operations becomes the writing sequence used by the writing software. For this reason, the expected sequence at the time of playback may not coincide with the actual playback sequence. However, there also is some writing software which permits setting of the playback order.

zSome audio CDs contain tracks that merge into one another without a pause. When these discs are converted to MP3/WMA/OGG files and burned to a CD-R/CD-RW/CD-ROM,the files will be played back on this player with a short pause between each one, regardless of the length of the pause between tracks on the original audio CD.
