MP3 is a format for storing digital audio. An audio CD-quality song can be
compressed into the MP3 format with very little loss of quality, while taking up
much less space. Insert a MP3 Disc into the disc slot, label side up. Playback begins
in MP3 mode when a disc is inserted correctly. The unit plays the songs in the
order they were burned on to the disc. The menu for playing audio MP3 music files
is the same as previously described for CD discs.
Media and File Requirements
This player allows you to play back MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R/RWs,
DVD+R/RWs, and DVD-R/RWs. For CD-RW discs, please make sure it is formatted
using the full method and not the quick method to prevent illegal disc operation.
For the greatest file capacity, Dual Layer DVD’s can be used when burning music
to a disc.

The file naming formats listed below are compatible with this unit:
• ISO 9660 – file name: 12 characters, file extension: 3 characters

If the file or folder name does not conform to ISO 9660 file system standards, it

MP3 Playing Order
When selected for play, files and folders are accessed in the order they were
written by the CD writer. As a result, the order in which they are expected to be
played may not match the order in which they are actually played. You may be
able to set the order in which MP3/WMA files are to be played by writing them
onto a medium such as a CD-R with their file names beginning with play
sequence numbers such as “01” to “99”.
