Tips for making WMA/MP3 and JPEG discs (For CD-R/CD-RW)
≥ Discs must conform to ISO9660 level 1 or 2 (except for extended
formats).
≥ This unit is compatible with multi-session but if there are a lot of
sessions it takes more time for play to start. Keep the number of
sessions to a minimum to avoid this.
Naming folders and files
At the time of recording, prefix folder
and file names with 3-digit numbers in
the order you want to play them (this
may not work at times).
Files must have the extension:
“.WMA” or “.wma”
“.MP3” or “.mp3”
“.JPG”, “.jpg”, “.JPEG” or “.jpeg”
[WMA]
≥You cannot play WMA files that are copy protected.
[MP3]
≥This unit is not compatible with ID3 tags.
≥Compatible sampling rate: 8, 11.02, 12, 16, 22.05, 24, 32, 44.1, and
48 kHz
[JPEG]
≥To view JPEG files on this unit:
– Take them on a digital camera that meets the DCF Standard (Design
rule for Camera File system) Version 1.0. Some digital cameras have
functions that are not supported by the DCF Standard Version 1.0
like automatic picture rotation which may render a picture un-
viewable.
– Do not alter the files in any way or save them under a different name.
≥This unit cannot display moving pictures, MOTION JPEG and other
such formats, still pictures other than JPEG (e.g. TIFF) or play
associated sound.
