4 Playing MP3 files What is MP3? A method of compressing audio, MPEG Audio Layer 3 (MP3) allows audio to be reduced to up to one tenth its original size when a compression rate of 128 kbps is used, without overtly hurting audio quality. When creating MP3 files to play on this unit ≥Disc formats: ISO9660 level 1 and level 2 (except for extended formats) ≥Files: MP3 files with the suffix “.mp3” or “.MP3” ≥MP3 files may not be played in the order you recorded them. Note the following if you want the files to play in the order you record them. ≥1 Use software that records the files to the disc in file name order. ≥2 Prefix folder and file names with 3-digit numbers in the order you want to play them. ≥3 Give the files and folders names with 8 characters or less, including the 3-digit prefix. ≥4 It is better not to create folders (albums) within fold- ers (such as shown in example 2). This unit plays MP3 files in the following order. Numbers such as 1 show the order folders (albums) and files (tracks) within them are played. Example1: Recommended method when creating MP3 discs. Example2: A disc not created in the recommended way. ≥Play will be in the order shown in the below diagram, irrespective of folder and track names, so the order of play in this example will be A#C#G#D, not A#B#C#D. Folders and files in the same level will be played in order according to their names. ≥Folders that do not contain MP3 files ( “Falbum” in the example) are skipped. Example2 Example1 Limitations on MP3 ≥This unit cannot play files if they have a suffix other than “.mp3” or “.MP3”. ≥This unit cannot play files that have the suffix “.mp3” or “.MP3” if they are not MP3 files. ≥This unit can display album and track titles with ID3 tags (version 1.0 and 1.1). Titles including text data the unit doesn’t support cannot be displayed. ≥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. ≥This unit cannot play files recorded using packet write. . Frequently asked questions Q. Can I play a disc if it has both audio data and MP3 data? Yes, but only the data type used for the first track is played. Q. Is there a limit on the number of albums and tracks? This unit can play a maximum of 999 albums and 999 tracks. The unit cannot play albums or tracks beyond these limits. Q. Why is sound interrupted between tracks? The pick-up lens has to move to find the next track so a few seconds of silence is normal. Q. Can I use 700-MB data? Yes, you can. 001track.mp3 002track.mp3 003track.mp3 001album 002album 003album 004track.mp3 005track.mp3 006track.mp3 007track.mp3 008track.mp3 009track.mp3 010track.mp3 CD-ROM drive 1 2 3 1 Aalbum ????.mp3 ????.mp3 CD-ROM drive 4 Dalbum ????.mp3 ????.mp3 ????.mp3 ????.mp3 2 Calbum ????.mp3 ????.mp3 3 Galbum ????.wav ????.wav Falbum 5 Balbum ????.mp3 ????.mp3 ????.mp3 ????.mp3 6 Ealbum (Skipped) Other Play Methods Skip play The disc plays from the specified track through to the end, then play stops automatically.

Listening caution Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous ex- tended play. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use. Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas. You should use extreme caution or temporarily discon- tinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air type designed to let you hear outside sounds, don’t turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you. Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “com- fort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts. To establish a safe level: ≥Start your volume control at a low setting. ≥Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it com- fortably and clearly, and without distortion. Once you have established a comfortable sound level: ≥Leave it there. Cautions EST. 1924 ∫ Selection As a safety precaution, the portable CD players made by Panasonic are constructed so it is impossible to recharge ordinary batteries. Only batteries especially designed for this unit can be recharged. Special rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries: P-3GAVA/2B (set of 2) For details, check with your dealer. ≥If rechargeable battery play time is short after recharg- ing, the batteries have reached the end of their service life. Replace them with the recommended replace- ments. ≥Play time may be shorter than usual after recharging batteries for the first time or after they have been un- used for a long time. Repeatedly recharge and dis- charge the batteries if this occurs to restore them to normal. ∫ Care To prevent battery damage, electrolyte leakage and short-circuiting, heed the following points. ≥Do not peel off the covering on batteries and do not use if the covering has been peeled off. ≥Align the poles + and - correctly when inserting the batteries. ≥Do not mix different types or of batteries or old and new batteries.
