3 1 Important safety information General maintenance To avoid damage or malfunction: • Do not expose the player to excessive heat caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight. • Do not drop your player or allow objects to fall on your player. • Do not allow your player to be submerged in water. Do not expose headphone socket or battery compartment to water, as water entering the set may cause major damage. • Do not use any cleaning agents containing alcohol, ammonia, benzene, or abrasives as these may harm the set. • Active mobile phones in the vicinity may cause interference. • Backup your files. Please ensure that you retain the original files you have downloaded to your device. Philips is not responsible for any loss of data if the product becomes damaged or not readable / legible. • Manage (transfer, delete, etc.) your music files only with the supplied music software to avoid problems! About operating and storage temperatures • Operate in a place where temperature is always between 0 and 35ºC (32 to 95ºF) • Store in a place where temperature is always between -20 and 45ºC (-4 to 113ºF) • Battery life may be shortened in low temperature conditions. Replacement parts/accessories Visit www.philips.com/support or contact our Customer Care Helpline (the telephone number can be found on the first page of this manual) to order replacement parts/accessories. Hearing Safety Listen at a moderate volume. • Using headphones at a high volume can impair your hearing. This product can produce sounds in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for a normal person, even for exposure less than a minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered for those that may have already experienced some hearing loss. • Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. To guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before your hearing adapts and leave it there. To establish a safe volume level: • Set your volume control at a low setting. • Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time: • Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally “safe” levels, can also cause hearing loss. • Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take appropriate breaks. Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headphones. • Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable periods of time. • Be careful not to adjust the volume as your hearing adapts. • Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you. • You should use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. • Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas. Important (for models supplied with headphones): Philips guarantees compliance with the maximum sound power of its audio players as determined by relevant regulatory bodies only with the original model of provided headphones. In case this one needs replacement, we recommend that you contact your retailer to order a model identical to that of the original, provided by Philips.

23 4.2.3 Rip songs from a CD If you want to transfer music from a CD to your player, you need to create a digital copy of the music on your computer first. This is called ripping. 1 Start Windows Media Player. 2 Click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select Format to choose the format you want. 3 Click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select Bit Rate to choose the bit rate you want.

To modify this option, click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select Rip CD Automatically When Inserted > Never. Important Make sure that you are connected to the Internet before you start ripping so that Windows Media Player can download the album and track information from an online music database. If your computer is not connected to the Internet, you will have to enter the album and track information manually. As Windows Media Player may not always identify the right song on the CD and the online music database may not always have the correct information (especially for new album releases or albums from lesser-known artists), you may need to manually edit or enter the album and track information. See Edit song information via Windows Media Player.
25 5 Select the songs that you want to rip by clicking on the checkboxes. 6 Click Start Rip. > The selected tracks will be converted and added to Windows Media Player library. 4.2.4 Buy music online If you want to buy music online, you need to select a music store. 1 Start Windows Media Player. 2 Click the down arrow beneath the Media Guide tab and select Browse all Online Stores. 3 Choose a store and follow the on-screen instructions.

Automatic: If your player has sufficient storage space (at least 4GB of free space) and your entire media library can fit on your player, your entire media library will be automatically copied to your player as soon as you connect it to your computer. Manual: If your entire media library cannot fit on the player, then you will be prompted to manually select specific files or playlists that you want to transfer to your player. 4.3.1 Set up your player 1 Start Windows Media Player. 2 Switch on your player and then connect it to your computer using the supplied USB cable. > If prompted, select the option to sync the device using Windows Media Player. 3 If Windows Media Player selects to sync your device automatically, click Finish. > Your entire library will sync to your player.

To do so, select the Shuffle what syncs check box. Thereafter, every time you connect your player to the computer, the files on your player are removed and a new set of files (from the Playlists to sync pane) are added to the device.
