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.
Page: 5
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.

Microsoft may revoke (either on its own or upon the request of the owners of Secure Content
(“Secure Content Owners”)) the WM-DRM Software’s right to acquire new licenses to copy,

transfer, store, copy, display and/or play Secure Content which you have previously stored on
your Device. Revocation does not alter the WM-DRM Software’s ability to play unprotected

In the event of revocation, Philips will attempt to make available software updates to restore
some or all of your device’s ability to transfer, store, access, copy, display and/or play Secure
Content. However, the ability to make such updates available does not rest solely with
Philips. Philips does not guarantee that, after revocation, such software updates will be
available. If such updates are not available, your device will not have the ability to transfer,
store, copy, display and/or play Secure Content - even Secure Content which you have
previously stored on your device.
In addition, even if such software updates are available, they may not enable your Device to
transfer, store, copy, display, and/or play Secure Content which was previously stored on
your Device. In some cases you may be able to transfer the content from the PC. In other
cases, you may have to repurchase previously obtained Secure Content.
To summarize - Microsoft, Secure Content Owners, and Secure Content distributors may
deny you access, or restrict your access, to Secure Content. They may also disable your
device’s ability to transfer, store, copy, display and/or play Secure Content even after you
have paid for and obtained it. Neither your consent nor the consent or approval of Philips is
necessary for any of them to deny, withhold or otherwise restrict your access to Secure
Content or to disable your device’s ability to transfer, store, access, copy, display, and/or play
Secure Content. Philips does not guaranty that you will be able to transfer, store, access,
copy, display, and/or play Secure Content.

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.

the songs in the CD. To modify this option, click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select

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
