ment settings, it may not be possible to play discs created on a com-
puter. Record discs in a format playable on this unit. For details, contact
your application’s selling agent.

play the disc.
See Handling discs on page 38 for instructions on handling discs.

 Creating backup discs
When CD-R/-RW discs are paused or left in the pause mode at cue
points for long periods of time, it may become difficult to play the disc at
that point, due to the properties of the disc. Also, when a specific point
is looped repeatedly an extremely large number of times, it may become
difficult to play that point.
When playing valuable discs, we recommend making backup discs.

About MP3 files
MP3 files include constant bit rate (CBR) and variable bit rate (VBR) files.
Both types can be played on this unit, but the searching speed is slower
for VBR files than for CBR files. To prioritize operability, we recommend
recording files in CBR.
About AAC files
!	 AAC is the abbreviation of “Advanced Audio Coding”, a basic format
of audio compression technology used for MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
!	 The file format and extension of AAC data depends on the applica-
tion used to create the data.
!	 On this unit, in addition to AAC files encoded with iTunes®
and with
the extension “.m4a”, files with the extensions “.aac” and “.mp4” files
can also be played. However, AAC files that are copyright-protected,
such as those purchased from the iTunes Store, cannot be played.
Also, depending on the version of iTunes in which the file was
encoded, it may not be possible to play the file.
About ID3 tags
The tag information types which can be registered from a music file are
ID3 tags (v1, v1.1, v2.2.0, v2.3.0, and v2.4.0) or meta tags.

Cautions concerning security when using
wireless LAN products
Wireless LAN connections offer the advantage that because the infor-
mation is exchanged between the computer, etc., and the wireless LAN
access point using radio waves rather than a LAN cable, LAN connec-
tions are possible as long as the devices are within the range of the radio
waves.
On the other hand, because the radio waves reach all places within their
range, even through such obstacles as walls, the problems below may
occur if the security settings have not been made.
!	 Exchanged information may be viewed surreptitiously
	 Third parties with malicious intents may deliberately intercept the
radio waves and surreptitiously view the exchanged information,
including ID numbers, passwords, credit card numbers and other
personal information or e-mail messages.
!	 Your network may be infiltrated without authorization
	 Third parties with malicious intents may access your personal or
company network without authorization and obtain personal or con-
fidential information (leakage of information), impersonate specific
persons and release false information (impersonation), rewrite inter-
cepted information and issue the rewritten information (falsification)
or plant computer viruses, etc., that damage your data or system
(vandalism).
	 Wireless LAN products normally have a security system. Using the
product with the security settings activated decreases the above
risks.
	 It is your responsibility to thoroughly understand the risks of using
wireless LAN products without security settings and to make the
security settings according to your personal judgment.

Cautions on use
About condensation
Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating
parts and lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a
cold place into a warm room or if the temperature in the room in which
the unit is installed rises suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will
not operate properly and will not be playable with condensation inside.
Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature (though this
time depends on the conditions of the condensation) without turning on
the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will become
playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is
exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens,
move the unit to a different location.
Cleaning the lens
The player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some
reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest
Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for players are
commercially available, we advise against using them since some may
damage the lens.
Handling discs
Storing
!	 Always place discs in their cases and store them vertically, avoiding
hot, humid places, places exposed to direct sunlight and extremely
cold places.
!	 Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.
Cleaning discs
!	 Discs may not play if there are fingerprints or dust on them. In this
case, use a cleaning cloth, etc., to gently wipe the disc from the
inside towards the outside. Do not use dirty cleaning cloths.
!	 Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not
use record spray or antistatic agents.
!	 For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly,
wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.
!	 Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
!	 Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or dirty.
!	 Do not place two discs in the disc tray, one on top of the other.
!	 Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing so could
warp discs, making it impossible to play them. Also note that rental
discs often have labels attached to them, and the label’s glue may
have oozed out. Check that there is no glue around the edges of such
labels before using rented discs.
About specially shaped discs
Irregularly shaped discs other than standard 12 cm discs cannot be
played on this unit (doing so will lead to damage or accidents).
Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be played
on this unit. Do not attempt to play such discs, as they could damage
the unit.
About condensation on discs
Water droplets (condensation) may form on the surface of discs if they
are moved from a cold place (particularly in winter) into a warm room.
Discs may not play normally if there is condensation on them. Carefully
wipe the water droplets off the surface of the disc before loading it.
