WARNING

WARNING
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in serious injury
or death.CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or
material property damage.
Never Attempt the Following
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the
player by the automatic reloading mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power is
off.
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not
attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in
skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.
New Discs
To prevent the CD from jamming, the LCD is displayed as error if
discs with irregular surfaces are inserted or if discs are inserted
incorrectly. When a new disc is ejected immediately after initial
loading, use your finger to feel around the inside of the centre hole
and outside edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps or
irregularities, this could inhibit proper loading of the disc. To
remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole and outside edge
of the disc with a ballpoint pen or other such instrument, then insert
the disc again.
Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and never use
any special shape discs.
Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
Installation Location
Make sure this unit will not be installed in a location subjected to:
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Correct Handling
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you will not
leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or
gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.
Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the
CD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe the playing surface
with a clean, soft cloth from the centre of the disc to the outer edge.
If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a
solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.
Disc Accessories
There are various accessories available on the market for protecting
the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of
them will influence the thickness and/or diameter of the disc. Using
such accessories can cause the disc to be out of standard
specifications and may create operational problems. We
recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine
CD players.

About MP3
What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3,” is a
compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International
Standardization Organization and MPEG which is a joint activity
institution of the IEC.
MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is
capable of compressing audio data at extremely high ratios,
reducing the size of music files to as much as one-tenth their
original size. This is achieved while still maintaining near CD
quality. The MP3 format realises such high compression ratios by
eliminating the sounds that are
either inaudible to the human ear
or masked by other sounds.
Method for creating MP3 files
Audio data are compressed using software with MP3 codec. For
details on creating MP3 files, refer to the user’s manual for that
software.
MP3 files that are playable on this device have the file extension
“mp3”. Files with no extension cannot be played back.
CAUTION
Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3
data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it, whether for free
or for a fee, without permission of the copyright holder is strictly
prohibited by the Copyright Act and by international treaty.
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
MP3
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates.
ID3 tags
This device supports ID3 tag.
If tag data is in an MP3 file, this device can display the title (track
title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag data.
This device can only display up to 64 characters. (Unicoded file
and folder names are up to 32 characters.)
For non-supported characters and symbols an asterisk is
displayed.
If information contains characters other than ID3 tag information,
the audio file may not be played back.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending
on the contents.
Produci
ng MP3 discs
MP3 files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or
CD-RW using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 512
files/folders (including Root Folders), and the maximum number
of folders is 255.
Playback may not be performed if a disc exceeds the limitations
described above.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs,
and CD-RWs.
Corresponding File Systems
This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level 1 or
Level 2.
This device also can play back discs in Joliet, Romeo, etc., and
other standards that conform to ISO9660. However, sometimes
the file names, folder names
, etc., are not displayed correctly.
Formats supported
This device supports Multi-Session.
This device cannot correctly play back discs recorded with Track
At Once or packet writing.
Apple HFS, UDF 1.50, Mixed Mode CD and Enhanced CD (CD-
Extra) are not supported.
Order of files
Files are played back in the order that the writing software writes
them to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not be what
is expected. Verify the writing order in the software’s
documentation. The playback order of the folders and files is as
follows.
* The folder No./ folder Name will not be displayed if no file is
contained in the folder.
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The
higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger
the files.
Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled
(recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz,
so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The
higher the
sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the
larger the volume of data.
Encoding
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files
into the specified audio compression format.
Tag
Song information such as track titles, artist names, album names,
etc., written into MP3 files.
Root folder
The root folder (or root directory) is found at the top of the file
system. The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created
automatically for all burned
discs.
Sampling rates: 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz, 24 kHz, 22.05 kHz,
16 kHz, 12 kHz, 11.025 kHz, 8 kHz
Bit rates: 8 - 320 kbps
Under the ISO9660 standard, there are some restrictions to
remember.
The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the root
directory). The number of characters for a folder/file name is
limited.
Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z, a-z,
numbers 0-9 and symbols.
