This DVD player is capable of playing the following types of discs: DVDs, audio CDs, Video CDs, CDs with mp3 files, WMA files (Windows Media Audio), and CDs with JPEG files on them. Before you put a disc in the player, make sure it is compatible.
You can’t play the following types of discs: Laserdiscs, CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), DVD-ROM, discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM), or CD-G discs.
Note: Some discs may not be comptible due to laser pickup and disc design.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three separate types of menus that you can use to access features:
The Disc menu – The Disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD player’s menu. The contents of each Disc menu vary according to how the disc was authored and what features are included. The Disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing) with the MENU button on the remote.
The DVD player’s Info Display – The Info Display appears as icons across the top of the screen when a disc is playing. It can only be accessed while you are playing a disc. It’s turned on and off with the INFO button on the remote.
The DVD player menu – The DVD player’s menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t playing. It appears automatically when you press the STOP button on the remote.
Remember: A feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example, if you choose subtitles on the Info Display, the subtitles will only appear if the disc was created with subtitles. If a menu or icon is “grayed out” it means that item (or feature) isn’t available.
