Playing mp3 and WMA music files and displaying JPEG files
mp3 is an audio file format which compresses recorded music. It was developed by Fraunhofer Gesellschaft in collaboration with Thomson Inc. The main advantage of the mp3 format is that it means CD-quality music tracks can be stored on a personal computer in user-friendly, compressed files.
WMA (Windows Media Audio) is another audio file format developed by Microsoft. JPEG files are image files.
Note: The time taken for the contents of the disc to be displayed varies according to the size and number of JPEG files actually on the disc. If nothing is displayed after a few minutes, it is likely that certain files are too large. Try reducing the files’ resolution and write another disc.
Displaying JPEG files or playing mp3 or WMA files Before inserting a disc, check that it is compatible with the player.
Open the tray by pressing the OPEN•CLOSE button.
Place the disc with the printed side facing up.
If the AutoPlay option in the Play Mode menu is enabled (see page 38), the disc’s contents are
displayed, otherwise press the PLAY button to display them.
4. Select a folder using the up and down arrow buttons on the remote control, then press OK to display the list of files or press PLAY to start playing all the files contained in the folder.
Example of folder list and mp3 files.
5. Select a file using the arrow buttons, then press PLAY to start playback.
Note: When a music file (mp3 or WMA) is selected for more than two seconds, the player lets you hear the first few seconds of the song.
mp3 or WMA file: the player begins by playing the selected file, then all the files and subfolders contained in the same folder. The player then plays the contents of the folders at the same level as the folder containing the file selected at the start.
Note: While listening you can use the
buttons to go back
to the previous track or go on to the next one and press the MENU
button to display the disc’s contents.
JPEG file: the player starts the slide show with the JPEG file you have selected and proceeds to display all the JPEG files in the same folder, then all the JPEG files in the subfolders located in the same folder.
Example of folder list and jpeg files.
Note: During the slide show you can use the ANGLE button to rotate
the picture 90°, the ZOOM button to magnify the picture, the
buttons to go back to the previous picture or go on to the next one and the MENU button to interrupt the slide show and display the disc’s contents.
