About HD Radio™ Technology
HD Radio technology allows CD-quality digital broadcasting
of your local AM and FM radio stations. HD Radio broadcasts
can include multiple channels on the same frequency, which
is called multicasting. With multicasting, you can receive up
to eight additional multicast channels: HD1-HD8. With your
VM9312HD radio, you will receive HD Radio digital
broadcasts automatically when tuned to a station that offers
HD Radio technology.

MP3IWMA OPERATION
Instructions for TFT control and Insert/Eject are the same for
DVD and MP3 operation. Please see the DVD/Disc Video
Operation section for information about these topics.
Media and File Requirements
This player allows you to play back MP3 and VIlMA files
recorded onto CD-R/RWs, DVD+R/RWs, and DVD-R/RWs.
For CD-RW discs, please make sure it is formatted using the
full method and not the quick method to prevent illegal disc
operation.
Up to 1500 songs/files can be burned onto a disc for a MEGA
DVD music mix. Do not exceed this number of songs/files or
disc readability problems may occur.
MP3 Format Compatibility
The file naming formats listed below are compatible with this
unit:
ISO 9660 - file name: 12 characters, file extension: 3
characters
ISO 9660 - file name: 31 characters, file extension: 3
characters
Joliet - 64 characters
If the file or folder name does not conform to ISO 9660 file
system standards, it may not be displayed or played back
correctly. Use the following settings when compressing audio
data for your MP3 disc:
Transfer Bit Rate: 128kbps
Sampling Frequency: 48kHz
When recording MP3 up to the maximum disc capacity,
disable additional writing. For recording on an empty disc up
to maximum disc capacity, use the "Disc at once" setting.
MP3 Playing Order
When selected for play, files and folders (Folder Search, File
Search or Folder Select) are accessed in the order they were
written by the CD writer. As a result, the order in which they
are expected to be played may not match the order in which
they are actually played. You may be able to set the order in
which MP3I'WMA files are to be played by writing them onto a
medium such as a CD-R with their file names beginning with
play sequence numbers such as "01" to "99".
For example, a medium with the following folder/file hierarchy
is subject to Folder Search, File Search or Folder Select, as
shown below.

Care and Maintenance
1. Use only a clean silicone cloth and neutral detergent to
clean the front panel or monitor. A rough cloth and non-
neutral detergent (such as alcohol) may result in
scratching or discoloration.
2. Do not get water or cleaning fluids on the unit.
3. If the temperature inside the player gets too hot, a
protective circuit automatically stops play of the disc. If
this occurs, allow the unit to cool before operating the
player again.
4. Never insert anything other than a 5" (12 cm) compact
disc into the player as the mechanism can be damaged
by foreign objects.
5. Do not attempt to use a 3" (8 cm) CD-Single disc in this
unit, either with or without an adaptor, as damage to the
player and/or disc may occur. Such damage is not
covered by the warranty on this product.
6. The CD player may not operate properly in extreme hot
or cold. If such conditions occur, allow the interior of the
vehicle to reach a normal temperature before using
player.
7. When the vehicle warms up during cold weather or
under damp conditions, condensation may appear on
the LCD panel. Should this occur, the screen will not
operate properly until the moisture has evaporated.
8. We suggest you use a cleaning disc in this unit more
frequently than in the unit in your home due to the
environmental conditions of the vehicle.
