    Operating Instructions
    DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES
    YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING
    YOUR VEHICLE.
    Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be
    performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle
    in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do
    so may result in an accident.
    KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN
    STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISES WHILE DRIVING.
    Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency
    vehicle sirens or road warning signals (train crossings, etc.) can be
    dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD
    VOLUME LEVELS IN A CAR MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING
    DAMAGE.
    MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
    Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of
    the vehicle and cause an accident.
    DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
    Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
    USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE
    GROUND.
    (Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
    result in fire, etc.
    KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT
    OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
    Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
    consult a physician immediately.
    USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN
    REPLACING FUSES.
    Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
    DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
    Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.
    USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V
    APPLICATIONS.
    Use for other than its designed application may result in fire,
    electric shock or other injury.
    DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN

    Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the
    product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest
    Alpine Service Centre for repairing.
    PRECAUTIONS
    Product Cleaning
    Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of the product. For more
    severe stains, please dampen the cloth with water only. Anything
    else has the chance of dissolving the paint or damaging the plastic.
    Temperature
    Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +55°C
    (+131°F) and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your unit on.
    Moisture Condensation
    You may notice the CD playback sound wavering due to
    condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player and
    wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
    Damaged Disc
    Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
    a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.
    Maintenance
    If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself.
    Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service
    Station for servicing.
    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.

    Receiving RDS Stations
    The RDS (Radio Data System) is a radio information system
    using the 57 kHz subcarrier of regular FM broadcast. The RDS
    allows you to receive a variety of information such as traffic
    information, station names, and to automatically re-tune to a
    stronger transmitter that is broadcasting the same programme.

    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.
