Below, the name of each preference is followed by its options in parentheses, with the default option in
DISC NAME (Display/Not)
This preference determines whether the disc name is displayed when an MP3 disc is loaded.
FILE NAME (Scroll/Not)
This preference determines whether the file name scrolls across the display when an MP3 file is selected.
FOLDER NAME (Scroll/Not)
This preference determines whether the folder name scrolls across the display when an MP3 folder is selected. In Navigation mode, the folder name scrolls across the display regardless of this setting.
BAD NAME (Replace/Not)
This preference determines whether file and folder names that contain undisplayable characters are replaced with “File n” or “Folder n,” “n” being the file or folder number. When set to Not Replace, displayable characters are displayed and underscore characters are used in place of any undisplayable characters. For ID3 tags, underscore characters are used in place of undisplayable characters regardless of this preference.
File and folder names are scrolled in Navigation mode regardless of the FILE NAME and FOLDER NAME preferences.
ID3 VER. 1 (Read/Not Read)
This preference determines whether version 1.0/1.1 tags are read and displayed. When set to Not Read, version 1.0/1.1 tags are not displayed.
ID3 VER. 2 (Read/Not Read)
This preference determines whether version 2.2/2.3/2.4 tags are read and displayed. When set to Not Read, version 2.2/2.3/2.4 ID3 tags are not displayed.
CD EXTRA (Audio/MP3)
This preference applies to CD Extra discs and determines whether music in the audio session or
MP3 files in the data session are played.
JOLIET (Use SVD/ISO9660)
This preference applies to MP3 discs in Joliet format and determines whether the CD-Player reads the SVD data or treats the disc as an ISO 9660 disc. Normally, this preference doesn’t need to be changed.
SVD (Supplementary Volume Descriptor) supports long file and folder names and characters other than
letters and numbers. Some CD burning software refers to the Joliet format as “Windows format.”
HIDE NUMBER (Disable/Enable) This preference determines whether the numbers at the beginning of file and folder names are hidden.
When you create an MP3 CD on a personal computer, you cannot normally determine the playback order of the files. However, if you number the MP3 files in order, starting with 01, 02, 03, and so on, they will play in that order. If you don’t want these numbers to appear on the display, choose Enable. The following table shows a few examples of numbered file and folder names and how they will appear with the Disable and Enable options.
STOP KEY (All Folder/Navigation/Disable)
This preference determines how the Stop button on the CD Player works.
When the ALL Folder option is selected, pressing the Stop button once selects All Folder mode. When the Navigation option is selected, pressing the Stop button once selects Navigation mode. When the Disable option is selected, the CD Player does not enter Navigation or All Folder mode when you press the Stop button.
Please refer to “Setting Auto Standby (ASb)” (page 15) for details of the procedure. On the North American model: The default setting is “Off”. On the European model: The default setting is “On”.
