Wma (windows media audio) is a microsoft audio compression format.

This format compresses audio data to a size smaller than that of the mp3 format.

Compatible media

Media that can be used for mp3, wma and aac playback are cd-rs and cd-rws.

Playback in some instances may not be possible if the cd-r or cd-rw is not finalized. Playback may not be possible or the audio may jump if the disc is scratched or marked with fingerprints.

Compatible disc formats

The following disc formats can be used.

Mp3, wma and aac files written in any format other than those listed above may not play correctly, and their file names and folder names may not be displayed correctly.

Items related to standards and limitations are as follows.

File names

The only files that can be recognized as mp3/wma/aac and played are those with the extension .Mp3, .Wma or .M4a.

Discs containing multi-session recordings

As the audio system is compatible with multi session discs, it is possible to play discs that contain mp3, wma and aac files. However, only the first session can be played.

Id3, wma and aac tags

Id3 tags can be added to mp3 files, making it possible to record the track title, artist name, etc.

The system is compatible with id3 ver. 1.0, 1.1, And ver. 2.2, 2.3 Id3 tags.

(The number of characters is based on id3 ver. 1.0 And 1.1.) Wma tags can be added to wma files, making it possible to record the track title and artist name in the same way as with id3 tags.

Aac tags can be added to aac files, making it possible to record the track title and artist name in the same way as with id3 tags.

Mp3, wma and aac playback

When a disc containing mp3, wma or aac files is inserted, all files on the disc are first checked. Once the file check is finished, the first mp3, wma or aac file is played. To make the file check finish more quickly, we recommend you do not write any files to the disc other than mp3, wma or aac files or create any unnecessary folders.

Discs that contain a mixture of music data and mp3, wma or aac format data cannot be played.


If the file extensions .Mp3, .Wma and .M4a are used for files other than mp3, wma and aac files, they may be mistakenly recognized and played as mp3, wma and aac files. This may result in large amounts of interference and damage to the speakers.

Do not use the following types of cds.

Also, do not use 3 in. (8 Cm) cd adapters, dualdiscs or printable discs.
