Mp3 and wma files

Mp3 (mpeg audio layer3) is a standard audio compression format.

Files can be compressed to approximately 1/10 of their original size by using mp3 compression.

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.

There is a limit to the mp3 and wma file standards and to the media/formats recorded by them that can be used.

Mp3 file compatibility

Mp3 (mpeg1 layer3, mpeg2 lsf layer3)

Mpeg1 layer3: 32, 44.1, 48 (Khz) mpeg2 lsf layer3: 16, 22.05, 24 (Khz)

Mpeg1 layer3: 32 „o 320 (kbps)

Wma file compatibility

Wma ver. 7, 8, 9

32, 44.1, 48 (Khz)

Ver. 7, 8: Cbr 48 „o 192 (kbps) ver. 9: Cbr 48 „o 320 (kbps)

Media that can be used for mp3 and wma playback are cd-rs and cdrws.

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

The following disc formats can be used.

Cd-rom mode 1 and mode 2

Cd-rom xa mode 2, form 1 and form 2

File formats: iso9660 level 1, level 2, (romeo, joliet) mp3 and wma 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 and played are those with the extension .Mp3 or .Wma.


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

Id3 and wma tags

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

Mp3 and wma playback

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

If the discs contain a mixture of music data and mp3 or wma format data, only music data can be played.


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