MP3 CD-R Disc MP3 Format

If you burn your own MP3 disc on a personal computer:

• Make sure the MP3 files are recorded on a CD-R disc.
• Do not mix standard audio and MP3 files on one disc.
• Make sure playlists have a.m3u or.wpl extension, other file extensions may not work.
• Files can be recorded with a variety of fixed or variable bit rates. Song title, artist name, and album is available for display by the radio when recorded using ID3 tags version 1 and 2.
• Create a folder structure that makes it easy to find songs while driving. Organize songs by albums using one folder for each album.

Each folder or album should contain 18 songs or less.

• Make sure to finalize the disc when burning an MP3 disc, using multiple sessions. It is usually better to burn the disc all at once.

The player is able to read and play a maximum of 50 folders, 50 playlists, 10 sessions, and 255 files. Long file names, folder names, or playlist names can use more disc memory space than necessary. To conserve space on the disc, minimize the length of the file, folder, or playlist names. You can also play an MP3 CD that was recorded using no file folders. The system can support up to 11 folders in depth, though, keep the depth of the folders to a minimum in order to keep down the complexity and confusion in trying to locate a particular folder during playback. If a CD contains more than the maximum of 50 folders, 50 playlists, 10 sessions, and 255 files the player lets you access and navigate up to the maximum, but all items over the maximum are ignored.
