Frequently Asked Questions
I found a lot of questions
by people on message boards and other places, and hopefully this
list will help answer some of them. If the question you have isn't
answered here, check the message board! It's proved to be an excellent
source of information.
Will My mp3/cd player or my mp3/vcd/cd player play normal audio
Yes, it will. The player recognize automatically
if the CD contained
MP3, CDDA or WAV files
Will my mp3/cd player or my mp3/vcd/cd player read CD-RW
discs as well as normal CD-Rs?
Yes it can. It is capable
of reading MP3 files on 1x, 2x, and 4x CD-RW. However, you must
re format CD-RW every time you want to record new group of MP3 files.
No multisession recording allowed.
Why won't my player read all my MP3s!??!
Ok, first off CALM DOWN! Your player is not defective,
and don't rush to return it.
The thing is, the
player will not read all your files if they are all lumped into
The best strategy
is to separate your mp3s into three or so
Also the problem
could be that you burned a non-mp3 file
on your CD-R. You can't mix WAV or CDDA with MP3 files.But you can
actually mix mp3 files with *JPEG,*GIF,*ZIP,*RAR,*DOC and *TXT files,
the player will ignore those files and read only the MP3 files contained
on the CD-R.
The player will only
read mp3s that are sampled
at 32khz,44.1khz or 48khz khz and encoded
between 32Kbps and 224Kbps
The player don't
support CD-Rs or CD-RWs burned in multiple sessions.
Make sure also that
you burn the CD in mode 1, not Mode
2-XA. More info on this in tips.
Does my mp3/cd player or my mp3/vcd/cd player support subdirectories
Yes, the player pretty much needs subfolders
in order to read all the mp3s on the disc. Check out the tips
section for more information.
(limit of 8 subfolders
dir/ and max of 80 mp3s files per subfolders)
Will ID3 tags be supported?
No. The LCD only displays the song number, directory
number, and track length.
How about Winamp Playlists?
Nope. Only mp3 files. And if you have other files
besides mp3s, it can cause the Player to not read all of the songs.
Again, look at the tips for more info.
Will my mp3/cd player or my mp3/vcd/cd player
read variable bitrate (VBR) mp3s?
The Napa Dav-310 , Supertek mp-2000 , Avex dm-5 are
able to read Variable bit rate mp3s.
What sorts of mp3s are supported?
The disco Trip, will only read mp3s that are sampled
at 44.1 khz and encoded between 32Kbps and 196Kbps.
The Napa Dav-310
, Supertek mp-2000 , Avex dm-5 will
read mp3s that are sampled at 32khz,44.1khz or 48khz khz and encoded
between 32Kbps and 224Kbps.
Also, these players don't support
long filenames.( max of 256 characters )
This doesn't mean that they will not play files with long names
(thank goodness!), but it might mess up the order of song play.For
example, here is a remark by someone in the mp3.com newsgroup (thnx
"In addition, the track numbering follows a strange logic... It's
based on DOS 8.3 names which exclude such characters as commas,
apostrophes and spaces. Any of these characters will be deleted
from the 8.3 name and all "LEGAL" characters including dashes and
underscores will be pushed together to fill in. After the sixth
character, a ~1 (or other number) will be appended. This only occasionally
causes mistakes when you dump your song list using Windows. For
example, Windows orders files as such:
#1 "It's all right"
#2 "It make sence"
In DOS they appear as ITSALL~1 and ITMAKE~1, so they are ordered
#1 "ITMAKE~1" (It make sence)
#2 "ITSALL~1" (It's all right)"
Will my mp3/cd player or my mp3/vcd/cd player tell me what song
I am listening to?
Yes, but not by track title or artist. The LCD on
the player can only display the number of the track (ordered alphabetically)
and the track length. So it's handy to have a reference card handy
with all the tracks of the CD numbered on it lying around. Check
out tips for more info.
How do I skip tracks rapidly?
Press and release the Next (or Preview, to go backwards)
button. Now hit it again and hold it down. The track numbers will
