To Play a PC Card

You operate the PC card player with the same controls used for the radio and the disc player. To load or play a card, the ignition switch must be in the ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II) position.

The PC card player reads and plays cards in MP3 or WMA formats.

Depending on the format, the screen will indicate ‘‘MP3’’ or ‘‘WMA’’ when a card is playing. The card limit of the player is 255 folders and 999 tracks. If the card has a complex structure, it takes some time for the system to begin playing it.

Based on PCMCIA 2.1/JEIDA 4.2, the recommended PC cards for the PC card reader are:

SD memory card
CompactFlash
Flash ATA

Always use the recommended memory card with the appropriate adapter (if an adapter is needed).

Some memory cards will not work in this unit.

NOTE:

When you insert a PC card into the slot, make sure you put it in straight. If you cannot insert it, remove it, and insert again.

Do not keep PC cards in the vehicle. Direct sunlight and high heat will damage them.

To avoid damaging the card reader, do not insert hard disc drive cards into the PC card slot.

You cannot close the screen (move it to the upright position) until the PC card is inserted all the way into its slot or removed.

Never insert foreign objects into the PC card slot.
