To Play a PC Card  
Always use the recommended  
memory card with the appropriate  
adapter (if an adapter is needed).  
Some memory cards will not work in  
this unit.  
Never insert foreign objects into  
the PC card slot.  
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 specifications for compatible  
MP3 files are:

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.  
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.

Do not keep PC cards in the  
vehicle. Direct sunlight and high  
heat will damage them.  
Maximum layers  
(including ROOT): 8 layers
