Operation Check for Inspection (Test Mode)
Precautions
1. Be sure to remove the battery from this set. (The power is supplied via USB cable)
Operating the set in the Test mode with the battery loaded could clear necessary information.
2. If operation check was performed for inspection, execute “Play Info Initialize” in qd (see page 7) to return respective functions to
initial positions (see Table 1-5 on page 7). In such a case, record current position of each function before executing “Play Info
Initialize” in qd, if necessary.

Network Walkman can only playback those WMA
files that are listed in the "Available File Formats" in
the "Options" dialog box on Windows Media Player 7
and are of 64 to 160 kbps.
Notes
•  If you check "Enable Personal Rights Management" on
the "CD Audio" tab in the "Options" dialog box when
recording a CD using Windows Media Player 7, the
music cannot be transferred to Network Walkman. To
enable the music transfer, remove the check mark when
recording the CD.
