Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.

Before you start
â¢ When naming MP3 files, add the corresponding file name extension (.mp3). Files are played according to the file extension. To prevent noise and malfunctions, do not use these extensions for other kinds of files. â¢ This player can recognize up to 999 files (MP3/JPEG) and up to 499 folders. If a disc exceeds these limits, only files and folders up to these limits will be playable. Files and folders are read/displayed in alphabetical order. Note that if the file structure is very complex, you may not be able to read/play all files on the disc. â¢ Folder and track names (excluding the file extension) are displayed. â¢ There are many different recording bitrates available to encode MP3 files. This unit was designed to be compatible with all of them. Audio encoded at 128Kbps should sound close to regular CD Audio quality. This player will play lower bit-rate files, but please note that the sound quality becomes noticeably worse at lower bit-rates.
JPEG file compatibility
â¢ Baseline JPEG and EXIF 2.1* still image files up to 8 mega-pixels are supported (maximum vertical and horizontal resolution is 5120 pixels). (*File format used by digital still cameras) â¢ The CD-ROM used to compile your JPEG files must be ISO 9660 Level 1 or 2 compliant. CD physical format: Mode1, Mode2 XA Form1. Romeo and Joliet file systems are both compatible with this player. â¢ This player only displays files that are named with the file extension .jpg or .JPG.
