Option Diskette is not required for Windows 2000.
Using the CD-ROM drive audio player
functions
There are two ways to use the CD-ROM drive to play audio CDs. You can use the
Microsoft Windows CD Player, with which you can control the CD playback on your
computer screen. You can also use the two audio control buttons on the front of the
CD-ROM drive.
Note: You must close the Microsoft Windows CD Player in order to use the control
buttons on the front of the CD-ROM drive. The buttons will not work while the
Microsoft Windows CD Player is running.
Although there are only two control buttons on the front of the CD-ROM drive, you
can use those two buttons to perform all the major functions of a normal CD player.
Refer to the following table to determine what sequence of actions you need to take in
order to perform each function.

The device driver is now uninstalled. Your computer will not recognize the CD-ROM
drive when it is connected to the computer unless you reinstall the device driver.
Disconnecting and reconnecting the CD-ROM
drive
Hot plugging is supported on the connection between the USB cable and your
computer. This means that the CD-ROM drive USB cable can be disconnected from
and reconnected to your computer whether the computer is on or off.
Attention
The connection between the USB cable and the CD-ROM drive itself does not
support hot plugging. If you disconnect the USB cable from the CD-ROM drive
while the USB cable is attached to your computer, it might cause damage to the
CD-ROM drive.
To avoid damaging the CD-ROM drive, turn off the CD-ROM drive before
disconnecting the USB cable from your computer. To disconnect the CD-ROM drive
from the computer, unplug the USB cable from the computer. To reconnect the
CD-ROM drive, reconnect the USB cable to the computer.
Attention
Do not disconnect and reconnect the USB cable in rapid succession or the
CD-ROM drive might not load properly. After disconnecting the USB cable, wait
at least 10 to 20 seconds, or until the hourglass icon stops displaying, before
reconnecting the USB cable.
