CD-ROM Drive and Hard Drive Option
CD Cleaning
The CD-ROM drive is available for both Ultra 5 and Ultra 10 workstation
systems. A second hard drive is available as an optional storage device for
the Ultra 10 only. The Ultra 10 second hard drive is located at the front end
of the chassis.
If your CD-ROM drive cannot read a CD, the cause may be a dirty CD.
Follow these guidelines to clean a CD:
Installing Your CD-ROM and Hard Drive
Refer to the documentation that came with your Ultra 5 and Ultra 10
system. Locate the sections describing detailed installation procedures in
your Ultra 5 and Ultra 10 ShowMe™ How™ multimedia and the Sun Ultra
5/10 Service Manual (Sun AnswerBook™).
Refer to the Solaris Handbook for SMCC Peripherals that corresponds to your
operating system for software tasks related to your drive installation. The
handbook describes how to shut down the system before installation and
how to configure the system after installing your CD-ROM and hard drive.
Ensure that the CD-ROM drive and Ultra 10 second hard drive are
properly cabled. The EIDE interface cable is a ribbon cable with connectors
clearly marked to indicate which connector should be connected to which
device or host. On the Ultra 5 and Ultra 10 systems, the EIDE cable
connects from the CD-ROM drive to the J14 motherboard connector. The
audio cable connects from the CD-ROM to the J9 connector (between
power supply connector and audio connector). For the second hard drive
option on the Ultra 10 system, the EIDE cable connects from the hard drive
(“slave” connector) to the primary channel J15 motherboard connector.

Make sure CDs are at room temperature before using them.
Store CDs in storage boxes so that they remain clean and free of dust.
Inserting a CD Into the Drive
1. After the system is powered on, push the eject button to open the
drive tray.
You may need to unmount the CD before manually ejecting it. You can
also eject the CD by using software commands. Refer to the peripherals
handbook that corresponds with your operating system.
2. Place the CD (label side up) into the tray.
Ensure that the CD is properly set into the recessed area of the tray.
3. If the drive is being installed in a vertical position, slide the two
bottom tabs on the tray toward each other to hold the CD.
Ejecting a CD
If the motorized eject mechanism does not work, use a thin, stiff wire (such
as a paper clip) to eject the CD.
