poor quality discs, as this may cause damage to
your drive.
2. Check the clear plastic on the center of the disc,
cracks here are the main cause of disc crush.
3. Do not play CDs which are a non-standard
(I.e. non-circular)shape, such as heart shaped
discs, or discs in the shape of a business card.
How can you keep your discs from becoming
damaged?
1. When not in use, remove discs from the drive.
2. Keep discs in the original packaging and out of
direct sunlight and away from heat sources.
Excessive vibration or a sudden jolt to the drive during
operation may cause a malfunction.
Avoid exposing the drive to sudden changes in
temperature as it may cause condensation to form
inside the drive.
