Do Not Look Into the CD/DVD Drive
Looking directly at the internal laser light source
may result in damage to eyesight.
<Only for model with CD/DVD Drive>
Do Not Use Discs That Are Cracked or Deformed
Because the discs rotate at high speeds, damaged discs may break apart causing injury.
• Discs that are not round and discs that have
been repaired using adhesives are similarly
dangerous, and so should not be used.
●●Using this product continuously in a hot en-
vironment will shorten the product life. Avoid
use in these types of environments.

<Only for model with CD/DVD Drive>
„„Drive Handling Care
●●Do not expose the drive to excessive smoke that
may leave a residue, e.g., oil smoke, or tobacco
smoke. Doing so can shorten the life of the drive
We recommend cleaning the drive lens with an
air puffer used for camera lenses.
(Do not use any spray-type of lens cleaning products.)
When opening/closing the tray
When the computer is on, use the eject button
( page 11) or eject through Windows.
When inserting or removing a disc, be careful
not to touch the lens and other parts of the laser
●●Do not leave the tray open and do not touch the
lens and other parts of the laser pickup.
The laser pickup and disc can become dusty in
some conditions. It may cause malfunction in
reading or writing.
Do not apply excessive force to the tray in the
open position.
Never insert a foreign object such as a paper clip
into the drive.
Doing so may cause malfunction.
Do not place items other than discs on the tray.
To clean discs
<For read-only discs>
Wipe discs with a dry, soft cloth from the center
toward the edge.
If discs get very dirty, wipe with a moist, soft cloth
from the center toward the edge, then wipe again
with a dry cloth to take up remaining moisture.
While the drive is being accessed
Do not open the tray or move the cradle while the
drive is being accessed.
Doing so could cause the disc to shift position
and this may damage the disc, or cause the drive
to malfunction.
In addition, after running an application involving access to a disc, close the application before
opening the tray or removing the disc.
<Only for model with CD/DVD Drive>
„„Disc Handling Care
●●Before using a disc, carefully read the operating/
handling instructions and package of the disc.
●●If the discs are not handled appropriately, they
may become dirty or scratched. Furthermore the
writing speed may get slower and the data may
not be correctly written on or read from the disc.
Other damage may cause a drive failure.
Note the following precautions.
• Do not touch the disc surface (the side with no
• Keep the disc surface clean and free from dirt,
dust, fingerprints and scratches.
• Do not write on the surface of the disc with a
ballpoint pen or other writing instrument.
• Do not attach stickers to discs.
• Do not drop, bend, or place heavy objects on
top of discs.
• Do not place or store discs in locations exposed
to heat, direct sunlight, humidity or dust.
• If a disc is brought from a cold to a warm location, condensation may form on the disc.
For read-only discs, wipe off the condensation
using a soft, dry, lint-free cloth before using the
disc. For recordable/rewritable discs, wait until
the condensation dries.
• When not using discs, keep them in their protective cases or cartridges.
<For recordable/rewritable discs>
Use the recordable/rewritable disc cleaner to
clean these discs.
Do not use a cloth, CD cleaners or any other such
cleaners under any circumstances.

Data transfer speeds indicate values measured by Panasonic Corporation. The data transfer rate of DVD per 1X
speed is 1,350 KB/s. The data transfer rate of CD per 1X speed is 150 KB/s.
Performance of CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW, +R, +R DL, and +RW cannot be
guaranteed depending on writing status and recording format. Also, some data cannot be played back depending
on the disc, settings, and environment being used.
If an unbalanced disc (e.g., a disc with which the balance has been displaced from the center) is inserted, the
speed may become slower if there are large vibrations while the disc is rotating.
Only non-cartridge type or removable cartridge type can be used.
DVD-R is compatible with 4.7 GB (for General) playback. DVD-R (for Authoring) playback is compatible with discs
recorded using Disc-at-Once recording.
Depending on the disc, the writing speed may become slower.
1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Your operating system or some application software will report as fewer GB.
