Loading Tray

Load disc using tray.

Busy Indicator

When you install a disc into the DVD-ROM drive, the BUSY light flashes slowly as it attempts to locate the disc. One of the following will occur:

• BUSY light goes out. The DVD-ROM drive is ready to read data from the disc.

• BUSY light flashes slowly. The disc may be dirty.

• BUSY light remains ON. The DVD-ROM is accessing data.

• BUSY light remains ON indefinitely. The DVD-ROM is experiencing an error



The Eject button is used to open the disc tray so you can install or remove a disc.


Eject Hole

The emergency eject hole is to be used only when the Loading Tray will not open when

Eject button is pressed.


The following steps must be performed to properly install your drive:

• Set DVD-ROM Drive Jumper Settings:

SCSI ID, Parity, Termination, 512/2K, Power

• Connect Audio Cable

• Attach SCSI Interface Cable

• Attach Power Cable

• Daisy-Chaining SCSI Drives (if applicable)

• Mount Drive

Jumper Settings

A block of mode select jumpers are located on the rear of the DVD-ROM. If a jumper covers both pins on the jumper block, it is ON; if there is no jumper or only one of the pins is covered, the jumper is

OFF. The jumper settings include SCSI ID, Parity,

Termination, Block Selectability, Test and Power


Figure 2. Jumper Block

Figure 1. Jumper Location

SCSI ID - All SCSI devices attached to your computer are assigned a SCSI-ID number from 0 to

7. Your DVD-ROMs SCSI ID must be set so that its

ID number does not conflict with any other devices

SCSI-ID in your system. In most cases, your DVD-

ROM will be set to SCSI ID 4 at the factory. Also note that your SCSI interface card in most cases has a SCSI ID of 7. This following chart (figure 3) shows the jumper settings for the eight possible ID numbers

Figure 3. SCSI ID Examples

Parity - In the OFF mode, the parity bit check function on the SCSI data bus is activated which enhances data bus reliability. Therefore, the jumper should remain in the OFF mode.


Terminator ON/OFF - This jumper turns termination power ON or OFF. If you are connecting more than one SCSI device to your system, and the DVD-ROM is not at the end of the chain, then terminator jumper is not required.

512/2K (Block Size Selectability) - This jumper is used to select default block size. When the jumper is present, the default block size equals 512Bytes, when the jumper is not present, the default block size is

2048Bytes. This is effective for CD media only, not DVD media.

Test - This setting selects the drive operation between normal CD-ROM and CD-Audio player mode.

When jumper is set to ON position, commands from the host computer are ignored. This jumper is for test purposes only and should be set to OFF for proper CD-ROM function.

Power Supply - Toshiba SCSI DVD-ROM drives can supply power to other equipment on the SCSI

BUS. When the jumper is ON, the drive will supply termination power. If you are not sure if any other device supplies termination power, it is fine to leave the jumper ON.

Placing DVD-ROM Drive inside your Computer

Now that you have set the jumpers, you are ready to install your DVD-ROM drive inside your computer.

Important Note: Disconnect power from your computer system before beginning installation.

Remove computer cover and faceplate if required. Refer to your computer systems manual for removal information. If the DVD-ROM drive is replacing a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, remove drive presently installed in your system.

Your Toshiba DVD-ROM drive can be placed in any free half-height drive slot at the front of your computer. (It can be mounted horizontally or vertically.)

Carefully start sliding the DVD-ROM drive into the opening with the disc tray facing the front of the computer. Before you push the drive all the way in you will need to connect the IDE BUS cable, Audio cable and the Power cable on the back of the drive.

Connecting Cables

SCSI Interface Cable (not supplied with drive) - The internal SCSI interface cable is connect to your

SCSI host adapter card and fits into the socket on the back of your DVD-ROM. The stripe or red-colored side of the ribbon cable connects to pin 1 of the drive's SCSI connector which is found next to the drive's power connector. Carefully push the SCSI connector into the socket, making sure it fits snugly

Power Cable - Connect an internal computer power supply cable to the power socket at the back of the DVD-

ROM drive. One side of the plug has chamfered edges, so the power connector fits only one way. Push plug completely into the socket making sure the plug fits correctly.

Figure 4.Installing Power Cable


Audio Cable (optional) - If you have a sound card and speakers, and would like to play audio CDs on your computer, you will need to install a CD/DVD audio cable.

Toshiba's DVD-ROM drives use a standard 4-pin audio cable that can be purchased from most local computer suppliers. The sound cable connects to your sound card at one end and the other end connects to the digital audio connector at the left rear of the DVD-ROM drive

(see DVD-ROM drive Back Panel photo for location).

Refer to the instructions that came with your sound card for details on any sound-driver software required.

Figure 5.Installing Audio Cable

Daisy-Chaining - If the DVD-ROM you are installing is one of two or more SCSI devices you are connecting to your system, you will need to use a custom built SCSI interface cable. Remember that the terminator jumper on the DVD-ROM drive must have the jumper installed when the drive is the last device in the chain.

Figure 6. Daisy-Chaining Multiple Drives


Completing Installation

After you have connected all the necessary cables, push the DVD-ROM drive completely into the computers drive slot. Mount drive per your computers instructions. The screw length should not exceed

30.5mm (measured from outside surface of side or bottom of drive to tip of screw). Replace computer cover and all outer screws.

Figure 7.Mounting Illustration

Software Driver - Toshiba's optical drives do not require any unique device drivers for Windows

'95/'98/2000/Me/XP/NT. After installing your drive and re-booting, your system should recognize your drive. Windows '95/'98/2000/Me/XP/NT Operating Systems support all Toshiba optical drives natively If you prefer using DOS, download the DOS ATAPI driver from our web site.



Drive Operation

Inserting a Disc - Horizontally

To insert a disc into a drive that is mounted horizontally, perform the following steps:

Figure 1.Inserting Disc

1. Open the drive's Loading tray by pressing the Eject Button.

2. Place disc into drive's Loading tray

3. Press Eject button again or gently push on the open disc tray. Tray will automatically close.

Inserting a Disc - Vertically

To insert a disc in a drive that is mounted vertically, perform the following steps:

1. Locate sliding disc holders (4 locations) on drive's Loading Tray.

2. Position the disc behind the disc holders

3. Close the drive by gently pushing in the tray or pressing the eject button.

Figure 2.Inserting Disc Vertically


Removing a Disc

To remove a disc from the DVD-ROM drive, perform the following steps:

1. Open the Loading Tray by pressing the Eject Button.

2. Grasp disc by edges, and lift out of loading tray.

3. Press Eject Button again to close Loading Tray.

Usage Guidelines

• Keep the disc tray closed when not using the DVD-ROM Drive.

• Do not press down on the disc tray when opening or closing it.

• Do not place objects on the disc tray.

• Never use a damaged, broken, or deformed disc.

• Do not press the Open/Close button while the drive is playing a DVD movie or accessing a disc.

To stop a DVD movie, click Stop button in the DVD player application program.

NOTE: High-speed drives spin the disc at a high rotational speed. If a disc has printing on only half of the disc, or if there is a slight imbalance in the disc, the imbalance is greatly magnified by the high speed, causing the drive to vibrate or produce a fan-like noise. These effects are inherent in the high-speed technology and do not indicate a problem with the drive.

Emergency Ejection

CAUTION: The following procedure is intended only as a last resort when pressing the

eject button fails to open the Loading Tray

1. Turn computer power OFF by properly shutting down system.

2. Insert a solid bar (i.e. large paper clip) into Emergency Eject hole and push as shown in the picture below

3. DVD tray will open/eject.


Figure 3.Using Emergency Eject

This procedure cannot be repeated without cycling the DVD-ROMs (computer's) power.

After the media is removed and the loading tray is closed, the tray will not reopen without first turning the power ON/OFF.

NOTE: Use a bar that is less than 1.5 mm in diameter.

Do not insert more than 50mm in depth.

Inserting more than 50mm may damage the DVD-ROM drive.

Handling Media

DVD media is sensitive to dust and fingerprints. Carefully handle media by its edges only. If a DVD movie skips or hangs during playback, clean the media. Most DVD video playback issues are media-related and can be remedied by proper handling and care of media.

Cleaning Media

Try to avoid touching the read area (underside) of the disc as dirt and smears will degrade the disc accessing speed.

If the disc becomes dirty wipe it with a damp soft cloth. Avoid cleaning in a circular motion, but rather from the inner side outward.
