1. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose
this appliance to rain or moisture.
2. Always check each disc for cracks before using it. If there are
cracks on the surfaces, especially around the border of the center hole, we recommend that you make a copy of the disc
immediately and then stop using it. If you continue using the
disc, it will probably develop more cracks and eventually cause
irreparable damage.
3. Do not use poor quality discs:
● From unknown sources
● Without any copyright
● Scratched or damaged in any way

device name is displayed.
The SAMSUNG device driver enables discs in the DVD-ROM drive to be read but
not recorded in an MS-DOS environment; the driver is located in the D driver folder
on the CD record utility disc.
Run the CD player supplied with Windows or your sound card. You can listen to
the CD by connecting headphones to the appropriate connector. If you have
installed the appropriate player, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player, you can
adjust the volume using the headphone volume control on the drive front panel.
Playing Video CDs
Set up and run the SOFT MPEG program.
Storing and Cleaning Your Discs
DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video
discs (such as movies). Currently, the motion picture industry has divided the
world into different regions or zones that correspond to the regional markets
into which the motion picture industry releases movies. Simply put, RPC codes
are placed on movies marketed throughout the world, based on the region of
the world in which they are being sold. These RPC codes help control and prevent pirating of new movies into other motion picture regions prior to their true
release dates within those markets.
The SD-610/612 DVD-ROM drive supports RPC phase II. In the RPC-2
mode, the local code can be changed by users. RPC-2 is selected by
default for the SD-610/612 DVD-ROM drive. You can change the region
code up to five times via an MPEG application.
Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you
wish to change the local code more than five times.
To ensure a long service life for your discs and drive, follow the precautions
below when storing and cleaning your discs.
1 Do not place a disc in direct sunlight.
2 Store a disc vertically in a well-ventilated and
stable location.
3 Do not write or attach a label on a disc.
4 Do not drop a disc or place heavy objects on it.
5 Do not touch the surface of a disc; hold it by
the edges.
6 To clean a disc, polish lightly from the inside
of the disc to the outside with a soft cotton cloth.
7 Do not leave the disc compartment open
when you are not using it.
