Introduction

The TEAC CD-RW Drive can write to CD-R discs at a maximum of 8X speed, rewrite to CD-RW discs at 8X speed, and read CD-ROM discs at 32X speed. (It is also capable of operating at slower speeds, if preferred.) CD-R discs enable you to create audio or data discs for permanent archival storage. They cannot be overwritten. You can overwrite CD-Rewritable (CD-RW) discs, typically up to 1,000 times.

The TEAC CD-RW Drive is designed for use in IBM PC or compatible computers.

It features a 5.25-inch standard chassis and a powered tray for convenient disc loading.

Installing the CD-RW Drive

Installing the CD-RW Drive

This section explains how to install the TEAC CD-RW Drive into an IBM PC or compatible personal computer. Follow the steps below and refer to your computer documentation for information specific to your system.

1.

Turn off the power to the computer system and any external devices connected to it.

2.

Touch the exposed metal frame of the computer to ground yourself.

This will prevent damage to the computer or CD-RW drive that may be caused by a discharge of static electricity.

3.

Remove your computer’s cover, faceplate, or 5.25-inch bay cover, as well as mounting clips, screws, and retaining brackets.

Note: If you have a SCSI CD-ROM drive or no IDE CD-ROM/DVD drive installed in your system, continue with Step 4. If you have an IDE CD-ROM/

DVD drive installed in your system, skip step 4 and continue with Step 5.

4.

If you have a SCSI CD-ROM drive or no IDE CD-ROM/DVD drive installed on your system, do the following:

4a) Confirm that the jumper on the rear panel of the CD-RW drive is configured to its default setting of Master.

4b) Slide the CD-RW drive into the empty 5.25-inch drive bay. Install the CD-

RW drive in your personal computer in a horizontal orientation (within ±10˚ of horizontal). The eject button should be located on the right side of the unit. Secure the drive using 3x5mm mounting screws.

Warning: Do not use mounting screws longer than 3x5mm to secure the

CD-RW drive or you may damage the unit.

4c) Locate the secondary IDE connector on your system’s motherboard and connect one end of the IDE interface cable.

Be certain to connect Pin-1 of the interface cable to Pin-1 on the secondary

IDE connector on the motherboard. (Pin-1 on interface cable is usually designated by a color strip along one edge of the cable. Also, the interface ribbon cable connector may feature a tab on one side. Insert the cable so that the tab aligns with the notch on the interface connector. Do not use excessive force while trying to insert the cable into position).

4e) Connect one end of an analog audio cable to the analog audio connector on the rear panel of the CD-RW drive and connect the opposite end to your sound card. (Go to Step 6.)

5.

If you have an IDE CD-ROM/DVD drive installed on your system, do the following:

Typically, your IDE CD-ROM/DVD drive is connected to the secondary IDE motherboard connector as a Master. In such cases, it is strongly recommended that you connect the CD-RW drive as a Slave drive to the same cable that currently hosts your CD-ROM/DVD drive.

5a) Set the jumper on the rear panel of the CD-RW drive to Slave.

5b) Slide the CD-RW drive into the empty 5.25-inch drive bay. Install the CD-

RW drive in your personal computer in a horizontal orientation (within ±10˚ of horizontal). The eject button should be located on the right side of the unit. Secure the drive using 3x5mm mounting screws.

Warning: Do not use mounting screws longer than 3x5mm to secure the

CD-RW drive or you may damage the unit.

5c) Connect the CD-RW to the vacant middle connector on your CD-ROM/

DVD interface cable. (If your original cable does not have an available middle connector, you will need to acquire and install a standard IDE cable with three connectors.)

5d) Your CD-ROM/DVD drive probably uses an audio cable that is connected to the computer’s sound card. Therefore, there is no need to connect an audio cable to your CD-RW drive. An audio cable is not necessary for recording audio CDs.

6.

Connect the power cable to the power connector on the rear panel of the

CD-RW drive.

Insert the power cable plug in the correct orientation into the power connector.

The plug is shaped so that it can be easily inserted in only one orientation; do not force the plug into the connector. The +5v terminal is on the left as you face the rear of the panel; the +12v terminal is on the right. The two center terminals are ground terminals.

Recommended Software

7.

Re-install your computer’s cover, faceplate, or bay cover.

8.

Start your system.

Notes:

• The IDE CD-RW drive is a true Plug-N-Play device; therefore, it will be detected automatically by Windows 95/98/Me/2000-Professional. There is no need to install any drivers.

• Windows NT 4.0 Users:

Windows NT 4.0 does not support the Plug-N-Play feature. Therefore, confirm that the IDE CD-ROM DRIVE ATAPI version 1.2 driver is installed. If not, open the Control Panel, double click “SCSI Adapters,” click the “Drivers” tab, then click the “Add” button. At the “Select a SCSI Adapter Option” window, select “IDE CD-ROM DRIVE (ATAPI Ver 1.2).” Click “Install” and follow the instructions on screen.

• The drive is recognized by the operating system as a typical CD-ROM drive.

Once you confirm that you can read (play) data discs from the CD-RW drive, install the premastering software to enable recording to CD-R and CD-RW discs.

• The premastering software is to be purchased separately.

Recommended Software

Before you can record data onto CD-R or CD-RW discs using your TEAC CD-RW

Drive, you must first install pre-mastering or packet-writing software onto your computer’s hard disk. TEAC recommends the following applications for Windows

95/98/Me/2000-Professional and NT:

Adaptec Easy CD Creator, Version 4.02d or higher: A full-featured premastering software application that enables you to create audio CDs and data

CDs.

Adaptec DirectCD, Version 3.01d or higher: A “drag & drop” software application that allows you to read and write to your CD-RW as if it were a standard floppy or removable hard drive. It also provides the tools necessary to format the media.

Note: The above mentioned software packages are part of the Easy CD Creator

Deluxe Software Suite from Adaptec. Please ensure the appropriate version is purchased.

For more information, refer to the documentation that accompanies the software.
