Drive Operation:

Inserting a Disc

• Press the eject button. The disc tray will be ejected.

• Place the disc in the center of the tray with the label side facing up.

• Push disc onto hub until secure.

• Push the disc tray by hand and completely close.

Removing a Disc

• Press the eject button. The disc tray will be ejected.

NOTE: During some drive activities, the drive will not allow the tray to open even when the eject button is pressed.

Usage Guidelines

• Do not place objects on the disc tray.

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

• Keep the disc tray closed when the drive is not in use.

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 Eject

The procedure described below can be used to remove a disc from the drive if the eject button is disabled by software or if a power failure occurs.

1.

Turn the computer off.

2.

Insert a small diameter rod or a stiff wire (a straightened paper clip about 1.2 mm [0.047 in] in diameter) into the emergency eject hole and push firmly.

3.

The disc tray is ejected by about 10 mm (0.39 in). Pull the disc tray out.

NOTE: Do not insert more than 50 mm (1.9 in) in depth.

Inserting more than 50 mm (1.9 in) may damage the drive.

Cleaning Media

• If dust or fingerprints get on the disc, wipe it with a soft cloth from the center to the edge.

CAUTION: Do not use benzene, paint thinner, record cleaner, solvent or static repellent. This can damage the disc.

Safety Instructions

• Do not move the drive suddenly from a cold place to warm one. Condensation may cause abnormal operation.

• Make sure to remove the disc before moving the drive to prevent the possible damage to the disc.
