Multimedia Printer series

Thank you for purchasing the Multimedia Printer series drive MP5125A (hereafter referred to as "the drive"). The drive allows you to play DVD-ROM/CD-ROM media, write to and play DVD+R/CD-R media, write to, play, and edit DVD+RW/CD-RW media that are rewritable.

In order to operate the drive connected with your computer, you need some writing software. For information about necessary items for connecting with a computer and about the software you use, refer to the documentation of the software.

The following marks indicate media that can be used with the drive.

A technology called JustLink

®

incorporated that overcomes buffer underrun problems

Buffer underrun errors that would occur when data transfer falls behind writing operation has been inevitable for CD-R/RW drives. JustLink ® , which we at Ricoh developed on our own, is a technology that predicts possible occurrences of buffer underrun errors in advance and automatically avoids them.

The MP5125A is the industry's first-ever drive that features JustLink ® . With this technology, the

MP5125A ensures stable writing operation even under circumstances where buffer underrun errors tend to occur with conventional drives.

Obey the following cautions when handling the drive or discs.

Cautions During Installation

Install the drive in accordance with the specifications. Be careful to avoid locations likely to cause vibration or shock.

Avoid locations where there is high humidity, excessive dust, or poor ventilation.

Avoid locations in direct sunlight, with severe changes in humidity, or places where there are extremely high or low temperature variations.

Don't use the drive near radio or television receivers. It may interfere with their reception.

Do not disassemble the drive. Dismantling the drive to attempt repairs or for other reasons is dangerous because the laser may radiate outside the unit.

Cautions During Use

DVD-R/RW (DVD hyphen R/RW)/DVD-RAM media cannot be used.

Don't suddenly move the drive from a cold place to a warm place, or suddenly raise the room temperature. Condensation may occur, causing abnormal operation.

Make sure to remove the media before moving the drive. The media may be damaged, causing data loss.

Be careful to prevent foreign objects such as liquids or metal from entering the drive.

Should by chance a foreign object enter the drive, please consult the dealer where the drive was purchased.

Don't use benzene or thinner to clean dirt from the drive. Don't allow chemicals such as insecticides to contact the drive. Use a soft cloth to wipe the drive, or moisten a cloth with neutral detergent diluted with water and use it to clean particularly dirty areas.

Don't cutoff the electric power while the drive is operating.

When connecting two E-IDE devices to the Primary or Secondary connectors, make sure that the two devices are not both configured as Master, or both as Slave. If they are both set the same, Windows may fail to run or recognize the drives.

The total length of the E-IDE cable should be less than 18 inches (about 45 cm).

Make sure the power to the host computer is turned OFF before connecting.

Never insert a damaged disc into the drive.

In wintertime, don't use a disc soon after bringing in from outdoors. Use it only after it has reached room temperature.

Cautions Concerning Disc Cleaning

Remove the media by pressing the eject button.

Use compressed air to clear dust from the media. (Spray the compressed air for about

5 seconds).

Check to see if there is dirt on the surface of the media. Be careful not to touch the media with the fingers when doing this.

(See Fig. 1)

After cleaning the media with compressed air, place it on the media tray and mount

it.

(See Fig. 2)

We suggest using dry air cleaner as compressed air for cleaning.

Other Cautions

When moving the equipment, make sure that the media has been removed from the drive.

When connecting connectors, make sure that the power is OFF. If the power is ON, there is a possibility of short circuit.

When not using the drive for a long period, dust may adhere to the disc tray. Before using the drive again, use dry air cleaner to remove the dust from the tray.

Do not use any commercially available cleaning kit, because such a kit may damage the drive.

The drive is a super-combination drive that integrates DVD+RW/+R and CD-RW capabilities. Capitalizing on Ricoh's expertise accumulated with existing CD-RW and

DVD-ROM combination drives, we have developed some new mechanisms to achieve incorporation of DVD+RW rewrite capabilities.

DVD writing has been made possible by tuning up a two-LD (laser diode) one-lens pick-up that has one laser diode for CD and another for DVD.

With our analog front-end processor LSI for controlling pick-up, seek, and servo mechanisms, as well as our digital controller LSI for controlling encoding/decoding, both of which are newly developed, 2.4x-speed DVD writing which requires even more precise control has been achieved.

The "radial-tilt correction mechanism" incorporated in the drive senses the disc warpage and inclination and thereby corrects the laser angle so that the laser is always directed toward the disc surface at the right angle. (It functions only when writing to or playing DVD.)

A high-precision stepping motor is incorporated. This enables precise seeking even on

DVD+RW/+R with a narrow track pitch, and achieved reduction of operating noise

As a CD-RW drive, it provide the performance of 12x CD-R write, 10x CD-RW rewrite, and 32x CD-ROM/R/RW read speeds.

As a DVD-ROM drive, it provides a performance of 8x read speed.

JustLink

®

A hard disk is normally installed as the Primary Master on the E-IDE (ATAPI) interface. Other E-IDE peripheral devices such as hard drives and CD-ROMs are then set accordingly.

Caution

If two peripheral devices with the same settings are both connected to the Primary or to the Secondary E-IDE bus, the host computer may fail to run, or may malfunction, so careful attention is necessary.

Make sure that the host computer is turned OFF when connecting or removing a jumper.

Must be connect the jumper in the vertical direction. If connected horizontally, the drive may malfunction or be damaged.
