Using the CD/DVD/COMBO Drive (optional)
Your computer may come with an optional CD-ROM drive, COMBO
drives, or DVD-ROM drives through the optional docking station. This
drive is usually configured as drive D.
The drive uses removable 5.25-inch silver CD-ROM discs, which look
like standard music CDs. It is an ideal medium to use for distributing
multimedia because of the huge amount of data that a disc can store.
A CD-ROM drive can read CD-ROMs, audio CDs, CD-R, and COMBO
disk. A CD-RW drive not only reads the above discs but also writes to
CD-R and CD-RW discs. A DVD-ROM drive can read DVD (Digital
Versatile Disc) discs in addition to the above discs.
1. When inserting a CD, do not use force.
2. Make sure the CD is correctly inserted into the tray, and then close the tray.
3. Do not leave the CD tray open. Also, avoid touching the lens in the tray with your
hand. If the lens becomes dirty, the CD-ROM may malfunction.
4. Do not wipe the lens with rough surface materials (such as paper towel).
Instead, use a cotton swab to gently wipe the lens.
FDA regulations require the following statement for all laser-based devices:
"Caution, Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than
those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure."
