Avoid placing the drive in a location subject to:
– high humidity
– high temperature
– excessive dust
– mechanical vibration
– direct sunlight
The drive can be used in either a horizontal or vertical position.
Do not force the power cable. It is keyed to protect the drive.
Do not move the drive when it is in use. Doing so may cause data error
and damage the optical pick-up.
Avoid exposing the drive to sudden changes in temperature as
condensation may form on the lens inside the drive. Should the
surrounding temperature suddenly rise while the drive is turned on, stop
using the drive and leave the power on at least one hour before
operating it or turning it off. Operating the drive immediately after a
sudden increase in temperature may result in a malfunction.
Close the disc drawer before moving the drive.
Keep the original packing materials. When you need to ship the drive to
another location, repacking it in its original container will help you
transport it safely.
