– excessive dust
– direct sunlight

Care of Discs

Only hold disc by its edge. Do not touch the record surface.
Wipe CD-ROM disc with optional CD cleaner to clean it.
Do not wipe CD-R discs before recording data. To avoid scratching

Operating the Drive

Assure application software is installed before using the CD-R drive.

Starting Up

Turn on the power supply.
Insert caddy into drive slot with disc label facing up. Push gently
until auto-load mechanism pulls caddy into drive.
When loading a caddy, do not attempt to overpower the auto-load.
As the drive begins reading the Table of Contents (TOC) data, the busy
indicator lights amber and remains illuminated until read is completed.
When the busy indicator changes to green the drive is ready to receive
commands, data may be retrieved from the disc. After loading a disc, it
takes a moment for the drive to become ready while Program Memory
Area is read. From this point, follow instructions provided with the
application software.
Drive will not permit caddy insertion if:
– PREVENT/ALLOW option in jumper block is set to OFF.
– Host computer is set to PREVENT mode via software.
Busy indicator on drive continues to light amber if:
– Disc is not properly inserted or a malfunction occurs.
In such a case, eject the caddy and reinsert it properly. Should the light
remain amber, consult dealer or qualified service point.
During audio play the busy indicator remains amber, this is normal.
