This section describes how to start the drive and eject a disc.

Starting the Drive

Press the eject button.
The tray comes out automatically.
Place a disc in the tray with its label side up.
Operating the Drive
When the drive is set up in vertical position, use the disc locks to

Disc locks
Gently push the tray or press the eject button to close the tray.

when it accepts the disc. The busy indicator lights up in amber

For subsequent drive operations, follow the instructions provided
with the CD authoring software you are using.
The busy indicator stays lit in amber if:
– the disc is not properly placed on the loading tray
– a malfunction occurs.
In either case, eject the disc and place it in the loading tray again
making sure that it sits properly in the tray. If doing this does not
solve the problem and the busy indicator still remains lit in amber,
consult your dealer or qualified service personnel.
The busy indicator also lights amber during audio play. However,
this is not a malfunction.
Caution: Do not forcibly close the disc drawer. Applying excessive
force may damage the loading mechanism. The tray's mechanism is
designed to operate with a "feather touch".
