CD/DVD media is sensitive to dust and fingerprints. Carefully handle media by its edges only.
Try to avoid touching the read area (underside) of the disc as dirt and smears will degrade the disc
If the disc becomes dirty wipe it with a damp soft cloth. Avoid cleaning in a circular motion, but rather
from the inner side outward.
NOTE: High-speed drives spin the disc at a high rotational speed. If a disc has printing on only
half of the disc, or if there is a slight imbalance in the disc, the imbalance is greatly magnified by
the high speed, causing the drive to vibrate or produce a fan-like noise. These effects are
inherent in the high-speed technology and do not indicate a problem with the drive.
