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.

movie skips or hangs during playback, clean the media. Most DVD video playback issues are media-
related and can be remedied by proper handling and care of media.

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.
