How to Use the Discs
When using CD-ROM discs, CD-R discs or CD-RW discs, don't
attach any stickers or labels to the discs. Using discs with them
attached not only causes read and write errors, but data on the disc
may be lost due to damage to the disc itself.
This drive has a function that allows the CD to be ejected manually
if this becomes necessary in an emergency, such as failure of the
drive or a power outage.
NOTE: Don't use this feature except in an emergency.
1) Turn the power to OFF.
2) Poke a fine-tipped object (such as a straightened heavy duty
paper clip) into the small hole above the eject button. The front
door will pop open and the disk tray will come partway out.
3) Pull the front door to open it all the way, then grip the disc tray
between thumb and forefinger and gently pull it straight out.
NOTE: This feature is a last measure to be used only in an
emergency. Using it excessively will cause malfunction.
* If you cannot get a good grip on the disc tray with your fingers, use
a steel binder clip or spring clamp to pull it out.
