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.
The Discs in this unit operate at a very high speed!
DO NOT use damaged, cracked or warped discs. The drive's optical unit
may be damaged if they break.
DO NOT use non-standard discs. NON-standard discs may not play or
store data properly.
Non-standard discs are any discs that are not the standard 12 cm CD
type discs. This includes 8 cm discs, Sony Walkman™ discs, non-circular
discs including promotional, business card discs, and other unusual
This drive has a feature that allows the CD to be ejected manually if nec-
essary 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.
