The 2.6 GB and 4.7 GB versions are single-sided. The 9.4 GB versions are double-sided. To access the data
on both sides of the media, you must remove the media from the drive, turn it over, and re-insert it into
the drive.

DVD-RAM media is available in bare-disc or cartridge form. To use cartridge media in your Multi-Burner
Plus, you must first remove the disc from the cartridge.
Note: Media in Type 1 cartridges is not removable and cannot be used in this drive. All other cartridge
types (2-9) are removable and can be used in your Multi-Burner Plus drive.
