Inserting a Disc

•  Insert the disc, label-side up, about quarter-way into the drive slot till a slight 

 

resistance is felt.

•  Gently push the disc further into the drive slot until the drive mechanism is heard 

to engage and draw in the disc.

NOTE:

 8 cm discs are not supported for Slot load drive.

Removing a Disc

• Select the Eject Command on OS/Applications, then the drive will eject the disc.

• Remove the disc.

Usage Guidelines

• Never use a damaged, broken, scratched, or deformed disc.

• Keeps the disc unloaded when not using the drive.

NOTES : 

 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.

Cleaning Media

If dust or fingerprints get on the disc, wipe it with a soft cloth 

 

from the center to the edge.

CAUTION:  

Do not use benzene, paint thinner, record cleaner, solvent, or 

static repellent. This can damage the disc.

Cleaning the Drive

Cleaning the inside of the drive is not recommended.

Troubleshooting

Please refer to the Introduction section to determine if the drive in your system 

is a slim device.

Symptoms and Solutions

Solutions

1-1. Turn off the system, remove the drive, and re-insert back 

to the system.

2-1. If the disc is dirty (fingerprints, etc.), clean it with a 

 

non-abrasive cloth from the disc center hole to the outside.
2-2. If the disc is scratched and warped, do not insert it into 

the drive.

2-3. If the disc is inserted upside-down, re-insert it in the 

proper direction.
2-4. Check to see that the necessary software applications are 

installed correctly.

3-1. This drive only supports discs with the formats indicated 

in the Specifications section. It cannot read the data on discs 

with other formats. Check the disc’s format.

4-1. The CD player application may need to be set to “Digital.” 

In Windows Media Player, for example, from the menu bar, 

click on “Tools,” then “Options,” and then click on the “Device” 

tab. Select the drive and click on the “Properties” button. Set 

the playback mode to “Digital.”
5-1. Ensure disc is clean and free of scratches.
5-2. Media from different manufacturers or purchased at 

 

different times will record at different speeds. The drive will 

adjust the available recording speeds to achieve the highest 

write quality.
6-1. Check to see that the system is powered up.
6-2. If the system is capable of booting into an operating 

system, attempt to issue an eject command from within the 

operating system.

Symptoms

1.  Drive is not  

recognized by 

 

system.

2.  Cannot read or play 

disc.

3.  Certain types of disc 

do not play.

Solutions

7-1. Is the disc loaded in the drive with the read/write surface 

facing the right direction? The label should be up. If a disc 

does not have a label, the disc code on the inner side of the 

disc should be properly oriented for reading when looking from 

the top of the disc.

7-2. CD-R, DVD+R, DVD-R, and BD-R discs cannot be 

 

re-written.

7-3. Please check the type of disc that is being used. Please 

refer to Specifications section to ensure that the disc type is 

supported by this drive. 
7-4. Is there enough free space on the writable disc?
7-5. Did a screen saver or other application operate while  

writing to the disc? If so, try again with the application turned 

off.
8-1. Check to see that the system is powered up.
8-2. Check whether there is already a disc in the drive.  

If so, select the Eject Command on OS/Applications to eject 

the disc, then load the intended disc.

8-3. Note that this drive only supports 12cm discs.
