The tray slides out of the unit. Place the media label side up with the reading and writing side down.
CAUTION Putting anything other than CD, CD-R or CD-RW media may damage the unit and void your warranty.
Emergency Eject Hole
In the event that a CD cannot be ejected with the Eject Button and no software is controlling the drive , an emergency eject operation will eject the CD tray. Insert a small metal poker, such as an unbent paperclip into the opening, until it presses against the manual eject mechanism. You will feel the mechanism eject the CD tray. Use this method only when the other method of ejecting a CD, the Eject Button, is not working.
