The DVD-ROM is accessing data. BUSY light remains ON indefinitely. The DVD-ROM is experiencing an errorEjectButtonThe Eject button is used to open the disc tray so you can install or remove a disc.EmergencyEject HoleThe emergency eject hole is to be used only when the Loading Tray will not open whenEject button is pressed.

SETUP – SD-M1612 DVD-ROMThe following steps must be performed to properly install your drive: Set Drive Jumper Settings Connect Audio Cable (optional) Attach IDE BUS Cable Attach Power Cable Mount DriveJumper SettingsThe mode select jumpers are 6 straight angle pins located on the rear of the DVD-ROM drive.By placing a jumper on the pins, you can select the following functions:CSSLMADrive is configured using host interface signal CSELConfigures drive as SlaveConfigures drive as Master (default mode)Figure 1.Mode Select JumperIn most installations, jumper should remain in the MA position (factory default). It is recommended thatyou install your DVD-ROM drive only on the secondary IDE BUS. If you are installing on primary IDEBUS, your hard drive would then be the Master, and you should set your DVD-ROM drive to the Slaveposition (SL)Figure 2.Jumper Locations3

Placing DVD-ROM Drive inside your ComputerNow that you have set the jumpers, you are ready to install your DVD-ROM drive inside your computer.Important Note: Disconnect power from your computer system before beginning installation.Remove computer cover and faceplate if required. Refer to your computer systems manual for removalinformation. If the DVD-ROM drive is replacing a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, remove drive presentlyinstalled in your system.Your Toshiba DVD-ROM drive can be placed in any free half-height drive slot at the front of yourcomputer. (It can be mounted horizontally or vertically.)Carefully start sliding the DVD-ROM drive into the opening with the disc tray facing the front of thecomputer. Before you push the drive all the way in you will need to connect the IDE BUS cable, Audiocable and the Power cable on the back of the drive.Connecting CablesIDE BUS Cable (not supplied with drive) - Your computer system should have a primary and secondaryIDE BUS, cable with your Hard Drive most likely being the Master on the primary BUS. Connect BUScable as follows, assuring that pin 1 of cable (side with red stripe) is connected to pin 1 of the DVD-ROMdrive's interface connector:If you are replacing your CD-ROM or DVD:connect DVD-ROM drive to the BUS Cable connectorthat the CD-ROM or DVD was connected to.If DVD-ROM drive is not replacing a CD-ROM/DVD or isan addition to a CD-ROM/DVD:connect DVD-ROM drive to an open connector on thesecondary IDE BUS cable (not supplied with drive).If DVD-ROM drive is to be slave on Primary BUS:connect DVD-ROM drive to open connector on theprimary IDE BUS cable (not supplied with drive).Figure 3.Installing BUS CablePower Cable - Connect an internal computer powersupply cable to the power socket at the back of theDVD-ROM drive. One side of the plug has chamferededges, so the power connector fits only one way. Pushplug completely into the socket making sure the plug fitscorrectly.Figure 4.Installing Power Cable4

Audio Cable (optional) - If you have a sound card andspeakers, and would like to play audio CDs on yourcomputer, you will need to install a CD/DVD audio cable.Toshiba's DVD-ROM drives use a standard 4-pin audiocable that can be purchased from most local computersuppliers. The sound cable connects to your sound cardat one end and the other end connects to the digitalaudio connector at the left rear of the DVD-ROM drive(see DVD-ROM drive Back Panel photo for location).Refer to the instructions that came with your sound cardfor details on any sound-driver software required.Figure 5.Installing Audio CableCompleting InstallationAfter you have connected all the necessary cables,push the DVD-ROM drive completely into thecomputers drive slot. Mount drive per your computersinstructions. The screw length should not exceed30.5mm (measured from outside surface of side orbottom of drive to tip of screw). Replace computercover and all outer screws.Figure 6.Mounting IllustrationSoftware Driver - Toshiba's optical drives do not require any unique device drivers for Windows'95/'98/2000/Me/XP/NT. After installing your drive and re-booting, your system should recognize yourdrive. Windows '95/'98/2000/Me/XP/NT Operating Systems support all Toshiba optical drives natively Ifyou prefer using DOS, download the DOS ATAPI driver from our web site.5

USING THE DVD DVD-ROM Drive – SD-M1612Drive OperationInserting a Disc - HorizontallyTo insert a disc into a drive that is mounted horizontally, perform the following steps:Figure 1.Inserting Disc1. Open the drive's Loading tray by pressing the Eject Button.2. Place disc into drive's Loading tray3. Press Eject button again or gently push on the open disc tray. Tray will automatically close.Inserting a Disc - VerticallyTo insert a disc in a drive that is mounted vertically, perform the following steps:1. Locate sliding disc holders (4 locations) on drive's Loading Tray.2. Position the disc behind the disc holders3. Close the drive by gently pushing in the tray or pressing the eject button.Figure 2.Inserting Disc Vertically6

Removing a DiscTo remove a disc from the DVD-ROM drive, perform the following steps:1. Open the Loading Tray by pressing the Eject Button.2. Grasp disc by edges, and lift out of loading tray.3. Press Eject Button again to close Loading Tray.Usage Guidelines Keep the disc tray closed when not using the DVD-ROM Drive.Do not press down on the disc tray when opening or closing it.Do not place objects on the disc tray.Never use a damaged, broken, or deformed disc.Do not press the Open/Close button while the drive is playing a DVD movie or accessing a disc.To stop a DVD movie, click Stop button in the DVD player application program.NOTE: High-speed drives spin the disc at a high rotational speed. If a disc has printing on only half of thedisc, 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-speedtechnology and do not indicate a problem with the drive.Emergency EjectionCAUTION: The following procedure is intended only as a last resort when pressing theeject button fails to open the Loading Tray1. Turn computer power OFF by properly shutting down system.2. Insert a solid bar (i.e. large paper clip) into Emergency Eject hole and push as shown in thepicture below3. DVD tray will open/eject.Figure 3.Using Emergency EjectThis procedure cannot be repeated without cycling the DVD-ROMs (computer's) power.After the media is removed and the loading tray is closed, the tray will not reopen without first turning thepower ON/OFF.7

NOTE: Use a bar that is less than 1.5 mm in diameter.Do not insert more than 50mm in depth.Inserting more than 50mm may damage the DVD-ROM drive.Handling MediaDVD media is sensitive to dust and fingerprints. Carefully handle media by its edges only. If a DVDmovie skips or hangs during playback, clean the media. Most DVD video playback issues are mediarelated and can be remedied by proper handling and care of media.Cleaning MediaTry to avoid touching the read area (underside) of the disc as dirt and smears will degrade the discaccessing speed.If the disc becomes dirty wipe it with a damp soft cloth. Avoid cleaning in a circular motion, but ratherfrom the inner side outward.8
