CDs and DVDs
Use of CDs/DVDs
▷ Do not use self-recorded CDs/DVDs with labels applied, as these can become detached during playback due to heat buildup and can cause irreparable damage to the device.
▷ Only use round CDs/DVDs with a standard diameter of 4.7 in/12 cm and do not play CDs/DVDs with an adapter, e.g., single CDs; otherwise, the CDs or the adapter may jam and no longer eject.
▷ Do not use combined CDs/DVDs, e.g., DVD Plus, as the CDs/DVDs can jam and will no longer eject.
▷ CD/DVD changers and players have been optimized for performance in vehicles. In some instances they may be more sensitive to faulty CDs/DVDs than stationary devices would be.
▷ If a CD/DVD cannot be played, first check whether it has been inserted correctly.
High levels of humidity can lead to condensation on the CD/DVD or the laser's scan lens, and temporarily prevent playback.
Malfunctions involving individual CDs/ DVDs
If malfunctions occur only with particular CDs/ DVDs, this can be due to one of the following causes:
▷ Possible reasons for malfunctions with home-recorded CDs/DVDs are inconsistent data creation or recording processes, or poor quality or old age of the blank CD/DVD.
▷ Only label CDs/DVDs on the upper side with a pen intended for this purpose.
▷ Avoid fingerprints, dust, scratches and moisture.
▷ Store CDs/DVDs in a sleeve.
▷ Do not subject CDs/DVDs to temperatures over 122 ℉/50 ℃, high humidity or direct sunlight.
