Handling Discs
<Optical disc drive equipped models>

Read the following to protect data stored on discs and take proper care of discs.
  • Be sure to hold the disc by its edges and central hole without touching the recording surface (playing surface), as shown below.
    Fingerprints and dust on the surface of a disc may cause a read or write error. Be sure to keep the disc clean.

  • Sony assumes no liability for any problems and damages to discs arising out of adhesive labels affixed to discs. Refer to the manual carefully that came with the label software or label paper, and use the labels under your responsibility.

To take proper care of discs

  • For normal cleaning, hold the disc by its edges and use a soft cloth to wipe the surface from the center out, as shown below.

  • If the disc is badly soiled, moisten a soft cloth with water, wring it out well, and use it to wipe the surface of the disc. Wipe off any remaining moisture with a dry soft cloth.

  • Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static spray which may cause damage to the disc.
