damaging the disc. Do not attempt to remove the disc when

How to remove a disc
How to hold a disc
< Discs should be returned to their cases after use to avoid dust and
scratches that could cause the laser pickup to “skip.”
< Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or high temperature
or humidity for extended periods. Long exposure to high
temperatures will warp discs.
< CD-R and CD-RW discs are more sensitive to the effects of heat
and ultraviolet rays than ordinary CDs. It is important that they
not be stored in locations where they will be exposed to direct
sunlight. They should also be kept away from sources of heat, such
as radiators and heat-generating electrical devices.
