Archived - Power Mac G4 Cube: How to Insert a CD or DVD Disc

This article explains how to insert a CD or DVD disc in the Power Mac G4 Cube computer's DVD-ROM drive.
This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
When you insert a CD or DVD disc into the Power Mac G4 Cube computer's DVD-ROM drive, the label side should be facing you (assuming that the computer is oriented with the Apple logo facing you, and the ports are facing away from you). The drive ejects discs that are incorrectly oriented.

Some DVD discs have data on both sides of the disc, neither of which have a label. You should insert these discs with the side you want to access facing away from you.

See also article 58641: "Macintosh: Using Nonstandard Discs in Optical Media Drives" for specific examples of disc shapes that can be used in the slot loading drive of the Power Mac G4 Cube computer.
