On handling floppy disks
❑ Do not open the shutter manually or touch the surface of the floppy disk.
❑ Keep floppy disks away from magnets.
❑ Keep floppy disks away from direct sunlight and other sources of heat.
On handling compact discs
❑ Do not touch the surface of the disc.
❑ Do not drop or bend the disc.
❑ Fingerprints and dust on the surface of a disc may cause reading errors. Always
hold the disc by its edge and central hole, as shown.
❑ Proper care of the disc is essential to its continuous reliability. Do not use
solvents such as benzine, thinning agents, commercially available cleaners or
anti-static spray, as they may cause damage to the disc.
❑ For normal cleaning, hold the disc by its edge and use a soft cloth to wipe the
surface from the centre out.
❑ 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 from the centre out. Wipe off any remaining moisture with a dry soft cloth.
❑ Never put stickers on discs. This will affect the use of the disc irreparably.
