Abstract

This article describes a system for loading media in a compact optical file having interchangeable media. The hub/motor assembly 1 with locking knob 2 is mounted on rails 4 and slides out of the file 5 while the head/arm assembly 6 stays inside file 5. For media removal, locking knob 2 is turned and hub/motor assembly 1 slided out of file 5. Media 3 can now easily be unloaded. Loading is done in the reverse order.
