It is important to eject storage media correctly. Follow these steps to do so:
Loading and unloading a Capture Drive
To load a Capture Drive lift the drive port cover at the front of the Onboard S. Slide the Capture Drive into the port (with cooling ridges facing upwards) and push so that the connector is fully mated. Close the drive port cover to complete the loading process. The word “LOADING” will be shown on the screen. The LED on the Capture Drive will flash blue whilst it loads, and turn off when it finishes loading.
To unload a Capture Drive lift the drive port cover. The word “UNLOADING” will be shown on the screen and the LED will begin flashing blue. The Capture Drive will be ejected the word “REMOVE” will be shown on the screen. The LED will become solid blue, meaning it is safe to pull the Capture Drive out of the drive port.
(WARNING - damage may occur to the Capture Drive if it is removed before the LED is solid blue)
Loading and unloading a Datapack
The Datapack should find a natural position when rested on the Onboard M due to the interlocking design of the loading mechanism. Take care that the Datapack is mated flat with the Onboard M before closing the locking mechanism. Turn the locking lever 180 degrees clockwise to lock the Datapack to the Onboard M. The word “LOADING” will be shown on the screen.
When unloading the Datapack, unlock the lever by approximately 20 degrees to the first position. The word “UNLOADING” will be shown on the screen and the LED will briefly flash red. Wait until the LED on the Datapack becomes solid red, at which point the word “REMOVE” will be shown on the screen, and then fully unlock the lever.(WARNING - damage may occur to the Datapack drives if the lever is turned before the LED is solid red)
