Hallo:

The ponderous terminology you employ might actually convey the meaning you
intend. Telling someone to insert the CD-ROM into the drive has a singular
meaning that is difficult to mis-comprehend. If your audience understands
and the meaning is crystal clear, then I believe you have won your battle.
However, I would use put.

Stay safe.
