IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit
you are not sure about your IDE bus adapter, see the documentation
that comes with your computer.
IDE cables and connectors
The IDE cables connect the IDE port on the system board, or on an
IDE adapter, to your IDE storage devices. IDE storage devices are
hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives, and tape drives.
If your computer has one IDE port, you can attach a maximum of
two devices, as shown in the following illustration.
need to change the configuration of that device. For more
information, refer to the documentation that comes with the device.
You cannot install some devices, such as a high speed tape drive,
on the same port as a CD-ReWritable drive.
Power connector
You will need an unused power connector on a cable coming from
the computer power supply in order to provide power to the drive.
If all power cables are in use, purchase a dc Y-connector (available
at many electronic stores) and split a connection to provide power
for more devices.
CD-ReWritable drive mounting
You can install the CD-ReWritable drive in a vertical or horizontal
5.25-inch mounting bay. You might need both a flat-blade and a
Phillips-head screwdriver for the installation.
If your computer has two IDE ports (one IDE cable on each port),
you can attach up to four devices (two devices on each cable).
If your IDE cables have only one connector, you can replace one of
the cables with the two-connector IDE cable that comes with this

Installing the drive
3. Before handling the drive, ground yourself by touching an
unpainted surface on the computer. Ground yourself again after
leaving and returning to your work area.
The instructions in this section are general guidelines that apply to
most computers. For specific information on installing a drive in your
computer, see the documentation that comes with your computer.
4. Always handle the drive by its edges. Do not touch any exposed
printed circuitry, components, or connector pins.
Step 1. Opening the computer
5. While installing the drive, avoid all unnecessary handling. Rough
handling can damage the components inside the drive housing.
1. Turn off the computer and all attached devices.
2. Unplug from the electrical outlets all cables for your computer
and attached devices.
It is now safe to open your computer.
For specific information about opening your computer, see the
documentation that comes with your computer.
Step 2. Unpacking the drive
Follow these steps when you unpack the drive.
1. Do not open the antistatic bag until you are ready to install the
drive. Static electricity can damage the drive and other computer
components.
2. Touch your hand and the inner conductive surface of the antistatic
bag containing the drive to an unpainted metal surface on the
computer for two seconds. This drains static electricity from the
bag and your body.
1-4
IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit
6. If you must put the drive down, place the antistatic bag on a flat
padded surface, such as a magazine, and place the drive on the
bag.
Step 3. Setting the configuration jumpers
You can configure your drive as Master 1 , Slave
Select 3 , as shown.
2 , or Cable
Use the following guidelines to determine the correct configuration for
your CD-RW drive.
Configure the CD-ReWritable drive as a Master if it will be the
only device connected to an IDE cable. (This is the preset
configuration.)
Configure the CD-ReWritable drive as a Slave if it will be the
second device on an IDE cable. Be sure to configure the other
device as a Master. In some cases, a hard disk drive might
require a Master with Slave Present jumper setting when another
device on the same cable is configured as a Slave. For further
information on setting configuration jumpers on other devices,
refer to the documentation that comes with your computer system
or with the device.
Some non-IBM computers use special ATA cables with two wires
reversed in the device connectors so that the drives can be
configured by the cable instead of by jumper position. Use the
Cable Select position only for systems equipped with these
special cables. See the documentation that came with your
computer to determine if your ATA adapter requires that you
place the jumpers in the Cable Select position.
If you place the jumpers in the Cable Select position, the IDE
cable automatically assigns the Master and Slave settings based
on the position of the drive on the cable. You must use the
Cable Select setting for this cabling system whether the
CD-ReWritable drive is the only device or the second device
connected to the cable. The drive closest to the IDE controller is
automatically the Master drive. Any other devices on the IDE
cable must also be set to Cable Select.
Step 4. Mounting the drive in the bay
Attention: Be sure to use the M3 x 5 mm mounting screws that
come with the option package. You might damage the drive if
you use mounting screws that are too long.
You can mount the CD-ReWritable drive horizontally or vertically in
the computer. If you mount the drive vertically, you must secure any
CDs you place into the drive before closing the drive tray, or the drive
will not be able to read from the CD properly. For further instructions
on securing your CDs in a vertically mounted drive, go to page 2-5.
1. Slide the drive into the bay. Your computer might require unique
installation procedures for storage devices. Refer to the
documentation that comes with your computer for further
instructions on installing storage devices.
2. Align the drive-bay screw holes with the threaded holes in the
drive housing or mounting bracket.
3. Loosely hand thread the screws in the screw holes to check the
alignment of the screws with the screw holes. Usually two
screws are used on each side. If the screws are correctly aligned
with the screw holes, tighten them to secure the drive. Do not
overtighten.
Part 1: Quick installation guide

Step 5. Attaching the cables to the drive
The diagram below shows where to connect cables to the drive.
devices (hard disk drives) to the cable connected to the primary IDE
port, and the CD-ReWritable drive or other slower devices (CD-ROM
drives, tape drives, removable media) to the cable connected to the
secondary IDE port.
Attach a four-pin power-cable connector 3 to the device dc-power
connector, as shown.
If you have a sound adapter, connect one of the included audio cables
1 to the device audio-out connector. Use the audio cable that has a
connector that fits your sound adapter. Keep the other cable in case
you use a different sound adapter in the future.
Be sure that the cables will not be pinched or crowded by the
computer cover and that all other cable and power connections are
secure.
Connect the drive to an available 40-pin connector on the IDE
interface cable, as shown 2 . Align the cable so that the color-coded
edge is closest to the power-cable connector 3 . The interface cable
can have up to three connectors. For the best signal quality when you
are connecting only one device to the IDE cable, attach the connector
on one end of the cable to the IDE port and the connector on the other
end of the cable to the device. Do not use the middle connector. Use
the IDE cable provided with this option if there is no cable attached to
the computer IDE port, or if there is only one device connector on the
computer IDE cable.
If you are connecting two devices to the IDE cable, attach the
connector on one end of the cable and the remaining cable connectors
to the Master and Slave devices. Many computers have two cables for
attaching up to four ATA devices. For best performance, attach fast

Step 6. Completing the hardware installation
To complete the installation of the drive:
1. Verify that the drive is securely mounted and the connectors are
firmly attached.
2. Verify that the cables do not interfere with the computer cover
and do not block the power-supply fan blades or air-flow paths.
3. Reinstall the computer cover.
4. Reconnect all devices. Make sure that the keyboard, mouse, and
monitor cables are firmly attached.
5. Reconnect all ac power cords and turn on the computer.
Step 7. Attaching the faceplates
This option kit includes two faceplates which conform to the curved
design of some computers. If your computer has a curved design, you
can attach one of the included faceplates so that the front of the
CD-ReWritable drive matches the exterior cabinet. Select the
faceplate that best fits your computer, and attach the faceplate after
you have mounted the CD-ReWritable drive in the appropriate bay.
Step 8. Updating your computer configuration
When you restart your computer, the configuration-setup information
screen might appear because you changed the hardware in your
computer. Some computers require you to make configuration choices
the first time you restart after installing a new device. If the screen
does not display, see your computer documentation for information
about how to access it. For most IBM computers, you can see the
configuration information during computer startup by pressing F1
when the configuration graphic displays in the upper right corner of
your screen. When you have finished reviewing the configuration
information, save the changes and exit.
Note: Some older computers with one IDE port might not
display the CD-ReWritable drive information when you review the
configuration-setup information. However, you can still use the
CD-ReWritable drive.

Before you begin
Using CD-R and CD-RW discs
This guide contains information on using your drive with CDs after
installation. If you have not already installed your CD-ReWritable
drive, go to “Installing the drive” on page 1-4.
The CD-ReWritable drive can write to both CD-R and CD-RW discs.
CD-R discs cannot be erased, but can be used with standard CD-ROM
drives and CD players. You can use CD-R discs to record audio
tracks, store data, archive files, and copy files from another CD.
Protecting the drive after installation
CD-RW discs can be erased and re-written, but can be used only with
newer Multi-Read and CD-RW compatible CD-ROM and DVD-ROM
drives. You can use CD-RW discs to back up, store and update files,
or to copy files from another CD.
Note: CD-R discs are playable on audio CD players. CD-RW discs
are not playable on most audio CD players.
To protect your CD-ReWritable drive during operation, observe the
following precautions:
Remove any CD from the drive before moving the drive.
Do not insert foreign objects into the drive.
Do not stack objects on the drive.
Do not remove the drive cover or attempt to service the drive.
Do not operate the drive under any of the following conditions:
–
–
–
High temperature, high humidity, or direct sunlight
Excessive vibration, sudden shock, or inclined surface
Excessive dust

Customizing device driver
configuration settings
Attention: After you install the IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable
Drive Option Diskette, you can use a DOS session in Windows
3.x, DOS, OS/2, Windows 98, and Windows 95 to access the
drive as a CD-ROM drive.
This section contains optional configuration information for the IBM
2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Drive Option Diskette device drivers for
Windows 3.x, DOS, OS/2 and Windows 98 and 95. Use the online
help during the installation and refer to the READ.ME file on the IBM
2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Drive Option Diskette for additional
information.
Requirements vary, and you might need to customize the configuration
that the CDSETUP program installed on your computer. This section
provides information and describes parameters that you might need to
change or add for your installation.
Changing device driver parameters for DOS and
Windows
Most computers will function adequately with the default settings for
the IBMIDECD.SYS device driver file. However, there are some
parameters that can be changed if necessary. This section explains the
function of each parameter. Use a text editor to modify the
appropriate line in your CONFIG.SYS file. For the IBMIDECD.SYS
device driver file, the line in CONFIG.SYS is in the following format:
DEVICE=[drive:][path]IBMIDECD.SYS /D:device name
[/P:xxx,yy] [/A:n] [/U:n]
[/L:xx] [/T:n] [/I:n]
(Do not truncate the actual device driver entry. Place the complete
DEVICE= on one line in the CONFIG.SYS file.)
[drive:][path]IBMIDECD.SYS
The above parameter specifies the location (drive and directory) and
name of the device driver file.
Use the following options to configure the device driver.
/D:device name
This parameter specifies the device name of the CD-ROM
drive. This name must be identical to the device name
specified in the MSCDEX.EXE parameters, as shown:
DEVICE=C:\IBMIDECD.SYS /D:IBMCD1
/P:xxx,yy
This parameter specifies the address and interrupt level of the
port to which the IDE CD-ROM drive is connected.
Part 3: Appendixes
3-13
The device driver automatically checks the industry standard
primary IDE port (address 1F0, interrupt 14) and secondary IDE
port (address 170, interrupt 15). The /P parameter is not
needed if your CD-ROM drive is connected to either of these
ports. However, if your computer (or IDE adapter) uses
different IDE port addresses or interrupts, you must use this
option. Refer to the instructions that come with your computer
or IDE adapter for more information about the configuration of
your computer or adapter.
/U:n
This parameter specifies if your computer initializes with the
CD tray unlocked or locked. /U:0 initializes with the tray
unlocked. /U:1 initializes with the tray locked. The default
command is n=0. This command might be used if you want to
secure your CD in the drive.
/L:xx
This parameter specifies the message language where xx
designates the language.
xxx is the base address of the IDE port.

1F0 for the primary IDE port (Port 1)
170 for the secondary IDE port (Port 2)
yy is the interrupt (IRQ) level.
14 for the primary IDE port (Port 1)
15 or 10 for the secondary IDE port (Port 2)
/T:n
When four drives are connected, for example, the syntax in the
CONFIG.SYS file would be:
DEVICE=C:IBMIDECD.SYS /D:IBMCD1
/P:17 ,15 /P:1E ,12 /P:16 ,1
/P:1F ,14
(Do not truncate the actual device driver entry. Place the
complete DEVICE= on one line in the CONFIG.SYS file.)
/A:n
This parameter specifies the audio play mode. For a stereo CD,
you can type /A:0 or /A:1. For a monaural CD (left or right
channel only), type /A:1 in order to play the monaural audio
signal from the right and left channels. The default is n=0.

IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit
This parameter specifies time delays to be built into the IDE
read loop. Use this parameter only in computers that do not
support the IOCHRDY signal on the IDE bus, and in computers
that read from the IDE port faster than the CD-ROM can
provide data. This parameter is usually not required in most
computers.
n is a relative timing parameter that depends on processor
speed. When the value of n increases, the drive data-transfer
rate decreases. Valid values for n are 0 through 99. The
default for n is 0, and the /T parameter is not required.
/I:n
This parameter enables interrupt sharing. If n=1, interrupt
sharing is enabled. If n=0, interrupt sharing is disabled. The
default value is 0. Set this parameter to enabled when the IDE
interrupt must be shared with another device. For example, a
PS/2 9577 computer with IDE could share interrupt 14 with the
IBM SCSI Adapter /A.
/D:device name
This parameter specifies the name of the CD-ROM drive (eight
characters maximum). This name must be identical to the
device name specified in the device driver in the CONFIG.SYS
file. For example:
C:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IBMCD1
You might support multiple CD-ROM drives (of different types)
by installing each of their device drivers (naming them different
names) and placing a /D:device name in the MSCDEX line for
each drive. For example, if you wanted to support an IBM IDE
CD-ROM drive and an IBM SCSI CD-ROM drive, your
CONFIG.SYS file might have these statements:
Using Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions
Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions (MSCDEX.EXE) is an executable
program that works in conjunction with the device driver
(IBMIDECD.SYS) to enable your computer to read CDs as
DOS-formatted disks. MSCDEX is designed for DOS and Windows.
DEVICE=C:\IBMIDECD.SYS /D:IDE_CD
DEVICE=C:\IBMCDROM.SYS /D:SCSI_CD
The CDSETUP program automatically adds an MSCDEX statement to
your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. You can modify the default MSCDEX
parameters to customize your installation. This section explains the
function of each parameter. A text editor can be used to modify the
MSCDEX statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
and your AUTOEXEC.BAT file could include this statement:
C:\MSCDEX /D:IDE_CD /D:SCSI_CD
/M:nn
The following is the syntax of the MSCDEX.EXE entry in
AUTOEXEC.BAT where [drive:][path]MSCDEX.EXE specifies the
location (drive and directory) of the MSCDEX.EXE file.
:] [path
]MSCDEX.EXE /D:device name
[drive
[/M:n
] [/E] [/V] [/L:drive letter
]
[/K][/S]
(Do not truncate the actual device driver entry. Place the complete
entry on one line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.)
This parameter specifies the number of sector buffers for
temporary storage of the most recent CD data. For example, to
specify 12 sector buffers you would use:
C:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IBMCD1
/M:12
The CDSETUP program sets this value to 10. The default
value for MSCDEX with no /M parameter is 4.
You can improve CD-ROM drive performance when you use
larger default values. However, each buffer uses about 2 KB of
Use the following options to configure the device driver.
Part 3: Appendixes

memory, and too many buffer specifications might slow down
your computer or interfere with other programs that have large
memory-usage requirements. You might be able to specify a
larger number of buffers to enhance CD-ROM drive
performance without adversely affecting programs that have
large memory-usage requirements if you use expanded memory
(see the /E option in this section) or if you load MSCDEX.EXE
into high memory using instructions given in the documentation
that comes with your operating system or with the memory
manager.
C:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IBMCD1
Normally, the CD-ROM drive is assigned to the next available
drive letter after devices such as diskette drives and hard disk
drives. Therefore, you use this option only if you wish to
assign a drive letter beyond the last letter previously allocated
by DOS.
/K
This parameter instructs MSCDEX.EXE to use Kanji (Japanese)
file structures, if present, rather than the default alphanumeric
file structures.
/E
This parameter instructs the computer to use expanded memory,
if available. For example:
C:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IBMCD1
/E
Note that you must first load an expanded memory device
driver before using this option. If no expanded-memory device
driver is loaded, the following error message displays:
Expanded Memory not present or not usable.
/V
This parameter instructs the computer to display a summary of
RAM allocation and expanded memory usage at startup time.
/L:drive letter
This parameter specifies the drive letter to be assigned to the
first CD-ROM drive. Do not assign a letter already used by an
existing drive or your computer will not be able to access the
CD-ROM drive. For example, you might use:
3-16
IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit
/L:F
/S
This parameter instructs MSCDEX.EXE to allow networked
computers to share CD-ROM drives.
Conserving DOS conventional memory
If the CD-ROM drive-support software is loaded in DOS conventional
memory (below 640 KB RAM), there might be insufficient memory to
run some DOS applications. The CDSETUP program attempts to load
the IDE CD-ROM drive device driver and MSCDEX into upper
memory, when possible, to avoid this problem.
For more information on techniques to conserve conventional memory,
refer to the following topics in the documentation that comes with
your operating system:
DOS=UMB, DOS=HIGH,UMB (CONFIG.SYS entry)
This command enables the use of upper memory and loads DOS,
MSCDEX, and the IDE CD-ROM device driver in upper
memory.
HIMEM.SYS (CONFIG.SYS entry)
This is a device driver that manages extended memory (RAM
memory above 1 MB). Windows automatically loads this device
driver.
EMM386.EXE (CONFIG.SYS entry)
This is a device driver that allows the extended memory made
available by HIMEM.SYS to be used as expanded memory. The
MSCDEX /E parameter might be used in conjunction with this
device driver to move the cache allocated by MSCDEX into this
memory, thus freeing some conventional memory.
Enhancing performance in DOS and Windows
The following two procedures can enhance CD-ROM drive
performance.
1. Allocate more MSCDEX cache (see /M parameter for MSCDEX).
2. Allow SMARTDRV to cache CD-ROM accesses.
The CDSETUP program disables the cache CD-ROM data
function. Multisession CDs are not compatible with the
SMARTDRV caching method. If you do not plan to use
PhotoCD or multiple-session CDs, you can enable caching by
removing the /U parameter from the SMARTDRV line in your
AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS file. This might improve the
performance of some CD-ROM applications. You must have
SMARTDRV 5.0 or later to cache CD-ROM data.
Updating the device driver for a DOS network server
If you are using the CD-ReWritable drive in a DOS Network server
you need to make the following changes:
MEM /C /P (use from DOS prompt)
1. Add the /S parameter to the MSCDEX line in the
AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
This is a useful DOS utility that will display the current memory
allocation in your computer to help you understand where device
drivers and programs are located. To display the MEM
parameters available, at the DOS prompt type mem/?
2. Verify that the MSCDEX line is located after the line that loads
the network services (NET START for IBM PC LAN program).
3. Do one of the following, depending on your operating system:
If you are using DOS 3.3, be sure you have PC Local Area
Network (LAN) Program Corrective Service Diskette level
IP00755 or later installed.
Part 3: Appendixes
3-17
If you are using DOS 4.0, be sure you have DOS Corrective
Service Diskette level UR 29015 or later installed. (The
computer cannot be configured as an Extended Services
Domain Controller for the IBM PC LAN Program.)
The following parameter is available:
Contact your IBM reseller for more information about the
PC LAN Program Corrective Service Diskette or the DOS
Corrective Service Diskette.
The file system device driver for OS/2 is CDFS.IFS. The following
parameters are available:

Windows 98 and Windows 95 have two device driver configuration
parameters: Auto Insert Notify and DMA.
The Auto Insert Notify parameter enables the system to start audio CD
software as soon as a CD is inserted into the CD-ROM drive.
The DMA parameter improves system performance by having the
system DMA controller take responsibility for moving data from the
CD to memory, freeing the system CPU to perform more important
tasks. For example, activating DMA might make movies and games
run more smoothly because the CPU will have more time to
concentrate on video.

Statement of Limited Warranty
The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply
only to Machines you originally purchase for your use, and not for resale, from
IBM or your reseller. The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features,
conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them.
Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the
country where you acquire the Machine. If you have any questions, contact IBM
or your reseller.
Machine: IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit (P/N:
20L0551)
Warranty Period*: One Year
*Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information.
Production Status
Each Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In
some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously
installed. Regardless of the Machine's production status, IBM's warranty terms
apply.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published Specifications. The
warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its
Date of Installation. The date on your receipt is the Date of Installation, unless
IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if authorized by IBM, will
provide warranty service under the type of service designated for the Machine
and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
For IBM or your reseller to provide warranty service for a feature, conversion,
or upgrade, IBM or your reseller may require that the Machine on which it is
installed be 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine
and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion,
or upgrade. Many of these transactions involve the removal of parts and their
return to IBM. You represent that all removed parts are genuine and unaltered.
A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of
the replaced part.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, IBM
or your reseller will repair it or replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent, without charge. The replacement may not be new, but will be in
good working order. If IBM or your reseller is unable to repair or replace the
Machine, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be
refunded.
If you transfer a Machine to another user, warranty service is available to that
user for the remainder of the warranty period. You should give your proof of
purchase and this Statement to that user. However, for Machines which have a
life-time warranty, this warranty is not transferable.
Warranty Service
Part 3: Appendixes
3-31
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, you should contact your reseller or
call IBM. In the United States, call IBM at 1-800-772-2227. In Canada, call
IBM at 1-800-565-3344. You may be required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller will provide certain types of repair and exchange service,
either at your location or at IBM's or your reseller's service center, to restore a
Machine to good working order.
When a type of service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item
IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement
becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and
unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order
and at least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement
assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item. Before IBM or your
reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts,
options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service. You also
agree to ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions
that prevent its exchange.
You agree to:
1. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
2. where applicable, before service is provided —
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service
request procedures that IBM or your reseller provide,
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine, and
c. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine's location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in
IBM's possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for
the transportation charges.
Extent of Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
3-32
IBM 2X/4X/24X CD-ReWritable Internal IDE Option Kit
The warranties may be voided by misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable
physical or operating environment, improper maintenance by you, removal or
alteration of Machine or parts identification labels, or failure caused by a
product for which IBM is not responsible.
THESE WARRANTIES REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT
LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS
OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL
RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH
VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. SOME
JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE
ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU. IN THAT EVENT SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN
DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES
APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Limitation of Liability
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM's part or other
liability you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract
or tort claim), IBM is liable only for:
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property
and tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages or loss, up to the greater of
U.S. $100,000 or the charges (if recurring, 12 months' charges apply) for
the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF
THE FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU
FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER
THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE
TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL,
OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR
SAVINGS), EVEN IF IBM OR YOUR RESELLER IS INFORMED
OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION
OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
