Guard-Against-Dropout Function
Slight shocks to a CD player can cause the audio track to hesitate.
The 20X Max Portable CD-ROM Drive has a special function to
reduce this kind of dropout. The CD-ROM drive reads ahead on

This reduces interruptions to playback that can occur if the CD-ROM
drive is moved or bumped.
Attention
Do not set the CD-ROM drive near electronic equipment.
Do not use the CD-ROM drive near electronic equipment such as
televisions or stereo speakers. The CD-ROM drive processes a

Maintaining the Drive
Use the following instructions to clean your drive and CDs:
Ÿ
Cleaning the Surface of the CD-ROM Drive: Lightly wipe the
CD-ROM drive with a dry soft cloth. If stains remain on the
surface, use a damp cloth (soak cloth in a diluted mild detergent
and squeeze it firmly). Do not use solvents such as thinner,
alcohol, and benzene. They cause deformation and discoloration.
Ÿ
Cleaning the Lens: If the lens is dirty, the CD-ROM drive might
not operate correctly. Clean the lens with a CD lens cleaner
(available at stores).
Ÿ
Cleaning the CD: Clean the CD with a soft cloth from the center
to the outside radially. If stains remain on the disk, clean it with
a damp cloth (soak cloth in water and squeeze it firmly). Then,
wipe the disk with a dry soft cloth. Do not use record cleaner or
antistatic spray.

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.
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
3-16
20X Max Portable CD-ROM Drive
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.
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
Warranty Service
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 —
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
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
Part 3: Appendixes
3-17
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.
