Information technology -- Cases for 120 mm and 80 mm DVD-RAM disks

ISO/IEC 17594:2004 specifies the characteristics of a case for use with the 120 mm and 80 mm DVD-RAM disks specified in ISO/IEC 17592. ISO/IEC 17594:2004 specifies nine related, but different implementations of this case. ISO/IEC 17594:2004 specifies: the environments in which the cases are to be operated and stored; the dimensional and mechanical characteristics of the case, so as to provide mechanical interchangeability between data processing systems. ISO/IEC 17594:2004 provides for mechanical interchange between optical disk drives. Together with ISO/IEC 17592 for 120 mm (4,7 Gbytes per side) and 80 mm (1,46 Gbytes per side) DVD-RAM disks and a standard for volume and file structure, it provides for full data interchange between data processing systems.

ISO/IEC 17594:2004(E)
Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of

ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees

established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC

technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental

and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information

technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of the joint technical committee is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as

an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO/IEC 17594 was prepared by Ecma International (as ECMA-331) and was adopted, under a special “fast-

track procedure”, by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, in parallel with its

approval by national bodies of ISO and IEC.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC 17594:2004(E)
Information technology — Cases for 120 mm and 80 mm
DVD-RAM disks
Section 1 - General
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies the characteristics of a case for use with the 120 mm and 80 mm DVD-

RAM disks specified in International Standard ISO/IEC 17592. The present International Standard specifies

nine related , but different implementations of this case, viz.

Type 1 A case for a one-sided (Type 1S) or a two-sided (Type 2S) 120 mm DVD-RAM disk such that the

disk cannot be removed from the case. This case is reversible.

Type 2 A case for a one-sided (Type 1S) 120 mm DVD-RAM disk such that the disk may be removed from

the case. This case is not reversible.

Type 3 A case into which a one-sided (Type 1S) or a two-sided (Type 2S) 120 mm DVD-RAM disk may be

inserted, then used as a cartridge. This case is not reversible.

Type 4 A case for a two-sided (Type 2S) 120 mm DVD-RAM disk such that the disk may be removed from

the case. This case is reversible.

Type 5 A case into which a one-sided (Type 1S) or a two-sided (Type 2S) 120 mm DVD-RAM disk may be

inserted, then used as a cartridge. This case is reversible.

Type 6 A case for a two-sided (Type 2S) 80 mm DVD-RAM disk such that the disk may be removed from

the case. This case is reversible.

Type 7 A case for a one-sided (Type 1S) 80 mm DVD-RAM disk such that the disk may be removed from

the case. This case is not reversible.

Type 8 A case into which a two-sided (Type 2S) 80 mm DVD-RAM disk may be inserted, then used as a

cartridge. This case is reversible.

Type 9 A case into which a one-sided (Type 1S) 80 mm DVD-RAM disk may be inserted, then used as a

cartridge. This case is not reversible.
This International Standard specifies
− the environments in which the cases are to be operated and stored;

− the dimensional and mechanical characteristics of the case, so as to provide mechanical

interchangeability between data processing systems;

This International Standard provides for mechanical interchange between optical disk drives. Together with

International Standard ISO/IEC 17592 for 120 mm (4,7 Gbytes per side) and 80 mm (1,46 Gbytes per side)

DVD-RAM disks and a standard for volume and file structure, it provides for full data interchange between

data processing systems.
2 Conformance

A claim of conformance with this International Standard shall specify the Type implemented. A case shall be in

conformance with this International Standard if it meets the mandatory requirements specified herein for its

Type.

3 Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated

references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced

document (including any amendments) applies.

ISO/IEC 17592:2004, Information technology — 120 mm (4,7 Gbytes per side) and 80 mm (1,46 Gbytes per

side) DVD Rewritable Disk (DVD-RAM)
ECMA-287:2002, Safety of electronic equipment
4 Definitions
For the purpose of this International Standard the following definitions apply:
4.1
cartridge
a device consisting of a case containing a rewritable disk
4.2
case

the housing for an optical disk, that protects the disk and facilitates disk interchange

5 Conventions and notations
5.1 Representation of numbers

A measured value is rounded off to the least significant digit of the corresponding specified value. For

instance, it implies that a specified value of 1,26 with a positive tolerance of + 0,01 and a negative tolerance of

- 0,02 allows a range of measured values from 1,235 to 1,275.
5.2 Names
The names of entities, e.g. specific sides, etc. are given a capital initial.
6 General description of the case
6.1 General description of the Type 1 case (Figure 1)

The case is a rigid protective container of rectangular shape. Sides A and B of the case are identical as far as

the features given here are concerned. References to Sides A and B of the case can be changed to B or A,

respectively. When the opening of the one is a head and spindle window for the spindle and the optical head

of the drive, that of the other is an access window for the disk clamping apparatus. A shutter uncovers the

windows upon insertion into the drive, and automatically covers them upon removal from the drive. The case

has features that enable a drive to reject a mis-inserted cartridge, to inhibit writing, sensor holes, detents for

autoloading and a vertical use, gripper slots for an autochanger, label areas and side identification marks.

Sides A and B of the case have the same configuration.
6.2 General description of the Type 2 case (Figure 2)

The Type 2 case has the same features as the Type 1 case, but with some differences. The shape of the case

is different on Side A and on Side B. Side A does not need to have a location hole, an alignment hole,
