ISO/IEC 29171:2009 specifies the dimensional, mechanical and physical characteristics of an information Versatile Disk for Removable usage (iVDR) cartridge to enable mechanical interchangeability between data processing systems. An iVDR cartridge can contain hard disk drive technology or other suitable storage technologies. ISO/IEC 29171:2009 specifies the environment in which iVDR cartridges are to be operated and stored, and specifies the dimensions and pin assignments of a connector employed by iVDR cartridges to enable data interchange. Together with ISO/IEC 24739-3 and a standard for volume and file structure, ISO/IEC 29171:2009 enables full data interchange between data processing systems.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

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

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member 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 shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO/IEC 29171 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee

Introduction

The original iVDR specification was developed by the “iVDR Consortium”, (http://www.ivdr.org).

Hard disk drive technologies can be used in the cartridge. A major use of iVDR cartridges might be storage for

digitally recorded audio and video content.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC 29171:2009(E)
Information technology — Digitally recorded media for
information interchange and storage — Information Versatile
Disk for Removable usage (iVDR) cartridge
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies the dimensional, mechanical and physical characteristics of an

information Versatile Disk for Removable usage (iVDR) cartridge to enable mechanical interchangeability

between data processing systems. Hard disk drive technologies can be used in the cartridge.

This International Standard specifies the environment in which iVDR cartridges are to be operated and stored,

and specifies the dimensions and pin assignments of a connector employed by iVDR cartridges to enable data

interchange.

Together with ISO/IEC 24739-3 and a standard for volume and file structure, this International Standard

enables full data interchange between data processing systems.

4 Conventions and notations
4.1 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.
Numbers in decimal notations are represented by the digits 0 to 9.

Numbers in hexadecimal notation are represented by the hexadecimal digits 0 to 9 and A to F in parentheses.

The setting of bits is denoted by ZERO and ONE.

Numbers in binary notations and bit patterns are represented by strings of digits 0 and 1.

4.2 Names

The names of entities, e.g. specific sides, are given a capital initial, except for iVDR.
