making copies for others is the media. I only have a few
hard sectored disk. For some reason, I thought that disk
formats would last at least as long as 33 lp records. I
didn't realize at the time that media was being obsoleted
as fast as it was produced. I know better now.
The funny thing some small record companies still produce
records.You can still get records, but not the crappy $7.95 k-tell
stuff, but higher priced and higher quality audio.A good
record changer and other assorted parts ( like a clean record)
is better music wise than any CD.
Can a regular disk be punched to make hard sectored disc?
Yes, one can take normal disk and punch them. They do
need to be accurately done. I've been looking at setting
up an index wheel to do just this. I have need for
doing it on 5-1/4 and 8 inch so it is an interesting
problem. One of my 8 inch applications has index holes
on the outer diameter of the disk.
