I have had packs on rare occasions which when I first
obtained them had
a few records which were unreadable - and a clean reformat made them
100% error free.
Err, I thought RL02 packs came pre-formatted (at least, the low-level stuff
like sector headers, etc), and could not be field re-formatted? Or are you
simply talking of a high-level re-format (i.e. the file system), which might
write all data blocks to zero or something, thereby getting rid of the
un-readable contents of such blocks?

It's high time someone collated all the 'new
hardware' projects out
there ... should be a one-stop shop where info on all this stuff is
The obvious place to put it is on our Wiki, of course... (Hint, hint... :-)
