Description / Abstract:

This standard specifies the general, physical, and magnetic requirements for interchangeability of the magnetic six-disk pack, as required to achieve unrecorded pack interchange between disk storages and associated information processing systems. The six-disk pack, with ten recording surfaces, is of the type intended specifically for use with digital recording and reproducing equipment employing access mechanisms capable of positioning up to 200 usable data tracks on each of the disk surfaces. The requirements for three additional track areas on each recording surface are identified for use as alternates in case of difficulty in reading or recording on any usable data track.
