Hello:

Something I find pleasant with my APE interface is that I find some of my disks, which are getting very old real fast, is that I get a few CRC errors or blank spots that the interface find. I try the same disk with errors with VTOCFIX and find that the file is bad, so delete and rescan the disk. If VTOCFIX dont find anything, I know what sector to look at and see it has data, and then I note on the disk with the error. Again it is more work, but well worth knowing I have problems and APE found it and noted it in a file.

If you find other pleasant things, please post your findings

Try also the recovery option on APE. It really helps.
Also, I found that reading the disk again, sometimes helps the CRC errors.

Probably because the disks are dusty or something.

Does someone have a good tip on how to clean the head on the 1050?
Just some alcohol perhaps?

regards,

Louis
