Magnetic Disks

Filed under: — 2006-03-19 by Richard L. Hess — Last Edit 2012-01-12 by Richard L. Hess

Audio Disks: Magnetic disks have been used to store digital data since the 1950s. In the 1960s, Ampex introduced the CueMat to attempt to displace the NAB Broadcast Cartridge tape. It was not well received. Someone  we know may be willing to help transfer one of these. Note for Minidiscs, see the magneto-optical/minidisc page. Please click here for digital audio disks.

Data Disks: There are a wide variety of data disk formats which are beyond the scope of our services. A good place to start if you are looking to convert older data disks is Mueller Media ConversionsDriveSavers in Northern California may also be able to help. Please contact us first for a referral that might save you money!
