GUI for sure..!

One more point, today I dumped a collection of a friend of mine.. more than 120 disks.. I noticed that in some cases the map of the bad tracks was changing if I tried to red multiple times.. This means that tracks sentenced as "Unreadable" at the next pass were read correctly.. and this is strange isn't it ? Let me know if in the end you will try the track0-reset.. it should be just a simple routine, I strongly think it worths trying..

Might have been you cleaned the disks by reading them... :) this is a common thing to happen.

Apart from that I think we should add such stepping as an option. Will talk to IFW.

Thanks Mr. Vince.
Yes.. it could be it's just a matter to let it spin for some time..
Some of these disks are really in very bad conditions.. maybe some humidity made its way inside (condensation?) however.. some are really unrecoverable, but looking to the magnetic surface you clearly tell why..
despite of these I was able to recover a lot.. most of them were unreadable on the AMIGA.. Thanks for this fantastic little electronic Jewel folks !
