Take care of your media

Eddie Kidd Jump Challenge was under the heads just last weekend.

I think it took over an hour to dump, one track at a time, cleaning the heads between each track, several retries...

In the end the game data was preserved 100% working (minus few damaged unused sectors). :geek:

And this wasn't the only one, tho the other disks weren't in such a horrid state.

Amazing that it was still possible to rescue the data.

I would credit that to the host software (DTC) which has gotten very robust by now. :)
