How does it work?[edit]

This needs a diagram. Show a recording head, magnetic fields, coils, gaps, vertical and horizontal domains. Explain the difference between analog and magnetic recording. What is tape bias? Got to talk about the physics, where the rubber meets the road. What causes noise on analog tapes? What's equalization? What happens when the bits get too close together on a disk or tape? --Wtshymanski (talk) 14:58, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Look out for possible copyright violations in this article[edit]

This article has been found to be edited by students of the Wikipedia:India Education Program project as part of their (still ongoing) course-work. Unfortunately, many of the edits in this program so far have been identified as plain copy-jobs from books and online resources and therefore had to be reverted. See the India Education Program talk page for details. In order to maintain the WP standards and policies, let's all have a careful eye on this and other related articles to ensure that no material violating copyrights remains in here. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 15:56, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Shingled Magnetic Recording[edit]

Shingled Magnetic Recording is a redirect in this article, so this article should also explain Shingled Magnetic Recording. --MrBurns (talk) 13:10, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Likewise, I've just ended up here after searching for Shingled Magnetic Recording, and there's no explanation. --Russell Newman (talk) 23:14, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
