IXsclosed is a new memory card, intended to be a multipurpose storage device for an clcctrophotographic-printing machine. The memory card offers maximum flexibility and storage capacity. A layout transportable to new storage media, hardware, and software packages provides maximum benefit for software reuse. Further, the layout eliminates the job size limitation of older cards wherein now, only the memory available on the card limits job size.

Many information types are stored on the memory card without affecting card manager software. A paging scheme organizes the card with page sizes determined by their application during formatting. Each memory card contains a linked list of memory pages with each page having a description header and multiple linked lists of data records. Each record list contains records of the same data type and is composed linked data blocks.
