Abstract

Our invention comprised two layers mounted to a removable media cartridge, such as a magnetic tape cartridge. The first layer being a magnetizable material which leaves a visible trace of the magnetization for human reading, and the second layer being a shunt layer, so that the magnetic field used to magnetize the first layer does not affect the data stored on the magnetic media.
