Data are recorded onto a storage member with error correction and detection redundancies. The recording is interleaved in a manner that most errors result in one byte of error in each of the interleaved portions. Recording can be performed in one or more tracks while using the same error correcting interleave. Error detection redundancies are located within each data field to be error corrected. Error location pointers are provided. Error processing includes evaluating location and magnitude of each detected error. Error correction is pipelined.
