Abstract

This apparatus provides for a reading of servo information from a magnetic track on disk 10 (Fig. 1) and storing the information in servo storage memory 12 (Fig. 2) for use in positioning magnetic head 14 over the track during subsequent revolutions. While the position information gathered during a previous disk revolution is being used to position head 134 over the desired track during the current revolution, simultaneously position information is gathered by head 14 for use during the next disk revolution.
