Abstract

Conventional magnetic recording discs have usually included parallel tracks for providing permanently recorded servo control information indicating whether the head is located above the track. The head includes a pair of transducers, the servo sensor and the magnetic recording transducer. When the servo sensor is properly aligned above its track, so is the magnetic recording transducer which may read or write or both.
