There are procedures on the Web for doing this, but I've never tried
them. They all involve scary methods of swapping discs and confusing
The go-to people for this type of repair if you're serious about it are:
I have sent several people there in the past and have received a rave
review and no other comments.
They have some neat tools you can buy, but for a few MDs their
service is less costly. I thought about getting their tools and
decided I'd just rather send people there who came to me with problem
MDs. I'm focusing on analog tape (open reel and cassettes; audio and
instrumentation) and can transfer several digital formats.
And, as a reminder, these folks are listed in my hierarchical formats
and resources section on my website. http://richardhess.com/notes/formats/
