  • Patent number: 9152431
    Abstract: When a shutdown is detected, a master boot record (MBR) or a backup MBR are read. When the data of the MBR is not identical to the data of the backup MBR, the MBR is copied to the backup MBR. When the backup MBR cannot normally be read or is improper, the MBR is copied to the backup MBR. When the backup MBR cannot normally be read or is improper while the power of the computer is turned on, the MBR is copied to the backup MBR.

  • Publication number: 20150102107
    Abstract: In order to perform processing of analyzing card data in an appropriate amount of time depending on the number of tracks actually present on a magnetic stripe with use of a single demodulation circuit, the single demodulation circuit produces, based on magnetic data read by a magnetic head, a single common card running signal obtained by ORing card running signals of tracks present on the magnetic stripe of the magnetic card, a clock signal of each track present on the magnetic stripe, and a data signal of each track present on the magnetic stripe. A card running signal generation circuit generates, based on the common card running signal and the clock signal of each track, an individual card running signal of each track present on the magnetic stripe.
