  • Patent number: 6271455
    Abstract: A music piece distributing apparatus receives a request signal including music piece identification information and compressing system identification information from a receiving apparatus and transmits music piece data in which a music piece corresponding to the music piece identification information has been compressed by a compressing system corresponding to the compressing system identification information to the receiving apparatus. The request signal is transmitted through a public line. A music piece receiving apparatus receives the music piece data from the music piece distributing apparatus by a digital broadcasting receiving apparatus and decodes the received music piece data by a compression decoding system corresponding to the compressing system designated by the compressing system identification information.

  • Patent number: 5999354
    Abstract: Even if a read error of data in a tape management area takes place due to a scratch on the tape, the management area data can be securely restored by the retry process.Assume that the initial value of the physical ID is equivalent to 4000ID that is the distance measured from the PBOT. After the normal write process for the VSIT is performed, the initial value of the physical ID becomes -1600ID (see FIG. 19A). After the first write retry process has been performed, the initial value of the physical ID becomes -1700ID (see FIG. 19B). After the first write retry process has been performed, the initial value of the physical ID becomes -1800ID (see FIG. 19C). Thus, whenever the retry process is performed, the initial value of the physical ID is decreased for 100ID. On the other hand, the VSIT is written from 0ID. In the retry process for the VSIT, the physical ID of the start position is not changed. However, the real write position (namely, the distance measured from the start position) is changed.
