Subject: Re: idea for a universal disk interface

I'm looking at what the spec says.  ;-)  The read command delay from the head 
set command is 15us (so I was wrong) but still not a lot of time (that is after 
a head set, a read command must be at least 15us later).


And after the read command is given there is a gap, usually all zeros, at the 
end of which is a sync byte which is then followed by the first good data (or 
header) byte.  In SMD the gaps can be  20 or 30 bytes long so there is quite a 
bit of time until good data.
