Title (EN) INFORMATION PROCESSING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT D'INFORMATIONS
Abstract:
(EN) An information processing apparatus and method which are capable of using a worn recording medium as if it were a rewrite type recording medium. A physical recording position on a recording medium is controlled with the recording position corresponding to a logical address in a virtual address space, whereby an address control mechanism which does not change logical address in the same block even when the physical recording position is changed can be attained. Thus, a write-once type recording medium can be handled as a rewritable recording medium.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de traitement d'informations permettant d'utiliser un support d'enregistrement de type mémoire à écriture unique et lectures multiples (WORM), de la même manière que s'il s'agissait d'un support d'enregistrement de type réécriture. Une position d'enregistrement physique sur un support d'enregistrement, est commandée à l'aide de la position d'enregistrement correspondant à une adresse logique dans un espace d'adresses virtuel. Il est ainsi possible d'obtenir un mécanisme de commande d'adresses qui ne change pas l'adresse logique dans un même bloc même lorsque la position d'enregistrement physique est modifiée. Ce système permet d'utiliser un support d'enregistrement à écriture unique à la manière d'un support d'enregistrement pouvant être réécrit.
