lead-in is not the problem; I can detect that easily. Even if I make the
lead-in sequence longer, it does not get detected by the machine. Like I say,
I suspect there is something different about either how the Data Recorder
writes the data, *or* how it plays it back, and that should be duplicatable
either in software or with a trivial analogue circuit.
