Fast disk start system

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #8019936.

A disk formatter (DF) for a rotating storage medium includes a target sector identification module that determines a block of target sectors of the rotating storage medium based on a read/write command signal. A current sector identification module determines a current sector of a read/write head. A DF control module begins a read/write operation at a command start sector that is different than a first sector of the block of target sectors. The command start sector is located within the block of target sectors.
