The number of bytes on one track depends on the device type

3330 / 3350 / 3380 / 3390

Anuj (I think) posted a link to an IBM page that showed the number of bytes for each of the device types, so it might be worth using the search button at the top of the page to look for that one.

Please refrain from such use of English slangs, there had been disagreement about such a use..Take care.

Just google for 'IBM 3390'. I doubt there are any 3330 / 3350 / 3380 still in use, except maybe in a museum.

Hi,
